Old Meets New

Happy Saturday, everyone! I have been still feeling pretty under the weather, so I finally broke down and took a day off yesterday. I proceeded to sleep until 11:30am this morning, so let's hope that I just needed some sleep!

I have three cards for you this morning, all for various sketch challenges and oddly enough all of them use new stamp sets (most), paired with old designer paper! Hence my post, Old Meets New!

My first card uses the new set, Morning Cup (#120489 clear, #116988 wood). I used the OWH Stars & Stamps sketch challenge from earlier in the week for this card as I thought the three small panels suited this stamp set well.

The images are stamped in brown Stazon On and then colored in with Stampin' Write Markers.

My second card uses the new set, Perfect Punches (#117022, wood / #120516 clear) and the older set, but still current, Lovely as a Tree (#115026). It is paired with the Christmas Cocoa designer paper from last year's Holiday Mini Catalog. I used the Lizzie Anne Designs
for this card and I really love how it turned out!

My last card for today uses the returning set, Falling Leaves (#115368). You can't really see it in the picture, but the center panel says "Happy Thanksgiving". I don't send out many Thanksgiving Day cards, but I do send them to a few close family memebers, so I figured I should get cracking! This is paired with some of my all-time favorite designer paper, Fall Flowers.

This last card uses one of the bonus sketches from this week's 2 Sketches 4 You.
