Cupcake Party Card

I was inspired by a design on Pinterest but made it my own using the following color scheme. Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizazz, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pool Party plus the card base of Whisper White complete the soft color palette. Using the Cupcake Party set, the cupcake punch, and Curly Label punch, plus candy dots just makes this card good enough to eat!  Enjoy!

Western Bootiful Occasions!

Using the Bootiful Occasions stamp set along with the new Fringe Scissors makes for a very fun card!  The color scheme is Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie, Hello Honey, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla. Star punch accents are done with the Champagne Glimmer Paper. Oval shapes cut on the Big Shot with the Oval Framelits. The boot is stamped in Black Stazon Ink, so it can be hand colored with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker. The card uses the new Mossy Meadow ribbon behind the ovals for a little pop!  Yee-Haw! Hope you love it!

Yummy Sumthin' Sumthin' Cupcake Card

   Closed view

  Open view

The color combination of Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Very Vanilla, and Shimmery White is just so scrumptious!  I love how this card turned out using the half easel layout. The two stamp sets are Sumthin' Sumthin' and Cupcake Party. I used the Word Bubbles Framelits, the cupcake punch, the small heart punch, and hand colored the Surprise Bubble to get the two tone effect. The card is finished with the thick Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Blackberry Bliss Blended Bloom Thank you card

This is my original design using two new stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. The Blended Bloom stamp and the Watercolor Thank You (stamped in black Stazon ink). It's a little hard to tell but the color scheme is Whisper White, Basic Black, and Blackberry Bliss. I used the light Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities Marker to color the inside of the Blackberry Bliss inked bloom and finished it off with a rhinestone jewel. The Large Polka Dot embossing folder gives the card dimension. Embellishments include the 5/8 " Organza Ribbon and the Bitty Butterfly punch using Silver Glimmer Paper accented with Rhinestone Jewels. Bold, Dramatic, with a touch of Bling!

Beauty of the Season - New Christmas Stamp

Here's a start on Christmas that easy to make and easy to mail.  My original design uses the Beauty of the Season stamp set (#135779 $16.95)  showing a lovely cardinal on a berry branch. Handcoloring is just what is needed to make this card POP!  The color scheme is Old Olive, Early Espresso, Real Red, and Whisper White. Use your Stampin' Write marker to carefully color  the bird, branch, and berries. Then finish it off with another new set called Christmas Bliss (#138897 $15.95) for the verse of your choice. The verse set is photopolymer and if you use the piercing mat as a base you will get beautiful stamped images on your cardstock.  I stamped the verse in Early Espresso, then punched the verse out using the Modern Label punch and finished by sponging it lightly with Old Olive ink. The ribbon I used is retired but the new catalog has a great alternative in the 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Real Red.

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!

Feeling Sentimental Masculine Card

I was inspired by Amy Storie's design, so I cased it. It uses a former Sale-a-bration set called Feeling Sentimental, a retired Designer Series Paper, plus Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla cardstock. It's a simple design that can be adapted to whatever you might have on hand. I love the masculine look, so I made a bunch to have on hand.
