Here for You

Good Friday Morning Peeps!

Today I have two cards to share with you. Both are made with the same sketch from the Stamps and Smiles Blog.

The first one is made with the flower from the SU stamp set "Friends 24-7". I stamped it three times onto watercolor paper and colored with ruby red and old olive with my aqua painter. I then masked them off and sponged on some baja lightly. I added a little bit of dazzling diamonds in the center of the open flowers. I matted that with some so saffron. The sentiment is from that same set. The designer paper I used is from the Sweet Slumber pack and was matted with baja. I used my lace edge punch for the bottom panel and the ribbon is so saffron that was available during SAB. The base of the card is also so saffron.

This next card is made with kiwi, black and some Rockabilly paper.

The cupcake is from the SU set "Wagon Full of Fun". I masked off the candle before stamping because I wanted to add a cherry to the top instead, so it would match the paper. The cherry is made from a white brad that I colored red with a copic marker and then I added red stickles The cupcake liner is paper pieced with some kiwi paper from the same Rockabilly paper and the icing is colored with a copic marker, #RV11 Pink, and I added some dazzling diamonds to it as well, couldn't hlep myself!!!

The sentiment comes from the Wagon Full of Fun set and I just masked off the part I wanted, used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up and then when I stamped, I got a couple of tic marks from ink on the edge of the rubber!!! Darn it, so I cut out a cherry from the designer paper to try ad cover it!!!

The ribbon is riding hood red and and I again used the lace edge punch for my bottom layer and then added three white brads.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
