I found my camera cable! Hooray!
This is a picture of a card I made for my sister's birthday. I knew that I wanted to do a Spiral Pop up Card. I read the tutorial on this on Here is a link to the tutorial It is really easy and very impressive.
For the card, I used Stampin Up! materials. Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip paper.
I used a piece of Pacific Point 8 1/2 x 11 paper and cut it at 5 1/2 inches to make a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece and then folded to produce a standard 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card.
Then I cut a piece of Tangerine tango paper 4 1/4 by approx. 2 inches. I used the scallop border punch to do the edging. I decided to use a versa stamp pad with one of the Wow Flowers Stamps to make the tangerine paper look like a table cloth.
The cupcake stand image is from the Crazy for Cupcakes set. It is stamped in basic black and colored with markers: Real Red, Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac and Cameo Coral. The silver is actually a CM silver pen. The words were stamped in Chocolate Chip.

The images inside the card were stamped from the Party Hearty stamp set and then cut out. I used SU markers to color the stamp itself to produce the colored images without needing different color stamp pads. It is an easy and inexpensive way to make multicolor images or even to stamp images in colors that you do not have stamp pads in. The stars were also using a CM product, the small star punch.
I think this card came out so cute and was not very difficult at all.
Well, thanks for looking.
Happy Stampin'

Okay, I still cannot locate my camera cable! So, I scanned this card, the colors came out so dull! In real life it is so bright!
This is the card I made for my daughter Lily for her 4th birthday. We had a cupcake party. It was so much fun. All the kids got to decorate and take home 4 cupcakes, we had different color frosting and candies for on top. Anyway, the card was made using:
card stock - whisper white, yo yo yellow, lovely lilac and pink passion
ink pads- basic black and whisper white stamp pads
marker colors - pink passion, tempting turquoise, yo yo yellow and lovely lilac
accessories - purple eyelets, crystal effects and orchid fine cosmo glitter
I wish you could see this card in person, it is really so much more impressive. I need to find that camera cable!
Thanks for looking!

Almost a month!

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe it has been almost a month since I have blogged anything! Time flies. I have just been so busy and then sick with a cold/sore throat for a week. Now am feeling much better. I have worked on a few things , but I cannot find the cable for my digital camera! I need to find that to download my pics. I will either locate that cord or scan with my printer soon. Sorry~
