Soft and Sweet

I had little snippets of paper and ribbon sitting on the table, and they all floated together to create 2 cards- I just needed the right stamps!
Both cards used images from Stampin' Up!'s Soft & Sweet. Soft & Sweet is a set I rarely use, and had actually pulled it out and put it in a pile of ' to discard'. I made two cards from the set today, but I still think I will sell the set!

The baby image is the reason I bought the set, but have rarely used it. Today I did minimal coloring, using SU's watercolor crayons Pretty in Pink and Apricot Appeal. The dotted ribbon is one I have had forever, but which never seems to work because the dots are so far apart- today I just accepted it's limitations- I need to use up some of these ribbons! There is a snippet of Apricot Appeal 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon tied onto the polka dot. 5 brads from the Soft Subtles set finish it off! The Cute As Can Be stamp is from Hero Arts.
I colored the bear with Prisma pencils and baby oil. The papers are from large Craft stores, but are in such small pieces I don't know who made them. The card base is PapertreyInk's Stampers Select, the green ribbon is SU's certainly celery, and the pink dotted organdy is from Joannes. The organdy piece was about 2 inches long, so I folded it in the middle, then set it on the 3 inch piece of grosgrain and just knotted the grosgrain over the organdy. I love it when all the little pieces come together as another card!

While I like how these cards came out, I still need to make room! If you want to buy Soft & Sweet from me, cost is $15.00, I'll pay shipping.
