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

What's the Scoop? and Thanks A Bunch

Good morning to all,

I hope you are having a nice and relaxing Saturday. I was up early to get my walking in, went for a mani/pedi and now I am home. My afternoon looks like it will be filled with crafty time. Whoo-hoo!

I have two cards in this post, both made with this week's Freshly Made Sketch. Such a fun one with tons of options. After I finished the first card, I decided to make a second using Karen's fun sketch. Both cards use stamp sets from Hero Arts.

Card one is made using SU Heavy Whisper White card stock. The patterned paper is very old Doodlebug. This is a scrap that was just slightly shorter than 5.5", but since the sketch has the layer, I decided to use it, as I wanted the strawberry background to pair with the ice cream scoops.

This is one of Hero's layering sets. The sentiment is cut out using a Die-namics oval die. A few Doodlebug enamel shapes are added for embellishments.

The second card design is inspired by the current Inspired By Challenge photo.
The patterned paper is from Simple Stories and it's called Summertime. The daisies and sentiment are stamped with the new SU Blueberry Bushel ink color, and the blue layer is Blueberry Bushel paper.

For embellishment on this card I've used some yellow pearls and Baker's twine.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!
