Simon Says Birthday Cupcake Card

Simon Says Stamp Birthday Cupcake Card by Maria Byrd |

I love cupcakes and it's one of many things I miss from the big city!  Well, the 24/7 Sprinkles Cupcake ATM more specifically that is.  Needless to say, yummy cupcakes have been in my thoughts lately.  Ha!  Ha!  Ha!  And I found my Simon Says Stamp Stamptember 2016 Sweet Cakes stamp and die set to fit the mood. 😉

Happy Birthday Cupcake Card in Orange & Blue

Happy Birthday Cupcake Card in Orange & Blue by Maria Byrd |

I'm so glad to finally able to share with you my Happy Birthday Cupcake Card (in Orange & Blue) which took me a week to come up with the design!  For this card, I used pictures I recently saved in my Pinterest Color Palette board as an inspiration for the lively orange and blue combo.  That was the easy part, the rest... well, took me a bit longer to figure out.  Sometimes, the creative process is like those cooking challenge shows where you have no clue what the ingredients are.  So you end up cooking as you go and hopefully get a wonderful result at the end!

Who's an old goat?  Well, my hubby will be!  Ha!  Ha!  Ha!  No, it's not mean, just being sweet to him I suppose (since I'm older).  When I saw Art Impressions Old Goat stamp online a few days ago... I thought it would make a perfect humorous card for a cute smart a*s like him.  😏

Lawn Fawn Wish Upon A Star Card

A dear friend asked me to make a card for her and I meant to take a picture of it for a blog post.  However, I sort of forgot and didn't realize it until after I mailed the card.  So, what you see here is a recreation of that card which is made with Lawn Fawn's Upon A Star stamp (released in summer of 2017).
