Cupcake Saturday

I have been wanting to make one of these cupcake gift boxes for several days now and finally had the chance. This is from a free video on The Papercrafter's Library by Andrea Walford. It was so much fun to make and I can't wait to use it for wrapping up a small birthday gift. The colors and tag can be changed to suit the occasion or person. I chose to use Blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip because I love pink. With a touch of red glitter paper, it looks good enough to eat.

Blissful Friday

I love the Sale-a-bration set Bliss. My card today was inspired by one by Patty Bennett at created. I loved the simplicity of the layout. I changed it up by using Love Letter dsp on mine. I also used the Designer Label Punch and the Oval punch. My ink colors were Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel (yes, I know it's retired, but I just can't give it up!). I just think it blends so well with the other browns. I hope your Friday is Blissful too and I hope you enjoyed my card.

Another Weekend Project

This weekend I completed a class on blog writing and creation at Univ. of Texas Arlington's Continuing Education Dept. So I hope you find my blog a little more enjoyable to read. Please bear with me as I continue to improve.

I found time to create one more card this weekend in between doing the laundry, taxes, shopping, and baking cookies. I've seen so many cute cards made with the Fun Flowers die, that I knew immediately that is what I wanted to do. The supplies are as follows: Stamps: Elizabeth. Paper - Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, and Not Quite Navy cs and Newsprint dsp. Assessories: Vintage Wallpaper, Perfect Polka Dots, and Square Lattice embossing folders; Fun Flowers die, and a retired Circle brad for the flower center. Ink: Not Quite Navy.

Finally time to stamp

Today I finally had some time to get back into my stamping room after three weeks.  Boy, did it feel good to get my fingers full of ink again.  I've been wanting to use my Build a Bloom set and punch for a few weeks now and today was the day. It took me awhile to get this card to look the way I wanted, but I'm happy with the results.

Details:  Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossoms Petal Punch.  Paper:  So Saffron, Red Riding Hood Red, and Very Vanilla.  Newsprint dsp.
