Live Love Cards/July Challenge Masking

Live Love Cards   July Challenge Masking

Today I finally got this card made for the July Challenge at Live Love Cards. Before, I tell you about my card and list the supplies I used let me tell you a little about Live Love Cards.
Live Love Cards was created by Darlene DeVries. She's a talented lady who has been stamping for 8 or more years and card making for 5 or more years. I've been a follower of her blog and her YouTube channel for quite some time so earlier this year when she created the site LiveLoveCards it was a no- brainer for me to jump right in and after reading what the site was going to be about and a fee of $2.50 a month or $27.00 a year I leaped on the $27.00 a year. She calls this site video-centric exclusive for card makers of all skill levels. She uses a variety of supplies, including Stampin' Up. Her sister is her Stampin' Up demonstrator and together they have set up a way to give back or pay it forward whichever way you like to look at things. Her sister donates a portion of her sales to a charity for foster children. That was just a quick blub about the site, if you are not familiar with Darlene and her site please click on the link above and check things out, there is so much more than I have described.
This is the first monthly challenge I have participated in. I'll put a list of supplies at the end of this post.
I stamped the cupcake on the panel then stamped a cupcake on a piece of masking paper, cut that out and applied that over the cupcake image. I then stamped the sand and the clouds and colored the cupcake. I added the strip of orange polka dot paper to the left side to match the clouds and assembled the card. I applied the heart sequin, the stickles, and popped up the sentiment.
I really hope a lot of you check out this site, Darlene has lots of video tutorials and product comparisons, plus, plus, plus. 

Supply List:
Stampin' Up Products-Coastal Cabana card base 4 1/2 X 5 1/2, Island Oasis DSP, Whisper White card stock, Inks: Coastal Cabana, Hello Honey, Soft Sky, alcohol markers, Stamp Sets: Work of Art, Party This Way, Bitty Banners Framelits, heart sequin.
