Cupcakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes........

While I was out and about Thursday, after taking mom in for her scan (we won't get the results til next Thursday), I found myself close to JoAnn's and decided to go in and see if they had anything I needed (hee, hee.......needed). Woo hoo! They were having a sale! I came away with a cute "Cupcake" stamp set by Inkadinkado, a Fiskars embossing border punch and this yummy and I mean yummy Nana's Kids designer paper by DCWV. All the DCWV specialty papers were on sale for $9.99. That's $10.00 off the regular price. I just couldn't pass it up!

I've been having so much fun playing with all of them and have some fun stuff to share with you.

The first card is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. My fellow sketch team member Jennifer Meyer's is her featured stamper this week. Way to go Jennifer! Here is my card for the challenge. It's really bright!




Recipe-Stamps: Cupcakes (Inkadinkadoo), Row of Cupcakes(Stamp Happens) Paper: Green Galore, Apricot Appeal, Nana's Kids DP (DCWV), White (Georgia Pacific). Inks: Black Stazon, Green Galore, Apricot Appeal. Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Piercing Tool, Sponge Dauber, Fiskars Embossng Border Punch, Markers (Stampin Up) Stickles.

While I was playing around with another piece of the Nana's Kids DP I came up with an idea for a box set that looks like a bag. I cut a strip of DP at 4 1/4 inches and then scored it at 5 1/2 inches and 6 1/2 inches. I then took a seperate piece of card stock that was 4 x 4 1/4 , scored at 2 inches and folded and attached only the back. I then made a box that is 4 1/4 x 2 x 1 and attached it to the inside bottom and back piece of the bag. Here is a picture of it with the front open with the three 4x4 cards that I made to go inside.






Here is a picture of the set with the "bag" closed.



Here is the bag all by itself!
The front of the bag just slides up inside of the ribbon on the inside of the flap. I will have a template for you on Tuesday but I am gonna be super busy for the Memorial weekend! The supplies for the cards and bag are the same as the card for the challenge with a few added accessories (word window punch, tag punch) and Barely Banana card stock.

Hope you all have a wonderful and safe Memorial weekend! Thanks for stopping by me little corner of the world! TTFN

I love this Inkadinkado cupcake set, I just got it this past week (I had to order it off of Joann.com as none of the store had it my area). And I just used the Row of Cupcakes on my brother's b-day card, isn't that fun to use (I used stickles as well with it)! I've had DCWV Nina's Kid Glitter stack for a while but finally got around to using it a couple days ago for my mom's b-day card. I bought it specifically for b-day cards but for some reason didn't get around to using it until this past week after making quite a few b-day cards over the last month.

Anyway, I absolutely love the cards you have done with all these cupcake stamps, beautiful job (as all your work is)!!!
