Make a Cake With the In Colors & New Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!


I love the bright colors Amy used for this adorable birthday card!

Originally posted on Stamp With Amy K:

I used the Make a Cake and Create a Cupcake stamp sets along with the retiring 2012-14 In Colors to create a card to share with you today.  My card design was inspired by  Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #164 .  The twist this week is a Sweet Tooth.  I hope all of that cake is sweet enough!!

Make a Cake - Stamp With Amy KScreen Shot 2014-04-21 at 5.16.02 PM

I started by adhering a panel of Raspberry Ripple card stock to a Gumball Green card base with SNAIL.  I adhered a panel of Birthday Basics DSP to a panel of Gumball Green card stock with SNAIL, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the images from the Make a Cake stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Crisp Cantaloupe, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Bermuda Bay and Summer Starfruit inks on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement of…

Down Again

So my vertigo has returned and it has been a week already.  Usually it is only a couple of days so this may be another long one like the 5 months last summer.  I can look at some other Blogs and see what others are creating so I will be rebloging some of those that I love.  I am not sure how long it will be until I can start creating myself again but I am hoping real soon.  Thanks Dahlene

I need your help one again!

I have been trying to find a great way to take pictures off my cards. I have tried doing it in my bathroom because it has the most light and then I tried going outside but it is hard for me to do it that way.  I also tried to take them on my desk with using 2 lights sources.  Does anyone have a better way of taking great pictures?  Thanks Dahlene

Friend to Friend

This card started out with a totally different color scheme than what it turned out to be.  It’s funny how your ideas can change just by looking at the paper.

With this card I started using more of a tan color scheme and ended up with more of a Grey tone and before I knew it my card came together fairly fast.

I got the idea for this card from Kristina Werner that she made for her Friday focus pattern paper #2 post, I love her layout. I am sorry the lighting is off and I have been trying to find the best place to take good pictures, obviously I have not found it yet.

20140412_232539As far as the supplies I used…. I am down with vertigo again so I can’t get that info for you but I wanted to post anyway.

I think the stamp set is spring garden, basic Grey ink and cardstock and the friend stamp is from the paper pumpkin starter kit all from Stampin Up.  I hope you like it. 20140413_124629

Stampin’ Up! UK Double Oversized Tea Light Box Tutorial


It am amazed at how Sam can create the cutest boxes. She showed in this tutorial how to make the front so cute just by using a scallop boarder punch…I wish I could think of this like that.

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Double Oversized Tea Light Box Tutorial

I love tea lights. They make a room feel that smidge more homely. But I really love oversized tea lights. I’m one of those people who’ll have 10 small ones burning in one room, and don’t even go there with how many I light each night at Christmas. Put it this way, I’m lucky if a bag of ikea tealights lasts 3 nights…. So oversized tea lights which last more than twice as long are fabulous inside coloured vases and jars. We have them all over the place.

But while I realise that in some places they’re not overly common place, check out your local supermarket and those funny shops that seem to sell everything and nothing!

My Girly Sympathy Card

The other day I made this card for a friend then realized that it was a little girly.  I am trying to play around with designer paper and I think I still need to work on it.  Last night I was watching some videos on card making and I came across one that Kristina Werner Designs and she happened to be talking about designer paper and she had several videos devoted to it.  I was so excited to be able to watch and learn from her. What is so funny is that I made this card last week and yet I got it right according to Kristina.  If you would like to watch Kristina’s videos on using designer paper please go Here I believe there are 4 of them.


Oh by the way it looks like one of my dogs hair got stuck on the leaf of my card…LOL

So the supplies I used:

Stampin Up Whisper white, Regal Rose, Always Artichoke card stock.

I also used Rose Rouge 1/2″ ribbon seam binding & the new Banner punch.

I used a die to cut the sayings with but I am not sure what company they came from because they were a gift when I purchased my die machine.

The sayings were typed on my computer but I cannot remember the font, sorry.

The Patterned paper is from Colorbok Designer paper Light Bright 6×6 paper pack.

The flowers and from Prima Got Flowers Medium Bright and some colored sequins and the leaves are punched from Martha Stewart leaf punch.



Deepest Sympathy

I am glad when I can send a nice card to someone I know when they are grieving but I wish they do not ever need to send one.  I have a friend that just lost their mother and mother in law and at first I made a card that was girlish but then I realized that it was more for a man who I needed to send and I wanted it to be simple.  This card came together pretty fast which is funny because I can spend all day trying to get it right.

Supplies I used:

Stampin Up Night of Navy Card stock, Night of Navy ink pad, whisper white card stock  and Stripes embossing folder.

Stamps from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings

Brown ribbon & brown twine metal brads from Michaels

Designer paper Colorbok Jewel Box
