I chose a gingerbread person stamp from a favorite Pink and Main set as my common item. For some reason I thought it would make a cute topper for a cake on one card and a sweet Christmas couple on the second. Here's a closer look at each:
Supplies: Paper - DCWV pink A2 card; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;
Momenta watercolor; BoBunny Believe Collection 6x6
Stamps - Pink and Main Cocoa Kisses (retired); Hero Arts for Archiver's wedding cake (retired);
Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired); Taylored Expressions Simple Strips
Other - colored pencils; foam tape
I stamped the gingerbread girl, masked her off, then stamped the cake leaving off the wedding topper portion. I colored with pencils as I had left my Copics elsewhere. Wouldn't you know it - while using a blender pen, I got a blob on my girl - noooo! So I stamped another one on the pink watercolor paper and added pink pencil & stamped the face. Nice and quick. Trimmed it out and layered atop the blobbed one, then fussy cut the entire piece leaving a white border. Cut a white stitched rectangle and a rainbow one; layered all onto card and popped the cake with topper with foam tape. Added a Taylored Expressions sentiment strip from my pile.
Supplies: Paper - DCWV brown A2 card; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;

Studio Calico Magical Collection 6x6
Stamps - Pink and Main Cocoa Kisses (retired)
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired); Pink and Main Cocoa Kisses dies (retired)
Other - colored pencils; foam tape; Hero Arts lacquer pen
For the Christmas card I used a different gingerbread face on my girl - nice to have that option! I stamped the couple on kraft paper which wasn't as friendly to colored pencils - oh well, used them anyway! Very quick card and on the inside the sentiment reads "Sugar & Spice make Holidays Nice" which is perfect for this sweet challenge!
Thanks for stopping and thanks to Darnell & crew for a fun challenge!!
