This first card uses this week's sketch challenge at StampTV from Melissa. I used one of the new In Colors for 2009-2010 Soft Suede....LOVE it!!!! Along with More Mustard and Whisper White. The stamp set is called Autumn Days. And the sentiment is in the set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. This one is almost SUO.....The images are from the Asian Artistry set. It's one of the new Level 2 Hostess Sets. So book your party with me now for July so you can get this set in your hands soon!!!! The card base is the new Soft Suede and I paired it with the retiring Baja Breeze. I'm sure gonna miss this color!! I stocked up on the cardstock and the reinker.....and you should too because after this month, it's gone for good. I colored the flower with Prismacolor Pencils blended with OMS.
For my last card I used the sketch from StampTV from Jessica. The stamps are from one of the new Level 3 hostess sets called Kind and Caring Thoughts. It's an awesome set!!!! Lots of great sentiments. I paired it with Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla and the To The Nines DSP. I double stamped the flower in Sahara Sand then Chocolate Chip to give it a shadowed look.
