Sweet cupcake

Cupcakes say “BIRTHDAY!!” better than any other treat I can imagine:


  • Stamps:  Sweet Cupcake
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder
  • Accessories:  A Little Foxy DSP pack, Stampin’ Write markers, Wink of Stella Clear, Big Shot, Gently Falling TIEF, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits, Corner rounder punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The Little Foxy DSP stack has wonderful designs – they’re very easy to use on a card – and I was thrilled to discover that while one side is in full Technicolor, the reverse is a design in grayscale. I have a lot of ideas about playing with those designs.

Etch-a-Bird, Etch-a-Herd



I’ve seen it, you’ve seen it, we’ve all seen it – but I still had to make it:Maui Stamper Etch a BirdThis card is so much fun to make!  It’s all over Pinterest, and I’ve seen the design credited to so many different people that I can’t trace it back to one person – and I’ve tried.  If this was your concept before the rest of the universe claimed it, YOU ROCK!

Maui Stamper Etch-a-BirdI chose the Host set Hello Love for this version, as my Hostess Club requested Valentines this month.

Maui Stamper Etch-a-BirdThe sentiment on the inside is from the January My Paper Pumpkin subscription kit.  Purchase a 3 month subscription during Sale-a-bration and save!  Current Paper Pumpkin subscribers can purchase any of the available past kits or past kit refills (first comes with stamps, second does not).

Maui Stamper Etch-a-HerdThis is the version that started the stampede.  From the Herd was my first choice stamp set from the Occasions 2015 catalog and it is perfect for this card.  We all had a pretty good laugh over the faces on these critters.  I had to resist the urge to color in a face – any face.  It wouldn’t be true to the concept.  But i wanted to do it.

Maui Stamper Etch-a-HerdI mean, what’s not to love?

If you want to make this card just as you see it, you’ll need From the Herd and Teeny Tiny Wishes (for Happy Valentines’ Day).  You’ll need Real Red, Sahara Sand, Shimmer White, Whisper White and Vellum cardstock.  This card also uses the Big Shot and the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits, a 1″ circle punch, and the Project Life Corner Rounder.  The only ink you’ll use will be Memento Black.

Look through your stash and pull out your line art stamps.  I’ll bet  you have one that’s just perfect for this card!
