The background layer was created using the NEW Friendly Words jumbo wheel by SU. Since this sketch required so many layers, I embossed the chocolate chip cardstock using the Birds & Swirls by Cuttlebug.
The colors this week were Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red & Pink Pirouette. What a wonderful color combination and it works so well with the Friends 24-7 stamp set. The bird was stamped on the oval Nestabilities using memento ink. I stamped the branch again and colored it in using my Copics.
Thanks again for stopping by! See you tomorrow...
Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow, I have another fun card to show all of you. Until then, enjoy your week!

Since I just got this NEW stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Animal Crackers, I used the adorable duck from the set! I stamped the image using black memento ink and colored it up using my Copics. For a little extra fun, I popped the head up using a stampin' dimensional.
Here is a close-up of the baby duck, isn't he cute?! He is sitting on the frame of the NEW Label 3 Nestabilities from Cut At Home. The background was embossed using a smaller die. I created the swirls around the frame and added a quick bow. Quick, simple and super sweet!

For my card layout, I used some of the NEW Parisian Breeze Specialty paper by Stampin' Up! The very first layer background was created using the Friendly Word wheel. I then sponged on some close to cocoa to make it pop a little. All of the layers were pierced using the Crafters Tool Kit & Mat Pack. This beautiful image from the Stampin' Up! set called Friends 24-7. To finish off the card, I added some of the NEW Organza Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

For my sample, I am using the NEW Mama Bunny Loves Me set. I stamped the image using memento ink and colored it in using my Copics. The bottom portion of the cupcake was stamped on the Sweet Slumber paper, isn't this paper beautiful?! I just LOVE all of the NEW paper in the Stampin' Up! catalog!! The layers were pierced and then I popped up the bunny on the circle Nestabilities. To finish the card, I added a fun bow.
