More Sprinkles of Life

I am loving this stamp set and used 5 different sketch challenges to create this little set of 5" square cards. It's rather amazing how much I get done when I enter my craft room at 8am and don't switch my PC on until 1pm! 
The joy of this year's Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set Sprinkles of Life  is that you can do so much with it, like...

A tree! I used the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge 541 for this card. 
I've stamped the tree trunk directly onto a 3" square piece of Very Vanilla, then stamped the leaves on to another piece and used the coordinating punch to punch out the tree top. The grassy bank that the tree is sat in is from Work of Art stamp set, which is staying with us!

All the pattern paper used on these 5 cards is from the new Cherry on Top DSP stack which is a 6" x 6" stack, rather than the previous A6 size (yippee).

An ice-cream cone! This was so much fun to do. I stamped the cone directly on to the Very Vanilla card, then stammped Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pool Party and  Cucumber Crush ice-cream scoops on to another piece. I've then punched each ice-cream scoops out with the coordinating Tree builder punch, and layered them up.

The sentiment is stamped and cut using Handpicked framelits, from the 2015 spring/summer catalogue (available on their own or in a bundle with From the Garden). These framelits are staying too, and get a new matching stamp set!

The sketch for this one is from here. I didn't take part in their challenge, as it's a sentiments one which they have an optional sketch for and I didn't use the sentiment!

A cupcake! I originally did a version of this card at 1:30am, with this sketch! I wasn't too keen so re-did it to match this set. I punched the cupcake case, frosting and tag on a scrap bit of Very Vanilla. I used the punch for the frosting, hand cut the case and used Chalk Talk framelits for the tag. 

A basket of flowers! I used this sketch, more of the Cherry on Top DSP stack and Bitty Banners framelits for the sentiment. 

The basket was stamped in Early Espresso and water coloured in Tip Top Taupe. I stamped the flowers with Tip Top Taupe and water coloured them with Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon.

Clouds! I inked the clouds partly in Mint Macaron and partly in Smoky Slate, to give them a silver lining! I did the same with the rain drops. Banners are using the Banner punch.

All these cards have a coordinating envelope, made using the Envelope Punch Board and the new Envelope Papers. These papers are a little lighter than our DSP, and are perfect for envelopes, with a pattern on one side and plain on the other. There's no reason though, why you can't use them on your cards of scrapbook pages!

Off to make some more cards using a spring/summer set which will be going next Tuesday night (catalogue ends 2nd June).

Happy crafting!
