Stamping Cravings

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.

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.
