The Challenge #19

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card I made – this time I’ve combined both the sketch and colour challenge at The Challenge.

The stamp sets I’ve used are retired Stampin’ Up! ones called Peaceful Petals and Off the Grid.  I love and quick and easy this card was to put together.  Here’s what I came up with:

Freshly Made Sketches #135

Hey Everyone

Bit excited about this post as it’s my turn to host at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  I love seeing everyone’s interpretation of our sketches.  I do have to tell you though – I’m never fully happy with my sketches as I tend to rush them.  Next time I’m going to get myself more organised and have it completed well ahead of time.

I decided it was time to crack open a never used Stampin’ Up! DSP pack called Kaleidoscope.  As usual I went straight for the papers that appealed to me most, and wouldn’t you know it?  They were the black ones!  To add a little colour I used some Bermuda Bay DSP and coloured my flowers and leaves in Bermuda Bay too so they matched.  The sentiment I’ve used is from a Stampin’ Up! set called Peaceful Petals. Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #335 & Dynamic Duos #93

Hey Everyone

I’m back with my second card today.  This time I’ve combined my card for Mojo Monday’s sketch challenge and Dynamic Duos colour challenge.

Blushing Bride would have to be my most favourite Stampin’ Up! pinks ever, and when combined with Sahara Sand, it would have to be one of my favourite & prettiest colour combos.  I’m almost at the end of any Blushing Bride DSP in my stash.  I wish we could order single packs of DSP like we used to – Blushing Bride would have to be at the top of my wish list.

We have a holiday tomorrow (gotta love a long weekend), so I’m hoping to be back with some more cards.  Fingers crossed…..

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #122

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS122sketch

Don’t you just love this classic sketch by the talented Cindy Hall?  I’ve used some of my new Stampin’ Up! goodies – some new designer series paper called Retro Fresh and some new stamp sets called Simple Stems and Peaceful Petals.  I found this card really hard to photograph and it still seems washed out, but it was the best of about 20 photos!  I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo but I have two layers to each flower because I like to give my cards some dimension and the leaves are lightly coloured with Coastal Cabana ink.

Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team. While you’re there, we’d love you to join in our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.
