Featured Stamper and Lauren's sketch cards

Good Monday Morning Stampers!
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend.
I've got a mix of cards to show you today. If you have any questions please holler ;)
This first card is for Lauren's sketch on her blog. When I first saw the sketch I immediately knew I wanted to use some of these SU! buttons that I've had forever but rarely pull out! I cut 1" squares of the hostess prints paper and used vellum tape to attach the paper to the buttons. Not wanting to waste much of the DP I decided to use some strips on the bottom of the card as well.
Stamps: Papertrey; Cardstock: PTI white, Brocade Blue, Hostess Prints Pack Paper; Inks: Brocade Blue; Accessories: 5/8" May Arts Ribbon, SU! clear buttons, Vellum Tape, Paper flower
Ok now this next card is TOO bright my husband said...lol
I went through my scrap box of DP and found some of the cool American Crafts DP. The circles in Lauren's other sketch on her blog got be to thinking I should use this DP. The coloured circles are actually punched out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. Isn't this another cute cupcake stamp?! It is by Pink Paislee and I found it at a local stamp store on Saturday. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Cupcake set.
Stamps: Hero Arts Cupcake, Pink Paislee; Cardstock: PTI white, American Crafts DP(even the pink is the backside); Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, Corner Rounder, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Black Gingham Ribbon, Dimensionals
Lastly, this card is for Sunday's Featured Stamper, Michelle aka Sf9erfan on SCS. The card I CASED is HERE.
Instead of using a background stamp I used DP. I also changed the colours, stamp set and embellishments.
Stamps: Amazing, Verve Visual Happy Thoughts; Cardstock: Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, WW, My Minds Eye DP; Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red; Accessories: Paper Snips, Pumpkin Grosgrain, Dew Drops, Quickie Glue Pen, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
Later this week I will be celebrating my one year blog anniversary so stay tuned for some great blog candy!
