conference swap

This is the swap I made to share at the conference in New Orleans.

2012 amuse products:
hey cupcake stamp set
grape, pistachio, grapefruit cardstock
grape, pistachio, grapefruit ink
I stamped each cupcake on sugar cardstock and again on the colored cardstock. I cut out each cupcake liner and scored the lines using my Martha Stewart scoreboard. I attached them with pop dots. I stamped the icing in coordinating ink and cut those out as well. I added a little sparkle with some diamond glitter and stamped my sentiment. I was able to find a copic marker that matched each color of cardstock to color in the lettering.

Work in progress....

I had all 44 of them laid out to dry after I added the glitter.
The new colors of cardstock are so pretty!
Don't forget, you can order all the new amuse studio products on Feb. 1st here

your'e so sweet

I love how these trident gum packs turned out. I ran through my cuttlebug some sugar cardstock and wrapped it around the gum pack. I stamped the sentiment on the new grapefruit cardstock and attached it to the top. I tied a piece of sheer organdy ribbon around it and added a heart to finish it off.  What a sweet treat!

don't try this at home!

I was in a state of panic yesterday when I was running an embossing plate through my cuttlebug when all of a sudden I realized both rubber mats and paper wound themselves up into the top of my cuttlebug. After a little patience and working it back and forth, I was able to get all of it out and back in working order....whew!
