Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch #217

I thought I'd actually try a card sketch challenge.

Check out this card sketch challenge on Splitcoast.

Aren't these fresh and funky papers?
I pretty much love all of Stampin' Up's designer series papers!It's hard to decide which side to use. I think I'm a dsp hoarder if there is such a thing!

Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Darling Dots, Sweet Sentiments
Papers: Good Morning Sunshine dsp, whisper white, chocolate chip, kiwi kiss
Inks: Chocolate chip, kiwi kiss and choc chip marker, summer sun markerAccessories: 1 1/4 inch square punch, word window punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Goody Goody Gumdrops

Who doesn't love ice cream? And polka dots/

It's been awhile! I've been crazy busy with the girls' volleyball and basketball schedules. Last weekend was the only weekend until Easter that there was no volleyball.

Here's a card I made with the Level 3 set, Goody Goody Gumdrops. I love these colors together. Take the ribbon and the scalloped edge away and this could even be for a boy too.

Here's my recipe:

Stamps: Goody Goody Gumdrops,Little Flowers,Polka dot background

Papers: Whisper white, kraft, baja breeze, real red

Inks: kraft, baja breeze, real red

Accessories: baja breeze 5/8 " striped grosgrain ribbon, scalloped edge punch, 1/2" circle punch

Sweet Always monogram note card set

These are pics of the monogramed note card set I made for my sister's 40th birthday. She's a big fan of pink and really likes orange too, so I think of her when using the Sweet Always dsp.

The holder for the notes is just an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of Regal Rose cardstock scored in half at 5 1/2 inches. Then it's scored at 2 in. from the bottom to form the pocket. I used two different patterns from the Sweet Always papers. The flowers are from Big Flowers and Always. The "notes" uses the Short Order Alpha and a pink pirouette punched out with the Key Tag. To keep it closed I used 5/8 in. chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

The note cards are made using an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of regal rose, cut in quarters. I used a 1 in. strip of the brown polka dots paper, adhered that to the Whisper white cardstock. I stamped the Contempo Alphabet "m" in regal rose on whisper white, punched it out with the 1 1/4 in. circle punch, layered that on a 1 3/8 in. chocolate chip circle and then onto a regal rose scalloped circle punch. The matching envelope has the flower from the Always set on the flap.

Stamps: Big Flowers, Always, Contempo Alphabet, Short Order Alphabet
Papers: Sweet Always dsp, Whisper White, Regal rose, Chocolate chip, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette
Inks: Chocolate chip, regal rose, pumpkin pie
Accessories: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 punch, 1 1/4 in. circle punch, 1 in. circle punch, 1/2 in. circle punch, key tag punch, chocolate chip 5/8 in grosgrain ribbon
