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.

Mojo Monday #331 & Dynamic Duos #89

Hey Everyone

I love the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Dynamic Duos this week, so I decided to combine them.

I really need to get myself a new Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride ink pad and some designer series papers as it’s a colour that I absolutely love.  I used about the only scrap I had from a retired stack that I found and combined it with some Pistachio Pudding designer series paper.  The stamp sets I’ve used are Everything Eleanor, Papaya Collage, Dictionary and the sentiment is from Simply Sketched.  The ribbon I’ve used is also a retired Stampin’ Up one.  Here’s my card:

Cardabilities #91 & Dynamic Duos #87

Hey Everyone

I’m coming to the end of my four week holiday and I’m trying to figure out exactly what I’ve done in all that time.  These four weeks have just flown and I’m wishing I could rewind and start my holiday again!

I’ve been out all day but had a bit of a chance to play in my craft room tonight and whipped up a card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Cardabilities and the colour challenge at The Dynamic Duos.

Black is my new favourite colour again for my card bases. So when I saw the challenge at Dynamic Duos was to create a card with Basic Black and Melon Mambo, I knew this challenge would suit me to a tee.  I had to forgo the dessert option of adding an umbrella as I didn’t really know how to incorporate one with my flowery card.

Here’s my card:

Pals Paper Arts #180 & Dynamic Duos “Triple Threat Challenge” #80

Hey Everyone

This is my second post today – to see my earlier post you can click here.  The challenges I’m entering my card into are Pals Paper Arts and Dynamic Duos “Triple Threat Challenge”.  Here are their inspiration pics:

It’s been ages since I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Secret Garden, so I’ve dusted it off and used it today.  The flowers are stamped in Raspberry Ripple and lightly coloured with my blender pen. The sentiment I’ve used is also a Stampin’ Up! one called Blooming with Kindness.  I found that when I went looking for some Blushing Bride DSP, I only had some off-cuts from a retired Hostess Gift pack (I think!).  I might have to get myself a new DSP stack in my next order.

Dynamic Duos #75 & Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #273

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another post.  This time I’ve combined my card for two challenges – Dynamic Duos where their challenge is to create a card using Tangerine Tango and Basic Black with the option of Halloween.

DD75pic

I’ve used this gorgeous sketch from Create with Connie & Mary for the layout of my card.

CCMC273sketch

I chose not to go with the option of Halloween (as I think I Halloweened myself out with my earlier projects – you can find them here) but I have used some retired Stampin’ Up! Halloween DSP called Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP.  I really love this striking striped DSP and am almost at the end of it which is a bit sad.

Dynamic Duos #68, SU Only Challenges #78 & Cardabilities #81

Hey Everyone

I made this card earlier but have only just had a chance to post it now as we’ve just been out for a lovely Father’s Day dinner.  The challenges I’m entering my card into are the colour challenge at Dynamic Duos, SU Only Challenge where their challenge is to create a projecting with Ribbons & Bows and the layout is from the sketch challenge at Cardabilities.

I’ve gone for another feminine florally card using Morning Meadow and Summer Silhouettes.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  My Perfect Plum ribbon is created by dyeing some Very Vanilla Seam Binding and the colour I’ve teamed with Perfect Plum is Pistachio Pudding.  Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #305 & Dynamic Duos #65

Hey Everyone

I’m later than usual with my entry for this weeks sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  But when I saw Julee’s sketch I had to play along – it’s so “me” with all it’s layers!

Mojo305Sketch

I found this gorgeous colour combination over at Dynamic Duos, so I combined both challenges to create my card:

DD65pic

I love dimension to my cards so I made some handmade roses cut with my 1 1/4 inch scallop circle punch.  I then made a scrunchy bow by dyeing some Very Vanilla Seam Binding with Pistachio Pudding ink – I haven’t dyed ribbon in a while but I love it when I can match my ribbon to my cardstock. Here’s my card:

The Deconstructed Sketch #110 & Dynamic Duos #62

Hey Everyone

Jen at The Deconstructed Sketch has a great sketch this week that really challenged me – but I was really happy with my card in the end.  Here’s the sketch:

I’ve combined the sketch challenge with the colour challenge over at Dynamic Duos.  Their black tie challenge this week is to create a card using Basic Black and Calypso Coral.  The option for us is to use Butterflies – I was up for the challenge to use them.

Dynamic Duos #61

Hey Everyone

The Design Team at Dynamic Duos have a very pretty colour challenge this week:

DD61pic

I made this card a little while ago and haven’t had a chance to post it until today until I saw the colour challenge matched the colours on my card.  I’ve made some rolled roses by cutting some scallop circles and cutting into them round and round until I hit the centre.  I then gave them a bit of colour by daubing them with Pink Pirouette ink, rolled them and then stuck them together with crystal effects.  I added some leave from the Little Leaves Die and finely cut some Sahara Sand cardstock to finish of the appearance of the bouquet of flowers.

Mojo Monday #299, Stampin’ Royalty #182 & Dynamic Duos #59

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for three challenges – Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week is to create a round or square card using the following sketch:

Mojo299Sketch

Stampin’ Royalty have a challenge where all you have to do is add stripes. I’ve added these in the form of this Basic Gray striped DSP.

And at Dynamic Duos Challenge their challenge this week is to create a project using Basic Gray and one other colour of your choice – I’ve gone with Always Artichoke.

DD59pic

I’ve used my all-time favourite stamp set, French Foliage, which is about to retire with our 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up Catalogue.  Can you believe our new catalogue goes live on Tuesday? I can’t wait!!! I’ve teamed the leaves with some acorns from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called All Natural – I don’t even know how old it is, but it’s really old.  While I had that stamp set out, I’ve though I may as well use the sentiment from the same set. Here’s my card:
