Tiers of Treats 2

Ever since I saw this stamp on Eclectic Paperie, I knew I had to have it. I not only love sweets but I love this stamp. I layered a piece of white cardstock with Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery. I embossed all three pieces of colored cardstock using my Textile embossing folder from Cuttlebug. To add a little shimmer, I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to my yummy treats.

A Card for DSS....

I made this card for my DSS. Her Birthday is coming up and wanted to make her something special. Happy Birthday Secret Sister...

From The Heart...

This card is really "From The Heart". I used Regal Rose for the card. I embossed a piece of Pretty in Pink with the Hearts embossing folder. The scalloped edge was done with the corner punch.

Starbucks Bags with My Pocket Card...

I got this cute bag from Starbucks. They are only $9.95 and they come in 2 different styles, a Ladybug or a Turtle. The ladybug bags are red and black and The turtle bags are yellow and green. These cute bags contain stickers, crayons and a large doodle pad. (A perfect gift for any age) :)

My pocket card was inspired from these cute bags.

IC80 "Cake"

This is for Challenge IC80. Here is the challenge, they supply the picture of what they were inspired by, you design the card. I saw the cake and knew I was up for this challenge.

I used Black for the card, layered the cake tiers with White and pink cardstock. The polka dots were done using different punches. I stamped the middle layer with doodle This and wrapped red ribbon around it. The top tier of the cake was stamped with All-Around Argyle from the hostess stamps. To finish the card, I added some black, pink and red stars with pop dots.

Featured Stamper Challenge

The Featured Stamper Challenge on Sunday is Pure-Genius's Please visit his gallery for wonderful cards and idea's.

I first stamped my sentiment on the corner of the card then ran the card through my cuttlebug. I stamped the flower, vine and petals on white cardstock and cut out the pieces. I used stampin' dimensionals so the card would pop.
