Look!! I STAMPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, after a mega dry spell do to a massive overload of Uni work I have finally stamped!! I am on a few days break between exams and 4 weeks of prac and decided to join the girls on the Elite Stampers forum for a Cyberstamp. One of the girls hosted (thanks Jayne!) and set challenges for us to complete. A great way to get the mind moving and the creative juices flowing!!

So here are the cards I did for the 3 challenges. Don't love them all but hey, they might appeal to someone out there!! I will try to put up the details for the stamp sets etc tomorrow but if I forget and you would like to know, please email me

This challenge was a colour and theme challenge. It was to be a birthday card using Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip. Not in love with this one but it fit the bill!

This challenge was to CASE a card from the IB&C (picking a random page number) and to use a set from the US retirement list. I used a hostess set called Birthday Bakery which will obviously retire, but I love it :) Don't love the card as I don't think it 'works' but again, someone might like it!

Last challenge card.......

Now this one I do quite like :) This card was made with a little girl in mind, Miss Keely is turning one soon and I wanted a sweet birthday card for a sweet little girl :) The challenge was to use at least 3 embellishments with the only stamping being a sentiment. I used patterned paper, buttons and ribbon. This cupcake punch is going to get a workout methinks!!

Ok, while I am here a couple more cards to show you.
This one was made for the second challenge but I got my stamp sets mixed up and used a set that wasn't retiring! Ooops, well I have another card to give to someone so its all good!

Last but not least, this is the card that I made my daughter for her 4th birthday last month. My first play with the cupcake punch and I LOVED it!!

Bling and cupcakes, a match made in heaven ;D

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!!
