Here is a card I CASED from Mary Fish This is a card designed by Stampin'Up! that the demonstrators made at a Stampin'Up! Founder's Circle meeting. It shows off both the new Create a Cupcake stamp set and the matching Build a Cupcake punch beautifully!
These two new items are available in the current Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. You can see them on page 12 of the mini catalogue. If you would like to order these items please email me and I will arrange an order for you.
There is so much you can do with this set and punch. It is terrific for male and female card creating plus those of you who love punches will find plenty of new uses for the punch for punch art creations!
Thanks for stopping by!

These stamped images look so clean and simple just matting them and mounting them onto Confetti White or Confetti Vanilla cardstock. Love how the diamente looks on the cat's collar!!!
Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter break.

Don't you love it when you finally get around to trying out a new technique! You've seen it online and you keep thinking I really must try that out. Well I'd been thinking just that about this technique - you might also see it called Faux Designer Series Paper or as Faux Material. However I left it so long that I was worried that I'd not be able to show off my creations because the technique uses the Square Lattice Embossing folder from the Summer Mini, but yay, Stampin'Up! has kept this folder on as one of several items from the Summer Mini that you can continue to order!
This technique has the potential to create so many new ideas that I wish I had more hours in the day to play with it. For the technique you need an embossing folder with a close pattern - hence why the Square Lattice design is so perfect! On your base card either stamp an image and colour in or as I have done in my samples here, adhere punched or die cut shapes. Once it is all dry place your card piece inside the embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot and hey presto look at what you have created!
My card above uses the Big Shot Sizzlits Birds & Blooms dies and the one below uses Sizzlits Little Leaves along with Embosslits die Beautiful Wings. Please excuse the obviously crooked ribbon placement on that card. A late night card making session obviously had me not seeing straight!!!! I didn't notice it until I loaded the photo on here!
Go on and give this great technique a try - you will be very pleased with the results!

I CASED the idea for this card from one of my downline - Lorinda de Regt-Penn. She had a card very similar to this on her display poster at Paperific and I just had to recreate it for myself!
Cardstock is Basic Grey, Whisper White and Basic Black Textured
Ink is Staz-On Black
Stamps are Motorcycle 123571 and Perfect Punches 121560
Accessories used Basic Black Striped Grosgrain, Cutter Tool for distressing around stamped image and Extra Large Oval punch.
I know what I meant to do and that was add Crystal Effects to the tyres! Will have to remember to do that next time!

Here is a card I have created using this lovely set of stamps. I have used the Rockn'Roll technique on the butterfly and stamped it twice, cutting out the second image to overlay it over the top of the original image and catching it only by the body with a Dimensional so as the wings can be folded up.
Inks used were Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose.
Cardstock is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.
Ribbon is Early Espresso 1cm taffetta
To order this set please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and quote Strength & Hope 123663 for woodmount $35.95 or 124232 for clearmount $28.95. Postage and handling is an additional cost.
Please think about assisting this cause as I am sure many of us have been touched in some way by this insidious disease.

I've used the stamp set Growing Green and randomly stamped the images in Staz-On black ink onto Whisper White card. I roughed up the edges of the white card with the distressing tool in the cutter kit.This was then mounted onto a strip of metallic silver card after basic black one eighth inch taffeta had been caught behind the white card. A bow in the same ribbon was attached separately. The card was then adhered to a folded basic black card and the sentiment stamped in white craft ink from the hostess set Silhouette Sentiments.
Very quick, easy and elegant I think!
