 This sketch certainly challenged me - I had fun trying to decide how to play. In the end, I turned the vertical rectangles into candles, and the rest followed. A great challenge from Paper Players (PP534), thanks!

Paper Craft Crew PCC419

 I loved Paper Craft Crew's sketch PCC419 - it's one I'll definitely be using again. 

I'm still getting my head around all the lovely berries in Stampin' Up's Sweet Strawberry bundle - and the add-ons from Sale-a-Bration, but the colours just make me happy! So this was a card that gave me pleasure to make, on both counts. 

Stampin' Up! card, (Whisper White, Pacific Point, Night of Navy), Ink, (Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Memento Tuxedo Black, Petal Pink), Subtle embossing Folder, Sweet Strawberry DSP, Strawberry Builder punch, Layering Ovals framelits.

Sweet Birthday

 I loved the colours in the latest Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge, and thought they might be a good reason to try my 'Sweet Ice Cream' stamps and punch, which have been looking at me accusingly since I bought them. As have the many beautiful DSP's I've acquired recently. Anyway, whether you call my inspiration guilt or a creative challenge, here's the card!

Stampin' Up ink, (Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron, Highland Heather), card, (Whisper White, Pear Pizazz, Gold foil), embossing folders, (Subtle, Basketweave), Hydrangea Hill DSP, Sweet Ice Cream and Itty Bitty Birthdays stamps, and Ice Cream Builder punch, Layering Circles and Sending Flowers dies,

Babies on my mind

 A 'baby' theme from Less is More #434, and a 'baby' amount of space to play with - just one inch - from AAACards #185 - what a challenge! It was certainly an exercise in self control.

The card:

The ingredients: Stampin' Up! card (Whisper White, thick Whisper White), stamps (Oval Occasions, Itt Bitty Greetings) and Melon Mambo Watercolour pencil. Memento Tuxedo ink
