Cupcakes and Sprinkles Part 2

I am in love with the Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set called Sprinkles of Life, so I decided to use it again:


and the inside:


 and even the back:


Who wouldn't want to get this card in the mail?

I used the sketch challenge from As You See It: 

I love the simplicity, yet detailed nature of this card!

Cupcakes and Sprinkles

Here's the card I promised on Facebook a few days ago.





I made it for last week's As You See It Challenge Wednesday night, but didn't post it and then the linkity closed. I was thinking it was Thursday night it closed. Opps. Then, I decided to go to a game night on Thursday and never posted because I couldn't get my water mark program to work. Friday, I waited for the delivery guy to drop off my deck lumber and then spent hours gardening. Today, I gardened and so am therefore, finally posting.  

This picture  shows every defect on my card and I wanted it that. I kept changing my mind after I glued it and then the corners got turned up. That's what happens when I stamp past my bedtime.  

I love the Cherry On Top Paper Pack. I tried to only use on piece, but ended up using 4 designs. SO FUN!

This set is this catalog's Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set.  I love this set and I love the peace and joy RMHC bring to families in crises.

Graduation Greatness

As a teacher, graduation is one of those life events that show one stage of life has been accomplished and the next is just beginning. I love attending high school graduation and seeing the celebration. I know I teach middle school, but they are always my students! Here is a card I CASED from Pinterest. I love black and white.



The supplies are mostly retired, but can easily be reworked with current supplies, so those are what I am including below in my supply list.

Wedding Elegance

In early May, when school was busy and I was planning my Stampin' Celebrations class, I went to pinterest for ideas and found a great card design by Glenda Calkins. I changed it up a bit, as I needed to prepare for 32 cards, but I do want to credit her for my inspiration.



I found the sentiment and the flowers fit just right. The pearls fit perfectly in the flowers, and the Itty Bitty Flower Punch was the perfect accent. I love it when a plan comes together. I am so lucky to be a part of a network demonstrators in which sharing ideas is expected and accepted! 


Although the Designer Series Paper I used is no longer available, the same background can be obtained with Whisper White Craft Ink and the Something Lacy Background Stamp.

Classic, Manly Birthday

Guy Greetings was carried over from the Occasions Catalog into the BIG catalog.  A promotion, of sorts. I am so thrilled to be able to continue to make more great cards using this set. Here's a classic card sketch for a classic stamp.


The Typeset Designer Series Paper seems to be made for this set. I used Basic Black ink to coordinate. The woodgrain tidbit was a bit of extra fun to add. The circle is Baked Brown Sugar, but Crumb Cake or Soft Suede would look great too. Maybe the new Tip Top Taupe?

AWESOME!

I love bright cards. I love rainbows. I love easy and simple. I love the As You See It Challenges by my Stampin' Friends.  Today, they all come together:


Not only did I make a one layer card, I used one stamp set.  Layered Letters Alphabet. I did, however, use 8 ink pads  covering ROYGBIV plus Basic Black and my Project Life Journaling pen to add the doodle. The gold sequins add a bit of sparkle.

I made another version, with my aquapainters. I simply spread ink from the ink pad with the aquapainter. I put a big old fingerprint on the edge, so I had to trim it and create a two-layer card. I love this one, too. Which is your favorite?




My inspiration? This week's As You See It Challenge is ONE LAYER!



As always, if you want to buy anything I used to make  my card, shop online via my Stampin' Up! store.

School's Out for SUMMER!

and here's a post to celebrate:


How cool, huh? I used new items to create this fun pocket card. Well, the Treat Bag Thinlits aren't new, but I didnt' get enough chances to show them off this spring.  I love the bright colors from the Cherry On Top Suite. The new In Colors are fabulous together! Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, and Delightful Dijon coordinate so well.  I used the Washi Tape for inspiration and added the stamped images from Bohemian Borders and the letters from Layered Letters. All were photopolymer stamps, which made the whole thing SUPER EASY!

See the little banner tag? It uses the new Cotton Paper, which is a thin, lightweight, yet sturdy paper. I tried to rip it and it didn't!

Anyway, I plan to use some of these cards for my students. I think the design will appeal to the youth of today.
