Sweet Cupcake Tags

How about some cupcake tags?  Sometimes you only need to add a to: & from: tag and not a whole card, right?  Here are some pretty cute ones!  
 

I suppose I don't need to tell you again how much I love this set!  Not so much because of the cupcakes, although they are cute, but for the way it stamps and the ease in which it lines up for the three-step stamping process.  It makes the stamping experience successful every time!
 
All parts are from the Sweet Cupcake set and Cupcake Cutouts Framelits.  The three-step colors are the same combination of colors I used on the bears, HERE.
 
Don't forget, my new gift card size purse tutorial, Fashionable Favorites, is now available.

Paper Pumpkin Note Cards

I made Paper Pumpkin notes to send off to subscribers using the Paper Pumpkin stamp set that is available to demonstrators.
I love it when the card, matches the logo that matches the box and everything coordinates. *Ü*
 

 
It is kind of hard to see white cards on white background, I wasn't thinking about that when I took a photo I guess.

Edited to add:  My apologies to other demonstrators.  This stamp set is no longer available.

Floral Boutique Fashionable Favorites

Today I have two super cure Fashionable Favorites purses to share with you created by my friend BJ Peters.  She is working on an upcoming event and was kind enough to share these photos with me.
 
 
She made these with the beautiful Floral Boutique Suite.

 
Aren't they adorable??  I love the way she put the Designers Series Papers together and the pop of Crushed Curry!
These are gift cards size purses and make the most lovely gift packaging for the ladies in our lives.
 
This one is from the Tres Chic Handbag tutorial. Equally as adorable in the Floral Boutique blues, don't you think?
 
You can purchase these tutorials for just $3.95 by using the Add to Cart button on the right hand side of this blog, or on the tutorials page. 
Thank you BJ for sharing your fabulous creations with me!

Inking Everything Team Summer Party

Yesterday I showed you how to make the mini bouquet of flowers. Today's photo is the whole gift I gave my friend and downline Vicki for generously offering to host our team summer party at her home.
 
 
This is one of my new Fashionable Favorites gift card size purses in pink, her favorite color along with the bouquet and a card.
  
Highlights of the party include playing a couple of rounds of blind stamping, shown below.
 
 
Cathy Stephenson is blindfolding stamped, Sheryl Knight in round one.  They had to stamp, place Washi Tape, tie a ribbon and add rhinestones.

 
Pretty darn good!

 
Debbie Ware blindfolding Janey.

 
It was fun to listen to the coaching, not so sure I could follow all that!!!

 
 
Our judges said Janey won for that round!  Well done girls!
 
Here is a video of some of the fun, I didn't get the ending though but you can still enjoy the game.
 

 
Round 2
 
 
 This time they had to do some punching and layering, stamping and rhinestones!

 
Amanda Clark had excellent coaching form Marcy Kowallis and Karen Leavitt
 
 
 
Here's was amazing and she was our round 2 winner.
 
 
Competing against Amanda was Sara Sherlock with her coaches Teri French and Janine Pope.  Both of these girls had some seriously mad skills.  they probably could have completed these blindfolded with no coaching!


 
Look at that!  Despite a tiny malfunction with the black pad at first, she did a killer job!!
 
It was a great summer party and so fun to just relax and do goofy things.  I love celebrating and rewarding my Inking Everything team whenever I can and I wish just once we could all be together!
 
I made a fun Flipgram of our piñata busting.  It was full of Stampin' Up! product and candy

 
 
 




 
All the tables were outside, each one decorated in a separate theme.  It was 95 degrees outside so we ended up eating inside and I didn't get a single photo of the tables!

 
Vicki's husband Terry was an awesome help with the piñata and did all the meats for the dinner.  Yummmm---oooo! This man is the party master and they were the perfect hosts!!
 
 
Everyone brought a dish to share and we had more food than could feed an army!  This was just one of the dessert tables!!!
Thank you team Inking Everything for a fabulous evening!

A Mini Bouquet of Flowers

I made the sweetest little bouquet of flowers for my friend Vicki. The whole thing isn't but maybe 6"-7" long.
 
 
 
I wrapped them in tissue paper and brown Kraft paper just like real flowers.
Below I will show you how I made a few of the flowers.


This one started with the Blossom Bunch punch, I believe it was the middle size flower.  Punch five flowers.  Use one for the base and scrunch the other 4 and hot glue on top.
 
This one is the Pansy Punch.  Punch 4-5  flowers and cut as shown above.  Curl the smallest one that is for the center around a skewer to get it nice and tight.  I think midway through I decided to add one more layer near the center.
This one started with a strip of cardstock about 4" long.  I cut it all along the length with scissors and carefully curled it with the bone folder. Start rolling it up, in a spiral type movement so it comes out in different heights.
The leaves are hand cut with no pattern. Curl them with a bone folder and hot glue it together to the flowers.
 
I used the Flower Medallion punch for leaves, I just started cutting it apart and gluing them to wire.  Put the bouquet together and twist all the wires tight.
Pretty cute, huh!  Too bad the picture doesn't really show the scale of the bouquet.  It literally fits in the palm of your hand.
