Cupcakes & Carousel Suite Congrats

I just love the Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack!  The colors & designs are just gorgeous!!  And I really like working with the size of the paper stacks (6 X 6).  The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring this Suite today!

I needed another Congrats Card for a new team member (yea!!) and used Cupcakes & Carousel DSP Stack and the matching stamp set, Carousel Birthday.  And just to tie it all together, I added some items from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit!

I had to make a special card for this occasion, so I made this fun fold card.  I think it’s called an “Explosion Card”.

This card is very simple to make!  I’ll try to explain here:

Start with a 6 X 6 sheet of Designer Series Paper.  Score at 3″.  Turn & score at 3″.

Score diagonally down 1 side.  Fold as shown in photos.  Glue onto card base as shown.

      

Clear as mud?!!  Hope you understand it!  I plan to have a “Fun Folds Card Class” in March, so stay tuned…

Don’t stop here!  Be sure & check out the creative ideas from the rest of the SSINK Team!

Favorite Embellishments!

I was so excited when I saw the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!  I ordered it right away, but wasn’t sure what to do with it!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration team is featuring Friday Favorites:  Occasions Accessories!  I pulled out my Embellishment Kit & this is what I came up with:

I just love it!!  The tassels!!  The little bows!!

Here’s the ingredients:

  • Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies
  • Craft Paper
  • Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack
  • Carousel Birthday Stamp Set
  • Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
  • Calypso Coral Marker
  • Sprinkles Embellishments

Don’t forget…it’s Sale-A-Bration Time!!  Woohoo!  Get something FREE with every $50 you spend!

The Baker’s Box is the perfect size for a stack of cookies or a cupcake or handful of chocolate (my favorite!)

I just love this sentiment & think I’ll use it a lot!  It’s meant to be used on the inside of a card, I think, because it actually starts with the word “because”.  First I inked up my stamp & tried to erase it using a blender pen.  I still saw a shadow when I stamped it, so I had better luck just inking the stamp using my marker.

Hope you are inspired to get some of those Embellishments!  They’re so much fun to work with!

Be sure and check out what the other gals on the SSINK Design Team have created!  You’re sure to get some great ideas!!
