Two sheets have embossed designs to make this paper extra special.

12 sheets total; 2 sheets ea. of 4 double-sided designs and 2 ea. of 2 double-sided embossed designs. 12 x 12''.

Embellish any image without embossing using Crystal Effects.

It gives a high-gloss finish to any image.

■ Creates amazing 3-D effects

■ Applicator tip gives great control

■ Distributed exclusively by Stampin’ Up!

■ Water based for quick and easy cleanup

■ Dries completely within an hour depending on how thick it is applied

■ 2 oz. bottle

Crystal Effects (#101055 - $7.95)

Do you see here how I added 2 layes of the Crystal Effect to this cup cake.

It almost feels like a soft plastic layer on my card. Love it!

With large rubber images it is almost easier to tab the ink on top of the rubber image instead of tapping the image on top of the ink... Does that make sense?

You can do both.. It's just what you prefer right :)

Our revolutionary pads feature a patented, flip-top design that stores the inking surface upside-down, so the surface stays moist between re-inkings.

Features fast-drying , dye-based, acid-free ink

Who wouldn't love a decadent cupcake swirled with creamy icing and topped with a cherry? This delightful four-piece set includes birthday and Valentine's Day sentiments that fit perfectly in the cupcake frame. Coordinates with our Sweet Shop product suite

Small ruffled edges on this grosgrain ribbon add a flirty, feminine look to your creations—available in the new 2011-2013 In Colors.

3/8” wide, approx. 10 yds

Hi dear Stampers.

Thanks for stopping by again. And a huge welcome to my new followers. I love being able to share my passion with you. I received the sweetest email today from one of my new followers asking me if I took my own photo's for my blog. I sometimes think that I am a bit over the top with all my photo's. I love details and I am very visible when it comes to learning something new. When I see something with my eyes then I usually get it way faster then when I just hear about it. I am sure this is reflected in my blog. I am not the best with words, so taking photo's take away a bit of that pressure :) + I love taking pictures.. and I am happy I can use this other passion in my blog.

So on to my card. I am so excited to show it to you. I think that it turned out so .. well.. SWEET :) I have been itching to use this new Stampin Up Sweet Cake stamp set. And it did not dissapoint me. I love it.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #224 from this week to set up my card. It is such a beautiful sketch and I will use that one again I am sure.

Well.. we're potty training our littlest one.. It has been fun. While I am writing this she is sitting on the potty, reading books and yes.. eating her lolly pop.. We all need a little bribe sometime right :)

Well. I have a dear friend in Holland to call. She left me a message and I hope she is still awake.. You have to love the time difference between these 2 countries.

Oh, did I mention that with the windchill it is - 40 Celcius in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I hope that thought brightens your day, wherever you are in this big world.

Inky hugs, Pauline

  6. Oh Pauline, wat is het koud bij jullie. Ik dacht dat het hier in de USA al koud was, op het moment ('s middags) -10 graden C. en het zonnetje schijnt. Er is weer een sneeuwstorm op komst, dus als we morgenochtend wakker worden ligt er nog een pak bovenop de sneeuw die er nu al ligt.Winter Wonderland! De snow blower staat weer klaar ... Sorry, ik wijk helemaal af, lol! Wat een leuke kaart heb je gemaakt en wat zijn die kleuren mooooooooooi!

    Take care and stay warm!

    Hugs, Laura
