Cupcakes for you

SS-Cupcakes4you

  • Stamps –
    • Impression Obsession MC181 “Cupcake”
    • Avery Elle “Oh Happy Day”
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny Secret Garden Collection: Roses (both sides)
  • Markers – KaiserCraft metallic gel pens
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I’m doing a little catching up on cardmaking while I have a few days off. I’ve had this stamp set for a long time and it is always fun to pull something out of my stash. I decided to pick up on the roses on some of the cupcakes and repeat roses with the patterned paper. I colored the cupcakes with KaiserCraft gel pens that really work well with their 0.6mm tips for fine lines.

I created this card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #250. Unfortunately, I forgot to link it over there until the deadline had passed! Oh well! I will be linking to The Paper Players current challenge, which is #309: Something Sweet. A group of stamping friends and I have been virtually getting together for two years, so we decided to make cupcake cards for the occasion and this is mine. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey “Hillside” collection (6″ X 6″ paper pad)

I created this clean and simple card featuring the cute fox die cut from Spellbinders. I used the sketch: Freshly Made Sketches #232, with a couple of strips of Washi tape. I attached the black die-cut sentiment so that it connected to the black mat to tie the design together. Thanks for visiting.


Hi there!

  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey – “Urban Luxe”
  • Die cut (Hi There) – Basic Grey – “Urban Luxe”
  • Twine – American Crafts
  • Cardstock
  • Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

First I stamped the bird with black ink and then colored different areas with brightly colored Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I applied water with a water brush and blended the colors to complete the bird image. I found some patterned paper in my stash that matched well for the background. I used Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Sketch #237 as inspiration for this card. Thanks for visiting.

  • Patterned paper – Sizzix – “Fox Tales” Paper Pad

I used the Crafter’s Workshop stencil and applied Distress Ink through a portion of it to create the image for this card. The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #228. I mounted the white panel onto a piece of subtly patterned paper from Sizzix. It picked up my ink colors perfectly. I think I succeeded at clean and simple on this card! Hope to see you soon.

I’m still making a few New Year’s cards. I have not had a very good week for creative accomplishment, so it is sort of relaxing now to make some new cards. The “real” job is really getting in the way! But it does pay for the craft supplies! I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as inspiration for this card: Freshly Made Sketches #217. I used stamps from The Cat’s Pajamas for both the kitty image and the sentiment. Wishing you a very Happy 2016!
