Cupcakes ............with love

Here we go, my first post on sugar and spice..............................I hope you like it!
I couldn't resist playing with some lovely cupcake stamps this week - what is it about cupcakes us girls just love.

These fabulous set of stamps have individual componants that allow you to build your cake, also includes numbers and birthday phrases
I love using acetate at the moment in my cards and especially layouts, great to stamp on to but enables you to still peak through to what is going on behind.

This is my other little favourite thing of the month glue pad. Use it in exactly the same as an ink pad with your stamps and then add glitter .....................wonderful!
The stamps I've used in my card project are from Sugar and Spice and called Happy Birthday With a Cherry on the Top, look out for them they are just fab!
Finally finished the card by covering the inside of the card with cupcake backing paper.
Keep watching for other DT posting to follow very soon....................bye for now!

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
