I stamped yesterday!

Thanks to my lovely 7 year old, I got down and stamped some Thanksgiving cards. I just didn't have time to post them yet. I'll try to get them up for you tonight, or maybe tomorrow. Mondays are crazy for me now... ahh!!! Just wanted you to know I'm still here and trying to get my stamping mojo back!

Everyone loves Cupcakes... especially for their Birthday

My sister's birthday is Wednesday, and this is the card. Wanna know how old she is? 10? 15? Nope, she's hitting 40. Bet you'd never guess it with this cutsey card, but she's about as girlie as anyone I know, so oddly enough, this fits her. I can't wait to see if she likes it.
I had fun making this cupcake. First, I masked the words out of the big birthday cupcake so that the cupcake was blank. Then I cut out the bottom from Kraft cs and ran it through the crimper. FUN! The tag was done by coloring it in with a SU! marker and stamped, then using iridescent ice embossing powder to give it some sparkle.

I got a handful of thank you notes done, and I did them using a coloring source that I have been neglecting for FAR too long - my watercolor crayons! I did the classic method - I colored directly on the stamp, spritzed it lightly with water, and then stamped on watercolor paper. What an easy and cool way to watercolor!
