Mini Cupcake

I love how this little cupcake turned out and I'm rating it as one of my top favorite projects. :) I made it with the Stampin' Up! big bold cupcakes, 4-pack dies and just a small 2 x 3 1/2 inch piece of matching cardstock. It's a keeper... :)

Class Projects

These are the projects we made in my last stamp class. We did a card, cupcake container and a pouch that has pixie sticks inside.  I always enjoy the time I spend with my stamping buddies during these classes!

Springtime Tulip

How versatile is the owl punch?  Well... I used it to make this tulip.  I also used the large oval punch as the center and the 1 3/4 circle punch for the leaves.  I wish I could take all the credit, but I saw something similar to it and ran with the idea.  That's the great thing about everyone sharing their ideas... they give you a great starting point, then you can add your own personal touch.  I'm grateful for all those who share and I hope my ideas are starting points for others. :)

Bunny Bitty Box

This little treat is made with the bitty box die.  It's simply turned up on it's edge with a piece of paper slipped down into the sides for the handle.

Egg-ceptional Easter Egg

About a week ago, in one of my pieces of mail, I received a small egg shaped template that conveniently became the pattern for my next project. :)   I traced the pattern onto white paper, cut it, then embossed it with the elegant bouquet embossing folder. I sandwiched the Bigz box #2 between two of the egg shapes and put a couple of small hershey candy bars inside.  The only complaint I have, it's very hard to photograph anything embossed on white paper.  That's the reason for the dark photo.  It's actually a very sweet, WHITE box. :)

Easter Nuggets

It doesn't matter how many times I see the mini Hershey candy bars covered I still love them.  They are the quickest and most versatile treat for any holiday.  With the array of papers the possibilities are endless.

Square Easter Blossoms Card

It's been a while since I've posted a card.  I prefer 3D projects. :) This is one of those stamp sets I just had to have and I've tried using it several times but haven't been happy with the results.  I do however like this card.  Sometimes the stamps I love don't love me back. :)

Two Tags Carrot

Would you have guessed?  This little carrot is made with the two tags bigz die cut.  I also used both sizes of the scallop circle punches for the top.  It's just the perfect size for holding a handful of jelly beans, so it would make a fun little treat to tuck inside an Easter basket.

Daffodil Treat

This daffodil was inspired by one of my sweetest friends.  She asked me to come up with more ideas using the Island Floral die cut.  She also showed me a daffodil card she really liked.  I got started on the daffodil not really knowing what I would make with it and next thing you know this is what I had.  It has a reeses peanut butter cup under the center flower because the tag does say, "a little treat."  If I had more time I'd love to make a complete arrangement.
