These lovely cards are all from my unit's stamp of the month swap. (Hello, Heartprints!) Just looking at them makes me want to plan a little par-tay! No party plans today, but my scrapbook club is getting together here tomorrow. One of the embellishment options will be this same stamp set, and I'm looking forward to everyone's creations. It will definitely be fun. (We'll have to crank up the stereo today as we clean house to make that portion of the weekend fun!)
Read on to find the deets about these amazing cards. Remember, the February stamp of the month, Piece of Cake, is only available for a short time! We all used the Topstitch paper pack to unify our creations for display.
Clockwise in the first photo: Carla R. random stamped "You're the Sweetest Thing" lightly all over the Heavenly Blue base, plus she added some dots of Liquid Glass to the cake itself. Tanya S. heat-embossed the sentiment and highlights of the cupcake image with silver embossing powder. Camy E. paper-pieced her birthday cake. Doesn't it look delicious? Chris H. stamped the cutest cupcake/Make a Wish border across the bottom of her card. So sweet!
Clockwise in the second photo: Bridget M.'s paper pleating is divine! It looks like a little skirt at the bottom of her card. The details of Pam's card have got to be seen up close and personal! She used eyelets and pearls to accent the Vineyard Berry circle, plus she pop-dotted the cupcake image on top after coloring with markers AND paper piecing parts of it. The next card is my creation, which you've already seen if you've been here before. Last but not least is Taralyn's scrumptious cupcakes complete with Liquid Applique "frosting." [BTW, don't you like how I invent craft-related verbs? I am convinced that Webster's needs an overhaul to include "pop-dotting."]
Here's a picture of them all together (from my Open House and for tomorrow's class). Just looking at them makes me happy!
