Just been playing (instead of cooking dinner....oops) and came up with this design. I used the new Great Friend stamp set in the Spring Mini Catalogue. The butterflies are stamped on vellum card, thus giving the effect of flying.

I used the Stampin Up Colour Wheel to co-ordinate these colours together, Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquiose, Blossom Blush, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery.
After colouring in the cupcakes with crayons, I applied Crystal Effects over the cherry and icing to add appeal.

Made this one for a good friend, Fran.
Jenny my upline showed me a card in using this layout, like steps or stairs. I couldn't find any instructions on the web, so I made up my own measurements and used Crazy for Cupcakes and Baroque wheel for my design.
I wanted to try out the new White Stazon on Acetate, so came up with this original. Not sure if it will show up on the picture well, but I used small Snow Burst stamp in white stazon on acetate to give an effect of snow falling in the foreground and the trees in the background. I was really please with the final product.
Had a Christmas in July Card Play Day on 31st July. After being at school doing Fete preparation, before the card play, I had completely lost my mojo. A few of the other girls got straight into it, making some great cards. Finally I decided to do embossing resist using Baja Breeze and Pacific Point, making the background card. I am really pleased with the results.

I designed this card using the Tri Fold idea I saw on slitcoaststampers.
The verse on the front is printed on Vellum paper, which I love to use to add verses I have found on the internet. I used Urban Garden DSP to tie all the colours in together.
I adapted a card that Jenni, my upline demonstrated at one of my first Stampin Up workshops, before I became a demonstrator.
I changed the sizes so it was a full size card and used the pretties kit, scollop punches to decorate the front.
