Cupcake thank you card

I made this cupcake card for my neighbors who were nice enough to bring cupcakes over to the house from the local bakery that just opened up in town (not that we really needed them, if you know what I mean).  This is the first time I had ever welded a shape together with my Gypsy to make a card, and it was sooo easy so I’ll be doing that again Smile 

Here’s my card ~



What I used ~

All paper is from Stampin Up! – Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Garden Green, and the polka dot paper is from the In Color DSP.

I used a Viva Décor Light Blue Glitter Liner to make the sprinkles on the top, and my gel pen to finish it off.

Yabba Dabba Layout

I got the paper dolls cartridge last week and saw the Flintstone people and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.  I’ve had this picture of my stepson in a frame for 13yrs and it was time it made it on paper Smile

The background paper and the volcano is Core’dinations paper.  I sanded the top of the volcano to give it the lighter look.

You & Me layout

Last night I went to a crop and had no idea what I really wanted to work on.  Ever have those moments where you really wanna scrapbook but you just have no idea where to start, well that was me last night.  I looked through books and stamps for inspiration and nothing was coming to me Sad smile  I looked through my bag hoping something would jump out and scream “USE ME”, and I saw a photo in my photo box that did just that!  I actually had tried to scrap this photo a couple of weeks ago at the house and I knew what I wanted to do with it but just didn’t have the right paper to get it to work.  Here I was, going to try again….It worked, just as I saw it in my head!!  It’s a very simple, clean layout so I hope you like it, and as usual my family gives me inspiration even when I’m out and about Smile 

DSCN4496 What I used ~

Bottom patterned paper is from Stampin Up! - Woodland Walk DSP.  I’m not sure you can tell from this picture but it’s wood grain, I fell in love with it when I saw it Smile
