Stamping 411 #264 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #17

Hey Everyone

My card today has been combined for two challenges – Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge – here’s their sketch for this week:

And I’ve used the inspiration pic from Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge – where the colours we’re to use are light blue, light yellow and light pink as our main colours. I think I’ve achieved this….

How good do those cupcakes look???

Thanks for taking a look.

Cheers

Stamping 411 #222 & Our Creative Corner Challenge – World Card Making Day

Hey Everyone

Happy World Card Making Day! The challenge at Our Creative Corner this week is to create a project inspired by a country other than our own.  I’ve chosen France because when I think of anything french two things come to mind – elegance and vintage.  For the layout I used the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 as it felt very elegant too.  Instead of the oval shape, I’ve used a rectangle shape as it gave me a chance to use my Notably Ornate stamp set again.

This is what I came up with:

I made the Stampers Showcase at Stamping 411.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets: Established Elegance, Artistic Etchings, Notably Ornate
Other Products: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired), Antique Brad, Circle Punches

Stamping 411 Challenge #220

Hey Again

Another challenge I’m entering tonight is one that I’ve just come across whilst cruising around the web – Stamping 411 Challenge.

This card started out completely different from how it ended.  Does that happen to anyone else out there?  My original card had colour, but then I ended up going with my safe colours – Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  To this I added some Love Letter DPS (which has just retired) and then added my stamp set of the month – Artistic Etchings.

This card Made the Showcase at Stamping 411.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Love Letter DSP (retired), Newsprint DSP (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon
Stamp Sets: Artistic Etchings, French Foliage
Other Products: Brads, Black Satin Ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, Circle Punch
