Punch Art Mickey Symbol on Birthday Blast Background

Celebrate with Mickey

When I saw the Birthday Blast stamp set, I knew that it would be a great backdrop for this card. The large star stamp really makes the Mickey symbol pop off the card.Now is a great time to stock up on all those lovely Stampin' UP products. Sale-A-Bration is going on so for every $50 (before tax and shipping) in product that you buy, you can choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

Blessed Thank You

The Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack is packed with beautiful shabby chic papers in a 6x6 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.

A Cute Cupcake

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, and Crushed Curry.

Ombre Valentine

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.
