Happy Birthday A-La Freaks!

Happy Birthday!! Well, at least Freaky-Style!! You should have just come from the AMAZING blog of my incredibly talented friend, Dawn Olchefske. I'm am never NOT floored by what she comes up with!

My first project today is just a color block card ... I love doing this sort of thing. A "block" card can be done for anyone of any age ... boys, girls, young, old ... just change up the colors and the images a little, and you're good ta go!!!

Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Real Red, Wild,Wasabi, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Real Red
Accessories: Whisper White Satin Ribbon, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Bitty Buttons, Bitty Punch, Dimensionals

And what's a birthday without a banner to help celebrate it?? I was really trying NOT to use the "Create a Cupcake" stamp ... honest ... really ... but I couldn't help myself!! Those stinkin' cupcakes are just stinkin' ca-YOOT!!!


Here's a closeup ... my favorite thing to do with the cupcakes is to texturize the frosting with the Perfect Polka Dots and Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Folders ... I'm just hooked, what can I say???

Stamps: Create a Cupcake, Lovely Letters
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Build a Cupcake Punch, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

Next stop on the hop?? Lee Ann Greff! Check it out!!

Hi Wendy!

First of all, thank you for getting the He IS Able blog up and running again! I can not tell you how much I appreciate your help!

Also, I love that color block card! I have never seen that layout. I really need to try that...and that BANNER is Fabulous. I can see your love of cupcakes everywhere! lol

Does your Cricut Cake thingy work on cupcakes, too.
