CCMC201 – Something Sweet

First…just let me take a minute and THANK everyone who had such nice comments about my new studio.  I am beyond thrilled at how it turned out and feel very blessed that my business supported having it built.  Even the cabinet rep said he was taking pictures for his portfolio…his first stampin'/scrappin' studio!  Luckily his wife is a seamstress, so he understood my need for lots and lots of drawer space!


But, it's Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge!  We have a fun sketch for you to try this week…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE sketch challenges!



I wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s retiring stamp set, Something Sweet, before it goes away.  Better grab it soon!  I love this gumball machine!  It definitely is a set that I will keep!



I started with a base of Pacific Point cardstock and ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I added a band of Big Top Birthday Designer Paper…turned sideways, I thought the horizontal stripes were perfect for the sketch!  I cut the ends into a flag shape.  I stamped the gumball machine on Whisper White with Real Red and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers and the thanks along the side is from Pretty Postage stamp set.  I added a Rhinestone Jewel to the top of the Gumball machine.


I stamped the gumballs in Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo on Whisper White, then punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch.  I filled the gumball machine and even had a few falling out of the opening as the sketch showed!  I laughed while I was creating this…just too much fun! 


Make sure you check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  They had lots of fun with the sketch, too!  Then grab your stamps and play along!  We love to see your work!

Now there is a set I have not seen in a while.  So cute!  I always think these types of sets are so fun.  May have to pull mine out this weekend.  Awesome card, thanks so much for playing along with the LNS challenge this week!

The combination of all the bright colors certainly makes for a "sweet" card. Love all the cut-out gumballs!

This card is so "sweet" Connie!  Love the striped paper as a banner and the gumballs spilling out are so cute.  Again, thank you for all your support and encouragement.  I'll miss you gals!  ((hugs))
