Celebrate One Cupcake at a Time!

I got this cupcake paper at Archiver's a few months ago and love it paired with the cupcake from the Darling Dots hostess set from the last SU! catalog. I used the same layout I used on this Thoughts and Prayers card, so the birthday card came together really quickly. In fact, I ended up making a few of them to have on hand.

The cupcake paper is layered on Creamy Caramel and then on Whisper White. The cupcakes were colored with Creamy Caramel (cupcake base), Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, So Saffron (cupcake tops), and Regal Rose (cherry). The inside sentiment says "celebrate one cupcake at a time" and is from Sweet Little Sentiments, another hostess set from the last SU! catalog.

Thanks for looking!

Baby Congratulations

I recently found out that a friend of mine was expecting, so I made this card to send her my congratulations. I've had this pregnant lady stamp from Michael's forever, but this is the first time it's ever seen ink!

I had a lot of fun with this card. I love the new Melon Mambo in-color! It's the only one I've ordered, but I got the cardstock, ink, DSP and matching ribbon so I'm set with it.

I'm running short on time right now, so I won't go into detail on the card. It should be pretty self-explanatory though. I have a few others I've stamped recently that I'll try to share soon as well.

Thanks for looking!
