   The Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, has so many beautiful designs and creative possibilities. One side is this Petal Pink color the other side is white and can be  colored with any color of ink that you’d like.

It’s hard to see the leaf texture on the Glimmer paper, in person it is much more noticeable. The leaves were made from the Wonderful Framelits Dies. The third picture down has a little bit better view of the texture.

   I can never resist a beautiful tea cup stamp. My maternal Grandmother could never resist a beautiful tea cup! Her name was Grace, and was the very definition of that name. She had so many beautiful and delicate teacups. When I see a tea cup, I always think of her.

    Oh how I love swirls, curls and flourishes!! They just make me happy…they can range from being majestically elegant to playfully whimsical on anything they adorn!

    The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies are simply the best card making and scrapbooking tool ever!! There is so much you can do with them!! I’m really happy how this card turned out, the stitched frame, and the monochromatic and very cheerful Daffodil Delight is perfect for the Spring! Again…no matter what the color, that Gingham is just so adorable…can’t get enough of it!


You could do this card in any of the Gingham color.

One last cupcake card before they retire…these are going to be one of the options for my April CB, so if you wanna make one be sure and rsvp here in the reply box.

To make the angled piece I cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ template of thick card stock, I measured 1″ down both long sides to get the shape you see here. With the template, I could mark the DSP and cut it.

It’s hard to decide which cupcake card I like the best, this one or the Highland Heather Gingham from Monday’s post. You Card Buffet attendees will recognize this card since it was one of the options at this months CB.

I think this might be the first time I used the Petal Pink for a card base. I love it!!

I sure hope you got these thinlit dies if you wanted them…they sold like hotcakes!! One of the advantages of being a demo, or if you prefer the term “active hobbyist” is that we get to pre-order products. I always get my “must haves” during pre-order if possible, just in case they sell out quickly.  With the timing of catalogs and such, SU! can’t always get another shipment.
