Sweet Cupcake

Hello!

 

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~

Happy Bear-thday

Happy August!! I’m a week late in saying that lol…I have created a little but haven’t been blogging anything. Not sure why…is blogging losing its appeal or am I just too busy?  I use my mobile devices so much more and find it hard to make time for the computer (which is so much easier when adding graphics/links and such for challenges!)

 

Anyways, I have about 15 minutes left to get my card entered for the sketch #459 at Mojo Monday!  I used my new MFT BB Beary Special Birthday stamp set. The bears in the set are so cute!!  I paired my bear with It’s My Party paper from Stampin’ Up!

Christmas in July 2016 Days 5 & 6 + Lotus Flowers

Hello!  I finally got back into my craft room today to start catching up on Christmas in July!

 

My first card for Christmas in July Day 5 uses Stampin’ Up! and I am entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge – N is for No Rules.

I used the Among the Branches stamp set and the Woodland embossing folder. The patterned papers are from the All is Calm designer paper series.

My second card is for Christmas in July Day 6 and uses Verve stamps and Carta Bella paper. I used texture paste with a stencil from MFT which I heat set. I added some stickles to the branch image.  I am entering this card into the Anything Goes challenge at Craft Rocket Challenges.

SU Celebrate Today

Hello!

 

Tonight I am sharing the card I made for my husband’s birthday. I used my Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today stamp set and coordinating Balloon framelits to create it. I used the current sketch at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration for the card layout.

 

2016 Card 60 - Mike bday SU Celebrate Today

 

My color combo from the list I made up is Calypso Coral (my favorite!!), So Saffron and Island Indigo.  I added Smoky Slate as a neutral for the embellishments.  I really like how these colors look together.  Since I didn’t have to mail the card, I was able to pop up the balloon, add some thick baker’s twine and a few buttons.

 

Here is the sketch~
