Belated Valentine

These are a couple of the cards that we made at my last Stamp A Stack.  I really love the owl two step punch.  This was the card we all made for Valentine's Day:

And then we made a couple of little gift cards.  It was great so see all the different coloured owls that the girls made.

Simple Birthday Thanks

Last year all three of my children had birthday parties (I know, what were we thinking??).  With parties come gifts so I purchased the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp to make thank you cards for all the guests that attended each of the birthday parties - did I finish the cards - no - but that's another story....

Anyway, I was looking at the stamp the other day thinking it was a shame that I hadn't used it for it's intended purpose, and that I probably wouldn't use it again until we celebrated another birthday.

All of a sudden I realised that it didn't have to only be used as a thank you stamp.

Using a black marker I coloured all the lines of the cupcake that I wanted to stamp.  I stamped the image onto pretty in pink and whisper white card stock, and bashful blue and whisper white card stock.

How cute are these cards??   I've now got a selection of cards on hand for the birthday parties my kids get invited to AND I'm using a stamp that I originally only thought could be used as a thank you stamp.

I've used the square lattice embossing folder (from the Summer Mini Catalogue) on so saffron card stock behind the cupcake.  I love this embossing folder!!  The numbers were created from the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies.  I used red fine galaxy glitter as the sprinkles and the number and cherry were created with real red card stock.
Don't forget that Sale-A-Bration and the Summer Mini Catalogue end on the 31st of March.

sale-a-bration time

This is a fantastic time of the year isn't it?  Why?  Because the kids have gone back to school?  Perhaps.... Certainly the house is a whole lot quieter and I'm not asking 3 kids to stop fighting - but I digress.......  No, it's a fantastic time of the year because it's sale-a-bration time again.  What does this mean?  FREE STAMP SETS.  Simply spend $100 on Stampin'Up! products between now and 31 March and you get to choose from a selection of free stamp sets from the sale-a-bration catalogue.
