Birthday Card


My card base is from a DCWV pack of A2 cards I've had forever that I'm trying to use up. I used my scallop edge punch and teeny tiny wishes for the sentiment from Stampin' Up! I used a chocolate chip brad with a flower on it and cardstock. The pink paper is actually the color of the paper on the back of the card so I used a second card to cut up and use. From that same card I punched out 3 flowers from the pattern paper and used dimentionals to stick them on. I used the paper piercer around the edge of the pink paper.

Medallion Stamp Again!


Ok, did I mention that I loved this stamp! I used the kissing technique to make the awesome colors! I had a customer at our restaurant ask me to make two birthday cards that were somewhat "groovy" and this is the first one I came up with.

I started with my lightest color first and put it on my stamp and then sponged in the other colors. It was soooo easy and looks so neat. All of the colors are from Stampin' Up! I stamped the sentiment in rich razzleberry.
Pretty neat huh?

Hershey Bar Birthday




My boyfriends son is turning 7 tomorrow and he wanted a hershey bar cake so I went with that theme! I started out by cutting letters out in shadow at 4 inches from opposites attract cartridge in a chocolate brown paper I had laying around and then without the shadow in a light color. I used silver embossing powder and versa mark ink on each letter and heated it to get the shiny letters. I put sticky tape on the back top of each letter and stuck it to a piece of ribbon to make a really neat banner.
I then bought a box a Hershey bars and concocted the cake tower, made a ribbon out of paper and voila! We are celebrating on Sunday with a real cake but I thought this would be cool for his actual birthday!!

Medallion Stamp




I used basic black and cherry cobbler paper with versa mark ink and the heat embossed it with black powder. I didn't have any black ribbon so I embossed a black strip of paper to match. I used the ticket corner punch too!

How about I received my Stampin" Up! $99 starter kit on Tuesday that came with the old catalog and now today I got a brand new box of the the NEW ones! How awesome is that?! I'm excited!! But what I'm really excited about is my big box'o stuff that should be here tomorrow! Thank goodness I'm having the UPS guy deliver it to my work so I can rip it open as soon as he gets there. I gave him forewarning today that he's probably going to get attacked tomorrow! lol If any of you know me our restaurant is actually only 10 steps out the back door to the house but hey that's 10 less steps I have to take before I can open my package!

I can't wait to share my new ideas with you!
