2 Cards 1 Sweet Sketch

Happy Hump Day Peeps! Hope your week is going well.

Today I have two cards to show you, both done with the same Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge On Karen Giron's Blog, The Sweetest Thing.

I love to take a sketch and do it twice with different stamps, papers and accessories. it really shows the versatility of the sketch and shows off our DS paper so well.

First up is actually the second one I made, but my favorite. I used the Trendy Trees Stamp set and some kiwi kiss, riding hood red and basic black and Rockabilly DS paper. I stamped the trees with kiwi and riding hood red ink and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the trunks. I used the three flower punch for my flowers, punched with riding hood red. I added silver brads to the centers and to the top corners.

The sentiment panel is stamped with chocolate chip ink onto white and layered with kiwi. The ends are made with the curly label punch. The center panel and sentiment are up on dimensionals.

This next one is made with the Cheep Talk Stamp set and I used the Good Morning Sunshine DS paper along with some Pacific Point, whisper white and chocolate chip card stock.

I added some of the fun corduroy brads in summer sun and pacific and some chocolate chip grosgrain.

The branch is stamped with kiwi and chocolate chip ink and the bird is pacific and summer sun. The sentiment is also stamped with pacific ink.

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

oh my goodness, they are both so cute. I'm drawn to the polka dots though-they are my fave! I love how you do each one 2 ways.
