I made this card stock "cake" for my launch party that I held lately. Anyone who booked their own party could choose a "slice" and inside was a voucher which they could redeem at their party. I used Very Vanilla card stock, Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and some flower trim. The design of the cake was from a video posted by Sam Donald, a demonstrator in the UK.

I decorated some battery-operated tea lights and placed them on the tables at my husband's 40th birthday party.
I used Indigo Baby and Pool Party card stock with some Pool Party DSP around the sides. I used three different punches: 1-1/4" Scallop Circle, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle and the small one on top is from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I also put the small Pearl Basic Jewels on the small circles at the top of each candle. I made about 20 of these.

The Wildflower Meadow stamp and matching Embossing folder (look closely - you'll notice that the image is raised) make it so easy to make a quick card. I made this one for my husband who recently turned 40. I thought it was appropriate for a male and he seemed to like it. The greeting is from Label Love and was punched out using the coordinating Artisan Label Punch.
The colours used are Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar and Whisper White.

I made this card for my niece's First Holy Communion. I love this set and I've used it in similar ways before. In the past, I've used it in blues and pinks, but never in yellows, but I love this combination of So Saffron and Daffodil Delight. I highlighted the darker part of the flower by going over it lightly with my Two Way Glue Pen and sprinkling Iridescent Ice over the top. The Stamp-a-ma-jig is almost essential when using the Stippled Blossoms stamp set, but the results are worth the extra effort.
