Crumb Cake Notecard…

So Monday evening will be a BIG night here at Rambling Rose Studio…It will be the first gathering of volunteers to work on the “Hope Note” project.  This is the last card to be created but not yet “kitted” and the first one to get the Hope Note monogram stamp on the back…


Here is the first monogram stamped card back…


I’m so excited to get this program started.  Many of my customers have volunteered to help me put together these cards (we need 120 by July 1st) which should sadly only last a quarter at the center.  We are having a cookout and then sitting down together to assemble all these cards.  It should be a fun-filled evening.

How do you like the new Crumb Cake notecards?  I love the quality of the Whisper White notecards so I was anxious to get my hands on the new Crumb Cake notecards.  And, I’m here to report the quality is excellent.

I have used a couple of new stamp sets and the “block direct to paper” technique for the background.  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you if you feel inspired to give this card a try…


  • Paper:  Crumb Cake Notecards, Very Vanilla and Lost Lagoon cardstock
  • Ink:  Momento Black, Pear Pizazz & Bashful Blue (background)
  • Stamps:  Ray of Sunshine and Choose Happiness, Flower stem is from Everything Eleanor
  • Tools and Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Blendability Pens Coastal Cabana


  • Lost Lagoon layer is 4 7/8″ x 3 3/8″
  • Very Vanilla layer is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Color acrylic block 2/3 Bashful Blue and 1/3 Pear Pizazz stamp directly to paper.  (Sometimes I spritz  the block with water before stamping…it’s a nice effect)
  • Stamp flower and stem with Memento Black
  • Stamp flower on separate piece of Very Vanilla and color your choice.
  • Fussy cut flower, curl edges under with bone folder and attach over stamped image with double dimensionals
  • Stamp sentiment and add Linen Thread bow.

Are you feeling creative and inspired?  I’m so glad you stopped by my blog today and I hope you will come back often and will always find something to inspire you in your own creative journey.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.”

Get those fingers inky…and you will be HaPpY!
