Saying Good-bye Crazy for Cupcakes

My niece had her first birthday this past week and we celebrated with her on Saturday. I made this simple birthday card for her. It features my favorite birthday stamp set, "Crazy for Cupcakes," which will be retiring on May 31. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds on the mini cupcakes to give it some sass!

Happy 1st Birthday Miss Alyx!

Saying Good-bye Medallion

The Medallion stamp set has been one of my favorite large, background stamps since it was introduced a few years back. I have used it on a lot of projects: cards, calendars, coasters. It's just an elegant stamp and has been a popular "go-to" stamp for me.

This was an easy card to create and got me out of my comfort zone and got me to use my embossing powder and heat tool, which I haven't used in a very long time. I simply stamped the image with VersaMark onto white card stock, then poured clear embossing powder over it and heat embossed the image. Grabbed a sponge and added some color around the image and viola! A finished card with just a touch of ribbon. Easy peasy! :)

We're saying good-bye to the Medallion on May 31, so be sure and get yours today! This card also features the Concord Crush In-Color which is retiring May 31 as well. If this is your favorite color to create projects with, hop on over and stock up on card stock, ink, and ribbon!
