Wondering where I have been??? Deep in the pages of the new (SU) Stampin' Up! catalog of course! I received my copy early because I am a demonstrator. Awwww, the perks of being a demonstrator! ;-) I was thrilled to see that "Season Of Friendship" from the Holiday Mini catalog was included in the upcoming 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog! I have seen this set used in so many ways. It's extremely versatile.
I had a card class with an *AWESOME & FUN* group of friends this past weekend and one of the ladies just had a birthday. She is a dog person and *LOVES* Penny Black images. Who am I kidding....I love Penny Black images too! I wanted to make a unique birthday card for her with Penny Black puppies and this is what I came up with. A Cupcake Tree! Isn't it the cutest!! The tiny cupcakes are from the "Short & Sweet" stamp set. The larger cupcake image is from the "Cupcake" wheel previously used on this card here. CUPCAKE WHEEL CARD Used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the leaves and cupcakes perfectly. The pups are Penny Black on watercolor paper. Cut out the pups, cupcakes and add pop-dots for dimension. SU Exclusive Top Note die cut to frame the Cupcake Tree scene and hand drew the blades of grass with SU markers.
