Cupcake Stamped Set

I have a set of cards today that I made for a friend who is a cupcake baker.   I used kraft paper and solid pink and yellow cardstock.   The cupcake stamps are all from Studio G and the punch that I used is one of the Martha Stewart punch around the page.   It's such a great, useful gift for people!

Sew Thoughtful!

This particular card was for a friend's mother who had given me a gift.   She quilts with some ladies for different charitable reasons but, one near to her own heart is breast cancer.   So, I combined her love of quilting with the pink for breast cancer.   The print paper is the vintage paper tops of thread pools, from Jillibean Soup 'Homemade' 6x6 stack.  I cut the thread and quilt square cut from Country Life at 2 1/2" with the layers.  I used the Tim Holtz embossing folders to emboss the pink paper and the zig zag stitch across the bottom and then I hand stitched the brown stitching up the side of the pink.   The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms 'The Charmed Life'.

A Peachy Thank you!

This fuzzy peach was cut using  Just Because Cards , the Peach at 2 ¾”.  I used flock to make the peach look fuzzy and then Glossy Accents on the leaves .  The frame in the back was cut from another cartridge but I didn’t keep track of which.  I then used  a Martha Stewart border punch and punched a strip of paper on both sides to make the vertical border, with a little strip of the mat paper down the middle of the border.  The mat paper is My Mind’s Eye ‘The Sweetest Thing’ Paper and the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper. 

On the inside, I copied the same border punch and used an Inkadinkado sentiment.
