Stampin’ Up!’s colors make me crave snacks…take today, for example, while I was designing cards. I used Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple, Tangerine Tango, and Razzleberry. Now all I can think of is a yummy poundcake studded with raspberries and blueberries, with a little orange extract. Doesn’t that sound good?
Anyway, here are the cards. I kept them simple, because I needed several for different reasons, so the sentiment on each is interchangeable.
Stampin’ Up Supplies: Sunflower and Sweet Essentials stamp sets; Raspberry Ripple ink
Crumb Cake and Raspberry Ripple cardstock; Floral District DSP (for small flowers)
Scallop Border and Itty Bitty Shapes punches; Some rhinestones from the craft store (ack!)
All Stampin’ Up! supplies: Pursuit of Happiness stamp set
Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, and Tangerine Tango cardstock
Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade markers; 1”, Scallop Circle, and 1-3/8” Square punches
Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon
I’m torn about my feelings for these cards with medallion/ribbon type things on them, so I’ve resisted creating one. But they’re everywhere, man! So I tried, and I was pleasantly surprised that this one turned out pretty well.
All Stampin’ Up supplies: Perfectly Penned stamp set
Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango cardstock and Floral District DSP
Brights Collection Buttons; Island Indigo Bakers’ Twine; 1” Square Punch
This was a sketch challenge I saw on Pinterest and remembered as I started designing. To make the pennants, you just slide the end of your rectangular paper diagonally into a square punch and snip off the ends. Nifty, eh?
So there you have it…a little creative surge I forced myself to have today so that I could get cards in the mail…and now I’m off to do just that! And maybe pick up the ingredients for a raspberry-blueberry-orange poundcake.
