Howdy Ho Everybody!

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days. My Mom had her appointment for some testing, we're waiting on results ~ and I've been playing lumberjack. Hubby and I went to my SIL's again to help out. She lives on property and she can't take care of everything herself. We were playing lumberjack. She has a fireplace that she burns (which I miss) and she needs wood. Sure, we should of done this last summer, but things just get in the way sometimes.
So now I'm back. Nothing in the upcoming near future (fingers crossed) so I should be free to stamp! Wanna see somethings I've been working on?? Good, because I've got things to show you!!

I've been in a cupcake mood lately, so I thought that I'd make a cupcake card. The base card is Pink Pirouette layered with some Pixie Pink and some DP from Paper Salon. I took my Marvy Scallop Punch and punched out some Pink Passion paper and used my paper piercer to poke the holes in the scallops. I then cut a circle of Pink Pirouette with my coluzzle and punched the image out with my Marvy Scallop Punch and used my paper piercer on that layer too. Before I adhered the image panel, Hey There Cupcake from Perfectly Clear Stamps, I sponged some Pixie Pink ink around that layer.

I took two different sizes of ribbon and added them to the card towards the bottom. Over that I added a scallop circle that I punched out of Purely Pomegranate, paper pierced it and added a 1 3/8" circle of Pink Passion paper that I stamped "Valentine" from Darcies in Real Red ink. Once everything was put in place I added some stickles here and there for a touch of glitter and I was done.

You know I get confused sometimes with the Marvy Punches. Since we just got our CB (I know, I'm behind the times!!) we don't own any of the Nesties yet. We do have quite a few of the Marvy Punches. I did find on the Internet on the Marvy site a great tool to print off that helps with the punches. It's their punching guide. I don't know if any of you would like it or not, but if you would click here and it will take you to the site. I think it's a great way to stay organized. Or at least try to Ü

Wanna see another cupcake creation? Sure ya do Ü

Told you I've been in a cupcake mood. My DD bought me this adorable cupcake stand for Christmas. It holds 13 cupcakes ~ weird number, and of course I'm like Mr. Monk, my numbers have to be even - 2 or 4 cards at a time, etc.... ooops my train de-railed-where was I.
Oh, that's right. Cupcakes. I belong to Paper Craft Planet and there is a BIA group. Well, I made this for their Valentines contest. I know, it does not scream Valentines, but I like it!!
I cut the whole image out of this chipboard stuff I have and covered it with Mod Podge and Chocolate Chip paper. Then I cut out the chipboard stuff (something that hubby brought home) and adhered some DCWV pink paper with Mod Podge. I hand cut (yes, hand cut because I'm a glutton for punishment) white sheets of paper for the inside. I sponged some Real Red ink around the papers edges, added some rub on's to the pages, and stamped the saying from the Hey Three Cupcake set and the inside was done.
For the outside I took my BIA and punched all the holes for the inside and covers, added the wire, added the beads to the front with Diamond Glaze, and added ribbons to the wire. I took my Chocolate Chip marker and drew the lines for the "paper" cupcake cup to the front. I glued some pink rick rack with a charm on the front - see, there is something Valentine - and a little flower to the top of the charm and I was complete. I think it's cute. Of course I'm not going to use it *GASP!* I just want it to sit on my desk and look pretty Ü
Well, I think that's all for today. I've got to go do laundry or something to make it look like I did something other than sit on the computer all day!
I'll be back tomorrow, so have a great day!

Joani, you have been very busy. I love the brightness of the cupcake card but my favourite has to be the little book - certainly a unique gift. Look forward to seeing more. Hope the test results come in very soon. Kym xxx
