Crazy About Cupcakes and In Colors!

I am working on using all of my current stamp sets by Stampin' Up! This time I used the Crazy For Cupcakes stamp set. The background is doe using Stampin Up's Backgrounds 1 Texturz plates, which I ran through my BigShot. I used Melon Mambo and Very Vanilla Cardstock. The image is stamped in black StazOn ink and colored using my Stampin' Write markers. (The cupcake liners are actually a mix of two colors, as I made a booboo and started coloring them with the Going Gray instead of the Bashful Blue that I had meant to color them). Then I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to properly line up the sentiment over the top of the cupcakes. And I finished it all off with my Ticket Corner punch.

Again, no sun. I may need to come up with another light source!

A card for Ann Marie

Some of the PhillyInkers are taking part in a mail swap where we make one card and send it to someone in our group. We draw names of who send to. For July I drew Ann Marie. And since am so into the brayer cards right now, I decided to make her one! I used my brayer to layer the colors (one by one) onto the card. The inks I used were Summer Sun, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Dusty Durango. Then I stamped the Upsy Daisy image onto the labels. The cardstock is hard to tell (still no sun), but it is Bravo Burgundy, Basic Black, and Whisper White. The ribbon is Basic Black. The sentiment is from Heard from the Heart and stamped in black StazOn.

Circle of Friendship - Using scraps

In keeping with the "use all of my Current stamp sets at least once" tradition, here is the card I made today. I used the "Circle of Friendship" stamp set by Stampin' Up! The colors are very hard to tell in this picture. My light source (aka the sun) isn't cooperating today. I may have to try again tomorrow.
So anyway, I made this card using all scraps of Cardstock. I wanted to try using a few pieces of the craps I have from differnet project. I used the following colors of cardstock, Barely Banana, Dusty Durango, Old Olive and the little flower is stamped on Whisper white. The ribbon is 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon and a silver brad. Inks that were used are Dusty Durango, black StazOn, and So Saffron.

Crazy about Cupcakes

I was playing around a little last night. I wanted to make a card, but couldn't get my creative juices flowing. But this is what I came up with. I used the "Crazy About Cupcakes "and "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" stamps sets. The image is colored with my Stampin' Write markers. The sentiment is punched with the awesome Scallop Oval Punch. On the corners I used the Ticket Punch. Cardstock colors are Pretty in Pink, Real Red and Whisper White. All items are by Stampin' Up!

A Card for Heather Y.

Side view:
I made this card for a fellow PhillyInker, Heather Y. We participated in a card swap among some of the PhillyInkers. I LOVE making these quilted cards! They are so cool and each one can look different depending on which papers or Cardstock that you use.
For this one I used the new In Color Dusty Durango Designer Paper, Dusty Durango and Whisper White cardstock, and Dusty Durango Classic Ink. I used all of the following punches also: Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1 1/4" Square punch. I also used the Top Note Die exclusive to Stampin' Up. I finished it all off with some Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain ribbons and some Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I added some little stitch marks so it looked more like a quilt. All items are by Stampin' Up.
I hope she likes it!!!

In Colors Friend Card

I made this card for the Swap tomorrow night for the PhillyInkers group. I used the NEW In Colors, Dusty Durango Designer Series Paper, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry Cardstock. The sentiment is stamped in Dusty Durango Classic ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. The sentiment is fro the Stampin' Up set "All Holidays". It is a great set, full of sentiments! I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for proper positioning of the sentiment.

Stampin Up's Stampin Write Marker Club

Have you always loved Stampin Up's markers, but just don't have the money to put out all at once to purchase them? I have a solution for you!
I am starting a new Marker Club that will include the NEW IN COLOR markers AND the Neutral markers! This club will include 4 members and last 4 months from August-November.(or whenever it is full)

Each month, each member will get One color family (12 markers) of the wonderful Stampin' Up markers. The Color Families are: Bold Brights, Earth Elements, Rich Regals, and Soft Subtles.

On the month you are "Hostess" you will receive:
Your set of 12 markers from one color family and in addition ALL of the following items:
1 set of the Neutral Markers (4)
1 set of the NEW IN Color Markers (6) These are NEW to SU's catalog!
1 Level One Hostess Stamp Set You choose
$15 in free product of your choice!
AND the Storage Case that holds the 48 Markers from the 4 color families!

And what does all of this cost you ask? The cost is just $50 per month for 4 months. You will also pay shipping from me to you for 3 of the months ($4.80 provided postage doesn't increase...again) On your Hostess month, I will pay the postage to you. That is a savings of about $10 (larger box)! All items will be sent out via Priority mail. You will be given a Delivery Confirmation number, and all packages will be insured.

If you sign up you must commit to all four months. It takes 4 people to make this work, so that everyone can get hostess credit! This is a great way to get all the markers that SU has to offer, but spreads the price out over 4 months. At the end of four months, each member will have a complete set of the 48 markers with the Storage Case, all 4 Neutral markers, all 6 of the new IN COLOR markers, a Level 1 Hostess set and $15 in FREE merchandise.

Please email me if you are interested!
