The Card Concept #31

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you at The Card Concept.  Take a look at the yummy looking inspiration pic:

I haven’t used a cupcake on my card – mainly because I don’t have one that I felt worked for my shabby card.  Instead I’ve taken inspiration from the pretty pinks in the frosting and berry.

Freshly Made Sketches #131

Hey Everyone

This weeks Freshly Made Sketches sketch is brought to us by the amazing talented Cindy Hall.  You’re going to want to head over to Cindy’s blog and check out her lovely cards.

I’m currently on a holiday with my mum and we’re creating every 2nd day or so – can’t do it every day as then everyone would be saying “is that all you’re going to do all holiday?” (and probably yes, that’s what we would do everyday if we could!) It’s very hard to create on holidays when you’ve only got a third of your craft room with you and to make things worse I only gave myself one hour to pack my SU stuff the night before we left.  I feel like I’ve got no matching papers and inks, so my cards are taking forever!  My mum was asking for a bit of watercolouring advice so I pulled out Stampin’ Up!s Pleasant Poppies for her to start her watercolouring.  Here’s what we made:

Mojo Monday Challenge #336 & colourQ Challenge #232

Hey Everyone

I made this card for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday (I’ve just now realised the challenge has closed, but I was an issue last night with migrating my old macbook pro to my new one and I couldn’t access it for 15 hours!  I guess it’s a case of better late than never!) and the fabulous colour challenge at colourQ.

Love, love, love this colour combo!  I’ve used some old Stampin’ Up! DSPs – Urban Oasis DSP and First Edition DSP and the stamp sets I’ve used are Pleasant Poppies, Kindness Matters and my sentiment is from Happy Watercolour.

Mojo Monday #327

Hey Everyone

Mojo Monday has a fabulous sketch for us this week:

Crisp Cantaloupe is becoming a colour I want to reach for whenever I make a card lately.  I’ve teamed it with Basic Black and and this striking Houndstooth DSP from Modern Medley. I haven’t used much of the Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon as I wasn’t too sure how to make work it on my cards, so I just tied a it in a double bow this time – I have to say that I don’t mind it tied like this.  I’ve stamped the poppies from Pleasant Poppies in the background and stamped the sentiment from Field Flowers over the top.  To finish my card off, I added some butterflies from Kindness Matters.

I thought I would combine my card for FMS with the Dynamic Duos One Year Anniversary Challenge.  Their challenge is to use any of their past colour combinations.  I chose Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive – love this colour combo together!

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #234

Hey Everyone

We have a pretty colour combination for you over at Create with Connie & Mary this week – Midnight Muse (my favourite blue at the moment), Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.

CCMC234pic

I gone with blue poppies again (even though I don’t think there’s such a species of flower) and dancing butterflies.  I’ve stamped the frame from Papaya Collage and tied a triple bow (not sure how that happened – is it too much?) although I probably meant to tie a double bow. I then added two butterflies from Kindness Matters that I coloured with my blender pen. My sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.

We’d love to see what you create with these colours – head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous inspiration the Design Team have created.

Sweet Sunday Sketch #174 & ColourQ Challenge #168

Hey Everyone

I’ve been wanting to play along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for ages and finally found the time today. I really love this sketch so that was what drew me in.

SSSketch174 & CQ168

I’ve teamed the sketch with this weeks colour challenge over at ColourQ.

cqc168pic

These colours initially said Christmas to me, but I decided to go with a feminine card and use my Pleasant Poppies instead.  All my designer series papers is from Festival of Prints DSP Stack.  In the past I’ve mainly used these paper for Christmas cards but I love that they can be changed up for a non-holiday card too. Here’s my card:

Have you ever seen blue poppies? Me either, but this is what I’ve put on my card today.  I just liked the look of them matching the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper!
