Sweetness!

Good Morning!
Yesterday we enjoyed some balmy weather here in Edmonton....right around the freezing mark!
After doing a few errands yesterday I was able to start cleaning my stamp area up and organizing a bunch of things. After oh...about 20 minutes I was ready to just stamp...lol so I did!
I worked on a couple of sketch challenges. This first one uses Jen's SFYTT.
I don't often make cards without at least a small piece of designer paper but I just couldn't make it work on this card. I did get my colours from a piece of dp though. Some American Crafts... Romance Line. Isn't this Gingersnap image cute?! She's from CC Designs and the set is called Gingersnaps Hey Cupid!
Here is a card I made using Taylor's TECC50 sketch. I've stamped the Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcake images in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with my copic markers. I used some Circle Nesties to cut them out and dimensionals to pop them up. It's hard to tell in the picture but I added some Stardust Gelly Pen to the tops of each cupcake.
I have an extra Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcakes(thanks to my wonderful husband)that I'd like to offer up as a little blog candy. In order to have a chance to win...tell me what your favourite stamping embellishment is these days. One entry per person please. Don't forget to leave your email or blog address so I can find you ;) I will do a random org draw on Monday morning when I get online.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Dawn, Cute card! My favorite embellishment these days is glitter... I recently got Doodlebug sugar coating glitter that I love! I want to glitterfy everything:)

Pamela said...

I would have to say right now I am using buttons. Second would have to be ribbons. It changes all the time.

These cards are just ridiculously cute! I especially love the CC Designs one - it looks perfect without any DP.

My fave embellie at the mo is probably ribbon. It just finishes every card perfectly! ~x~

Paula Barin said...

Really pretty cards. And I love your new blog banner. Your cold weather has come our way. Brrrr!

Shirley said...

Don't you just hate it when you go to clean the craft area and end up making a bigger mess by just sitting down and making more cards??? It happens to me all the time, thus something is always out of place in my crafting area

You have a great blog site and your cards are always terrfic

DeAnna said...

Awesome card, made me hungry looking at it... I just love the cupcake stamps and would love to be considered for the blog candy. My favorite stamping embellishment right now has to be a close tie between stickles and crystal laquer. If I had to pick an absolute favorite it would be the stickles!!
Thanks so much

I wish I was good at using DP as I have so much I rarely use. That is one reason I love your blog for inspiration. Right now, my favorite embellishments are brads with ribbon a close second. Thanks for sharing the chance to win blog candy.

Nicole said...

Hi Dawn, Wonderful cards!!!!

My favorite embellie these days is ribbon! I used to love brads, then stickles, now it is ribbon!

Thanks for inspiring us!

Susan said...

Right now I love to use glitter. Today we are snowed in (again!), so maybe I will use you as my inspiration to tidy up my craft room! Thanks for all the beautiful cards you show and for the blog candy offer.

Karolyn Loncon said...

Darling cards, Dawn - both of them just make me smile!! As for my favorite embellishment these days, that would have to be buttons and Karen Foster's Scrapper's Floss. I love the look of buttons, and the Scrapper's Floss comes in so many fun colors and has a cleaner, non-rustic look than hemp. Thanks for being such a daily inspiration to me. Have a great day!!

Susan said...

It's early here and when I read your blog candy it sounded like your were offering up your husband! LOL Needless to say I read it again carefully this time. My favorite embellishment is ribbon. It is always the final touch on most of my cards. Thanks for the chance. Also, thanks for the ongoing inspiration, I love to check out your cards and see the fun things you do.

Love your cards Dawn, I really love the circle paper with the hearts, and your cupcakes are so yummy.

Glad to see your weather is a 'balmy' 25 degrees today; guess I should stop complaining about California's winter! My favorite embellishment lately has been ribbon; no card looks complete without it.

Norine said...

I'd have to say that my favorite embellie is the scallop circles... seems like I can't make a card without it.

Thanks for being so inspiring!

Stephanie Hargis said...

I already have this set so I want someone else to have the wonderful opportunity to win this set but I just wanted to say that I LOVE both of your cards! The first card is very simple and although I love dp on my cards too, this one looks fantastic without it! :D Your second card is also adorable! Your coloring is so fantastic! :D

Cutie pie cards Dawn! I love the cupcakes card and your cupid card is adorable! Lately it seems I've been sewing on everything that I make, so that would have to be it! Thanks :)

Lori said...

Cute, cute, cute--both of these! I love the bright, cheerful colors on the cupcake card.

Melissa said...

It was a beautiful day, wasn't it? We have to enjoy it while we can!

I cannot seem to make a card without using adhesive pearls - between that and glitter, I'd have to say those are my faves right now.

Have a great week!

Hi Dawn,

As always, I am inspired by your work and I love how you usually use dp. I know I have certainly added a lot to my collection after being inspired by your site. That's also where I got addicted to adding my favorite embellishments, which are gems, to my cards. Thanks for continuing to encourage and inspire all of us!

How about those Oilers tonight!

Joan Ervin said...

Such adorable cards, Dawn...I love that sweet little image and all the pink on the first one and the super cool sketch with the cupcakes is awesome!!! I just got some felt buttons from Taylor's store and I can't wait to use them. I guess they are my faves at this very monent!!!
