Simple Cupcake

These are very simple cupcake cards for card class. The card is cut using the Wild Card cartridge. I ran the candle flame upside down through the Xyron, and added some glitter. The frosting was run through the Cuttlebug with the swirl embossing folder. I think the red one can be used for just about anyone, and the hot pink one is more girly. I can always use a few extra birthday cards in my stash. These cupcakes are making me hungry, but, there is no way I am turning on my oven in this heat! For now, cardstock cupcakes will have to do! tfl..............d

Is it fall yet?

I saw this pumpkin stamp yesterday and HAD to buy it! The stamp and the word stamp are both by Judith. The word stamp is on a wooden mount with three other sayings, all in one stamp. Too fun! It has been in the low 100's here and I think I am ready for fall already. I added black Stickles to the hat, and Crystal Lacquer to the pumpkin's nose and smile. Ahhhhhhhhh.................fall..............can't wait for the cooler weather. tfl......d

Cupcake border and punch.

This little cupcake border is a Whipper Snapper stamp and the cupcake is a McGill punch. I cut one of the cupcakes off of the stamped image to make the border a bit shorter, and used a Tonic punch for the four holes along the side. This card was made out of the scraps I had left over from the samples for the lss. I will drop these two cards off to them tomorrow and see if there is something else there that catches my eye to play with...........tfl................d

Maybe a cupcake will help?

I think this saying is too cute! Love it. The little cupcake chef is from Inky Antics. I added some stickles to the frosting on his stack of cupcakes, and used my Copic Spica pen for the cherries on the cupcakes on the patterned paper. I love this cupcake paper. It is so blasting hot here! In the 100's and too hot to go anwhere but into my stamp room to play. Thanks goodness for air conditioning. tfl.....d

B is for Baby Boy

Another sample card for my local lss. I cut the letter b with my Cricut, using Base Camp. I love that cartridge! Base Camp and Doodlecharms are the two I have always used the most. tfl................d


I have a few stamps from my lss that they want samples for. This Penny Black girlfriend stamp is so sweet. I made one girl comfy and one girl, girly. I used the Copic Spica pens to make her outfit "blingy" and shiny. We had a breakthrough tonight. Our new little rescue doggy finally had the courage to come into my stamp room and hang out while I stamped!

Relax! I love this Penny Black stamp. The little hedgehoggy looks so comfy. Cut out and popped out some small pieces on this one.......the daisies, bows, butterfly, and bear. Added some Stickles to the bows and butterfly and some Flower Soft to the daisy centers. It was nice to get back to my stamp room. I could not get Shelby to come in with me. She stayed out in the family room and had an afternoon nap. She will have to get used to stamp room..........I'm in there a lot. Maybe she just needed a little "me" time :)

My forever home

I made this card for Kelli, the sweet foster mommy who has been taking care of our little doggie for the past two months. We should be getting our new little one soon. This house card is on the Wild Card cartridge. This cartridge sure has some cute card cuts on it. Lots of different shapes and envys to match. I think this card is out of proportion. The window cut is too big, but, it was fun to play with anyway. tfl.............d

Our new furbaby

Look who we're adopting! This sweet little girl was picked up by a high kill shelter and was RESCUED by MuttsnStuff. She was pregnant, and pregnant dogs are euthenized. After being fostered by her sweet foster mommy, with her three puppies for two months, she is now ready for a forever home.....and that home is with us. After she is spayed on Monday she gets to come home and get spoiled. She has had a rough two years, but, from now on, she will be loved. Thank you MuttsnStuff and thank you Kelli for saving this sweet little girls life.
UPDATE............she is getting spayed tomorrow morning (Tuesday), so we should have her in a few days.
