Cupcake Slider Card

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend and that you got a little stamping time.
I had lots of stamping time because Hubby was perfectly happy watching the football playoffs with wifey not in the room!

I have a fun cupcake slider card to share with you today!

The card started with a die cut Pocket with Window & Tag from Creative Cuts & More.  You can choose what color you want each of the pieces to be cut from.  Die Cuts make it so easy to make a fun slider card that will look like it took hours to make.

I created a panel from white card stock and adhered it to the back of the pocket.

Then I taped the window pocket together with Tear-able Tacky Tape.

Then I stamped the two white panels, colored them, and added the pocket to the front of my card.

Here's the inside.

Here's what you need to make this card:
Hey Cupcake by The Rubber Cafe
Bazzill card stock
Pugnacious white paper
The Paper Studio patterned paper
Pocket with Window & Tag from Creative Cuts & More
Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink by Tsukineko
Copic Markers
Dots & Dashes Ribbon

Have a terrific week!!!

For That Special Friend…

Jan13 blk

Today I’m sharing this Square Window Square Box from Creative Cuts and More. Jan13 box

This is a 3 pc set, top, bottom, and acetate window. It comes pre-cut and scored, ready to decorate, fill and make someone happy!

Jan13 open


Before taping together with Killer Tear-able Tape, I embossed the top with a pretty embossing folder. I added some flowers and some punched foliage. The sentiment and doily ‘frame’ are from Our Daily Bread designs that I cut by hand.

Be sure to check out Creative Cuts and More for those special gift giving needs… while you’re there, peek into the other categories too. Just be sure to have some time because you might just be a while! *wink*

Snowman Shaker Card

Hello All!

I have a fun little Snowman Shaker card to share with you today.
I made it with a Shaker Box with Acetate Square die cut from Creative Cuts & More and stamps by The Rubber Cafe and OCL.

When you order the die cut you have your choice of tons of different colors and type of paper.
I chose Splash Blue Bazzill Canvas Textured Cardstock.
This is what it looks like when it arrives.

It's really easy to fold on the scored lines and put together with Killer Red or White Tacky Tape.

Before closing it all the way up you simply slide your stamped image panel into the shaker box and add beads, confetti, glitter....whatever you want and the close it up.

So fun and easy and sure to impress the recipient!
