Stampin' Up! Button Buddies - Inkspiration Challenge

Dear Everyone

I created this card for the Inkspiration Challenge #86 in which we had to use Real Red, Old Olive, Marina Mist & Whisper White.
I took the opportunity to play with the Stampin' Up! Button Buddies set again...this time with the cute little cherries!
A couple of fun details.....I used half of the Fancy Flower punch as a partial border behind the main panel and I used Crystal Effects on the cherries to make them all dewy & glossy! It came up great! :)

Materials used (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps - Button Buddies, So Happy For You (retired)
Ink -Real Red, Old Olive
Cardstock - Whisper White (smooth + textured), Real Red DSP, Old Olive DSP, Marina Mist DSP, Old Olive (textured)
Tools - Fancy Flower punch, Crystal Effects, Scallop Edge Border Punch

Stampin' Up! - Teneale Williams CASE

Dear Everyone
I have been wanting to CASE this card from Teneale Williams for ages. One of the girls at work asked me for a birthday card, and , since I work at an orchestra, I wanted to put together something with the 'music' Newsprint DSP.....the layout of the main stamped panel is a bit 'off' as I wanted to feature the notes at the top of the DSP....rather than cover it up.

It is a very ambitious CASE, I know.....Teneale's work is just beautiful!

Materials used:
Stamps: Punch Potpourri (retired Hostess), Well Scripted (sentiment), Aviary
Ink: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake (for sponging edges)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Newsprint DSP, Love Letter DSP
Embellishments: Paper Daisy (coloured with marker), Build a Brad (punched out Love Letter DSP for centre of brad), misc ribbon.
