More Fun with New Stamps

Hi,

I just wanted to share a couple cards that I've been working on. These are ones which I've made using my new stamps from the Occasions Mini.

The first one is a 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" sized card that I made for the sketch challenge on SCS. I used the new Bloomin' Beautiful set and the Afternoon Tea DSP. These colors are so pretty together. I also added a piece of the new silver hodgepodge to finish off this card. Love that shiny silver!




This next card is an idea I've been playing around with for a swap I'm doing. I used the Cuttlebug on the Banana piece, but for the swap I won't do that as the swap is all Stampin' Up!. The stamp set is the new By Ones & Twos. It's really cute!

I was inspired to use this layout by a card I received from my SBS3 sister Cassie. I never think to tear edges and I liked the way her card came out, so I went with it. These colors are perfect for a baby boy. I love them together. The banana colored star has crystal effects on it to give it a little shine and I used the word window punch to add detail to the senitment.

Thanks for looking. Have a great Thursday and Happy Valentine's Day! :)
