Hey Cupcake.......

Happy Birthday!!

I just love cupcakes and I love pink and brown together to!!
So this card is just perfect for me!! Using a couple techniques, embossing with heat &
embossing with the Big Shot Perfect Polka Dot Impression Folder make this card a
tad time consuming, (but still completely easy) to just make 1, so you want to make a few when you have your supplies out! The stamp set used is Party Hearty! I haven't used this in
a long time, but it is such a fun set!! The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and the card is finished off with a knotted Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon!

Happy Father's Day......

A Card for the Troops to send back to there Special Dads!

This father's day card was inspired by a birthday card my sister, Jeanne Kooker made.
I just loved the colors! I modified it with less DSP, and steps, as we are making a lot of them!
We are hoping to get over 400 cards made this weekend, which is why most of the cards are fairly simple! I used the "Happy Father's Day" Saying from the "All Holidays" stamp set, stamped with Taken with Teal Craft Pad, and embossed with clear embossing powder.
The Card Stock Colors are, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White, and the pattern paper is from the Sweet Pea Pattern Paper Pack. I Crimped the Pumpkin Pie Card Stock and finished it off with a large Chocolate Chip Brad and Chocolate Chip 5/8" Ribbon.
