Love Birds! Good morning. I know it's been quite a while since I last posted a card. December started with a vacation, then came stamp-a-stacks, then Christmas....then...then....well you know how it goes. But I'm back with the postings. This is my take my the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #54. The stamp set is from Stampin' Up. Along with Stampin' Up Paper. The cardstock is Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. The patterned paper is Bella Birds. The ribbon is also SU, along with the three heart punch and the scallop circle punch.. The only non SU item is the huge jewel which is Me & My Big Ideas. Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Good morning! This is the card I made for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #41. The Stamp is from Penny Black and the patterned paper is Me & my big ideas. The cardstock is all Stampin' Up and I colored this super cute snowman with Stampin' Up markers. I used a few snips of ribbon I had laying around and I think the snowflake brads are from Paper Studio - correct me if I'm wrong on that one. Thanks for looking! Have a great Monday!

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #40

Since Halloween is over, that means it's time to start Christmas cards, right? At least that's what I keep telling myself. This is my card for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. I have so many cupcake stamps, but I always find myself trying something else. I used this super cute retired Stampin' Up set called Song In Your Heart. I think these carolers are so sweet. And the lamp post is my favorite! I colored the carolers with copics. I used Stampin' Up bravo burgundy, always artichoke, whisper white and a little bit of cool caribbean. The patterned paper is Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding. There isn't any bling on this card, no glitter, no ribbon, no brads....just a plain & simple card. Thanks for looking.

Baby Shower

I totally cased this card from Peauntbee. You can see it here . The paper is all Bazzil. I used my Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder on the pink parts. I also used my nesties to cut the rectangles. The stamps are all Stampin' Up, as well as the scallop punch. I colored the elephant with copics. Thanks for looking.

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #39

This is my take on Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #39. I knew I wanted to use the Turkey Talk set, which makes this card very big! I forgot my list of supplies that I used at the house, so I'll update this tomorrow when I figure out what patterned paper I used. All of the other supplies are Stampin' Up. I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color the pilgrims and the turkey. Thanks for looking.

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #38

This is my card for the Taylored Expressions cupcake challenge this week. All the cardstock is Stampin' Up . The card base is sahara sand, then I layered it with chocolate chip, riding hood red and whisper white. The felt flowers and brads in the center are also stampin up'. I used the 1 3/8, 1 1/2 and scallop punches. The stamp set is stampin' up and I colored it with copic markers. I used Basic Grey Infuse patterened paper and paper pieced the umbrella. This was such a fun sketch. It gave me a break from cutting paper for one of my 4 stamp -a - stacks! Thanks for looking.

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #37

For this card, I used the new Stampin' Up patterned paper called Autumn Vine...I just think it's so pretty. These colors are some of my favorite combinations. The cardstock is really rust, more mustard, chocolate chip and sage shadow. The tree stamp is Inkadinkado which I stamped in Ranger Espresso ink and I left the name of the company that made the circle stamps at home, but as soon as I remember I'll post that. I also used the ranger ink to sponge the edges. All the circles were cut using my nestabilities and my cuttlebug- love that machine! Thanks for looking.
