Alex Menzlewski Cheers

Here’s a fun card using just 2 stamps. Alex made this and I think it’d be great for lots of occasions – wedding, drinks with friends, a birthday…

She stamped the tiny wine glass randomly in the background. She then used another piece of paper to stamp the big wine glass twice and made it look like it was actually “clinking”. She added some glossy accents to the big wine glasses and added some fun letters “Cheers”.

Here’s another fun birthday card sent in by Alex. She’s used the same balloon background paper as in the first card, but this time it’s all about the cupcake! Yum. She’s added lots of sparkle not only in the pink frosting but a little outline circle around the cupcake. I love the addition of all those buttons!

Lynne Jardine - Milk and cookies birthday

Here’s a wonderful birthday card made by Lynne. This stamp, like the card posted on Friday was actually in one of my Christmas supplements as well.

I just love all the layers and details, including the little faux stitching she did with a pen. She said she colored everything with watercolor pencils. To finish it off she added clear gloss to the glass of milk and some red glitter to the doggy’s collar. Just grand!

lori-say cake lori-say cake detailTalk about YUMMY! Lori’s next project is raining cupcakes. I love the hot pink frosting with the added little sparkle.

Lori sent in what she did:
Watercoloring is all the rage right now with stampers and paper crafters…and this cupcake image is perfect for this technique!  I stamped the cupcake several times on watercolor cardstock with archival ink and colored with watercolor paints When dry I brushed the frosting with clear shimmer (Wink of Stella). To create the sentiment window, I punched out a 1 1/4″ square on the panel. Then I punched a scalloped frame…and adhered it flat. The entire panel is mounted to card base with foam adhesive. The sentiment is stamped on white cardstock, trimmed and adhered with foam adhesive. Sequins adhered to each cupcake for the finishing touch. Yummy!

barb-cupcakes2-smUsing a single stamp Barb really made a card with impact. She found the perfect background paper covered in cupcakes! Yum indeed. I love all her layers and the way she framed the saying with orange and the rest with tan. Adding the finishing touch of the chocolate ribbon is the icing on the cupcake.

Well I apologize for the absence of new postings. It’s not because the design team hasn’t been hard at work but because the person that writes the posts, me, has had the flu! I feel like I’m back to the land of the living and can finally catch up on all the wonderful things they’ve been creating.

So without further delay, here’s a yummy card from Barb.

Barb started with a sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping. And said that one of her great nieces decided she wanted to learn how to bake and decorate cupcakes this year so she’s sending this card to her. I love the embossed background dots – but then again, I LOVE polka-dots of all sorts. I also love the unconventional colors she chose for the cupcakes. To top it all off she add a little bit of bling.
Any way you look at it these are yummy yummy yummy!

estella-thinthoughts-smThis is the first of a few cards that Estella over at Sandee’s Stamps in Waterford, Michigan sent in.

I love the stripes and polka dots and the fact that she made the doggy’s hind-quarters go outside the main box – almost like the tail is wagging in anticipation of getting just a little taste.

annie-toolateforcake-smSo a little bit of a confession…this is my birthday week, and even though it’s already past mid week I’ll be posting a few birthday related cards.

The first one was sent in by Annie. Oh what yum I say. She stamped Penelope and kitty Percy and the word bubble…but she actually drew the cake! Isn’t it the cutest!
