The Card Concept #36

Hey Everyone

I really love challenges as they make me try different colour combos that I would never usually try.  Take a look at the fab inspiration pic we have for you at The Card Concept.

CC36pic

I tried a new-to-me technique – the emboss resist technique.  I heat embossed Stampin’ Up!s En Francais with Clear Embossing Powder.  I then sponged Slate Gray and Morning Meadow ink in patches and then wiped away the excess with a paper towel.  I then set about fussy cutting (gee did they take time!) the fern fronds and flower from Butterfly Basics.  Here’s my card:

The Card Concept #33

Hey Again Everyone

I’m back with a second card tonight.  This time I have created a card for this fortnight’s challenge over at The Card Concept.  Here’s our inspiration picture for you:

I to’d and fro’d with this colour combo for ages.  In the end I found the best thing to do was to walk away and come back a day later. I completely threw out the ideas I originally had and started from scratch and my card came together in less than 1/2 hour.  I really love the patterns and shapes in this picture so I tried to carry them over to my shabby card. You may not be able to see it but my pink circle DSP has a subtle chevron pattern to it. It was really hard to photograph.

Just Add Ink #258 & Mojo Monday #392

Hey Everyone

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink was suggested by Rochelle – take a look at the pretty colours she has given us to use:

As colour challenges still scare me, I searched around for a sketch that I could use for the layout.  This weeks Mojo Monday sketch really appealed to me.

I finally put in a Stampin’ Up! order and just received Butterfly Basics.  I really love this pretty flower.  I can see it’s going to be my go-to flower stamp for a while. Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #387 & colourQ #282

Hey Everyone

Thought I would miss the cut off time for this weeks Mojo Monday Challenge, but luckily we have a long weekend and I was able to finish off my card with a few minutes to spare.  I love combining challenges and my go-to challenge for colours is colourQ. As soon as I saw their colours, I knew a vintage card was what I wanted to make.

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week the lovely Jennifer Timko is our hostess – she is not only a talented card marker, she also creates fabulous sketches that make my cards come together in no-time.
