Cute Cupcake Birthday Card

I made this card for a swap last month, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. It features Easy Events, an all occasion stamp set with cute line drawn images perfect for coloring.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock. I used the same color, cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″, and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. To give it more dimension, I used Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber to highlight the embossed image.

As for the stamped image, I used Versamark ink and black embossing powder on Whisper White card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. After heat embossing, I colored in the image with various Stampin UP Markers. The frosting on the cupcake was embellished with Dazzling Details.

Behind the stamped image, I made a scalloped circle by cutting 2 So Saffron flowers from the Island Floral Bigz Die and layering them. Be sure to alternate the petals to achieve the scalloped effect. Adhere the scallops together, then the white circle on top. I used stampin dimensionals to attach the scallop to the card front.

The ribbon is 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon in Regal Rose and Daffodil Delight. Tie it around the Embossed Stripes layer, then adhere that to the card base with stampin dimensionals.

Christmas Stocking Card

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on my blog but I’ve been busy! I just got a large invitation order out the door, my work schedule has been more hectic than usual, and I just now had a minute to come up for air! It’s almost time to get Christmas cards in the mail so I decided to make one to get the juices flowing.

This card uses Cherry Cobbler base with a Chocolate Chip textured card stock layer. The stockings were made with the Stocking Punch. I used Very Vanilla card stock and Silver Glimmer Paper. I ran the Vanilla pieces through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to make them look like knitted stockings. The band around the silver stocking is Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalog. The ribbon is so nice and soft, I’d like to make a card that features more of it.

The sentiment is my favorite Christmas one from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Around the edge of the card, I used the Signo Gel Pen to create a faux stitched effect and to frame out the card front.

Thanks for looking. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner rather than later! My schedule has by no means lightened up but I’ll do my best to keep up!

First Anniversary Card {Happy Everything}

A year ago today I was at this wedding for my brother in law and now sister in law. This is the card I made for their first anniversary. The base is chocolate chip card stock, layered with very vanilla and Mocha Morning Specialty DSP, which I L-O-V-E. This particular pattern reminds me of elegant wallpaper with a subtle metallic sheen to it.

The medallion stamp is from Day of Gratitude, stamped with Versamark ink on very vanilla card stock and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I trimmed it out and added a brown Jumbo Basic Brad in the center. It’s adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

At the bottom of the card, I stamped “happy” from Happy Everything (retired) in chocolate chip ink on very vanilla card stock. Underneath, I stamped the other words from the stamp set: “Days, Life, Everything, Together” in chocolate chip and more mustard ink. I decided to skew them a little so I wouldn’t need the stampamajig.
