Calypso Fun!

CC flatCalypso Coral ~ such a great color!  It’s a pinky orange and blends with everything,, and it’s pretty prominent in this dsp ~ my fave Cupcakes & Carousels 🙂

CC envieThe nice big sentiment on today’s card is from the Cool Treats set.  I love big sentiments!  It’s stamped on a fun label which is part of the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit (lots of other cool stuff in the kit-check it out!).


I wanted to put some white splotches on the card, but it didn’t come out quite like I had planned…operator error!  I’m going to try to perfect that technique and do it on another card!

Fancy Congratulations

Congrats No. 1.4

Do you have someone who needs a CONGRATULATIONS??  Today’s card would be perfect!  It’s a fancy congratulations card–perfect for a very special occasion.  I’m still having fun with the cute little No. 1 banner from the Affection Collection stamp set, and placed it in the center of one of the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits.  The larger congratulations flags really emphasize your greeting – it’s a double congratulations!

Congrats No.1.2
