A CUPCAKE AND FLOWER!!

Over the Easter weekend a few weeks back I had some time and decided to pull out some stamps I haven’t used in a while.  It was such fun to ink these stamps up again.  These are the end result.  Nothing exciting really but just some simple stamping.

The layout is based on a few cards I have seen recently.  The pennants are “in” at the moment apparently.  I won’t bore you with all the details.  I think it is straight-forward how I have created this card.  Here is the recipe list though.

Stamps: Create A Cupcake   Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise.   Card: Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White.  Daffodil Delight (Brights Paper Stack).       Other: Square Lattice Embossing Folder,  2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Cupcake Builder Punch, White Twine.

Here is the second card.

This one uses “Flower Fest”.  This was the first set on my wish list when the catalogue came out last year.  It took me a while to get it still and I have only used it maybe twice.  How disgusting is that!!  I love that it co-ordinates with so many punches.  It makes life so much easier than cutting each one out.

Stamps: Flower Fest, Create A Cupcake (greeting).    Ink: Marina Mist           Card: Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla.  Other: Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Swirls Scribbles sizzlit Die, Marina Mist Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Adhesive Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I can report too my swap convention card count is 35.  I have been cutting and stamping up a storm this week.  I ran out of card of one colour so couldn’t complete the full 20.  I don’t expect that I will get that many done in the next week.  I have lots of other things to do.

Stop by again soon.  I love your visits. 🙂

STAMPING SESSION!!

I am so far behind in my blogging.  To try and catch up a little I am going to hit you with a lot at once.  Apologies in advance for this 🙂  A couple of weeks ago I had a lovely time with my stamping buddy, Leonie N.  It was a great little overnight visit and we accomplished a lot in 24 hours.  It’s amazing what you can achieve when you don’t have interruptions like cooking dinner or picking kids up from school!!!

I thought I might spread these out over a few days but time is getting on.  I won’t be giving long descriptions on them, but really they are so simple.  I’m sure you can work them out.  After all, we worked them out even at unearthly hours in the morning!!  Who needs sleep when you can stamp!

Here you go!

This was a card inspired by a few similar I had seen around.  (Ok, well Leonie did it first then I CASED her!)

A Scallop circle card I created for a private class I did recently.  Stamp set is “Flower Fest”.

CASED from Kim here.  I love her style.

This card was CASED from Chris here.  I used the flower from “Language of Friendship”  This was stamped first and then ran through the Square Lattice EF.  Colours are Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive – always a nice combination!

CASED from Joanna here using “Just Believe”.  This was a set I haven’t used for a while.  It was good to give it a stamp up!

I CASED this from Leonie.  I wasn’t really taken with this set “Open Sea” from the Summer Mini but it is growing on me.  The DSP is Nautical Expedition also from the Mini.

Well that about covers most of the cards we did on our stamping day.  It was a fun time and I don’t think I have made so many cards at one time.

Thanks for looking.  See you again soon.
