More Buttons and Bits!

Here are a couple of cards I made for last week's and this week's Featured Stamper Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The first card uses the new Papertrey Ink stamp set 'Buttons and Bits'. It is for this week's Featured Stamper 'va.sunshine'. Her original card can be seen HERE. I kept the same layout, but changed the stamp set, papers/colors, and eliminated the stitching. The cloud on this card, is not included in the Papertrey set. The image is from an old retired Stampin Up! set. My card stock colors are Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla and White. Designer Paper is DCWV 'The Spring Stack'.

My second card is for last week's Featured Stamper Versamom. Her original card can be seen HERE. For this card, I changed just about everything. I was just so inspired by her adorable Teddy Bear Card, that I remembered
my very neglected retired Stampin Up! 'Favorite Teddy Bear' stamp of my own, so I decided to make a card with it. The paper is Very Vanilla, tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel, and Chocolate Chip. The designer paper is DCWV 'The Pet Stack'. The present is mounted up on dimensionals and the image was colored with Prismacolored Pencils and Gamosol.
Before I close today, I just wanted to mention that I found some great vintage digital images on this blog HERE. She is also offering some blog candy this week....lots of free digital images to one lucky randomly chosen winner! So be sure and check them out, especially if you love cute and girly images like I do!
I have off today! Yippee! And its raining too, so I'll get lots of time in my craft room! I hope you will have as nice of a day as I will! Amy
