Simon Says Stamp (Already!)

Ack!  I can't believe it's the first week of August already AND that it's been a month since I last posted!  I hope everyone's been enjoying their summer - and their stamps!  LOL!  I noticed the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is "Anything Goes" and decided it would be a good opportunity to share a few cards I made at a recent Stampin' Up workshop.  At the workshop we used one of the new designer series papers called Sweet Taffy- love the color combinations in this collection!

One of the projects was a birthday gift bag and since I have more of a need for birthday cards I took the kit materials home and used them to "CASE" this fun card from Betsy Veldman.  And here is my card:

Supplies Used:  SU stamp set Big News (sentiment) and Dotty Angles border stamp, SU Sweet Taffy dsp and melon mambo, tempting turquoise and daffodil delight cs, SU daffodil delight, old olive and tempting turquoise ink, SU daffodil delight seam binding ribbon, SU flower punch, Papertrey Ink Ruby Rose stamps and dies, Doodlebug baker's twine, WR Memory Keepers corner rounder, Eyelet Outlet white enamel dot, Making Memories white eyelet, Martha Stewart border punch

I closely followed the workshop design for the next birthday card adding a panel of SU textured Bermuda Bay cs behind the dsp and stamped panels for more contrast and a googly eye:)

Supplies Used:  SU Zoo Babies and Just Sayin' stamps sets, SU Word Bubbles Framelits Dies, SU whisper white, pumpkin pie, bermuda bay and smoky slate ink and cs, Sweet Taffy dsp, SU smoky slate chevron ribbon

Thanks ever so much for your encouraging comments!!!
