Happy Friday everyone. Today being the last day of March I’m posting my first Easter card. This features the stamp set Little Cuties with the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP stack. It’s coloured with Stampin Write Markers with Pacific Point ink for the sentiment and Pool Party and Pacific Point card stock. Today is the last day for getting SAB Rewards before they retire.
This is the third birthday card we will be doing at my birthday stamp a stack party! Please join us on Saturday March 18th from 2-4pm as we have fun creating Birthday cards! There’s even cake.

It will be held at my home in North Vancouver BC Canada and everyone is welcome. Message me or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
I’m holding a birthday make and take party. It will be on Saturday March 18th from 2-4pm. We will make 3 of each of 3 different cards. This is my 2nd card of the 3. If you missed the first go to my blog and look back a bit it’s there. If you’re going to be around North Vancouver BC Canada email me at email@example.com for details. There will be cake and refreshments too! It promises to be a great afternoon. This card is made using the Cupcakes and Carousels suite and some SAB free Glimmer Paper. Just a word on the suite they put a little taste of a whole lot of Embellishments into one package instead of having to buy a whole lot of different Embellishments separate. I like that idea!
I’ve got another event to announce. I’m having a birthday stamp a stack party!!! No it’s not my birthday Yes I’m too old for parties! But I’m working on 3 birthday cards we can gather together and produce 3 of each. That’s 9 birthday cards you can give to family and friends. Here is the first of the 3. The date is Saturday March 18th from 2-4pm. The cost is $20 but with a $25 or more purchase before shipping and tax I will refund half. There will be cake and refreshments and we will have a blast. Book your space ahead as I need to know how many are coming. It will be at my home in North Vancouver BC Canada. Message me for details. Also if you want to do this and the date doesn’t work for you message me and I can arrange to throw a party for you and your friends.
I put the stamp set High Tide together with the DSP stack Cupcakes and Carousels. I used inks in the colours Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise for the water, Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand for the Sand, Calypso Coral and Early Expresso along with a So Saffron Stampin Write Marker for the lighthouse and for the birds and sentiment I used Early Expresso. I must say I was delighted with the Tombow Multi Purpose Liquid Glue to attach my light house image to the DSP. It gave me enough time to move the image into the perfect position but became permanent in a fast enough time. I’m definitely sold on this glue and it’s not overly water based so did very little warpage on the paper. Most good non water based glues have very noxious fumes but I do not find this with the Tombow and trust me I’m usually very sensitive to some glues fumes.
This is all from the Cupcakes and carousels suite: the stamp set, the DSP stack and the embellishment kit. I also used watercolour Paper, Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay card stock. The ink pads were archival Basic black and peekaboo peach and its coloured with Stampin Write Markers. I love that this suite comes with an embellishment kit rather than each Embellishment sold separate. It made it more affordable to have a bit of everything instead of paying for each Embellishment separately. Carousels have such happy feelings about them. I’m in love with this suite.
