What a Fanfare!

The stamp set included with the Fanfare workshop kit is one of my favorites right now.  It includes pieces of a cupcake, an ice cream cone, balloon, candle, and this adorable sentiment of "Let them eat {cup} cake."   When you purchase the Fanfare workshop kit, it comes with a complete paper packet, stamp set, buttons, waxy flax, and instructions to complete a 2-page layout and six cards.

Using different stamps from the set along with a variety of papers and colors, you can create an assortment of different cards, appropriate for many occasions and ages.

Using papers from the Sophia kit and stamps from Fanfare, this card is just so 'sweet.'  The icing is made using Glitz Glitter Gel, and adds a nice sparkly dimension to the card.  

Another card using the Sophia papers and the Fanfare stamps.  Now that I see the scanned image of the card, I think I will remove the three sparkles near the top of the card and replace with a pink bow. 

Using the same stamp set, along with Card Chatter-Birthday to create a more masculine card.  Cocoa cardstock was embossed using the Argyle Cuttlebug folder for the background of the card.   

Wanted something with bright colors, so used Gypsy and Pear for this card.  Unfortunately, on the scanned image the ink for the ice cream appears more blue, but it does actually match the purple Gypsy cardstock in the background.

Again, the Gypsy ink does not scan well.  The card really does look better 'in real life' than the picture.  The Traffic Jam Cuttlebug folder was used to emboss the backgrounds.
