STS18: Sending Hugs

Hi there.
Sharing a sympathy themed card I made for someone.
Used the sketch from Seize the Sketch #18.

I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  

Those little yellow centers are melted Perle beads.
Melted them for about +/- 25 minutes for 320 degrees on parchment paper. 
Thanks to THIS post for the tips. 
 I had tried it at a higher temperature and failed.  Low and Slow!

Thanks for visiting!

STS17: Birthday Card

Sharing a card I made for my nephew's upcoming birthday.
I am featuring stamps by Purple Onion.
I won these cuties last week from the blog.

I stamped the large noteblock in red and gray to paper piece a bit.
I stamped the wee cupcake, colored it with markers and cut it out.
I added a bit of string for the cherry stem, plus some Stickles and Glossy Accents.

 I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch design #17.

 The papers are by Simple Stories.

Here's the Sketch:

Poppy Sketch#1: gift card holders

Found a new sketch challenge and played along.  
It is called Poppy Sketches. The sketch is below.
I decided to make this a gift card holder. 
Of course I took the picture, loaded it and THEN realized I failed to tuck one in there when I took the pic.  It would tuck behind that glitter piece and the flowers.

I stamped the Hero Arts flowers, colored them with Copics, cut them out and layered them.
The papers are American Crafts. 

I will use these for teachers at the end of the year.  
The second one is for the school librarian, of course!


OK, this is the first one I made featuring Lawn Fawn's Dewey Decimal papers.
The gift card would tuck behind that punched line. 
I made this one and THEN realized that there was a color palette to the challenge as well.
I am so with it....

Maybe use the next Poppy Sketch for inspiration!  (:
