Crazy Cupcakes or Week?

Hello! I can't decide if it is a crazy week or just a Crazy for Cupcakes Birthday Card. It has been a crazy week, it is Spirit Week at my daughter's high school so that has meant dressing up in theme every day. Monday was the 80's, Tuesday was Multiplicity Day (dress like twins, triplets etc), Wednesday was dress up day but today was the hardest. Today was dress like your favorite Character from a Movie, book or show. We struggled with this one and finally she ended up with a poodle skirt and it Sandra Dee from Grease. I even forgot to take pics of today's outfit. Tomorrow is easy it is Blue/White Day for our Team colors but between that and our usual busy schedule I am one tired mom. So since I know you didn't come here to hear about my week I do have a card for you and several more to share over the next few days. Today's uses the Crazy for Cupcakes Stamp Set. I have had this set for a while but it is one of my favorite for Birthday cards. The colors are pulled from the new Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. The base is Riding Hood Red with Basic Gray, Whisper White, and Pear Pizzazz Card Stock used. Ink colors are Basic Gray, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red Classic Ink Pads. To make the cupcakes even more fun I added 2 way glue and Dazzling Diamonds on the icing after the cupcakes were colored with a Blender Pen. The cute little hearts along the bottom of the card were added with the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders which are in the new Occasions Mini. All the supplies for this card can be purchased online through my website or by calling me. I would love to show you how to make this or any of my cards and during Sale-a-bration is a great time.

Razzleberry Birthday!

Good evening! Hope you had a wonderful Monday! I wanted to share another one of the cards we did at last Wednesday's Birthday Card Class. This one uses one of my older stamp sets, Upsy Daisy. This set is a wood mount set and has seen a lot of use. I started with a base of Baja Breeze Card Stock and added accents in Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo and Early Espresso. The image is stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock. We used the First Edition Specialty Paper and the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper. The accessories are Mini Library Clips and Metallic Brads. The card really is quite simple and the layout is cased from page 116 in the Idea Book and Catalog. Going to keep this short tonight as I have a table to get set up for tomorrow nights Sale-a-bration Open House. If you would like to attend just send me an email and I will have supplies ready for you to stamp. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening, Tonya

So Grateful!

Good morning! It is cold out today, wow I really dislike winter so this card gives me hope that I will see spring and the pretty flowers again. I know that it is a ways off and we still have lots of cold days ahead but I can dream right? The Occasions Mini is such a wonderful one and the Apothecary Art Stamp Set is quickly becoming one of my favorites. It is such a fun set to watercolor and with the Coordinating Labels Collection Framelits cutting out your stamped images is a snap. This card using Crumb Cake for the base, with Whisper White, Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette for accents. The image is stamped with the Basic Gray Classic Stamp Pad before we colored it with a blender pen with Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue and Marina Mist. There are Pearls added to the sentiment and we used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch along both sides of the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper. If you would like to purchase the supplies to make this card you can order online at My Online Store or by contacting me to help you place your order. Thanks for stopping by today. I will be photographing new cards today as I still have a lot to share. Have a great day! Tonya

Manly Birthday Card

Hello, it is Thursday and another busy week at our house. I am going to share with you a birthday card from last week and also one from the Birthday Card Class that is this week. This card is a little more manly than some of the others. I used two stamp sets Bring on the Cake and Build a Blossom. The colors are So Saffron, Poppy Parade (off stamped) and Night of Navy. The base of the card is Crumb Cake and the Designer Series Paper is from the Pocketfull of Posies Collection and the Regals Designer Series Pack. I used a three mini brads on the upper right side of the main Designer Series Paper but a little extra something but other than that the card is pretty easy to make. I saw this layout on Pinterest and just had to make is a Stampin'Up! card. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the card. I will be sharing another birthday card tomorrow so please come back by for it. Have a great day, Tonya

Valentine's Hearts

Hello and Good morning, I am going to try and get a post done every day for the rest of the week. Today's card is one that we did last week at club. We used some of the new Occasions Mini items and made this sweet little Valentine's Day Card. The colors are Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, Whisper White and Baja Breeze. The hearts are cut with the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die and the Baja Breeze piece of card stock has hearts added with the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The new Embossing folders are only 1" wide and can be added anywhere your card. I added some Early Espresso Baker's Twine around the card and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and has been stamped with Early Espresso Classic Ink on Whisper White then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Tomorrow I will have another new card using more of the new Occasions Mini items. If you haven't taken a look at it yet, don't wait it is a great mini.

Angry Birds Birthday Card

Hello and thanks for stopping by, I have lots to share with you since I have been stamping up a storm and had two birthdays last week. The card I have for you tonight is from my youngest son's birthday party. He loves Angry Birds and when I saw this tutorial I knew I had to make him an Angry Birds card. I made some size modifications and added a white bird but the idea is very much the same. I decided to base my layout on a tshirt that Jaxon received for Christmas. I used Basic Gray and then added the Happy Birthday from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set. I colored in the Birthday with the Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers. If you would like to know what punches and colors I used leave me a comment and I will make a list, but for know lets just say there were a lot of punches out on my table while I was making this card. Thanks again for stopping by and have a great evening, Tonya

Occasions Mini and Thank You Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Occasions Mini and Thank Yous Blog Hop. I have two projects to share with you today both that use some of the new products available in the new Occasions Mini. If you haven't taken a look at it yet, WOW! It is amazing and has so many wonderful new products but lets get onto the projects for today.
The first is a Gratitude Journal that I made for my daughter to write in through the upcoming year. I thought the new Apothecary Art Stamp Set with the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper was just what her journal needed. I added Basic Gray Satin Ribbon and made her a coordinating ink pen. I also used the new Edgelits Dies to add the curved portion next to the ribbon. I had to cut it three times along the Designer Series Paper to get the piece long enough but with a little patience it worked well. The Apothecary Art Set has a coordinating Framelits Label Collection Die that has 6 different sizes. I used two different sizes on this journal.

My next project is a card I made for my Grandma's Birthday that was yesterday. I used a lot of the same items as the journal but a few are different. I started with a base of Island Indigo and cut the bottom edge with the Edgelits Die, then added the textured line with the coordinating Texturedd Impressions Embossing Folder. I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Twitterpated Collection and added it behind the front to extend the card front even with the back. Then I started to decorate. I used the Apothcary Art Stamp Set again only this time I used the largest stamp and stamped it with Basic Gray Classic Ink before using a Blender Pen and Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, and Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pads to color the image. The Happiest Birthday Stamp is also included with the Stamp Set and I used Island Indigo to stamp it. I added a couple of Twitterpated Designer Buttons (which are just so cute) on each side and then attached it to a Riding Hood Red Framelits Label. Sorry for the off lighting but I was in a hurry to deliver the card to Grandma and didn't realize it til it was to late. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop. Be sure and leave a comment so we know that you stopped by, Tonya

The next stop on your blog hop is Dawn's Crative Chalet. Have fun looking over her projects.

Last Day!

Hello, I hope you all had a wonderful break. I enjoyed ours very much and got to spend time with family and friends. Now the kids are slowly headed back to school and it is time to get back to work. I wanted to remind you that today is the last day to order from the Holiday Mini and that time is running out to check out the great Clearance Rack items. If you need to place an order please let me know and I will be more than happy to help you.
Since today is Tuesday there are new Digital Downloads for My Digital Studio. You can check them out my heading over here. One of my goals for 2012 is to use My Digital Studio more and get those pictures that I have been taking off the computer and out for all to see so watch for more digital projects in the future.
I have been doing some rearranging in the Class room but now I think I will start some stamping so that I have a project or two to share with you later this week. Thanks for stopping by and for you patience while I took a break. Have a great day, Tonya
