Sweet and Sour Birthday Bakery

Finally, I have card 2 done for my birthday card class. I stuck with the same colors as the last card because they are bright and cheery.
I have made a couple of cards similar to this one in the past. I thought the stamp set "Birthday Bakery" makes a great window front for a bakery. In case you haven't figured out why I used the birthday saying from "Afterthoughts," I will tell you. Since I designed this to look like a bakery, underneath the happy birthday it says, "Call when its time for cake." I thought that was great because we call a bakery to order a cake. Okay, maybe dumb to some of you, but I thought it worked well. I did want it to look like a store sign.

These are the supplies I used to make this card. All items are Stampin' Up!

Cardstock: rose red, pumpkin pie, very vanilla, and sweet and sour specialty designer series paper; Stamp sets: birthday bakery, afterthoughts, and itty bitty bits; Tools: curly label xl punch, and scallop edge border punch; Classic ink: rose red, versmark, and stampin' write marker rose red; Accessories: retired 1/4" rose red grosgrain ribbon.

Thank you once again for stopping by my blog. As always I love to hear from you. Please leave a comment.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Take A Spin Sweet and Sour Birthday

Happy Easter! Tomorrow I will be celebrating what Jesus did for me. I also wanted to tell you that I am sorry I have not posted in a while. Some things that were not expected happened. My mom had to have triple heart bypass surgery. Besides working and doing what I need to do at home, my mom has needed help too. She keeps getting better everyday. I know she will be happy to be able to do things without being out of breath and tired all of the time. Enough of that for now.
This is the first card I have made for my upcoming birthday card class. I still need to make 3 more of them. I have had this one day for about a week, but I am just now getting around to posting it.
I used sweet and sour specialty designer series paper. I love the bright colors! For the stamped image I used pumpkin pie and rose red markers on the take a spin stamp. The pom pom trim is melon mambo and unfortunately, it was a sale-a-bration item which is no longer available. They may have something similar when the new catalog comes out in July. We will have to wait and see. I used rose red, very vanilla, and daffodil delight cardstock. The 5/8" grosgrain ribbon is pumpkin pie. Of course, I used the game spinner hand on the take a spin image. The only punch used on this card is the scallop trim border.

In the end, I think this makes a very cute birthday card. You can tell me what you think by leaving a comment. Thanks.

Now go-n-stamp!!

2 more Easter Cards

I am not sure what this post is going to look like when I am done with it. This is when you really need to understand html. To me, it is very boring though.

My goal was to let you see a close up of the dimension in this card, as well as, having the choice of using the card as a horizontal or vertical card.

This card was made from the Stamping 411 sketch challenge. It was Saturday sketch challenge 196 to be exact. Sometimes it is nice having a sketch that someone else has come up with to design your card from.

I do have to say this card is my favorite out of all 5 I had made. I used certainly celery and whisper white cardstock to create this. I used my Big Shot and the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I used the 5 petal flower punch for the flowers. If you didn't notice, I did not use any rubber stamping on this card at all. If you really wanted to you could always add a sentiment. I just chose not too.

The card you see below is the last one I made for the Easter Card Class. The colors are pretty in pink, concord crush, and lap of luxury designer series paper. Once again, I used my Big Shot with the framed tulips embossing folder. The bird and branches were created using the two step bird XL punch. The stamped image is from the All Holidays stamp set.

My class is Tuesday evening. It should be lots of fun. Thank you for looking at my papercrafts. Feel free to leave a comment if you would like. To be honest, I don't leave comments all of the time when I look at others blogs either. If I really like it, I will though.
