Fall Themed Thank You Cards

I made this card a couple weeks ago, I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I actually made two of the same card since I had to send two thank you notes. Of course I used mostly Stampin’ Up! products on the cards. For the cardstock I used Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla (MM, CC and AA are part of the SU! Regals Collection). Other SU! stuff I used were the linen thread, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, Fabulous Phrases stamp set and pearls. I also used the Polka Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, Peeled Paint and Rock Candy Distress Stickles, and a Fiskars edge punch. The leaves were cut out of the A Child’s Year Cricut cartridge.

Yes, I Still Craft!

Hello, everyone! Ugh, I hate how I’m ignoring this blog the past few months. I promise I’ll try to do better! I am still crafting and thought I’d share a few cards I recently made.

This card I made to accompany the gift I purchased for my December 2011 mom’s onesie exchange. I used my 9 Months Cricut cartridge for the pregnant lady and I welded the words together using my Gypsy and the Gypsy Font cartridge. All the paper used was Stampin’ Up! in the colors Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake (the lady’s skin was just some cardstock I had in my stash). To complete the card I Cuttlebugged the lady’s dress, added a SU! button to her hair and placed some SU! pearls in three of the corners.


Here’s a thank you card I made. This one didn’t turn out as nice as I would have liked. Looking back I wish I would have stamped the butterflies on a separate piece of cardstock and then fussy cut them out and glued them to the circle. Oh well… live and learn! For the background layer I used some Pear Pizzaz Stampin’ Up! cardstock and scored it in my Martha Stewart scoreboard. I then took some So Saffron and used my SU! scallop edge border punch and then added some Bashful Blue ribbon and used a random “thank you” stamp I had in my stash.  Next I took a couple punches and punched out a circle of Very Vanilla and a scalloped circle of Bashful Blue. The flowers and butterflies are from the Sweet Summer SU! stamp set. To complete the card I added some SU! bling.

Probably my favorite of the three cards! I used my Bloom Cricut Lite cartridge for the flowers (such a great cartridge!). Stampin’ Up! cardstock colors I used include Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi. I used my SU! scallop border edge punch and some Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon and my Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder. The “thanks” stamp is from the SU! Fabulous Phrases set and to complete the card I added a few stick-on pearls.

Thank you all for looking, and I hope to blog a bit more around these parts! If you haven’t checked out my other blog, you can see it here, I update over there a lot more.

Gender Reveal Cake

We recently found out the sex of our baby. I didn’t just want to call my dad to tell him what his first grandchild will be, of course I wanted to do something more creative! Well, semi-creative. I decided to do a gender reveal cake, which is a trend right now. I bought a Betty Crocker white cake mix and added 1 1/4 cups water, 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce, 3 egg whites and 10 drops of food coloring(pink or blue to signify the sex!). After I baked the cakes (two 9” rounds) I frosted them with chocolate frosting. I made sure I covered the whole thing really well as to not ruin the surprise! For being relatively healthy, the cake tastes pretty darn yummy! I always use applesauce instead of oil when baking cakes but had never used just egg whites.

On top of the cake I cut out some letters with my Cricut to spell out “ITS A.” Yes, I know the “its” should have an apostrophe, so don’t judge :). I used the Birthday Cakes Cricut cartridge for the letters, I think I cut them out at 2”. The paper is Pear Pizzaz from Stampin’ Up!

Here is a picture of the cake.

Curious as to what color I dyed the inside? Here’s a picture right after my dad cut out the first piece!


Yep, we’re having a boy! There was no denying it at our ultrasound the other day, he was showing off the goods for everyone to see! Baby boy was also measuring three days ahead of schedule, so that would put his due date at November 30 instead of December 3.

I just can’t wait to meet our baby boy!

Belly Shot Pages

Here are two more pages in my pregnancy scrapbook. They’re similar to the two other belly shot pages I previously created. If I go the full 40 weeks I’ll have enough spaces to include a photo every week (I plan on using the front and back of six of the tags). If I don’t go the full 40 weeks I’ll probably include some postpartum photos. And if I go over 40 weeks? Well, I can’t imagine that I’ll really be wanting my picture taken at that point… but if I do, I can always make another tag.

Per usual, all the cardstock I used was Stampin’ Up! in colors Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I also used Crumb Cake ink on all the elements for a distressed look. Take a look!

Supplies:
-SU! Crocheted flowers
-SU! buttons in So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink (Subtles collection)
-SU! Pretty in Pink ribbon
-SU! Linen Thread
-Green embroidery floss
-Flower border Sizzix die
-Pink and Yellow Stickles
-Making Memories Epoxy Clip
-Skin toned cardstock (just from my stash, not sure of the brand)
-Argyle Sizzix embossing folder
-Spots and Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder
-Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug embossing folder
-9 Months Cricut cartridge (pregnant lady)

Supplies:
-SU! Pretty in Pink ribbon

I have maybe three or four pages left in this album, and then I plan on doing a “Year You Were Born” album with pages like popular TV shows, popular movies, top news stories, top baby names, etc. Can you guys believe I’m 20 weeks already? That’s exactly the half way mark of my pregnancy! If you’re interested in seeing what’s going on with my pregnancy, check out my other blog, The Accidental Wallflower.

Stampin’ Up! Haul

Good morning crafty friends! Can you believe I actually filmed a crafty video last night? I know, I can hardly believe it myself! It’s just a little haul I received from Stampin’ Up! yesterday. I really do love all of the SU! products! The cardstock is seriously some of the highest quality in the industry, so you know it will hold up well in your scrapbooks and mini albums! Plus, it cuts really nicely in my Cricut.

This order was pretty small, I just needed to pick up a few things that I forgot to get in my big order in June. Towards the end of the video I explain how you can order SU! cardstock; either in multi-packs or by color.

You can click here to shop my Stampin’ Up! store, I would really appreciate it if you did! While you’re on the site, I highly suggest you check out the clearance section, tons of great deals that are going fast!!
