Another one for the Denami sketch challenge #4

I promise this is the last one I'll enter for the Sketch challenge #4! 

The Denami stamp I used is the pacifer.  The little baby items are Making Memories, I picked these up at Michael's.  I used the swiss dot embossing folder on the solid yellow paper, the pp is from a nursery stack.

Denami Sketch challenge #4

I made this birthday card using an I-Cling stamp (cupcake duo), DCWV Rainbow Stripe pp, solid papers from my stash...  The cupcakes were colored using prismacolor WC pencils.  I used the Denami swirl stamp ( stamped yellow on yellow ) to add a bit of interest to the solid paper. I also used Spellbinders Nestabilites (Labels One). 

Halloween bag for Hero Arts Challenge

This was a fun bag to make, it's my contribution to the Hero Arts challenge for gift bags.

I used the Martha Stewart spider web punch, along with small "ink and stamp" Hero Arts Halloween stamps.  I cut the TREATS  letters using my cricut ( Alphalicious cartridge ) -
