Cupcake Dreams


Sweepie is turning 7 next month and this is the card I made for her.  She is growing up to be quite a young lady that sometimes it seems too fast.  She requested that I make her a "grown-up" card and not a little kid's card.  So this is the card I made for her.  I think it is whimsical without being childish.  I would feel comfortable giving this card to an adult.  I would even give it to a guy if I changed the Primrose Pink to a more masculine color.  I didn't use any stamping on this card.  I just used my SU cupcake punch and an embossing folder.

Recipe:
Stamps:  None
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, WW, Pool Party, Primrose Pink, Calypso Coral, DP
Accessories:  Cupcake Punch, Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Button, Corner Rounder Punch

Happy Happy Scrap Birthday


Here is another quick birthday card made with designer paper scraps.  I changed things up a bit by making the middle more vibrant and colorful strip wider and layered it on top of the other strips.  I used my scallop border punch on the ends.

Regal Scrap Birthday


This card is just like the one from my previous post but I used deeper colors to make it more masculine.  Again, I cut strips from scraps of designer paper and clipped the ends to make colorful banners.

Bright Happy Birthday


My stash of birthday cards is running low so I decided to make some quick cards using designer paper scraps.  I trimmed the DP to 1-inch wide strips and varied the length.  I then cut then ends to make banners and flipped the edges a bit.

Welcome Savannah!


This card was made for a family at church that welcomed a new baby into their home.  I CASE'd it from this card I found on Pinterest.  I used the same stamp set, layout and banner idea but I changed the colors and used the onsie to spell out Savannah's name.  This was a cute and fun card to make.
