Build a Birthday

This is the new Build a Birthday stamp set.  The colors I used were all In-Colors called Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon.  I used all but the new Mint Macaron.  Base of the card is Watermelon Wonder.  I used Delightful Dijon and Rhinestones for the flames on the cake.  I cut out Watermelon Wonder flowers using the punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and put more Rhinestones in the middle.  I stamped "birthday wishes" with Memento Black ink.

Sprinkles of Life - Apple Tree

Once again, I have created another Sprinkles of Life card.  The colors I used are Mint Macaron for the base of my card.  I also stamped clouds in Mint Macaron in the background.  First, I stamped the tree leaves with Cucumber Crush on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I stamped  trunk with Tip Top Taupe on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out with the Tree Builder Punch and attached with adhesive..  I stamped clouds with Pool party ink on Whisper White and punched them out and attached with Dimensionals..  I stamped the stems and leaves with Cucumber Crush and the flower with Watermelon Wonder.  The apples are also stamped with Watermelon Water and punched out with the punch and attached with Glue Dots.  I stamped the verse with Cucumber Crush.

Sprinkles of Life - Tree and Flowers

This is another Sprinkles of Life card that I made using the Tree Builder Punch.  The base of the card is one of the new In-Colors called Mint Macaron, layered with another new In-color called Cucumber Crush.  The third layer is from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack and I used the 2" Circle Punch to create a hole for the tree and flowers to peek through.  I stamped the tree trunk with the new In-Color Tip Top Taupe on Whisper White cardstock., and stamped the flowers with Cucumber Crush and another new In-Color called Delightful Dijon.  I stamped the tree with Cucumber Crush and punched three of them out with the Tree Builder Punch to create a bigger tree.  Then added a new In Color Delightful Dijon Blossom Accent for one of the flowers.  I stamped the birds on Delight Dijon cardstock with the coordinating ink pad and punched them out with the Tree Builder Punch.  At the top of my card I created a banner using the new Triple Banner Punch and stamped "I'm so Lucky to Call You My Friend" and added the new Cucumber Crush 1" Dotted Lace Trim using Snail Adhesive underneath it.

Be the Star

This is a card I made for a swap last month and just now posting it.  The stamp set is Be the Star stamped on Whisper White cardstock with Night of Navy ink.  Then I used the Stars Framelits to cut out the star.  The colors I used are Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Whisper White.  The base of the card is Whisper White cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4" in the middle.  The Night of Navy cardstock is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and I ran it through the Big Shot using the Stylish Stripes TIEF.  The punch is the Confetti Stars Border. The Cherry Cobbler stars were punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack star. The ribbon is the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Sprinkles of Life scarecrow

Having a lot of fun making cards with the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder Punch.
The base of my card is Crumb Cake layered with Pool Party which I sponged around the edges.
The grass is Cucumber Crush cut with the Fringe Scissors.  The fence is Crumb Cake cardstock stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp with Crumb Cake ink and then cut to make the picket fence with silver brads and the 1/16" Hand-held hole punch.  I embossed the basket with Clear Embossing Powder.  It took a long time to make this card, but was inspired by another stamper named Melissa Davies.
