Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch 111

Hi Lovelies,

Today's sketch for Try Stampin' on Tuesday is a really good one (well aren't they all)!  I love how so many ideas flow from this sketch.  

I decided to give this first card a masculine feel.  Since I'm so low on Birthday cards.  I used the emboss/resist technique with Distress Inks on the stamped panel.  I used the yellow pp for this panel just so I got some added texture.  I really love the colours of Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge & Pumice Stone together.  They really make that fern leaf stand out.  I'm breaking out some stamps I haven't used in ages as well, which is helping the Mojo return as well.  

This next card has to me a retro kid feel about it.  Not sure why though?  Maybe it's the colours of the red & blue.  Anyway I did a little paper piecing on this card for the cupcake, fussy cut the red banner & balloon out. I used pop dots on the balloon to make it look like it's floating.  The best bit was this was a really quick card to make.  

Well the snakes kidlets seem to be very quiet at the moment so had better go & find out what chaos & mayhem they've gotten themselves into this time.  Take care & sending hugs to you all.  Oh please don't forget about my little give away here.

The emboss resist on the first card is amazing. Perfectly done! Actually both of your cards are great!

Your panel on the first card is stunning Paula. Love the colours and the way the fern is lighter. And your second card is so sweet with that lovely cupcake.
