I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

2 More Weekend Challenges - One Card

I have a sweet little card that I made this afternoon for this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge, Act 71 and this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, # 97. I've used the level one hostess stamp set from Stampin' Up's Occasions Mini catalog.

The flower vase is stamped on SU water color paper and colored with my aqua painter with SU inks then cut out with circle Nesties. (The red plaid paper looks more pink in this picture but in RL it's deep red.) 

Stamps: A Slice of Life by Stampin' Up
Card stock: SU crumb cake, so saffron, cherry cobbler and SU water color paper
Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye
Ink: memento tuxedo black, more mustard, so saffron, cherry cobbler
Other: classic circle and eyelet circle Nesties, silver pearls, SU more mustard ribbon, TE red heart hat pins, curly vines EF, TE medium scalloped border die, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

The inside greeting is "thinking of you" and I think I'm going to send it off to my mom tomorrow. 

Thanks for checking in,
