Sweet and Simple Yippee Skippee

Yippee Skippee This was a card that we did for Stamp Camp a while back.  The washi tape is so great for quick and simple cards. All we did for this one was stamp the sentiment and add a strip of washi tape from the Ghingham Garden trio. The cupcakes were made using the Cupcake Builder punch. The cupcake tops are embossed and I trimmed a little piece from an Espresso cherry to create the chocolate dipped cherry. The Espresso cupcake bottom was crimped and the other was covered with the same washi tape. The Early Espresso bakers twine finishes it off nicely. Originally, I was going to put the cupcakes on another layer, but I liked the clean and simple look of just popping them up on the card base. An easy card and lots of fun to put together. Thanks for stopping by today!

Timeless Talk in Black and White

timeless talk Here is a card we did for workshops last fall. Timeless Talk is one of my very favorite, and one of the most popular sets from the current catalog. I love that the style is contemporary and vintage at the same time. I decided to use the Modern Medley DSP which is perfect for the Black and White color technique, even though the paper is black and vanilla. Close enough. The technique is simple enough. Design something using only the colors Black and White. It makes stunning cards. Stamp something happy today!!
