More and More Popsicles!

I am falling in love with this set.  I have designed so many cards with it and more ideas in my head.  The {Stamps} of Life is the only stamp club I belong to.  I get sent a wonderful set every month.  This month my mouth was watering at the Popsicles.  It shouts 'use up all your bright scraps', so I am!

This card was inspired from Wanda Cullen.  I loved the sketch, which she got from Verve.  I don't know how to upload to SCS yet, so I am not entering this one into a challenge.

This card is a totally different story.  As I was creating the first card, I found several strips of paper full of bright colors that would be perfect for these stamps.  I liked the idea of using black as a contrast with these colors.  Freshly Made Sketches #33 has the perfect sketch for my scraps.  I plan on making more cards with this sketch.

 So I thought I was out of the striped paper before, but found more when I started digging deeper.  I think that's it....or there's another card with these stamps.  I love depleting my stash.  It's bittersweet.  I love the colors and love using them.  And then they're gone.


  1. So cute - and sweet :) Love the black outlines - makes your design pop!

  2. What a great couple of cards! I love the popsicles and the sentiment on the second one is great! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
