So many sketches pt.2 and a winner!

So in my previous post, I had mentioned that I was working on completing 9 sketches for Taylor's Year of Cupcake Challenges. Being true to myself...I finished them at the last minute! hah! This first sketch was my favorite! I'd been wanting to do a scallop circle card for a long time and finally hunkered down and got it done! This follows the sketch from Monika Davis, which you can see here. All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Eastern Blooms
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Scallop circle bigz die, Eyelet border punch, Simple flower embosslit, Pretties half back pearl, Paper Piercing tool kit, word window punch, Chit Chat rubons, white taffeta ribbon, Valet ribbon originals

For this sketch, I used the new hostess Level 1 set Comfort's soo cute! The sketch I used came from Sherrie Siemens here. This is a 4 x 4 square card. All supplies Stampin' Up!

Ink: Versamark, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel
Paper: Regal Rose, Sweet Always dsp, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White

For this next card, I used Comfort Food many times have we felt "sick" and wanted to milk it for all it's worth? lol After I uploaded these (at like 1 in the morning), I realized that I really should use a darker background with white cards...NOTED! Anyway, I followed Jami Sibley's sketch here. All supplies Stampin' Up!

Paper: Whisper White, Bashful blue, Sahara sand, Sale a bration ' 09 dsp

And for the final card, I followed the sketch on Ana Wolfhart's blog here. All supplies Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Embrace Life
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip craft, Versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Urban Garden dsp, Chocolate chip

I'm LOVING the new glitter out of the catalog. I had to have it all! I mixed the chocolate glitter with clear embossing powder when I stamped the flower. It looks so neat in person, but pictures just make it look so....flat. So here's a closeup!

And finally....what (at least 20 people) have been waiting for, lol! The winner of the blog candy is....
