Stampin’ Up! ? La Andy Warhol

Amy Gehman, a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, sent me this amazing "Happy Birthday card" influenced by the art of Andy Warhol.  I love the bold, colorful cupcake design!  Catch more of Amy's striking cards on her blog!


My dear customer and stamping friend, Maria, surprised me with flowers this week.

I love how the petals are tipped in green.  Many of the yellow lilies have bloomed since this photo was taken.  Beautiful!

FABULOUS TIP!  Several of my Stampin' Pretty blog readers contacted me regarding yesterday's Framelits video tutorial.  They shared that using a sticky note to hold the Framelits die in place on it's journey through the Big Shot works as a temporary adhesive. Genius!  Thanks for the heads up, guys!

    Love the cupcake card…smart lady to make it resemble Warhol! Beautiful bouquet…lilies are wonderful and waiting to see something new from you with colors or designs! Thanks for the tip and I agree about using blue painters tape or masking tape to not hurt our cs/dsp. Always enjoy your shares/tips/videos!

  5. I always use the Scotch brand photo tape on things I’m sending throught the Big Shot or temporarily placing items on a card to make sure they should stay. My sister is a photographer so that’s how I heard of it.

  6. You never fail to impress Mary! Very cool card idea, thanks!!

  7. Great card! Can’t wait to try something with this design idea. Love the framelits tips, too.

  8. Mary, I love this card. Very original and great inspiration for new ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  9. That cupcake card rocks! You are right: The bold, bright colors are so Andy Warholish. Awesome card.

    And you got such lovely flowers! What a great week for you 🙂


  10. from magnetic sheets, scotch tape and blue painter’s tape . . . you guys rock with “crafty” ideas for keeping the framelits in place. thank you! mary

    Another great temporary adhesive is the blue painters tape found in the paint section of hardware and paint shops.

  12. SO MUCH to comment on today Mary. First up – AWESOME YUMMY Card from Amy. Love the clean lines and the fun look our cupcake punch took on in this card. WELL DONE Amy! Second up – what an amazing treat to have flowers deliveried to your home. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL! And your last little tip you sneaked into the ending of your post today is THE BEST. I have STACKS of Post-it-Notes sitting on my worksurface and will find it fast and easy to just grab one when running the new framlits through my Big Shot. MANY THNAKS for all those who forwarded you that tip. ENJOY your weekend girlfriend!

  13. What a fun card – love the colors! Thanks for sharing.

    Regarding keeping the Framelits in place while cutting with them, I’ve used a magnetic strip underneath the cardstock to keep a “similar product” where I want it. However, I can’t take credit for the idea, I saw it onine.

  14. Mary, thanks for posting my card…it’s fun to see it on the “big screen” 🙂 The flowers you were sent are gorgeous! Have a great weekend!

  15. One adhesive that I would not be without is removable Scotch tape. Never leaves a mark! Works great with framelits or anything else that needs to be temporarily kept in place.

  16. What a great tip for the framelits! I have been using small pieces of scotch tape, but it often mars the paper when I remove it. Sticky notes to the rescue!! Thank you for the tip!!

  17. Hi, I love the colors of the cup cake card. Nice.
