CAS Cupcake Birthday

I needed to make a simple birthday card for a friend and time has NOT been on my side lately, so I pulled out my punch, found some scraps to match the colors in the DSP and just went with it. Gotta just love how punches make cardmaking so simple and so quick.

Spice Cake Pumpkins

I have one more fall card to share....I was going to use this for card class this month, but decided not too. I used two different punches to punch out Spice Cake DSP and sponge the edges with Soft Suede ink and then "layered" them to rememble two different pumpkins. I then used the 5 Petal punch and punched out leaves for the top of them to resemble vines. I love the stamp set Grateful Greetings, have used it lots, and stamped it on Very Vanilla and punched out with Fancy Label Punch. Then hung it using Expresso Baker's Twine with a pearl.
