With Pink being her favorite color, along with one of my favorite Stampin' UP images,I thought this combination would be perfect for her card.
Stamps: Crazy For Cupcakes, So Many Scallops
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics RV23, RV34, YG17
Paper: SU Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, and Regal Rose, along with some Making Memories DP
I also used Stampin' UP's Wild Wasabi striped ribbon, stampin' dimensionals, both the scallop punch and scallop border punch, and can't forget the Star Dust Stickles to give those cupcakes some yummy glitter shine!
Lots of love and birthday wishes are being sent to my daughter Jocelyn. I hope she enjoys her special day!

Happy Easter everyone! I just love this little bunny which is dry embossed using a template from Lasting Impressions. There isn't much stamping done on the card, the words came from one of those $1.00 clear stamp packets from Michael's.
Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and Lavender Lace from Stampin' Up, and designer paper from an unknown manufacturer purchased at Michael's.
Ink: Basic Black, and white pigment ink
I also used some pink & white gingham 1/4" ribbon purchased at Michael's.
Whether your day was spent with family and friends, or you just relaxed in front of the tv, I hope you all enjoyed Easter day. :)

Stamps: Upsy Daisy from SU
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Close to Cocoa
Ink: Chocolate Chip & Creamy Caramel
I also used Stampin' UP's new Top Note Bigz die. These dies were made to go along with the Sizzix Big Shot that they now carry, but I just used it in my Cuttlebug and it worked fine. Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and lots of crystal Stickles were used to give the flowers some great sparkle!

The small greeting on the mailbox is from a tag image from Stampin' UP. I just used a black marker on the rubber so I would only get the small greeting and nothing else. The small hearts were all stamped and individually cut out. They are all from various Stampin' UP sets. I cut the end of the mailbox image so I could stuff all the little hearts inside.
The ink colors included Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery, Riding Hood Red. Rose Red and black Stazon.
Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Real Red, and Close to Cocoa designer paper.
I also used watercolor crayons with a blender to do the grey color of the mailbox. Can't forget the small red heart brads and my ticket punch from Stampin' UP.

Isn't it great when you get a card in the mail "Just Because" and not for any particular reason? I was snow bound today along with a bad cold and it was the perfect opportunity to create a card...and it's been so long since I've been able to, that it was just what the doctor ordered! LOL
I wanted to use a stamp image that I hadn't inked up yet. With all the snow falling today, I decided to make it more of a spring themed card so I picked out an image from Stampin' UP's "A Flower for All Seasons" (all 4 images are adorable) along with a small greeting by Endless Creations.
The background paper is SU Lavender Lace and the rest of the paper was from a mat pack of designer paper called Emma from the Making Memories Kids collection. The white paper is watercolor paper.
Ink: Black Stazon, So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Regal Rose and Lovely Lilac
I also used the scallop border punch, dimensionals and Rhinestone brads from SU, Marvy punches, and some pretty Prima flowers that I've had forever but never used. :)
