Dare to Be Fabulous

Can a bride-to-be "dare to be fabulous"? I don't know, but I thought I would go non-traditional. She loves all things pink as I found out when I went to Sur La Table to pick up a shower gift. She had registered for pink sparkly spatulas and a pink whistling tea kettle. I have to say I found several things at Sur La Table that I would love too!! I resisted. Good me.

Ok, I can do the sparkly that's for sure! Although, I couldn't do the graduation of pinks I was hoping to do. I am out of my favorite Regal Rose paper. :(

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers
Ink: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Palette Charcoal
Paper: Basic Gray, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Accessories: Sakura Stardust Gel Pen Clear, Rhinestones, Brads, Square Punch

Big Upload

I have a few cards to share today. They were not all done on the same day, however this is the first time I have had the chance to upload them. One is for an old SCS color challenge, one using my new Amuse stamps and the newest addition is a card showcasing the most current SCS sketch challenge. Speaking of new stamps and supplies, I am going to try to post a pic of all of the goodies I have gotten in the past couple of weeks. I had a huge eBay auction and liquidated lots of stamps and supplies that have been untouched and collecting dust for way too long. I love fresh eBay $$$!

Country Cupcakes
For SCS sketch challenge 184. All of the cupkcakes are outlined with my Sakura Stardust Clear Pen, which is hard to see in the photo. I also tried my hand at some doodling with my Close to Cocoa marker.

Stamps: Cupcakes (Inkadinkado), Here's the Scoop (My Favorite Things)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Palette Noir, Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel, Sugared (Basic Grey)
Assessories: Bling, Sakura Stardust Gel Pen, Flowers (Joann's)

Tiny Bees

Wow! When I got this stamp the bee was indeed "tiny", so I wasn't sure how to make a whole card dedicated to this little guy. Here was my best first try!

Stamps: Tiny Bee & Have a Bee-utiful Day (A Muse)

Butterfly Colors

I made this awhile back and sent it to my aunt for her birthday. It was a take on SCS color challenge 170. I wasn't keen on the So Saffron layer, but it's all part of experimentation I guess.

Ink: Real Red, Regal Rose, Palette Noir
Paper: So Saffron, Real Red, Regal Rose, White
Accessories: Bling, Ribbon, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Thread Water Punch, Ticket Punch, Sakura Stardust Gel Pen Clear
