Mouthwatering Cherries

Hello! I have a quick post for you today. Today's card uses the Mouthwatering set and the Sweet Shop DSP. I used the cute cherry dsp as the background. The cherries are stamped in Calypso Coral and then cut out. For the sentiment I used the Labels Collections Framelits die to make the label. I cut out one of the labels and then I ran it through the Big Shot again postitioning the die so it basically cut the label in half. This works well for some of the bigger/longer sentiments. Then I added some rhinestones next to it to set it off. Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Mouthwatering, A Word For You
Paper: Sweet Shop DSP, Lucky Limeade, Crumb Cake
Ink: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Black
Accessories: Labels Collections Framelits Die, Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, Rhinestones, Brads

Sneak Peek!

Hi!! I interupt this week of Mouthwatering birthday cards to show you a sneak peek from the upcoming catalog in June. This card uses some fun new papers and a cute little stamp set. Of course I am in love with all of the papers in this new pack. It was hard to pick which ones to use for this card but I went with the one that had some Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo. I do have another card for next week that uses quite a few of the papers. We have had a couple of nice warm days here so I think that's just getting me in the mood for spring/summer and all of the colors in these papers help too. So for the card, I used 2 of the papers from the Summer Smooches DSP. I die cut one of the labels from the Labels Collection Framelits Die. I used a new stamp set called Bright Blossoms for the flowers and vase. I then added a sentiment from Friendly Phrases. I finished it off with some rhinestones and Island Indigo ruffled ribbon.
These papers and stamp set will be in the upcoming catalog but you will also get a chance to purchase these products during the month of April. How exciting! I will have more details on this promotion in April.

Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Friendly Phrases
Paper: Crumb Cake, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Black
Accessories: Island Indigo ruffled ribbon, rhinestones, Labels Collection Framelits Die, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch

Glittery Birthday

Hello!! This week I have a couple of fun cards using the Mouthwatering set from the Occasions Mini. This is a great set for summer birthday cards or even year round birthday cards. Who wouldn't love an ice cream cone birthday card! I used the Sweet Shop DSP from the Occasions mini for the background. I stamped the ice cream cone 3 times and cut out each section and layered them with dimensionals. I then layered this onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that was embossed with the Designer Frames embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment from Party This Way in Lucky Limeade. I also used a strip of the silver glimmer paper (LOVE this stuff!). And the final touch was a Melon Mambo bow. I really like all of these bright colors together. I am so ready for spring/summer to get here soon! I will be back in a day or 2 with another Mouthwatering/Sweet Shop birthday card.

Stamps: Mouthwatering, Party This Way

Ink: Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade

Beach Wedding Invites

Happy Friday! I am sorry that I have been MIA over the last month. I have been in invitation overload!! I just finished wedding invitations for a friend of mine. Now I am working on bridal shower invites for my future sister in law and then I have their wedding invitations to finish up by the end of the month. I do hope to squeeze in some cards on the blog here in the meantime. I plan to have some sneak peeks of a couple of new products from the new 2012 - 2013 Stampin Up catalog. In the meantime, I will share with you the invitations that I did for my friend's wedding. She is getting married on the beach in Florida at the end of June so she wanted something tropical looking. Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend her wedding since its at the end of June and I am due a couple of days after. Who knows, I may even have this little baby by then! As a quick side note, we found out about 2 weeks ago that we will be having a boy so that is exciting. Now we need to get working on his room among a million other things we have to do. :)

But back to the invites. I used some non SU! stamps for the palm tree leaves and the starfish. The colors used are Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. I love how these turned out and she was very happy with the result.

Stamps: Palm Tree (non SU!), Gifts from the Sea (non SU!)
Paper: White, Calypso Coral
Ink: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade
