My first Sketch Challenge (SC148) on "Splitcoast Stampers"

This is the first time I've actually participated in a challenge. It's just for fun, no rewards/winners. Every Wednesday a moderator chooses a sketch (see below) and then all that want to participate make a card and post it on splitcoast. You can check out their website (look to the side bar on the right) for more info and the rules for each challenge.

Since it's my hubby's birthday tomorrow I figured this would be a good way to make him an original card. And since the sketch was done for me, it was actually pretty easy to make. (Of course I was still working on it for an hour and a half) :o) I figured posting this card before his birthday was a safe bet as I would die of utter shock if my dear sweet husband actually read my stamping blog. :o) He's wonderful, just doesn't understand my insane addiction to stamping.

Alright enough chit chat... here's my card.

Stamps: Loads of Love, Boatloads of Love

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Basic Grey(I absolutely love this paper)-non SU!

Ink: Same as above, more mustard, pretty in pink, Stazon-on black

Accesories: Chocolate ribbon, mustard brads, color spritzer-chocolate chip marker

Simple boy birthday

So I once again need simple boy birthday cards. I made this for some of my nephews and then embossed their age on the cupcake. I think they turned out cute. I totally copied it from SCS. What else is new. I should just put that at the top of my blog... "everything is cased unless otherwise noted." :o) There is glitter on the blue cupcake part. I just smeared the glue pen all across the cardstock and dunked it in my glitter container. Not a very glamorous technique, but it worked.

Stamps: Eat Cake
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Bashful blue, white
Ink: Chocolate chip, Certainly Celery
Accessories: paper piercer, stapler/staples, glitter/glue, punch, scallop punch (used for the white and the blue cupcake topper)
