New There She Goes Clear Stamps

Hello friends and followers!  I hope you are having a happy Saturday.  Today I have two cards for your viewing pleasure.  The first was based on The Pixie Cottage Sketch 72 and the zesty color combination of yellow, orange, green and white from Cupcake Craft Challenge 144 using a set from There She Goes Clear Stamps' recent release called 'Freeze the Moment':
I masked the popsicle into this cute little girl's hand and colored her in with Copic markers, though her dress was paper pieced, and some Stickles were added to her hair bows and her lime popsicle (which remind me of Edy's lime bars - yum-MAY - like a non-alcoholic margarita on a stick!) for a little sparkle.  In the corners are 3/4" punched squares from pre-glittered papers from DCWV that I cut in half to complete the sketch.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:


For my second card, I used Card Positioning Systems Sketch 220 and drew inspiration from this week's Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger photo:


The wallpaper and pillows gave me the idea to use blue & white patterned paper to resemble upholstery and I came up with this card:
The patterned paper is from a retired Stampin' Up! hostess patterns pack and the images are from 'Fine Furnishings' and "Fine Furnishings Additions' by Gina K. Designs.


That is all I have to show you this Saturday evening.  I hope your weekend is going well.
