Inspiration Challenge -- Cutest Food

It's Saturday -- time for my favorite challenge on Splitcoaststampers, the Inspiration Challenge. The website for today was Cutest Food, a wonderful site spotlighting the yummiest food concoctions you have ever seen.

The inspiration for my first card was this beautiful Taffy Apple Rose.

I made a round card to emulate the shape of the apple, using some brown and white striped paper I found in my stash as the background. My rose, colored with Copic markers, is from a set called Spring Roses. All materials -- except striped paper -- available at Mark's Finest Papers.

Stamps - Spring Roses from Mark's Finest Papers: Speedy the Cat Collection
Paper - MFP Ripened Tomato and Snow Storm Smooth; unknown brown & white striped DP
Ink - Palette Moulin Rouge and Jardin Moss
Accessories - Circle Nestabilities, Copic markers, Ribbon
There were so many wonderful creations on this website that I was compelled to make a second card. I saw this cute little bee cake and thought it would make a nice simple note card.

I used the colors -- white, yellow, and black. Using my Scor-Pal, I scored lines around the edge of the main white panel and then stamped the sentiment from SU's Just Buzzin' By in the upper left-hand corner; and the "Hi There" from SU's Fancy Flexible Phrases at the lower right. I chose the flying bee from Just Buzzin' By,stamped her, then colored her with Copic and Prismacolor markers, highlighting her wings with a glitter pen.
