February Club Projects--Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!

We had our club meeting tonight! Look at that! I'm posting the same night that the goodies were created! Amazing!!

This first project was a little bonus project that I wanted to create with my ladies. I knew that they would enjoy it. We used the Petal Card punch to create this little box. Sorry the picture is blurry. I really had a hard time getting  a descent shot of this little cutie!

Stamps: Create a Cupcake
Ink: Perfect Plum, Not Quite Navy
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Rose Red
Accessories: Build a Cupcake punch, Petal card punch, dimensional

This next project has been all over the blog circuit! It's so cute! My ladies enjoyed this project but it was agreed that none of us would make too many of them! Too much sewing for a group that doesn't sew! That being said, they were still happy that I showed them how to do it!

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Pretty in Pink stripped ribbon, Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon, Jumbo
 brads, 2 1/2" circle punch, Perfect Setting die

I found this GREAT card on Lyssa's blog and had to share it with my ladies! I did change the colors that Lyssa was using to the blues so that this could be used as a little boy's card or a little girls or even older! Everyone in my club LOVED this card!

Stamps: Eat Chocolate
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop oval punch, Large oval punch, Scallop Circle die, Brights DSP, Glimmer paper,
Scallop Trim border punch, 1" circle punch, Crystal Effects, dimensionals

This last card was lots of fun to create! I knew that I wanted to use this stamp set, so I showed it to Abi and she went and got these colors. I was a little shocked at first as I wasn't sure how to use them and I know that I would have never put them together. Well I stared at them for quite a while, I searched the internet for a similar color combo, then I searched the stamp set for a layout! By this time I had wasted several hours of precious stamping time and was pretty frustrated with myself! I decided to just start creating and see what happened. I am really happy with the way it turned out! I think I might even use these colors again!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Music Notes
Ink: Stazon Black, Perfect Plum, Not Quite Navy, Rose Red
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Not Quite Navy, Rose Red, Whipser White
Accessories: Aquapainters, sponges, Finial press embossing folder, Rose Red
seam binding, 2-way glue, Dazzling Diamonds

Happy Stampin'!
