CRAZY FOR BALLOONS

Here is yet another card I've created that I'm not completely thrilled with. Boy, am I ever rusty from very little stamping the past year! Ugh! I'm determined to keep plugging along until I have my old mojo back!

This card uses Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try July 2011 and Colour Q Challenge #91 of Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black and Whisper White. The balloon images are from the stamp set, Crazy for Cupcakes, and are paper pieced twice with the top layer raised up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The retired Wild Wasabi double stitched grosgrain ribbon is one of the best ribb
ons (in my opinion) that Stampin' Up! has every carried ... love the width, texture, color ... everything about it! It's so easy to work with!

RECIPE
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Island Oasis DP (retired), Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black

CRAZY FOR CUPCAKES AND CREW KIDS GIRL

Yes, I'm still using my last few scraps from the retired Simply Scrappin' Kit, Crew Kids Girl. Those of you who have followed my blog posts over the past year, know how obsessed I've been over the designer paper in this kit. Even though it's retired, I'm still using it! Amazing how many cards you can make from one of Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scrappin' Kits!

The layout for this card is from SCS Sketch Challenge #194, along with the new stamp set, Crazy for Cupcakes.

NOTES:
* The bottom 1-d panel is a self-adhesive die-cut from the Crew Kids Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit.

* There is paper piercing around the perimeter of the card.

* A Blender Pen was used to color with Wild Wasabi and Basic Gray reinkers

* Diamond Stickles (non-SU) were applied to the cupcake frosting.
*The paper piercing on the 3/4" and 1" circles behind the sentiment were created using the Punches Plus Classy Brass Template.

RECIPE
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: DP and Self-Adhesive Die Cut from retired Crew Kids Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White DP

CUPCAKE MOJO

First, my apologies for the poor lighting in my photos. I'm having to photograph at night - not my first choice for lighting conditions. ETA ... Original photo has been replaced with a new and improved version!

I have been fiddling around with this card on and off for almost a week and finally decided to let it go so I could continue on with other projects. I started out using Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #51 but ended up not using one of the layers ... just couldn't get it to work.


Remember this designer paper? Remember my obsession with it last winter? Yep, it's from the retired Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. I just HAD to try it with this cupcake image from Crazy for Cupcakes! The cupcakes image is stamped in Basic Black and colored in with Pretty In Pink and Bashful Blue Markers. The icing is covered in Diamond Stickles and the cherries are colored in X-mas Red Stickles (non-SU). The sentiment medallion uses the "happy birthday to you" image from the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set ... the image is curved making it very easy to create a circle. The cupcake in the medallion was created using the Cupcake Stampin' Around Wheel and colored the same as the other cupcake images.

Thanks for looking!

SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS83 CARD CRAZY

Today's Featured Stamper #83 on SCS is Denise, Card Crazy. HERE is Denise's beautiful gallery, and HERE is Denise's card I chose to case.

I changed everything but kept the same layout of Denise's card. Details ...

* My card uses the new stamp set Crazy for Cupcakes, and the new designer paper, Sweet Always. Colors ... Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Pink Pirouette.

* The cupcakes were colored using Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose Markers, then Diamond Stickles were added for sparkle and depth. The cake plate was colored using the Sahara Sand Maker.

* The Ticket Corner Punch was used on the main image panel, then three holes were Paper Pierced on the Pink Pirouette panel.

* The sentiment piece was created by punching Pink Pirouette CS with the Designer Label Punch, then Paper Piercing Regal Rose CS using the Punches Plus Classy Brass Template and punched with the 1" Circle Punch. Be sure to pierce first, then punch ... it's soooo much easier! The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White CS and punched with the Word Window Punch. I then punched two Pumpkin Pie CS Word Window Punches and staggered them behind the Whisper White CS piece.

* I added the 1/2" Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon on the left to balance out my card. Don't know why Denise's card seemed balanced and mine didn't ???

* The orange Dew Drops are adhered using Tombo Adhesive.
