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:

The Clean Team have created fabulous cards with my sketch – head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look.  While you’re there we would love for you to link up a card.

Thanks for stopping by!

colourQ #237 & The Paper Players #192

Hey Everyone

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Easter and not overindulged on chockies.  I’m pretty proud of myself as I’ve just had my first one and it’s Easter Monday here in Australia – I don’t even think I’ll need to eat anymore.  The challenges I’m entering today are colourQ Challenge and The Paper Players.  Here are their inspiration pics:

It was a quick card for me for once as I was trying really hard for a clean and simple style. The Stampin’ Up! stamp sets I’ve used are Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Summer Silhouettes and Tape It.  As I’m just looking at my card I’m seeing a bluey tinge in the background, but my card base is definitely Whisper White – not sure what happened with my photo.

Mojo Monday#341 & Inspired by Stamping #81

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card and this one I’m sharing is for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.  Here are their inspiration pics:

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve used Early Espresso.  It was once my go-to colour but Sahara Sand has taken over that role now.  I love this new little matching flower stamp set and punch from Stampin’ Up! called Petite Petals – it takes no time at all to whip up a card.
