I used the hostess set Out of the Box for this one. The cupcake is up on a dimensional. The Bella Rose DSP is retired. My layers aren't quite like they are in the sketch, but I had cut the pieces before I realized.

Another Sketch

The first card is for WSC93. I stamped one of the Serene Snowflakes in Silver ink on Shimmery White paper. (I couldn't get a good picture of it.) I cut the circle and scallop circle with Nestabilities. The sentiment is from the Christmas Punch hostess set. I also used a corduroy button. The second card's image is from Wandering Words in the mini. I thought it was kinda plain, so I tried using the color sprayer with a red marker, and then it looked strange I thought, but oh well. I used the tag corner punch on the corners, and I also used the corner flourish from Patterned Pines on each end of the tag.

The first card is for SCS242. I inked up the paisly tree from Patterned Pines for the main image. The paper is last year's mini DSP. The second card is for WSC92. I used Delightful Decorations and the ornament punch as the main image.

I made this card using WSC90, a sketch from this summer. I've been saving up all these sketches in my inbox, and I am going to get them all done sometime. The main image is one of the sentiments from the mini set Four Christmas. The RHR flowers on each end are from Patterned Pines. I also stamped the 3 snowflake stamp from Snowflake Serenade all over the oval piece in Pink Pirouette, but it doesn't really show in the picture. The oval and scalloped oval were cut with Nestabilities. The DSP is from last year's holiday mini. I still love that paper, and I will be sad when it's all gone. I'm also almost out of the RHR taffeta. I don't think I've used up a whole roll of ribbon yet, but I really liked that kind. It was so easy to tie.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The first card is a Thanksgiving card that I made using leftovers from the second card. The set is called Gifts of the Earth. I also used the Thanksgiving sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The second card is for a co-worker who will be having a little boy in January. We're having a surprise shower for in a few weeks. The "Beautiful Little Baby" stamp is from the Under $10 section of the catalog.

That's what it's all about

I made the first card for a co-worker who gave me a whole bag full of Stampin' Up! sets, and paper! The flower and sentiment are from Kind and Caring Thoughts, a Level 3 set. I stamped it first with Kiwi Kiss, then used a sponge dauber in Rich Razzleberry to put color on the edges of the flower. The second card is also for a co-worker. She has been stressed about meetings last week, and they continue this week, so I thought this sentiment from Smarty Pants is perfect since we're elementary teachers. I colored the flowers from the pretties kit with markers to make them match. I stamped some circles from Circle Circus in Versamark on the blue as a background.
