On My Couch

Lisa Johnson recently released 2 stamp sets that are so much fun - On My Couch & On My Couch Additions. I've seen so many cards with these sets but had yet to ink them up myself...until this past week! I found some time and combined the stamp set with Taylored Expressions Cupcake Sketch Challenge #76. You all KNOW how much I love sketch challenges - I have tons and tons to use still. :D

In fact, I'll be back this weekend with my first 2 Christmas cards using a Mojo Sketch, be sure to stop back by!

I seriously have a new love in my life...Papertreyink. I just love their stamp sets, paper, buttons, ink - you name it, if they have it, I "think" I need it. I work very hard to convince my sweet friend Toni that she needs their products too. Yes Toni, you're welcome!!

OK, on to the card. I used Papertrey's Berry Sorbet & Kraft card stock for this one. Isn't that polka dot chair just adorable? And that little pillow? What do you think about the DP I used for the pillow and the background behind the chair (just below the scalloped circle)? You see, that was a print job gone bad!! I was almost out of colored ink so my paper came out peach, pink and purple - URGH, nothing pretty about it but I've saved it for several months and it worked perfect with my color combo! I used just the peach portion and tossed the rest!

I kept with the theme of dots and embossed my Berry Sorbet with Cuttlebug's Swiss dot folder. All layers were edged with Papertrey's Vintage Cream ink and the dots were lightly sponged with the same ink. I made two identical cards just changing the inside sentiment - again, such fun stamp sets!

I'm glad you popped in; I love when you visit. Have a great weekend! Hugs, ~M.

I love the monochromatic berry theme you have with this card. So girly yet fresh :O) The bow is the perfect complement to the card...keeping in the girly theme. Love your clean lines and layout also...I'm a sketch girl myself :)

Oh, and I am soooo with you on the addiction to PTI! OMG...what happened to me? I think I "need" everything they sell also...I really need an intervention :O)
