Card Positioning Systems Sketch Challenge

Clear and Simple Stamps is this week's sponsor for the Card Positioning System Challenge. Tami Mayberry came up with this wonderfully simple and versatile sketch. If you would like to play along please note that CSS stamps are not required in your creation. In order to play, visit the CPS blog and also be entered in a chance to win a fabulous prize from Clear and Simple Stamps.

I had so much fun with this sketch that I created two cards. For the first card I used one of the adorable cupcake stamps from the Taste of Christmas set from Clear and Simple Stamps that will release on October 15th. The cupcake was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa on Neenah paper and colored with Copics. For the finishing touch the frosting was covered in stickles.

The second card uses a flower stamp from the Gratitide set and the Get Well Soon greeting from the Spring Sentiments set. I also added a Fragment with a gem in the center for a little splash of color.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Yesterday we woke up to a little snow on the ground but I'm hoping it will all melt by the end of the weekend.

Gorgeous cards, both of them Beth. I love how you stamped the sentiment over the image on the second one.

Both cards are great, your stickles looks so wonderful compared to mine!

Those flowers are gorgeous, now wishing I would have ordered that set as well.
