Some of My Favorite Stamps

Two very different cards to share today, both of them using sketches, and both of them using stamps from two of my favorite stamp companies. 

The first is for Paper Smooches challenge.  For this one I stretched my card out a bit from a standard card by using a flip-it card from Sizzix.  The center of that flip-it card is a square, and that is where I used the sketch to decorate the focal point of the square.

I love how clean this card came out, with all that white space.

My second card was inspired by Reverse Confetti's sketch challenge


For this one I used two different stamp sets, two different die sets and three different pattern papers to create my design.

I stretched my tag out by cutting it where the rectangle of pattern paper would hide the gap.  I love the look of the tag, as it provides a different design element that also includes a ribbon tie.  I thought about sequins, but in the end went with the arrow clip for embellishment.

This one would work for a masculine card, even with the ribbon. 

Hope you found some time to create today, and if not, there is always tomorrow!
