  1. Love your cupcake card. The sentiment is great and so are the colors used on the card. The dots/sprinkles really finish it off nicely.

  2. I adore all of your cards and tags. The “Hug Me” card looks like he’s flying through space a la superman. Great work!

  3. I adore all of your cards and tags. The “Hug Me” card looks like he’s flying through space a la Superman. And your cat is so sweet. You’ve done great! 🙂

  4. Love your beautiful cupcake card, and your fruity shaker tags are so fun. Thanks for the video, too.

  5. Oh Therese!!! I want to hug that fox!! So adorable!!!!!
    Love your Cupcake card with all the sprinkles and the tags are awesome. What’s the name of your kitty? don’t you love it when they walk all over your work table and plant themselves right on top of your projects? like they own it and they are just letting you “borrow” it, LOL!!
    Thank you for some awesome inspiration and the chance to win.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  6. I just love that you were able to get that photo of your kitty just about to knock over your card display! Your cards are lovely and I really like how you made the background in the video. It looks so great!

  7. Looks like your kitty cat is quite fascinated with embellishment too! Wonderful post Therese using some of the mazing new goodies. Beautiful work 🙂

  8. Thanks for sharing your talent Therese!
    I just smiled for the little photo bomb… my spaniel is not so subtle… I don’t think there would be a card to share if he came so close to my card photo shoots!

  9. I love your card examples and the colours you have chosen – also love the photo bomb photo…my cats have a tendency to try and get involved when I am stamping and colouring – usually at the most inopportune times!

  10. Oh my gosh Therese! Love how soft and beautiful your cupcakes are. Those are the coolest tags. Love the photo bomb. LOL. Oh my gosh, I am smitten with your HUG card!

  11. Life IS better with cupcakes (and a cat. haha) Awesome tags (love those tag dies) and your 3rd card and video is just awesome! A great job with this release!

  12. Cupcake card is my favorite. I especially loved the video on Hug Me card. I need to find one of those erasers but it was not listed in the supplies. Never fear – Amazon or Simon Says Stamp will have it. Thank you for your good instructions.

  13. The colors on the cupcake card are fabulous. Delicate, soft shades a new way for me to color.

  14. Therese I am so glad I could drop by your blog and comment. I am a big fan of your work and I always looks forward to your creations. I always fall in love with whatever u create 😍

  15. Those tags are super sweet! I love both of your cards, Therese; however, those lightly browned cupcakes look good enough to eat. YUM!

  16. Fantastic cards and tags, Therese! I love the photo bomber! That fox is so adorable, and I love the sprayed background. Well worth the masking of the clouds!

  17. I think this cupcake card is my favorite use of the stamp! It looks like a children’s book illustration!

  18. Fantastic cards! That little fox is sweet. And your cupcake card with the subtle color scheme really jumped out to me. I also love the beautiful cat that joined your photo shoot!

  19. Your cards are so cute. And I love the tags. I could make those to put on the goodies I some times put in my husbands lunch box.

  20. Fabulous cards and I love your tags, Therese! Your cupcakes look good enough to eat 🙂

    Heads Up: I don’t have a cat, but I saw this video yesterday, and fell in LOVE with this project…maybe you will too:

  21. Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry!!! I just added a link, and I had no idea the video would post to your blog, and now I don’t know how to delete my post…Please forgive me!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. I’m in love with the colors that you used to color the fox on your card. Thanks for the tip about being able to use one ink for stamping an image to color it and then going back afterwards and stamping it again with a different black ink to really make the image come alive. Best tip!

  23. So much inspiration! Loved the cupcakes card and the tags were gorgeous, but that fox was soooo cute. Lots of lovely tips and tricks there today too and some new products I need to check out.

  24. The cupcakes look almost good enough to eat, and the background on the other card is amazing. What’s really amazing is thinking maybe I could do that! Thanks.

  25. Thank you for showing out of the box ways to use these stamp sets. I love the cupcakes and I believe in that sentiment, too.

  40. Therese, your cards are lovely. The fox is certainly ready and waiting for his hug. Love the background of that card. The stripes and polka dots on the shaker cards are adorable and your coloring of the fruit makes them so realistic that my mouth waters. But the cupcake card with the confetti is my favorite! And the sentiment is so true! Thanks for sharing.

  41. I really enjoyed your pictures, particularly the one of your cupcake card and the cat. At first glance it looked like the cat had eaten some cupcakes because of the scattering of the white flowers in the background which made me smile
