The Old and The New!


How is everyone doing? I've found some time to stamp this week, but haven't had much time to post. First off, let's do some "new"!!

Our oldest is at a b-day slumber party tonight - for twins! One likes pink; one likes blue, that pretty much sums up these cards. LOL

I found these cards AGES ago at Target in the $1 spot. I never seem to have just the right colors to match; but I made them work. I pretty much stuck with the polka dot theme in the cupcakes, the layering, glitter dots, etc.

I used my Copic markers to color the cupcakes on both cards; this one I topped with dazzling diamonds all over. And aren't those green glitter dots adorable? They come in lots of different colors from Gina K Designs - check them out. I used SU's word window punch for the two embellishments at the top. All pretty simple.

Here's a close-up of the cupcake with dazzling diamonds...what's up with that pink-ish shade on my picture? Sorry about that.

The next is basically identical except for the colors...now really, doesn't that pink frosting look dee-lish??? Mmmm, Mmmm good! For this cupcake, I used the Spica glitter pens for the frosting and the polka dots.

The cupcakes are from the Hey There Cupcake set from Stampendous. I love the set; there are so many cupcakes, toppings, sentiments, candles, etc. to choose from.

For this card, I used dew drops from Ellen Hutson's store as the embellishments.

Our oldest was pleased with the cards - therefore I have succeeded. I thought about adding some shading and some sponging...but when you know the card is going to be ripped open and thrown away...I just couldn't put the extra 'umph' into it. Is that bad??

Okay, back we go to the old. Remember THIS post? Well, remember how I thought about adding something to the pink 'empty spot' to the left of the bunny? Well, I added some of those dew drops - go look at the old post and then look at this one; do you like it better with the dew drops? I do; just like the touch it gives the card.

OK, that's it for now; I have a rotten headache from crying too much today. :( Each day will be better though!

Thanks for stopping by; I'll have some more creations posted this weekend. And for those of you that stamp; check out THIS post by Melanie - come on, join the card shower, it's going to be such fun!
