Cupcake card re-visited!

This ”Hello Cupcake” stamp set is the first one I got from Sale-a-bration free sets and also the first card that I published at the beginning of the Sale-a-bration sale.  There’s only a few days left if you want to get it before it’s gone! Email me your order and get this set for free!

This card is very simple and quick to make. For the card base, I used Blackberry Bliss card stock (although it almost look like Black on the picture!) The background is the new beautiful purple called Highland Heather, that I stamped all over with the confetti image from the new ”Birthday Cheer” stamp set. (available in the 2019 Occasion catalogue). I stamped the cupcake in Early Espresso and Highland Heather ink, with the Blackberry Bliss for the small flower. Super fun and quick!

Two more frog cards!

I had so much fun making the previous frog cards that I had to use the other images from the same stamp set to make more cards!  This ”So Hoppy Together” Stamp set will  be available ONLY until the end of March, so if you want it, make sure to send me your order by email by March 26!

I made this first card for my nephew who’s learning how to do unicycle, so it was the best image for him! He’s also a good juggler!!! This card was quite simple and fast to make. I used the Blends marker to color the frog.

1 template: 2 cards with ”So Hoppy Together”

Sale-a-bration is almost over! Make sure to get your free stamp set or item by March 31!

Today’s cards are made using the super cute ”So hoppy Together” stamp set (one of the Sale-a-bration set!) I wanted to show you how easy it is to transform one card template into 2 different cards! The first one was made for Valentine’s Day, while the second card was made for my brother-in-law’s birthday. For both cards, I used Lemon Lime Twist card stock for the card base and Granny Apple Green for the background. I used that same ink color to stamp images randomly from the set. I also added a small heart for the Valentine’s Day card in the background, from the ”Jar of Love” stamp set.

Varied Vases in Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy

One of my new favorite punch in the new catalogue is called the “Vases Builder Punch” and it matches the Varied Vases stamp set. I’ve used it to create many cards and I’m sharing one with you today that we’ve made at my last Stamping class.

The Yellow and Navy blue complement each other in this card, giving a nice contrast!  The Softly Falling embossing folder adds some texture to the card.

Climbing Orchids and Jar of Love

My card today is the card I made for my Mother’s birthday. I used the beautiful Climbing Orchids stamp set, with the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the jar stamp from “Jar of Love”. The orchids were stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then colored with the Aquapainter. I really like the watercolor effect!
