Happy Sunday! How about some guilt free calories of cupcakes in different shades of reds? Again, I am using the brads that Marlene gave me for my birthday (I am making good use of those, Marlene) :) This cupcake image is from Out of the Box stamp set (level 1 hostess set from the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 catalog.) It has that vintage feel to it, which I love.
One of the best things I find about stamping is the versatility of making your own patterned paper :) You can start by picking your color combo and then start building the patterns. I started with the piece of cardstock cut to size, started the pattern building from the lightest color. This way, I don't need to clean the stamp when I change color. Then, I added the little flowers to fill in those empty spaces.

And then lastly, here is a bunch of invites I made for our friends' Holiday party.
That's all for this week, folks. We will be on vacation all of next week, so be back after the trip. Meanwhile, y'all have a good week ahead!
