Beate's Weekend Sketch and the LSC

Yayy, I finally got to stamp today!! I wanted to participate in Beate's weekend sketch challenge and the Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS, but I messed up my first card, so I went ahead and finished it for the LSC and then did a separate card for the WSC. For the first one, I used my new There She Goes stamp set, Friendship Flowers. I stamped the table first, then added the flower pot and foliage to the top of it. The image was colored with my SU markers. The sentiment(which you will see on my next card) is also from the Friendship Flowers set. I used my new SU scallop square punch along with my other SU square punches to make my sentiment panel. The DP is retired Always Artichoke Prints, and the ribbon is from a share I did with Jody Morrow. I added some silver brads and piercing and it was done. This card is about as simple as I like to get, they don't call me the layer queen for no good reason!!LOL!!
My next card was made using my new Inspired By Nature set from SU. I used my markers to color the image directly on the stamp and then used the "huffing" technique to re moisten it. I sponged the edges with Always Artichoke ink and added some piercing and large silver brads. The ribbon is all from SU too. I stamped the grass part of the IBN stamp on the Always Artichoke layer and then layered it on a white card base. I used the same sentiment and punches as on the other card, but I stamped the words in Always Artichoke. The other colors on this card are Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue.

That is all for me for now, I am off to clean my stamp table....otherwise, I may never get to stamp again due to lack of space..LOL!!
