The Paper Players Challenge #86 & Pals Paper Arts #131

Hey Again Everyone

I’m back with a second post tonight.  I’ve combined two challenges – the colour challenge from The Paper Players and the sketch challenge from Pals Paper Arts.

How gorgeous are these colours together? – they’re one’s I wouldn’t have used before because I’m still experimenting with colour combo’s and not making every card with basic black!

And this sketch of Margaret’s is fantastic:

Here’s my card – my bling looks black, but I’ve used basic rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder DSP & cardstock
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz
Stamp Sets: Fabulous Florets, Notably Ornate, Occasional Quotes (retired)
Other Products: Basic Rhinestones, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Button, Linen Thread, Square Punch, Dots Embossing Folder

Merry Monday Challenge #8

Hey Everyone

Here’s my card for this weeks Merry Monday Challenge.  Click here to take you to Lesley’s blog and join in the fun.  This way you have some Christmas cards up your sleeve for when “the season” sneaks up on you.

I’ve used the Notably Ornate frame instead instead of the sketch’s oval shape, but I have cut an oval for the stamp of the family and placed it inside the frame. And in case you’re wondering – it’s my mission in life to vintage pretty much every sketch and colour challenge I enter 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Love Letter DSP (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon, Crumb Cake Marker, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets: Notably Ornate, Welcome Christmas, Many Merry Messages (retired)
Other Products: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Antique Brad, Oval Die

Cheers

Colour Q Challenge #105 & Create with Connie & Mary #170

Hey Everyone

I’m combing two challenges with my next card – the colour combo at Colour Q Challenge and the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.

What do you do when your order didn’t arrive when you expected it to, and you don’t have your new DSP you thought was coming?  Make your own DSP with a background stamp. The flourish from my new favourite set of the moment – Established Elegance – came in really handy and finished off my card for me.

This card was awarded a Top Pick at Create with Connie & Mary.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Ink: Black Stazon, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip Re-Inker
Stamp Sets: Notably Ornate, Established Elegance, Array of Sunshine
Other Products: Button, Linen Thread, Seam Binding, Scallop Edge Border Punch

Stamping 411 #222 & Our Creative Corner Challenge – World Card Making Day

Hey Everyone

Happy World Card Making Day! The challenge at Our Creative Corner this week is to create a project inspired by a country other than our own.  I’ve chosen France because when I think of anything french two things come to mind – elegance and vintage.  For the layout I used the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 as it felt very elegant too.  Instead of the oval shape, I’ve used a rectangle shape as it gave me a chance to use my Notably Ornate stamp set again.

This is what I came up with:

I made the Stampers Showcase at Stamping 411.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake

CASE Study Challenge #49

Hey Everyone

I found my Little Leaves Die! – I thought it was gone forever and was about to buy another one.  I’ve been looking for it for about 2 weeks and I eventually found it where it was supposed to be (not sure how that happened!).

Anyway back to the real reason I’m here.  The card below was made by Dawn Woleslage for CASE Study Challenge.  We get to CASE her cards for the month of July and put our own spin on them.

This is my entry for the week:

Case Study Challenge #34

Hi Everyone

For the month of April the talented Silke Ledlow is Case Study Challenge’s muse.  We get to use her designs for inspiration and create our own version of her design.

This is Silke’s card below that we used for inspiration.

For my card I used butterflies as well, but kept my card with the vintagey look.

Thanks for stopping by

See ya
