Blessed Thank You

Thank you card with Paisleys and PosiesStampin UP Color Palette for Blessed thank you card

Shabby Chic

The Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack is packed with beautiful shabby chic papers in a 6×6 inch format.  It is perfect for making quick beautiful card like the thank you card pictured above.  The soft palette is soothing to look at and admire.  I paired it with the Sale-A-Bration gold metallic ribbon for the right amount of bling.

Another Challenge

Today’s project owes it’s life to MOJO Monday Challenge 479 and Color Throwdown’s Swatch 425.  Check out these great sources of inspiration.  I had fun with the color palette: Basic Black, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry.  When doing the 3 step stamp of the cupcake, I embossed with white powder for the final step.  The Falling Petal embossing folder gave some texture to the background as well as the numbered paper from the Party Animal DSP.

Those Sweet Cupcake framelits include the banner piece that was used on this card as well as the wish sentiment.  You can bundle the two products together and save 10%.

I cannot seem to stop using the Stitched framelits from Stampin’ UP even though they are currently unavailable. I hope Stampin’ UP brings them back.  They make such a classy edge on the cut shape that was perfect for MOJO Monday’s challenge.

Card Challenges

It is always a lot of fun to check out card challenge websites for new great ideas.  This whimsical card was created by combining two challenges.

Freshly Made Sketches #270 and  Less is More #310 inspired this Ombre Valentine.  Here is the sketch that I used for the card.  I also used the “Less is More” Colour Challenge of using Ombre shading in the color of your choice.  Please visit their blogs to see all the entries for these challenges.  Everyone is so creative.

Ombre Effect

The Ombre effect for this card was created using a Real Red Ink pad and the swirly stamp from the Sealed With Love stamp set.  Stamping with full strength ink the first time, I simply kept stamping all the way down five times without reinking the stamp.  Then I did the same thing from the bottom up. So easy.  It is a great way to get many shades of pink without using another ink pad.  Check out the great images that you get with this stamp set.


Sending Love DSP Stack

I simply love these little paper stacks from Stampin’ UP!  You get 48 of the 6×6 inch sheets in an array of beautiful patterns.  This stack is so fun with the Real Red and Whisper White color scheme.  As always, the paper is doubled sided so there are many classic Valentine patterns as well as more standard general patterns like polka dots.


Just a reminder to visit my store.  Sale-A-Bration is in full swing! For every $50 you spend, you get to pick a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!  There are so many great items this year from DSP, stamp sets, specialty ribbon and even a card tin.  Head to my store and check it out now.  Click on any item in the Supply List to go there.
