Mojo Monday #454 & colour Queen #348

Hey Everyone

I had a day at home today and had a chance to play with more new goodies from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.  I’ve combined my card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at colour Queen.

You all know how much I love flower stamp sets. I’ve just found a new one to play with – it’s called Painted and Penned. I’ve used Floral Boutique DSP on my card again and my sentiment is from Birthday Blossoms.  Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #447 & Create with Connie & Mary #406

Hey Everyone

A couple of people have asked me why I don’t make many of my vintagey over-layered style of cards anymore.  I think it’s a combination of time (well, lack of time – they really do take me longer to finish them) and also the negative comment that was left on my blog last year that all my cards looked the same in this style.  I’m going to try and find the time to mix up my cards so that I have a combination of both clean and vintage.

I’ve combined today’s card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  Here are their inspiration pics:

Mojo Monday #441

Hey Everyone

I made this card for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch challenge a few days ago but as we’ve had so much sunshine for the last couple of days, I sat by the pool instead of creating cards!

I played with the lighting on this card for ages but it still came out dark. I’m terrible at getting my lighting right when I’m on hols and don’t have my light tent. Next year I’m going to put the light tent and my coffee machine on my packing list!  Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #440

Hey Everyone

I love this sketch from Mojo Monday – it’s one that I will keep somewhere in my memory to use again.  Being on holidays without a huge amount of craft supplies, really makes it difficult when you decide to enter a challenge and find you didn’t have as much matching stuff packed as you thought. Next year I think I’ll make a list rather than shove everything in boxes at the last minute.

My mum is on holidays with me and I decided to give her a bit of a watercolouring class (not that I’m overly good at it myself). I find colouring of any sort relaxing and there’s nothing more relaxing than being on a holiday and crafting at the same time!   Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #431 & Pals Paper Arts #283

Hey Everyone

I love new stamp sets – they really get my creativity juices going again.  Birthday Blooms is perfect for watercolouring and, as I’m still on hols, I had a chance to practice my watercolouring today.

I’ve combined my card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

ColourQ Challenge #323

Hey Everyone

I’m back with a card that I made for the colour challenge at colourQ.  I am loving these colours together:

I think I’ve said this before that I often need help with a layout when I’m combing more than two colours.  For inspiration I’ve used this sketch from the already closed challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I liked it as soon as I saw it for my card as it made combining these colours really easy.

I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up!s retired Six Sided Sampler and Tape It.

Mojo Monday #429

Hey Everyone

You know what I love about being on holidays? I can take my time creating a card rather than being rushed on the weekend.  I started this card yesterday and finished it off today.  Lots of time to decide what colours and image I was going to use. The card I’ve created today is for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday. Here’s their sketch.

Mojo Monday #425 & colourQ #318

Hey Everyone

I’ve had a busy, busy weekend but managed to sneak in a card for two challenges – Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and colourQ Colour Challenge.

There are some truly wonderful people out there in this creative world of ours.  I’ve met loads of friends through this wide world of blogging and one special friend recently helped me so much when I needed her. I don’t even know if she really knew how much – so I made her a card to say I was touched by her words.

Here’s my card (and it was definitely made with love):

Mojo Monday #422, Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #380 & Stampin’ Royalty #302

Hey Everyone

Gee cleaning up your craft desk does wonders for your mojo!  I couldn’t wait to get in my craft room today and I even left it the same way as I found it – all nice and clean and ready for me next weekend!  I banged out my cards for my design team commitments for the week and then managed to create a card just for fun.  The challenges I’m entering my card in to are: Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, Create with Connie & Mary Colour Challenge and Stampin’ Royalty’s Challenge where their theme is Stars.

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for this weeks Mojo Monday Challenge.  Take a look at their fab sketch:

I’m going through a star phase – can you tell?  I’ve used a retired Stampin Up! set called Simply Stars and my sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday. I’ve also stamped a bit of washi tape from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Tape It.  Here’s my card:
