Bikini Cards!

Aren't these fun!? It's just a standard card with a strip of paper on the bottom (about 2 inches) then punched 5 times with the 1 3/8" circle punch. The flower is the 5 petal Flower punch and then I punched 5 word window punches to make the bra straps! Easy! You can use Stampin' Dimensionals for the flowers to give a little dimension. The star is a bit of confetti I found for a belly button ring... Not that I have one of these or that you'll ever catch me in a bikini! Hee hee! Happy punching!

Circle Circus

This card was a quickie made at my friend's home. She has a Cuttlebug and can use the texture plates which are sooooo much fun! I definitely want a Big Shot and all the fun stuff that comes with it now! Talk about easy and fast! Anyways! This used some old scraps of paper and I'm not sure on the colors but I'd guess they are More Mustard, Barely Banana and Close to Cocoa with Whisper White. The punch is the Scallop punch with a 1 3/4" circle punch layered on it. I stamped the circle image from the Circle Circus set in More Mustard and then tied a little spare ribbon (not SU!). Cute? I think so! I love yellow! Especially brown!

I'm Back!!

I'm back and busier than ever... but I'm going to try to be better at posting regularly all my fun creations! This card and gift bag were for my daughter's best friend's birthday. They turned out soooooo cute and I had a hard time giving them up! The paper is all Stampin' Up: Only Orange, Melon Mambo, Yo Yo Yellow and Whisper White. I used packing tape behind the punched heart images and then dumped on the Fine Supernova pink glitter. The punch is the Heart to Heart punch. The Eyelet border punch, 1 1/4" & 1 3/4" circle punches and the Word Window punch too! I LOVE the colors together... Just happy and fun! The cupcake is from The More the Merrier hostess set and the greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I also used a bit of pink gingham ribbon for accent!

I used my Cricket Expression to cut the cupcake - from the Doodlecharms cartridge. The hearts are also either from the Cricket or the various Stampin' Up! heart punches. The white bag was from my stash and the tissue paper too! Lots of fun!!
