Stamp with us Challenge

Hello again,
Just a quick post this time, I have been looking at the new blog Stamp with Us which is going to be fab, it will be doning lots of cool stuff but using mainly (or any!) Stampin' Up! products. Here are the two cards I have made following the first sketch.



For this first one I have used the lovely new Train and the smoke from the stamp set called "Choo Choo" (how sweet is that?!) and wheel "Right on Track" with the lovely Washington Apple papers (did I mention I love these papers?) , Bashful blue striped grosgrain ribbon and the essential oval punches all from the mini catalogue. I also used some Kraft card, Bashful blue card and scalloped circle punch from the main catty. Sentiment says "Congratulations.....on the birth of your beautiful baby!" and was a SAB free stamp set.
For this second card I used the lovely Summer picnic papers with the Cheers to You stamp set and co-ordinating wheel 'cheers'. I coloured the drink with my ink papds and a watercolour brush and all the small bits on the glass and wheel background with ink pads and a blender pen. I also layered the umberella and cherry on the glass. All matted onto Real Red cardstock. Corners on the base were done using the 1/2" circle punch which, when you turn it over, has a handy cross shape to line up your paper ( I will get a photo of it if anyone wants to see?) Scalloped circle punch used for the glass.
Thats all folks !
Not really very quick post at all in the end was it ? Thanks for sticking with it! assuming your not already asleep!! LOL!!
Hugs and have a good weekend, Sarah-Jane xx
