Cupcake Wars




Using Stampendous Birthday Chick stamp I masked the chick and stamped only the mouse with the cupcake. I then made several tags for upcoming birthday presents. Using Spellbinders oval dies, Penny Black Celebration sentiments, Elizabeth Designs Tag dies and others made it tons of fun to make these fun celebratory tags. Other supplies included: Echo Park Party Time 6x6 papers, Mirror gold cardstock, Twinery Caribean blue for the 1st tag. Translucent, party confetti, and the same papers from the first for the second tag. DCWV Turquoise glitter paper, Core'diations embossed cardstock in yellow, and Ranger Distress Platinum Glitter and Sparkle and Sprinkle turquoise glitter used with Fineline glue tip for the 3rd tag. Many ribbons: magenta silk and tulle (Hobby Lobby), gold and ecru ribbon from Target, Turquoise sheer organza from Recollections.

Altenew Balloon Thanks card

Using Altenew Baby Balloon Stamp and die set along with my Platinum 6 die cutting machine, made this very easy and relaxing to die cut and color. The Sentiment is from Altenew Signature words die cut in black and yellow and then layered on top of each other. The balloon pattern paper was a piece from a scrap pad I was given. I added the yellow cardstock piece to add to the design of the card.

Altenew Climbing Clematis Rectangle Fine Frames Card



Altenew is a fabulous company and I'm so enthralled to buy their fabulous products!!! Here is another Thank You card to send to my awesome friends who are bringing me meals after last week's foot surgery (EPF) since I can't put weight on it till October!!! So I made this with my foot straight up and me laying down!!! Of course I used my remarkable MISTI tool of course!!!!! Really helped even hold the fine frames in place after putting glue on them!! I did get up and used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 to die cut everything though. ;)
Here's what I used:
Altenew Cherry Blossom Mini Ink Cubes
Altenew Tropical Forest Mini Cube ink set
Altenew Climbing Clematis Stamp & Die Bundle
Altenew Fine Frames Retangle dies (The Circles and Retangle bundle is on special today, btw)
Mirror Gold and Neenah White Cardstock
MISTI
Small Tip Glue Applicator and tip

I layered the color inks with the Layering flower stamps on my MISTI starting with the lightest and moving to the darkest. Did likewise for the leaves as well. Die cut the images out, and the Fine Frames. Arranged on my card and held them on my MISTI with the magnets till I liked where to place everything. Then with my Small tip Glue tool I carefully placed all of them in place. Hoping to feel better to keep making more of these but as we all know, we have good days and bad days, and I have a couple of bad days, unfortunately. So grateful for my family and friends taking care of me!!!

Altenew Climbing Clematis Thank you card


I love this 2018 release by Altenew called Climbing Clematis stamp and die bundle which is what I used on this Thank you card. The ink set are their Cherry Blossom ink cube set. For the leaves I used the Tropical Forest mini cube set. I then used the Altenew Fine Frames die set and used the largest I cut out of the Gold mirror cardstock, as well as the Signature Words Die Set.
Note: This card is a direct copy of Lydia Evans except for the sentiment in the middle. I am just learning to use this set and wanted to practice making the layered flowers. Love learning from Lydia's videos especially!!! Here is Lydia's card.
