Welcome to the next stop on the Stampin Addicts New Catalog MEGA Blog Hop!  I am so glad you are here!  You have just come from Barbara’s blog weren’t her projects great?

My stamp set is For Everything it is a fantastic new set from the new catalog.

This first project was fun to make.  I got the idea from the Stampin’ Up demonstrator magazine that comes out each month.  These are great hostess gifts for the spring and summer or could be used as decoration/snacks  for a fun summer party!

Ink: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Pear Pizzaz and Whisper White
Other: Circle Punch

I saw this next idea on a fellow stampin’ addicts site during a recent blog hop, and I loved it, so with his permission I have taken my own creative license and found a fantastic template for this One Sheet Wonder Technique.  One Sheet Wonder’s only use one sheet of Designer Series Paper and you can make sixteen cards with it!

Stamps: For Everything Clear Mount Stamp Set
Ink: Old Olive, Rose Red, and Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Sweet & Sour Designer Series Paper

This card is very versatile and fun, it has lots of bright colors and cute images!  It was a challenge to combine these colors but I love a good challenge and I love the results I got EVEN more!

Stamps: For Everything Clear Mount
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, and Sweet & Sour Designer Series Paper

Birthday fun!

So on the 28th of the month I have been posting birthday cards, and well this month is no different! I love this card, it has my favorite colors and it just so bright and fun!  I have had this card for a while and still havent given it to anyone because I just dont want to part with it!

B is for Boy and Birthday

Boy cards and cakes can be some of the hardest to make, especially if there is no theme, if there is a theme it makes it easy but if there isnt well it can be quite the creative challenge.  I challenged myself one night when I was make a boy cards so I came up with a one that I think accomplished the “boy card challenge”.

Bit by the cake bug!

So this is it, this is the first decorated cake I ever made!  I made it for our first nephews baby shower.  We didnt know if it was a boy or a girl and the only requirement I had was for it to be chocolate!  So the little light bulb went off in my head and there it was I was pretty impressed with myself but I am a little bias!

If you cant tell already I LOVE CAKE!  One of the things I love most about cake you can make it into anything.  Last month I showed you a purse, a few months ago I showed you a dump truck, and today a mask.  To me it is so cool how with a few cuts of a cake, some icing and decorations and you can make it into whatever you want !

A simple thanks!

Today I want to show you another simple card that is easy and only took a few minutes to put together.  I used a houndstooth background stamp and then I used a stamp from the circle circus stamp set, cut a piece of ribbon and used my favorite thank you stamp and then It was all done and a really pretty card was the result!

I hope you enjoyed this months simple card post!

27

Posted in Uncategorized by frostedandstamped on July 3, 2010

Today my sweet boyfriend turns 27, yes he is old, not really but to think he was 22 (two years younger than I am now) when we met 27 sounds old!  He is an amazing amazing person, words seriously cannot describe how kind and loving he really is.  He is always thinking of others and what he can do for someone else, that is one of my favorite qualities about him.  He has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met and is determined to make a difference in the lives of the people he is around.  He is also one of the funniest people I know, there are days that he walks in the room and says “Hi Emmer” and i will just crack up laughing because of the way he says it.  Yes if you cant tell I am head over heels in love with my boy!  I have included a few pictures of him and us that are my favorite, and to keep in tradition of this being my cake and card blog I will also include is birthday cake from a couple years ago.  He wanted either a dinosaur or a lego cake for his 25th birthday (yes 25th not 5th lol).

Tie Dyed!

So I have no idea if this is a technique or not, but it sure turned out cute!  I inked up my favorite Medallion stamp with Elegant Eggplant then I took Taken with Teal and swiped it all over the stamp and this was the result!
