Statement Cards

Today I’m featuring cards using stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop September Release (Don’t miss the release day coupon code below!).  I’m using the sets Easily Distracted and Made by #2:


I don’t know about you, but when I hear a conversation about an upcoming birthday, wedding or other celebration, I tend to only hear “cupcake” or “cake.”  This card captures that moment exactly!

Cupcakes (in addition to the actual birthday) are cause for special celebration, so I used a Wink of Stella brush to add a little glitter.


I personalized the back of this card with a sentiment from the Made by #2 Mini Set:


The Made by #2 mini stamp set is a cheeky, sassy little set of handmade sayings.  Use these sayings on all of your crafty creations!

I love cupcakes soo much that I decided to create another cupcake card:


I could go for a Sprinkles Cupcake right about now, however playing with the cute cupcake sentiment and cupcake stamps from the Easily Distracted Set is calorie free, meaning I can indulge in this yummy stamp set when I want.

On to another card from the same set:



What a lovely card to give to celebrate an engagement, bridal shower or wedding.   I used Perfect Pearls to give the diamond and the sentiment a little shine.   There is a little perfect pearl surrounding the diamond and the sentiment, giving illusion of a shimmery glow from the card.  Creating  these cards on a 4×4 card allows the sentiments and elements from the Easily Distracted Set to take center stage.

Last, but not least, what is just as good as cupcakes or diamond rings? Shopping of course!


After looking at this card several times, I think I’m going to replace the ribbon with twine.  Here is the inside of the card:

  1. I love all your cards! I love cupcakes, too! I think my favorite is the last one! I think you should leave the ribbon in the tag unless you want to use shiny twine. The ribbon adds to the shiny theme of your card. I love all the new stamp sets!


I love comments! I read each & every one. Thank you so much :)
