Sweet and Simple

One of the owners of my mom's favorite local craft shoppe is English-American and she introduced us to Smirk scrapbooking elements, which haven't quite caught on in the States yet (but they're oh-so-cute!). The store recently cleaned out its storage closet and I ended up with some of the bounty, including Smirk glittered paper and a set of "sweet for you" plastic stamps. So I was very excited to see Fresh Brewed Challenge #20: Sweet Treats! I was so happy to be able to use all those cupcakes!
Supplies: Fiskars corner punch and deckle scissors, ZipDry glue, Tim Holtz scissors, JoAnns brads, clear stamps from g studio, Smirk Naughty But Nice paper, Marvy LePlumeII pens, Core'dinations cardstock

I had so much fun with that sweet card that I decided to use my leftover paper for clean&simple sketch #113. This time, I used some freebie frame stamps as well, which look really cute but were made from old, cheap plastic that was sticky everywhere. I can't believe how good they look, considering the stamps stuck to the paper! But it was especially fun to do two-layer stamping, which is just too difficult with rubber stamps.I also broke out my chalks to color the cupcake stamps as well as give a light green tint to the backing paper.
Supplies: Fiskars corner punch, ZipDry glue, Tim Holtz scissors, clear stamps from g studio, stash frame stamps, stash eyelets, chalks by Pebbles Inc., Smirk Naughty But Nice paper, Marvy LePlumeII pens, Recollections cardstock
