Happy Hump Day!

Here are a couple cuties I made last night with some paper I picked up over the weekend. It is Dog Flowers and Dog Stripes by Deja Views. I got it at Michaels for 4 for $1.00. I also picked up some American Crafts paper that I will use later.

The first one uses the cupcake from Treat Yourself. I embossed the cup on the stripe and cut it out. The top of the cupcake was colored with Prismacolor pencils. The scallop circle is from my Cricut as well as the orange circle. I just can't justify buying all of the scalloped punches when I have 14 Cricut cartridges to cut shapes with. So, I am trying very hard to use what I have! The sentiment is from Stampendous and is an acrylic so I could bend it into a circular shape. The bkgr. uses the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I love it!

The second one is, at long last, using the Big Blooms set. I cannot believe this is the first time I used it. I stamped the smaller flowers with versamark on the bkgr. and layered the flowers with dimensionals between the layers. The clear button has the striped paper stuck to the back and is wrapped around the edges with orange floss as well as tied with it. The stem is just ruffled and glued. The sentiment is from Papertrey and is embossed in black.

Thanks for stopping by to look. I love how they turned out! Hope you do too!


  1. I love these colors!!! I agree with you that they are great. I told myself I was going to stay away from Michaels since I have been there four times in the last three days. Now I have to get this paper!!!

  2. Oh love the colors. I was going to stop in there today and decided I better not. Oh well - need to go now. Thanks!!!!

  3. Pretty cards. And lovely colors. I wonder when Michael's will come to Finland? They sure have big demand here.
