It's been a long time since I have done a challenge of any kind. I love the sketches on Mojo Monday and check them out every week . I finally sat down to try this weeks sketch and ended up making four. A little over kill I know but I am going to need some birthday cards soon so I’m stocked up for now. I’ve also have some scrap pages that I plan to post next week. I love the Medallion BG stamp!! It is so versatile and I have visions of some winter cards using it maybe in blue. Have to see what I come up with. I used new in color cardstock and razzleberry lemonade designer paper on all the cards. On the cupcake card I went with a square image instead of a circle. I put glossy accents on the cupcakes and heated it with a heating gun. It bubbles and puffs up to look like icing. I took a close up so you might be able to see it better.
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!
Supplies I used:
Stamps: Medallion BG, Live Your Dreams, Crazy for Cupcakes, For a Friend
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DP
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
SU Ribbon and Buttons, Buttons from Wal-Mart,
Punches: Oval, scallop edge, photo corner, MS butterfly, mega circle, giga scallop circle

Good Morning !! Here are two more cards I made this week. The first card I made using the Extreme Happiness set for CTMH. I used it the other day in a layout with pictures from our vacation. I second generation rock and rolled the flower using tempting turquoise. What this means is you ink your image then stamp it lightly on a scrap paper then roll the edges in the same ink. This set has different stamps for each part of the Hibiscus flower so I used same ink for center and summer sun for the middle thingy. Because they are acrylic stamps it was very easy to stamp each layer. The second card I’ve done before this one is just in different colors. Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
Supplies I used.
Sets: Extreme Happiness, Weather BG

Dew Drops, Twine

I love this new Designer Paper from SU!! It is definitely my favorite set of paper in the new catty. The colors are so vibrant!! I made two cards using new in colors and Razzleberry Lemonade DP. I used sets I already have cause new sets are just not in the budget right now. My oldest daughter is a senior now and I’m saving for her pre-college classes and senior cuts. Wow having a senior is expensive!!! I’m looking forward to this year and I’m excited for her. I used the SU Sizzix butterfly die on the 5x5 butterfly card. I was inspired by a card on Laurie’s Blog. Here is the post Pacific Butterfly Box and Cards that inspired me.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Razzleberry Lemonade DS, Whisper White
