Lotso Cards!

I have several cards that I made over the weekend that haven't posted yet, so here they come!

This first card was made for my best friend from high school who just found out she's pregnant with her first child! I used Holly's sketch from the Dirty Dare '08 event on Splitcoast found here!

Paper: So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Watercolor paper, Dp (all SU!)

Stamps: $1 Stamps (all Studio G)

Ink: Stazon Black

Accessories: Velvet Ribbon (Wrights Prestige Ribbon), Heart Brads (Making Memories), Oval Cutting System (Creative Memories), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (ProvoCraft), Cuttlebug (ProvoCraft)

The next card I have for you today is another one made for the Dirty Dare '08. This challenge was to make a card with a cupcake on it! I pulled out this Bella and went to town!

This challenge was hosted by Taylor and can be found here!

I had some of this dp sitting in my scrap pile, so that's where I got my color scheme from. Everything else just fell together from there!

The cupcake icing is covered in yummy pink stickles!


Paper: Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Kraft, Sage Shadow, Watercolor Paper, (All SU!) - DP (unknown vendor)
Ink: Stazon Black (Stazon) & Ruby Red (SU!)

Stamps: Cupcakeabella (Stamping Bella)

Accessories: Oval Cutting System (Creative Memories), Scallop Circle Punch (SU!), 1 3/4'' Circle Punch (SU!), 1 1/2'' Circle Punch (Paper Shapers), 1'' Circle Punch (EK Success), 1/2'' circle punch (Marvy), Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (SU!), Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon (SU!), Stampin' Up Markers, Pink Glitter Stickles (Ranger)

This next one was made for the limited supplies challenge from Friday over on Splitcoast Stampers . We were to make a simple birthday card. It could only have 4 layers or less, ribbon was the only allowed embellishment, and we could only use our ink to color... no watercoloring, markers, etc!

I pulled out Birthday Whimsy and this is what came out!

I think it came out nice and I was proud of myself for using the white card as my base, I never usually do that!


Paper: Bali Breeze Dp, Purely Pomegranant, Whisper White (all SU!)

Ink: Taken w/ Teal, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie (all SU!)

Finally we come to my card for today! This was made for the Technique Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.
We were to make a card using the Blintz oragami fold. Here are the directions! It's a lot easier than I thought it was going to be!

Paper: Brilliant Blue, Watercolor Paper, Bashful Blue, Jersey Shore Dp (SU!)

  1. Wow! You've been busy! What cute cards!

  2. Wow, look at all the cards you've made! I just was looking at my OLD blog that I never really even got started... and I saw a message from you saying I won your blog candy! Bummer, I'm sure you've given it to someone else by now... so sorry I never responded, but my blog that I keep up with is actually, so I never got your message! BTW, love your cards!
