With some of my "to dos" cleared off my plate, I just wanted to stamp for the fun of it. I rifled through my stamp cabinet and pulled out Gina K's "How Sweet It Is" stamp set.
This is Gina K's most recent set for Stamps for a Cause. This set benefits The American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. $7.00 of every set sold is divided evenly between these two organizations. And the images are so completely cute to boot!
I think you know by now that, I love sketch challenges. When I saw Jen Del Muro's Sketch for You to Try this past Saturday, I added it directly to my "must do" projects for the week. As usual, her sample was stinkin' adorable!
My Basic Grey Two Scoops paper was sitting on my desk from a project I had just completed, and I thought it would be the perfect companion for the cute slice of cake in the "Sweet" set!
The circles are cut with my nestabilities and I added a quick border of scallops under one panel with my slot punch. To create the little tab on the bottom right hand side, I punched a scrap with my Word Window punch from SU taped that to a piece of saffron scrap and hand cut a mat.
The cake is dusted with dazzling diamonds (don't be a dummy like I was last night and get Dazzling Diamonds in your EYE by accident, ouch!!) and the card is finished off with a little piece of Very Vanilla wide width grosgrain ribbon. Since SU doesn't offer the wide width ribbon in So Saffron, I usually use the vanilla in place, its a nice complement.
If you read Jen's blog, you may have seen this super cute card she created the other day. Well, guess what a lucky girl I am? Today when I trudged down to the mailbox, I was thrilled to see an envelope with Jen's name on the return address! Her coloring is absolutley fantastic (I know, I always laugh when I compliment grownups on their coloring, when I do the same thing around here all day with the daycare kids! It was so nice to get to meet Jen in person in California for CHA after having read her blog for soooo long!
Okay, is this the longest blog post ever? Have a great day everyone!
