Good morning!  How are all the stampers out there?  I am fine - it feels like spring in my part of Texas.  The birds are all chirping, the wildflowers are starting to bloom and it is a cool crisp morning.  LOVE IT!

This week I had stamp club and we had a ball.  We ALL decided that we LOVE the SWEET SHOPPE SUITE in the Occasions Mini.  We used the designer stickers on page 32, the specialty designer series paper on page 33, and the fun Jelly Bean Brads on page 35.  Oh and also the new In Color baker's twine on page 35 as well.  Isn't it GREAT how all the items coordinate so perfectly by subject AND colors?

Here's the first card:

 This card has a base of Island Indigo.  The Sweet Shop speciality designer paper is so fun - this one we chose has lollipops and candies on it.  I layered Calypso Coral underneath it and love how those colors now pop on the dsp.  The image on the left are the stickers layered with lucky limeage and the image on the right is from the Birthday Bakery stamp set layered also with lucky limeage.  There you see the bakers twine underneath one of the Jelly Bean Brads.  Because it was such a simple card, I decided to put a little tab sticking out from underneath the large panel and made it out of pool party with a shadow of lucky limeade.  There you have it.  Simple and a good way to start the night out slowly to get into the "mood".

Now we are getting our heart rate up with this adorable cupcake card.,  We used the cupcake builder punch on top of the extra large scallop punch in calypso coral with just a hint of the pool party shadow popping up on the top right.  The cupcake has dazling diamonds on the frosting and a heat embossed cherry in Cherry Cobbler (what else!).  Both the base of the card and the baker's twine is Pool Party.  The layers are Soft Suede and Calypso Coral.  Another bit of the Sweet Shop SDSP, this time the cupcake side of the paper, and we scalloped off the additional cupcakes to leave only one row.  We used a small circle punch to make these scallops.  I thought it went well with the scallops underneath the cupcake.  Inside is another Jelly Bean Brad, this time the cupcake one to match this paper.

The final lap is this ADORABLE AWNING CARD (thanks for the idea, Diana Gibbs!)  Wisteria Wonder and white is all that was needed to make this special card.  The awning was punched with the word window punch and the bottom panel was both punched at the top with one of our border punches and then put through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  LOVE IT.  The pastries are from the Birthday Bakery stamp set and then colored with chalk to keep that pastel feeling.  Then of course a little bit of BLING with dazzling Diamonds here and there on the cakes.  Again, inside is another Jelly Bean Brad, this time the Wisteria Wonder heart one.  ISN'T THIS CARD ADORABLE!!

Hope you enjoyed  our cards from Card Club this week.  Get going on some fun cards of your own today and get some INKY FINGERS Y'ALL!!
