Mojo Monday Challenge #223

Hey Everyone

Gee it’s nice being on holidays and being able to enter a challenge during the week rather than trying to complete it in a hurry on the weekend.  I could really get used to this life – maybe a tattslotto win could keep me at home and in my craft room!

This is the sketch at Mojo Monday this week:

Here’s my card:

Create with Connie & Mary #182

Hey Everyone

I’ve used an unused until now stamp set called Charming for the this weeks sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.   I love a background script stamp and also a flower stamp, so this set is perfect for me.  I’ve used my Pool Party & Basic Black markers to colour in the flower and then painstakingly cut it out (almost cut it in half twice!)- I was going to raise it up, but as the stems are so fine it didn’t work very well.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand DSP, Pool Party DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Sahara Sand
Stamp Sets: Charming, Occasional Quotes (retired), Kindness Matters

Pals Paper Arts #125 – Tag, You’re It!

Hey Everyone

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Can’t believe it’s come and gone and I’m thinking about New Year’s Eve already.  I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and create a couple of cards for challenges.  My first card tonight is for the “Tag You’re It” Challenge at Pals Paper Arts.  My initial thought was that I was going to make a Christmas tag, but in the end I went with a vintagey card as it feels I haven’t used Established Elegance in ages.

Here’s what I came up with:

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP, Crumb Cake DSP, Soft Suede
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake Marker

CASE Study Challenge #63

Good Evening Everyone

This card is for this weeks challenge at CASE Study Challenge.  Niki Estes has been October’s muse and I have loved every one of her cards.  This is her card below:

My layout is similar but I decided to go with more neutral colours as I am giving my card to someone special who has recently lost a family member.  I’m not a big fan of “with sympathy” worded cards , so I wanted mine to say “thinking of you” instead.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Love Letter DSP (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Gray
Stamp Sets: Sense of Time, Creative Elements, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Kindness Matters
Other Products: Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Antique Brad, Word Window, Basic Pearls, Circle Scissor
