Mojo Monday #401, Pals Paper Arts #255 & SUO Challenge #124

Hey Everyone

Another weekend has flown by again.  I didn’t get to spend much time in my craft room, but enough to create a card for three challenges – Mojo Monday, Pals Paper Arts and SUO Stars & Stripes Challenge.  Here are their inspiration pics:

As I’ve been on a star card roll lately I really wasn’t going to create another one, but as the challenge at SUO was Stars & Stripes I just had to!  I love stars for a masculine card. Here’s my card:

Pals Paper Arts #239 & Cardabilities #116

Hey Everyone

I’ve been out of action again for a couple of days with a migraine and the only day I get craft headache-free and it’s 36 degrees outside!  I really need to get myself a portable air-conditioner for my craft room.

Because I was so hot I only made one card, but I managed to combine it for two challenges – Pals Paper Arts colour challenge and the sketch challenge at Cardabilities.

 

Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #383 & Pals Paper Arts #238

Hey Everyone

Just a quick one tonight before I head off to bed.  My card is combined for this weeks sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

I’m not much of a heart user, mainly because I don’t have any heart dies as yet.  My hearts are hand cut, except for the stamped one from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called I Heart Hearts.  I must remember to put the heart dies from Stampin’ Up! on my next order.

ColourQ #275 & Pals Paper Arts #236

Hey Everyone

I had a fabulous day on the weekend helping my mum with her market.  If it wasn’t for her and her stall, all of my cards would sit in my craft room probably getting ruined as I just dump them in a box after I take a photo of them.  I had a couple of requests for kids cards and realised I had none to sell.  I looked around for a challenge to rectify my lack of kids card and found I could combine my card for the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the colour challenge at colourQ.

Pals Paper Arts #230 & Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #332

Hey Everyone

I saw the challenge at Create with Connie & Mary was to make a Gift Card Holder and decided I could make a head start on my Christmas gift card/money holders.  I’ve combined this challenge with the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts – they’re the perfect colours for Christmas!

I have a confession – I’ve never used this retired Stampin’ Up! Christmas Stocking Die before. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that buys products thinking I’m going to use them – only for them to sit in the cupboard for possibly 3 years??? I made sure I used my new Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the envelope with Endless Wishes in Baked Brown Sugar and the sentiment is from my Wondrous Wreath Framelits Dies. Quick and easy!

And look! I made more than one!

Pals Paper Arts #222 & Retro Sketches #135

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card I made today.  This time I’ve combined my card for the following challenges – Pals Paper Arts and Retro Sketches where you can use any past sketch.  Here’s PPA’s colour combo and the fab sketch I chose from Retro Sketches.

I’ve had Stampin’ Up!s Choose Happiness sitting unopened on my bookcase for a little while now and decided it was time to ink it up.  I’ve used my Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight blendabilities to give the flower some colour and the leaves are coloured with my Old Olive blendabilities.  I know Old Olive isn’t part of the challenge colours, but I’m hoping the DT at Pals Paper Arts won’t mind.  I finger walked Dictionary through Early Espresso ink and then stamped it off once on photocopy paper to dull the colour.  I then finger walked it on my cardstock so you can see bits of the print in the background.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I’ve used Banner Blast for the banners. Here’s my card:

I pulled out a favourite retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set of mine – French Foliage – for my card. I’ve also used a retired set called Lovely and Lacy and the sentiment is from a set that the name kind of escapes me at the moment.  Here’s my card:
