Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #17

It's Thursday!!! Thanks to everyone that joined us last week at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! We're so glad you play along and enjoy these challenges with each each week! This week is a super cute inspiration challenge and I just love those cupcake toppers! Handcrafted party decor is totally in right now so it's fun to see this carry over into our challenges! My friend Mindy just asked me to create some more cupcake toppers for an upcoming friend's baby shower, so I'll make sure and share those with you! CLICK HERE to see photos from Mindy's daughter's birthday party and the cupcake toppers I made for her!
I needed a 'thank you' card to send to my friend Regina! She had me over last weekend for a crafting day and we had SO much fun! Here's what I came up with for this week:
Stampin' Essentials Tips:

  • My card layout is based upon this week's MoJo Monday sketch! I just love the simplicity of the design and the four square pattern! My Squares are 2" x 2" and cut from Marina Mist card stock!
  • Hello BLING!!! Oh yes, I love the NEW Stampin' Up! Rhinestone Jewels (119246)! They are 1/2 back, and include 150 pieces per package! 50 each in 3 different sizes! But the best part is that they are SELF-ADHESIVE! Check them out on page 188 of the Idea Book & Catalog! There is also Pearls Jewels (119247). These beauties are a steal for only $4.95 per package!!!
  • No stamps or ink were used on this card!!! Can you believe it!?! The embossed 'Thanks' sentiment is from the 'THANKS' Embosslit die (115957) on page 215 of the Idea Book & Catalog! I ran the die through my Big Shot (113439) with Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso card stock. Then trimmed out just the 'THANKS' with my Paper Snips (103579) and layered it on top of the Early Espresso die-cut!
