Just Add Ink #133

Hey Everyone

Nikki has come up with this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink.  Our challenge is to create a project using Mustard and Metallics.  It’s not my week for my design team duties but I decided to play along to test myself with a colour that I don’t often use.  I’ve chosen to make a baby card using More Mustard as I think it’s a neutral kind of colour that can be used for a boy or girl. My favourite baby set at the moment is a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Bundle of Joy.  I’ve lightly coloured the giraffe and teddy using a blender pen and ink and fussy cut them out.  I raised them up to add dimension to my card and finished it off with brads, a balloon and Very Vanilla satin ribbon.

Here’s my card:

I hope you can join us this week at Just Add Ink – head over to the challenge and check out the fabulous cards the girls have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Mojo Monday #254 & Create with Connie & Mary #214

Hey Everyone

Hope everyone’s had a wonderful weekend??? – I can’t believe it’s over already and I’m back at work tomorrow.

My card tonight is for two challenges – Mojo Monday and Create with Connie & Mary.

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday that I used to create my card:

And here’s the colour palette from Create with Connie & Mary:

It was a good thing I got a few pre-order items from the upcoming catalogue during the week- I was able to use the correct colours for this challenge.  One of the DSP packs I opened was Be of Good Cheer which happened to have the Gumball Green spotted paper in it and the Midnight Muse DSP was from Comfort Cafe DSP that I opened yesterday. I’m not generally a “blue” person, but I think that Comfort Cafe will be my new favourite! I’ve gone with two retired Stampin’ Up! sets for this child’s card.  The teddy is from a baby set called Bundle of Joy and the presents my teddy’s holding and the sentiment are from Favourite Teddy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #43 & Create with Connie & Mary #210

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card tonight!  Tui provided us with this fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week:

I’ve flipped this sketch on it’s side to create my card and I’ve also used the challenge colours from Create with Connie & Mary to finish it off.

I used a retired Stampin’ Up! baby stamp set that I have, called Bundle of Joy – I think this giraffe is the cutest!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
