Sweet Cupcake



Today I am sharing a card for a Happy Birthday Cupcake swap.  I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and color challenge at Nacho Average Challenges. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to use Calypso Coral, one of my fave colors!




Using the MISTI made stamping this cupcake pretty easy! I had a little trouble with the bottom layer with the first colors I chose, a tip don’t go too dark or else you can’t see the layers. I think next time I might try stamping off with one color to make the layers blend a bit better.


Here is the sketch~



and the color palette~ one I will use again!

Autumn Wishes





Tonight I made a fall card using a cute little set from Stampin Up called A Flower for All Seasons. I love this little pot of sunflowers! I used the new sketch at The Challenge for my card layout.


2016 Card 88 - SU A Flower for All Seasons


Since the image is small, I added some interest with MFT’s Cross Stitched Circle Stax, some dry embossing and twine. The sentiment is from an old Pink by Design set called Bountiful Blessings.

27th Anniversary Card

My first card in two weeks!


I’ve been working in my room a lot organizing stamps and pulling stuff out for Fall/Halloween use next month. I was supposed to craft on my days off last week and got sidetracked by several things.  Yesterday I ended up purging part of my scrap closet which resulted in piles all over the room and other parts of the house.  I am hoping to get my room in order by the end of the week so I can craft a bit easier.


Tonight I made this card for my mom and stepdad’s 27th wedding anniversary.  Since they live up the street, I got to make it a bit lumpy because I was hand delivering it 🙂   I used the current color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. Calypso Coral is one of my favorite SU colors so I had to do this challenge!


I got to use new stamps and paper on this card! In my last order I got the Number of Years stamp set and dies, and A Little Foxy dsp.  The colors of the challenge are in this paper pad and the heart paper was perfect to use on my card! I also got the new Layering Circle framelits, really love these! I can see me using them a lot.


2016 Card 83 - SU Number of Years Anniversary


I am really happy with how this card turned out, despite not giving myself much time to get it done lol!




Have a great night!
