CCEE Stampers Sketch & SCS Love Challenges

Today, I want to share 2 cards that I created for CCEE & SCS. First is this ODBD card for Cindy Heffner's Sketch Challenge at CCEE Stampers Blog:

The matching Velvet flowers were cut out directly from this beautiful Velvety Designer Paper by SEI. This is awesome designer paper with superb texture. It cuts very smoothly - (yet painfully because I didnt want to use it!) LOL! :) For added extras; parts of the flowers are outlined with pink metallic dimensional fabric paint & sprinkled with pink glitter. The centers are adhesive half pearls by Basic Grey.

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs, Confirmation & Baptism Verses (New Release Set)
Paper: SEI Velvet & Glitter DPs, Pink CS & Pink Bazzill Textured CS (this paper was sent to the ODBD DT directly from kelley. It can be found at her ODBD store HERE.
Ink: Pink Glitter, Marvy Matchables
Accessories: Pink Metallic Dimensional Fabric Paint, Pink Glitter, Basic Grey Adhesive Pearls & Cricut Expression

My Second card is for the SCS Limited Supplies "LOVE" Challenge #LSC254.

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Crafty Sentiments, featuring *YASMIN*.
Paper: Heavy Cream CS & Bazzill Textured Pink
Ink: Glitter Gel Markers, Copics, SU White SIgno Gel Pen, Blending Pens
Accessories: Pink Metallic Dimensional Fabric Paint (for boots, Hat, Gloves), Rhinestones in Pinks, Pink Glitter Cricut, Martha Stewart Punches, SU Piercing Tools
Techniques: Piercing, Paper Tole

The Center Panel for image was cut with the Cricut Expression & it's edges are inked with Pink Metallic Gel Markers to match character's pinks.

Thanks for Looking & Happy Creating!
