I did manage to make a couple of cards, same design different colors. Yes, I suppose that's my thing - find a design I like and wear it out! I just adore this little cupcake stamp, though, and it looked so yummy with the chocolate icing I couldn't help but make another!
The stamp is from Great Impressions and I used my new Swiss Dot CB embossing folder - I love that thing! I colored the image with Copic markers and added Stardust Stickles for the sprinkles on the icing and a little to the candle, too. The little flowers are from Hero Arts, the paper is American Crafts.
Now for some enabling. I can't take all of the credit, thought, because I saw these buckets of flowers on Lauren's blog and again on Misti's blog - who can resist after seeing them twice??? Obviously not me. There are a whole bunch of flowers in these cans for $4.99 AND I used the 40% (Michaels) online coupon, so I did good. They were on an end cap in the bridal department. I was all prepared for an argument with the cashier but she took the coupon without a problem - I was amazed.
While I was there I also found these goodies, too
The gems are in the jewelry department with the rhinestones and I apologize for being such a dork and not taking a photo of them in their original packaging. They are not self adhesive but could be attached with either glue dots or Glossy Accents, and probably even with the Quickie Glue Pen. This is only a portion of what was in the bag, there are bunches and in shapes that I have not seen in the self adhesive ones. The flowers were on clearance for $1.00 and again, this is only a portion of the package contents. They are silk and are made by Darice - aren't they just gorgeous? They have other colors as well but they weren't on sale - yet.
I found these at AC Moore in the bridal section - 180 pieces in a box for $5.99, what a deal!! They are silk, too, and you would pay way more than that for that many Primas, that's for sure!
So there you have it - my contribution to your addiction. No thanks necessary, I'm always glad to be of service :-). I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
