My husband's grandmother came over for a visit today and she spent most of the day with my son and the baby. It gives me a break and I'm able to get lots of house work finished while she's here and that leaves me some extra time for stamping today.
I really loved the sketch chosen for today's sketch challenge and so I ended up making two more cards using this sketch. This sketch was so quick and easy and with three children and a husband, I'm all about quick and easy!
For my first card I used my SU Simply Said stamp set. I stamped the flower image three times and punched out a portion of each image. I colored them using my SU markers.
My background paper is just stamped using Certainly Celery ink and my SU background stamp Dots & Daises. I love the way these two stamp sets go together and I don't use them nearly enough.
I used ribbon for my embellishment and the sentiment is from SU's Warmest Regards. I feel as though I'm always making birthday cards, but it just ends up that's what I need the most.
My second card is another Christmas card (I've been making lots of Christmas cards lately). I used the same sketch, but I flipped the sketch sideways.
This is an old, retired stampin up stamp set from way back in 1994! My mother-in-law bought me this stamp set last year at a yard sale.
I just stamped the elves and colored them using my SU watercolor crayons and blender pen.
I used my 1 1/4" square punch to punch out the elf images and my 1 1/2" scallop square punch for my real red paper.
My sentiment is from SU's Snow Swirled stamp set and my ribbon is from Offray.
