The first card here is an example of a mistake that I couldn't hide. I was lazy and didn't use my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I know better than that, but I did it anyway. Next time I'll not be so lazy!
This is for the CAS52 challenge at Splitcoaststampers. It was a sketch challenge inspired by kmahany. Here is the link to her card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1547773 I really like this sketch, and anticipate using it a lot. You can see how the third cupcake is hopping off the table!

This next card also has a 'mistake' I didn't fix. This is the first time I have used this particular set, and I was in such a hurry to stamp my image, I didn't even think to trim the rubber. After I stamped my image, I looked at it in disbelief and muttered "Oh, isn't that nice!" But the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. It had a nice 'vintage' look to it. That isn't really what I was going for, but it's what I got, so I went with it.
I added just a little DTP around the image for a more defined border, and popped it up. The Cuttlebug layer is sponged with Curry and Burgandy inks, and I made the bow using 2 rulers in the same way you would use the bow-easy. (I needed one more hand for that!) This card is for the Splitcoast color challenge this week, CC256, to use Crushed Curry, Basic Grey, and Bravo Burgandy.
