US, Cupcake Crafters and The Sweet Stop

Even though I am no longer a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I am still a faithful user of their products.  I love how a package of their designer series paper can go such a long way, and give such different results.  For the 2 cards below, I used DP from the Pawsitively Prints line - I just love how they look so completely different even though they use the same papers/colors.

This first card is for the
Unscripted Sketches #90 (I was a Top 3 Fave for last week's sketch!)

I used this sweet digi image from Spesch - colors are Almost Amethyst, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Old Olive.

This next card I made for 2 challenges:
Sweet Stop # 92 (I flipped sketch on its side)
Cupcake Crafters - Bright, Summery Days 


I used Mavis from Stamping Bella again (OMG - she just came out with a new release that I am totally trying to refrain from spending HUNDREDS of dollars that I have no business spending.... go check out the yummy Bella goodness here...) along with the same papers in Pretty in Pink & Old Olive.  Felt flower from SU!  Ribbon from my stash.   

Can you tell I am becoming addicted to paper-piecing?  Both cards have paper-piecing for the clothes... :)

So today is Snow Day #5, I do believe... according to the news, we got at least another 6 inches last night, although I haven't been out yet to judge for myself.  So it looks like another day of staying in and making cards - rough life, eh?  hee hee
