Eclipse Cupcake Birthday Card

Athough this card has lots of stamping and uses lots of ink pads, it really did come together pretty quickly.  I just love the end result.  It's so bright and cheery, and the eclipse technique makes it even more special.

Eastern Palace Thank You Card

Although the Eastern Palace Suite has been out for a while, and I thought I had seen and made every possible card with it, I came up with another one!

This card came together pretty easily.  Here are the steps (the products are listed below the directions):

1.  Cut card base (I used Very Vanilla) 5 x 6.  Score at 3 1/2.  Turned horizontally, the card will look like the picture above.
2.  Cut DSP 5 x 2 1/4.  I used the Eastern Palace DSP.

4.  Stamp "thank you" in the bottom left corner.  I used Fresh Fig.
5.  On a piece of scrap Very Vanilla, stamp the floral image.  I used Fresh Fig.
6.  Stamp the dot image from the stamp set inside each of the petals.  I used Tranquil Tide.
7.  Die cut the flower out with the coordinating die.

8.  Attach the DSP to the front of the card with a small border along the top and bottom of the card front.
9.  Attach the strip of cardstock as shown.
10.  Attach the flower as shown.
11.  Add a Rhinestone Jewel in  the center of the card.

Done!  Isn't it beautiful???

I'm happy to answer any questions you have!

Marbled Background Thank You Note Card

I'm having lots of fun using the Marbled background stamp set.  I just used it for these customer thank you notes.  This was so easy to make in multiples because it's the perfect card to do assembly style.

To save some time, I started used the notecard and envelopes that are sold in a package of 20 each of the notecards and envelopes.  If starting from scratch, the notecard is cut at 5 x 7, scored at 3 1/2.

To make the card:
- Card Base:  Thick Whisper White note card OR thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 5 x 7, scored at 3 1/2.
- Card Front:  Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 3/4 x 3 1/4

- Ink up the Marbled background stamp set using Fresh Fig and stamp the card front (3 1/4 x 5 3/4 Whisper White)
- Cut a piece of Fresh Fig Finely Woven ribbon approximately  5 1/4 inches.  Attach it to the card front by wrapping it over the edge of each side (as shown above)
- On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the "Thank You" in Fresh Fig using the Rose Wonder stamp set.  Stamp the border around it, also in Fresh Fig, using the label image from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
- Die cut the sentiment using the Rose Wonder Thinlits.
- Attach the die cut sentiment to the card front using Sta
