Sweets for The Twofer Challenge.....

Hello everyone: Well, it took a bit of time for me to come up with a couple of cards for the new Twofer Challenge, with a theme of SWEETS, and it wasn't because I don't have any sweets stamps, but because I had to figure out how to create two cards, using the same stamp, for two different occasions.
So I came up with these two cards, hope you like them.


**************************************************


I decided to create a Happy New Year card, I don't make too many of those but I really like the way this one turned out.
The image is from a Power Poppy set called Under Glass, love all the images on it with the option to put them under the glass bell or not.
I stamped the image on a die-cut piece of white card stock masking the candle and, with the aid of the MISTI, repositioned the stamp so I can stamp one of the sparklers in place of the candle, then I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, and added a bit of gold paint to the sparklers, the embossing folder is from SU (retired) but I can't recall the name, the golden frame from my stash of die cuts.
The word "happy" and the "2020" are from a die set that I got at the bargain bin at Michael's, I paid $3.00 for it, woo hoo!!
**************************************************
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The border is from a stash of leftover pattern paper, the sentiment and horn are from Power Poppy set called "Marcella's Mixtape Vol. 1"

****************************************************
Here's my Twofer.


I made a Birthday card, coloring the image the same way, I added a strip of pattern paper with the candles, so cute, die-cut the panels and stamped the sentiment from a Power Poppy set called Tea in the Garden, I added some enamel dots from Gina Marie Designs.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The row of balloons are from a My Favorite Things set called, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Ewe Are the Best and the cupcake from a Penny Black set called Cupcakes

A Little Reminder with CAS-ual Fridays.....


Hello, blogging friends: We're at the halfway point at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE so I'm here again with my second CAS card using the beautiful Mon Ami Stamp Set from CAS-ual Fridays.


I stamped the flowers with Rich Razzleberry ink from SU on watercolor paper and using a damp brush, pulled the color just a bit, then I added shadows with my Prismacolors. The sentiment is from the set. 
I die cut the window with a scalloped circle die and placed glimmer paper on the back for a bit of shine. I added the pearls where the details on the flowers are.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment, leaf and bottom flower are from the set.
