Look what I made!

Hey stampers! Look what I made with only HALF of a simply scrappin kit from Stampin Up!! I recently purchased the "I Wish" kit (#112193, $19.95) and made 20 cards, card box, and several tags the past couple of days. The cards are pretty simple but I think they are very cute. I also had a bunch of leftovers to make more cards or a couple of pages if I wish. I used about 9 sheets of cardsstock that I had on hand, put my punches to good use and did very little stamping. I also used up a bunch of scrap ribbon that I had in a jar. Never, I say NEVER, throw any scraps away - you never know when they may come in handy!! I used just a few stamp sets - punch pals, best yet and holidays & wishes.

I am so excited about this scrappin kit - if you order one before the 15th, I will give you 1 yard of real red and old olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon!! Here is what is included in each kit:

2 sheets of choc chip textured card stock (12 x 12)
2 sheets of old olive textured card stock (12 x 12)
2 sheets of real red textured card stock (12 x 12)
2 sheets of whisper white textured card stock (12 x 12)
6 sheets of exclusive double sided designer paper
6 sheets of exclusive, self adhesive die cuts

Card of the Day

Hello Stampers! I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! We tried to go out of town for the weekend but the first night our youngest one got sick and we had to come home in the middle of the night. I'm pretty used to it, he's always sick! We had a busy day at work today, making up for that day off, it almost wasn't worth being off a day! Even though I was tired, I stamped a card tonight. I didn't have any inspiration of my own so I blog-hopped a little and found this card that I like very much! I really love this "Crazy for Cupcakes" set from Stampin Up! Enjoy!

The details:
Stamps: crazy for cupcakes
CS: washington apple DSP, riding hood red, so saffron, w white, pumpkin pie
Ink: black stazon, pumpkin pie, bashful blue, riding hood red, so saffron
Other: 3/4" & 1" circle punches, stampin dimensionals, cuttlebug EF, blender pens
