Erin Spoiler Alert!!! I posted your card, if you want to be surprised, don't look at my blog!

One of my best friends lives down in Texas, and her birthday is this week. I am mailing her package tomorrow, and I HAD to post her card, so Erin, if you see this before you get it, so sorry...but I did give ya the warning in the title...I didn't do these colors because she has a December birthday, but because she loves these 2 colors together. Happy Early Birthday, if you're reading this!


I used some random Christmas paper and Whisper White and Real Red cardstock.

I combined the Party Hearty stamp set and the Big Bold Birthday stamp set.

I used Real Red ink, Old Olive ink, Kiwi Kiss ink, and Summer Sun ink (for the candle flame)

I used Martha Stewart chunky glitter (LOVE this stuff) for the cupcake top and doubled up on pop dots for the top of the cupcake, just used a single one for the bottom part.

I used some ribbon from Roberts that is Olive colored and is totally YUMMY.

Lastly, I used my scallop circle punch for the celebrate. I think that's it!

Adorable! We have GOT to get you selling these. I can be your manager? 50% of all profits. :)

Natasha said...

50% profits for Heather? That is steep!! I'll be your manager for 45% of the profits! I'm Natasha and I'm Heather's friend in NYC.

I LOVE your cards! You are so creative! Heather and I (and our friend Amber) were talking today about how you should sell your cards on Etsy!

Keep on Craftin'!

Thanks Natasha (& Heathie), I appreciate the nice comments. Amber? Are ya gonna jump in and offer 40%? Heather has told me that about Etsy many times, I think that I will check it out after the holidays, despite the fact it's probably best to do it before, right?

I love it Brittney, so fun and cute! Thanks for spoiling me on my day....your gift by far was the BEST! I still can't believe Dave gave me a cheese grater. That man.

We have GOT to get together and make cards!!!! We could pool our assets and make some great stuff.

Dang, I might jump in and undercut everybody at 25%!!

Thanks Erin for visiting my blog. I love your work here! As far as your comment is concerned, I have found and have a large passion for clear acrylic stamps. No need for a stampin-ma-jig!! I have a few favorite companies I would love to turn you on to. let me know if you are interested. I love stampin up stuff, but i really am over wood block/rubber stamps. I just don't use them as much and do have a really hard time lining things up. of course i do NOT own a ma-jig so maybe i could get better at it. but that is the secret to my lined hearts....
you can email me any time and i look forward to your next post!
