Sketch Card and Featured Stamper

You know I just got the strangest unsubscription notice from someone. For the reason they put TOO MANY UPDATES ....What is up with that??? Don't most of us post once a day on our blog? That's basically what I do....Oh sorry....today I have TWO....so shoot me!
Anyway, I was rather annoyed by that one....lol
So let's move on....
This first card is of Sophia from Paper Pretties. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch again...or close to. I think the DP is from SEI that I picked up yesterday. I wanted a different sentiment so I used the one from Garden Whimsy....I love this phrase.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Cuddle Me from Paper Pretties, Garden Whimsy SU!
Cardstock: Bravo Burgandy, Regal Rose, Confetti White, SEI DP
Inks: Versafine Black Onyx, Burgandy, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Going Grey, Blush blossom, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Marvy Scallop Punches, Coluzzle, Word Window Punch, Designer Label Punch, 1 1/8", 1"Circle Punch, Regal Rose Ribbon, Organdy Ribbon, Dimensionals, Gems
This card is from todays Featured Stamper on SCS. It's Pam Varnell. She has a fabulous gallery and you can see the card I cased of hers HERE.
I kept the same layout and stamp set but changed the Cardstock, Designer Paper and Embellishments.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Embrace Life
Cardstock: Groovy Guava, River Rock, Confetti Cream, Ginger Blossom DP
Inks: Timber Brown Stazon, River Rock, Groovy Guava, Ruby Red
Accessories: Aqua Painter, May Arts Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Dollar store gems, Dimensionals, Liquid Pearls
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope my daily posting won't keep you away ;)
ETA: I do use both SU! Markers and re-inkers when I watercolour....they blend pretty good with an aquapainter if you use WC paper or Confetti Paper.

Dawn - you did a beautiful job with both cards - I love the sentiment you put with Sophia too!

I had the same thing happen to me the other day with my blog--I look at it as that person's loss, not mine! Love the cards--the sentiment on the first card is just perfect.

Love the Embrace Life card especially. Don't feel bad about unsubscribers -- even my own little sister unsubscribed for "too many posts". Grrrr... Keep on posting, girlfriend -- your talent rocks!!

Don't let the unsubscribing thing get to you---updates are good! Your blog is wonderful! Rock on!

Hey Dawn, don't let the unsub's get you down!! This should make you feel better, I had four in one day about a month ago..keep your chin up, you know we love you!!! (plus... you know it had to be a person that never leaves a comment.)

did any of that make you feel better?
Beautiful cards!!

Deb said...

Beautiful cards, I love the paper pretties stamp and those gorgeous 3d effect flowers!

Maria said...

Hi Dawn!

I hear yah! I have had those unsubscribers that say I blog too much! You can't win them all it seems. Some blog readers don't like that you don't update often enough and there are those that don't like it that you blog daily!!

LOL! I actually had an unsubscriber today and she emailed me and told me she no longer like my ideas anymore because I'm no longer a SU demonstrator! Oh, well!

Love your pretty cards. I love the colors on both your cards. Very lovely!!

You are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, Dawn! Your Embrace Life card is so pretty ... love your watercoloring on the large flowers ... and the dimension of the liquid pearls!

Your Sophia card is SO-O-O pretty! Love the layered sentiment with the bling!

Marilyn said...

Hi Dawn!! I just found your website and let's just say I am drooling!! I added you to my google reader so that should even out the score LOL! Don't worry about the person unsubscribing - their loss totally! Hugs to you and stay warm!!
