Freshly Made Sketches #22

Hey Everyone

In my previous post I mentioned how frustrated I was with myself at how I couldn’t get my card to work. This card came together without much effort at all – isn’t it strange how things just fall into place sometimes?   Here’s this weeks cool sketch at Freshly Made Sketches created by Jennifer Timko – have I mentioned before how much I love a sketch challenge?

And here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

Create with Connie & Mary #163

Good evening everyone

This is my last challenge for the weekend and I’m just sitting down to watch the finale of The Block.  The card I’ve made is for the challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  This week is a colour challenge and the colours they’ve chosen are sooooo not me (I usually start with Basic Black!).  It’s so good to enter challenges as they take you out of your comfort zone.

This is what I came up with:

Play Date Cafe Challenge #95

Morning Everyone

It’s official – I’m addicted to challenges!  I guess that’s not a bad thing for all of us stampers, but sometimes I think I should be cleaning rather than feeding my addiction. My card this morning is for the Play Date Cafe Challenge and this is their colour palette we used for our creations.
The colours I’ve used for my card are Night of Navy, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Pear Pizazz & Blushing Bride DSP and Whisper White.  I’ve used Greenhouse Garden again as it’s my new stamp set and I can’t get enough of it.  I stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride and Concord Crush (as I don’t have any Night of Navy ink yet). I then made up some leaves, scored a crease in them and then ran them thru my crimper.  I added a few basic pearls, curled the petals upwards and the flowers were done.  I stamped the greeting in a circle as I have seen this on a previous sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop Challenges and thought it looked effective.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mojo Monday 204 & CR84FN 36

Hey Everyone

Who would’ve thought that I actually loved making a card that had Daffodil Delight in it? Yellow is not a colour that comes to mind when I sit down and make a card.  I’m generally the Basic Black, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake – well, neutral colour kinda girl.  The colour palette at CR84FN Challenge this week is Kraft, Yellow & Neutral – gorgeous together and not one I would normally put together, but I’m so glad I had a go at it.  I’ve teamed it with this weeks sketch at Mojo Monday and came up with the following card.

Thanks for stopping by

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Crumb Cake DSP, Daffodil Delight DSP, Very Vanilla, Newsprint
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets: Greenhouse Garden, Sincere Salutations

Paper Players #59 & CCMC #162 Challenges

Hey Everyone

I’ve combined two challenges tonight for my card.  At The Paper Players this week there’s a colour challenge using colours that scare me – Pinks.  I’m way out of my comfort zone with one pink let alone three!  I needed help with them so I combined the colour challenge with the sketch challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary.

I’ve flipped the sketch for my card and this is what I came up with:

This card was a winner at Create with Connie & Mary and made the Headlines at The Paper Players.

Thanks for stopping by.
