Emporium 3x3 Criss Cross cards

Here are a few more of the fun 3x3 criss-cross cards using the Creative Basics Emporium paper:

The one on the left uses the new Thank You set; the one on the right uses TLC (and some stamp-masking, blending pen and sparkles). These are super-easy to make and turn out really cute!

Cupcake fun!

I am loving the Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set- how cute are they!? Here is a 4x4 Cupcake card (for birthdays, or anyday) using the Daydream paper- in both Lilac Mist and Blush:

The cupcake base was stamped in Creme Brulee- then I stamped and cut out a second base, folded it along the lines, and adhered that onto the original base for more dimension. The sparkles add just a little bling! I used the sentiments "Celebrate!" and "It's your special Day" from Today's date on the inside. I also stamped a few candles on the inside, too.

Party at Elizabeth's!

I just had to share the fun from Elizabeth's house this past weekend:
This is Sophie, Beth's adorable, pocket-sized Yorkie. Cropping bags aren't just for paper anymore:

Here are the cards I made for Beth as a Thank You for hosting- I had her daughter in mind when I made this one with the Bella Paper and Priceless Word Puzzle Stamp (Originals Template: Fancy Five):

Here is another one for Beth- a fun 4 3/4" x 3" out-of-the-box use for Cupcake Sprinkles- it's now Popcorn! The inside uses Ticket for all Seasons, Tiny Typewriter Alphabet, Chocolate Alphabet (Small), and the stamp-kissing Technique! And the paper is from the new Animal Cookies paper packet (Originals Template: Right Spotlight):

One last picture- check out the adorable bird-house Beth covered with paper from Let's Get Together! She also used crackle paint and glitter, and I think this turned out too cute not to share!

Happy Mother's Day!

Here is one of the Mother's Day cards I created to celebrate our Mom's (I will post the second when my mom gets hers- I don't want to ruin the surprize)!

I kept this one simple and sweet with the new Bella Paper and new TLC stamp set! I also used the Originals: Overview template. More to come!
