Sketch and Stash #24

Woohooo, I've nearly finished making birthday cards for this year, just a few more and that's it. This card I made following the sketch from Sketch and Stash. My neglected stash is my BasicGrey two scoops - paper and buttons, I haven't used them for ages. And again I've used my C.C. Design shy Kiki stamp. I played around with my new Bow-Easy, and it's wonderful for making bows and it is easy!
Paper: BasicGrey two scoops
Ink: Memento tuxedo black and Versacolor umber
Accessories: Copics, BasicGrey two scoops buttons, Martha Stewart punch and ribbon.

Sketch and Stash #23

I'm way behind making cards for christmas, and it's not like I don't know when it is each year! I start the year off really well, but by February I just push the christmas stamps to one side and thats it until November - and then panic time! Anyway, I have 6 birthday cards to make, so I thought I'd best get on with them.
I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash this week, and used my new Hope stamp and Bloom and Grow papers. I've only used the stamp once before, but the chipboard and flowers have been sadly hidden in a drawer! This is the sketch
Stamp: The Greeting Farm - Hope
Paper: My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow, Core'dination cardstock
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copics, Prima flowers, Dovecraft brad, chipboard

The theme this week is 'No Patterned Paper' and as I wanted a quick simple card I had to put ink to the stamps again. Stamp: Waltzing Mouse Stamps - Sewing Box - hugs (don't you just love the name!)
