Something Very Sweet

Hello again!

I'm happy to be back with my very first attempt with the delightful Something Sweet stamp set and coordinating cups...

It took a little trial & error to get all the dimensions just right so that the punched circle was centred & so that the little photo anchors closed the card properly, but in the end I got there! I really wanted to ensure that the sweets could be consumed withouth the card being destroyed. After all, it took a lot of time to create - ha ha! And I must say that I'm quite happy with the end result. What do you think?


Whisper White, Chocolate Chip & Pretty in Pink cardstock, Chocolate Chip & Pretty in Pink, circle punch oval & scallop oval punch, sweet treat cup, little flowers, photo anchors, brads & marshmallows.

Remember Me?

Remember me? No? Well, I don't blame you. What a crazy time these last few months have been. Hopefully, now that school has started again & everyone is back into their routines, things will start to settle down.

Here are a couple of masculine cards that I made quite some weeks ago but didn't get around to posting until now...
Stamps sets used were Sense of Time and Vintage Labels from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration catalogue. The large circles were cut using the Circle Scissors from the Summer Mini catalogue. This tool is fantastic!
The smaller circles & the oval shapes were punched out.
Colours used were Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip. Ink pads used were Chocolate Chip & VersaMark. The Tearing Edge (another great tool) was used to tear the cardstock evenly.
The finishing touch were some silver brads.
Well, I hope you're all off to a great start this year. Take care & I hope to be back soon.
