Birthday Bakery {Hostess Set}

The new Basic Pearls Jewel Accents are backed with adhesive, so sticking them on any project is simple. Here, I decorated some of my cakes from Birthday Bakery (Hostess Level 1) with them!

I stamped the cakes onto Whisper White and colored them in with Copic Markers. Across the top and the bottom, I paper pierced the white card stock and layered it onto Pink Pirouette.

The base is Crumb Cake, layered with a scrap of Shades of Spring DSP I had in my desk drawer. Across the front, from top to bottom, I wrapped a piece of 1″ Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around the DSP and tied a smaller piece into a knot at the top. Then, I attached the stamped layer to the base with stampin dimensionals.

Tote-ally Tess: Sending a Little Love


I just love this Tote-ally Tess stamp. I guess I never got on the Stamping Bella kick so this is all so new and exciting to me! Since this is a Valentine’s day card, I stuck with the classic (in my mind) Valentine colors–pink, red, and chocolate. Speaking of chocolate, I just had a great idea!! Tess could be holding a chocolate, or a chocolate heart box! I’ll get on that but for now, I’ll tell you about this card.

The base is Kraft card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in the polka dot pattern. I stamped Tess onto whisper white card stock in Chocolate chip ink and colored her in with my Stampin Up Markers. The heart she’s holding was made with the Small Heart Punch and Real Red card stock. I attached it with a Stampin Dimensional. Next to her, I stamped the “love you much” from Well Scripted in Real Red ink.

I layered the stamped image on Pink Pirouette card stock and adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP with Stampin Dimensionals. Then, I tied some 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the DSP and attached that to the Kraft base with Stampin Dimensionals again for a layered effect.

3 Little Monkeys Jumping…Valentine’s Day Card


If you have kids I’m sure you know where that title comes from! Instead of 3 little monkeys jumping on the bed, I decided to have them jumping on big red hearts.  I know we’re about a month and half away from Valentine’s Day but I love that holiday because it involves a lot of chocolate!

This card uses a few new stamp sets from the Occasions Mini including Fox and Friends, Well Scripted, and I {Heart} Hearts, all of which I bought in the new clear mount option. The Occasions Mini goes live Tuesday January 5th for anyone who is interested.

The base is Pink Pirouette card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in my favorite polka dot pattern. I stamped the monkey from Fox and Friends 3 times in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Underneath, I stamped the dotted heart from I {Heart} Hearts in Real Red ink twice. The hearts the monkeys are holding are from I {Heart} Hearts, stamped in Real Red ink and punched out using the new Small Heart Punch, attached to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

Along the bottom, I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the Chocolate Chip DSP (which is attached to the base with Dimensionals). The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Real Red ink on Pink Pirouette card stock, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I attached it with Dimensionals and also Paper Pierced the scallops to coordinate with the polka dot background paper.
