Sweet Shapes Cards

Today I am going to showcase the retiring stamp set called Sweet Shapes. This is such a.....well, sweet stamp set!! It is great for birthday cards for adults or children, thinking of you, thank you and just saying "hi" cards. Enjoy!
Here is card #1:
Stamp set: Sweet shapes
CS: Gable green, Brilliant blue, Whisper white
Ink: Gable green, Brillian blue, Green galore
Other: Photo corners punch, Silver brads, 1/16" punch, Stampin' dimensionals, Cutter kit

Card #2 (this turned out to be my least favorite that I made today!)
Stamp sets: Sweet shapes, Circle of Friendship (also retiring), and Dotted Background (retiring)
CS: Sahara Sand, Blush blossom, Groovy guava (retiring In Color), and Night of navy
Ink: (same as CS)
Other: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches, Stampin' dimensionals and Theater ribbon (I'm pretty sure that this ribbon will be retiring, but I haven't gotten an official word on this yet.)

Card #3 (my personal favorite today)
Stamp sets: Sweet shapes, It's your birthday (also a retiring set)
CS: Rose red, Regal rose, Always artichoke, Certainly celery, Very vanilla
Ink: Rose red, Regal rose, Always artichoke, Certainly celery, So saffron, Barely banana

I hope that you like all of the cards today. Remember if you love this Sweet Shapes stamp set, you need to order it soon because by August 11th, it will be gone for good!

Here is the last card for today. It actually was made by my 10 yr old daughter, Abby. She loves to stamp, but I don't give the opportunity to do it as often as she would like. She used some scraps from my card stock to make this beauty!
The details:
Stamp sets: Seeing spots, Spot on wheel, It's your birthday (retiring), Circle of friendship (retiring)
CS: Confetti White, Bashful blue, Apricot appeal
Ink: Apricot appeal, Bashful blue
Other: Bashful blue striped grosgrain ribbon, Scallop circle punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Stampin' dimensionals
Do you like it as much as I do? I hope that you enjoyed seeing these cards today. Check back soon. I'm trying to get back into the stamping rhythm after a few months of barely any stamping! Have a happy stamping day!

Great cards! My favorites are the first one and the last one that Abby made. Looks like the girls got your creative side! :-) I can't believe Abby is 10! That makes me feel old. :-P
