Birthday Cupcake

a cupcake birthday

Here’s a birthday card I made for my fantastic upline last week.  Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Amy!

Because I am really drawn to a clean style with straight lines, wrinkling up dsp and giving it a “messy” look is quite unnatural for me — it just doesn’t feel right.  However, I like the look and decided I needed to use it a little more.  However, you can see that I didn’t quite let go — it doesn’t look very distressed in the photo, does it?  🙂  I guess old styles die hard.

Have a great Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

happy birthday, cupcake

I made this card for a sweet friend last week (hope you had a fun birthday, Tami!).  This stamp is from a Sale-a-Bration set called Patterned Occasions.  It’s a very versatile and fun set.  And you can get it for FREE with any $50 Stampin’ Up purchase.  The papers are from another Sale-a-Bration offering — Sycamore Street dsp, and the Pool Party and Island Indigo ribbons and the button are also another Sale-a-Bration offering — Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button pack.

I hope you have a great Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s a simple card using one of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets, Patterned Occasions.  I used the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  I love how clean and simple it is, so I decided to just really stick to the sketch (well, as much as I can anyways :)).

I love the color scheme in the Sale-a-Bration Sycamore Street designer series paper — Island Indigo, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit, and Tangerine Tango.  They are bright and fun colors.

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
