Playing Along With the Paper Craft Crew and Freshly Made Sketches

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is another combo for the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and the color challenge at Paper Craft Crew.

I'm a little behind on birthday cards this month, but these are going out today.

I used Crushed Curry for the card base and made my own "DSP" with stamps from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set stamped in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. The sentiment is stamped with Emerald Envy on Whisper White and layered with an Emerald Envy cardstock strip. The word "congrats" is also cut from Emerald Envy using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits and is adhered using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I added a little bling with some rhinestones and Clear Wink of Stella. You can see it a little better in the photo below.

I hope my friends like these cards, even if they are a little late!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Supplies used:

Playing Along with What Will You Stamp? #80

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for the Swirly Bird challenge at What Will You Stamp?

This bundle was one of the first things I ordered from the new catalog, and though I've used the thinlits several times, I hadn't yet inked up the stamps. Well, that changed today! Here's today's card:

As you may have noticed from several of my posts recently, it has been wedding season in our family. In the past year, two cousins, two nephews, and my son have gotten married, and tomorrow, it will be my niece's turn! Add in a couple of family friends, and we've been busy.

We're hoping for beautiful weather tomorrow, but no matter what, this is a sunny card! 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
