The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge for this week is a “Sketch Pad*” Challenge.

 

 

This week I was inspired by the sketch above as well as a need to create several birthday cards.

I love the versatility of this card, by simply switching up the Designer Series Paper, colors or sentiment you could create a variety of cards quickly without giving yourself a brain cramp!

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Beautiful Day
  • Paper: Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Soft Sea Foam & Whisper White card stock
  • Ink: Shaded Spruce
  • Tools: Daisy Punch, Triple Banner Punch & 1/2″ Circle Punch
  • Accessories: Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Nature’s Twine, Faceted Dots

It’s All in the Details:  To give my flower extra fullness and some sparkle I used a combination of Whisper White and Sparkle Glimmer Paper. I also like to add small embellishments in odd numbers for added interest.

Birthday Wit

The Birthday Wit Stamp Set from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog lets you say happy birthday with a sense of humor.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp set!

I knew as soon as I first laid eyes on it, I had to have it.

BUT…

I think it can be easily overlooked in the catalog because it doesn’t have any pretty images with it…just pure and simple sayings that make me giggle.

Stampin' Up Birthday Wit Stamp Set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. For details and inspiration, click through to my blog. #CrackedPotStamper #birthdaywit #loveitliveitshareit #lovewhatido #handmade #birthday

Funny story…

Prior to being introduced to Stampin’ Up! and card making, I thought buying cards was a huge waste of money – I refused to do it!

I had to drive to the store, spend a substantial amount of time trying to find the “perfect” card not to mention the outrageous amount of money it cost…only to be read once and then thrown in the trash.

Isn’t it ironic that I now am in the business of cards…

But to my defense, I find card making very therapeutic and I love it when something that I have created brightens someone else’s day.

And it gives me time to relax, be creative and unwind from the craziness of the world.

This card only takes a few minutes and it it fun!!

DOstamperStars Thursday Challenge #193: Sweet Layered Cupcake

Time for another Thursday Challenge. This week it is a 

What do you think of when you look at this picture?

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #193-Home Sweet Home

Here is what I saw…

DSC#193-Sweet Layered Cupcake card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

What do I use to create this beauty? aka Supply List

Stamp Set:  Sweet Cupcake

Paper:  Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder, Thick Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer

Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette

Embellishments:  Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter

Tools:  Cupcake Cutout Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Big Shot Die Brush, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Multi-Purpose Glue, Stampin’ Trimmer, Stampin’ Dimensionals

It’s All in the Details

  • The thing that makes this card fabulous is all the LAYERS!
  • For the cutout “Sweet”-I cut the word “Sweet” out of each of the 6 colors used and then layered them together using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to stick them together.
  • After I had all of them adhered together, I then put a layer of glue (again with the Fine Tip Glue Pen) on top to make it shiny. This is so much fun and adds a little extra oomph!
  • Add a little glitter on the cupcake to make it extra yummy and sparkly because who doesn’t love glitter!
