Peachy Sweet

I have another swap to share with you, and they may have made it to the recipients by now :) I mailed them on Monday and they went from coast to coast :) I had fun using some of my favorite new things from this Annual catalog!

I am actually taking a staycation this week as I had use-or-lose vacation time that I had to use this week, so maybe I can get a bunch of stamping done! I mean, I have a ton of stuff from the new catalog that has not even seen ink yet! I would love to get enough stuff stamped to feed the ever hungry blog-monster for the next few weeks :) I do love having a blog, it gives me a place to share my projects, and hopefully gives my viewers some tips, tricks, and inspiration that you all can use to improve your crafting lives.

And in my quest to do more videos, here is one for this card!

Monochromatic cards are not something I do very often. I like a variety of color, but this one seems to have a good balance of color to white and metallics. And the layers and texture help :)

I don't think I need to go into all the details of how I created this card since there is a video, but please let me know below in the comments if the written directions are something you miss. 

Here you can see the dimension on the top of the cupcake a little better.

And I don't think I will ever get tired of the vellum sentiment strips! By doing the heat embossed sentiment on a strip of vellum, I avoid warping the card base. If I was stamping and heat embossing on a watercolor card base, I wouldn't worry about it, but regular cardstock does tend to warp from the heat. I get picky about that kind of thing :)

If you have seen something you need for your crafting life, just click the image in the supply list below and it will take you to my store! If you order less than $150, please use this month's Host Code, which can be found at the top of the sidebar on the right.

And be sure to check the box allowing me to contact you when you check out. I can't send you a thank you card if I don't know your address! And I promise to only send you happy mail, no junk mail :)
