Card Sketch A Day Challenge: 2 Cards

I've got two cards to show you today from the Card Sketch A Day blog site. I am one of the featured stampers today, so these are the two cards I made from the sketch that was sent to me waaaaay back in December...and too be honest I COMPLETELY forgot I had submitted these cards until I made it over there today and guess cards were up! Whoops, slight over sight on my part!
The first card I made using Stamping Bella's Bella on a cupcake, however I cut her off of the cupcake! I just LOVE this daisy paper and wish I had purchased more of it! I think I could make TONS of cards using it! I added some daisies to this card also outlining them with a blue colored pencil to make the white pop a bit and added some Stickles to the center of them.

  • Stamps: Stamping Bella Bella on a Cupcake, Sentimeny by Hero Arts
  • Paper: Sorry...I have forgotten! oops!
  • Punches: EK Success, Cuttlebug Tag
  • Other: Cricut George Cart for Circles, Colored Pencils, Stickles

I also created a "Love" card for Valentine's Day using one of the stamps sets I won off of Jennifer McGuires Blog. I added the crown (which I cut from the patterned paper) and added some bling to it with some rhinestones. I also used one of my favorite color combos for this and brown (love that combo)! I also added a little heart charm (found in the wedding section at Wal-Mart) to finish this card off. This is a little bit of a creative stretch for me since I usually do "cutesy" type of cards, but I think it works.

  • Stamps: Autumn Leaves Gypsey Style II
  • Ink: Tim Holtz
  • Other: Cricut George Cart for Circles, Love Charm, Organa Ribbon, Rhinestones
