Using Up My Scraps

I have two cards for you today since I had time to play in my crafty corner yesterday!  How fun!   I grabbed some remnants of matching dp that I had on my desk and decided that they would be my inspiration for each card. First I made this birthday card with the Molly's Cupcake digi from Whimsy and Stars.  I colored Molly with Copics and Promarkers, and sponged around her with some Mustard ink while she was still in the Nestibilities die.  The embossed piece under her was already done and sponged, and the flowered layer was already matted, so I just cut out my kraft and text dp, layered on the backing and stamped "happy birthday" from the Vintage Picnic Basket set from PTI.

I'm entering Molly in these challenges...

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Delightfully Simple with a Kids theme
Everybody Art - Happy Birthday
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo with cupcakes and flowers and yellow and pink (although my pink turned to red!)

My second card follows the fun sketch at Card Positioning Systems, and uses one of the new sets from Clear Dollar Stamps called Ladybug Hugs.  It's colored with copics again, and just has a little bit of paper piercing, cuz my sewing machine was upstairs and I didn't want to take the time to set it up. ;-)  The sentiment is cut out with one of the tags from the Tabs and Tags dies that I just love.  I'm going to enter it in the Stamp With Fun - spring challenge, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
