The Paper Players Challenge #77 & Create with Connie & Mary #183

Hey Everyone

All you need is love is the theme this week at The Paper Players Challenge.  I am so singing the song in my head right now.  My card isn’t necessarily a Valentine’s Day card, but a card you could give to someone to let them know you are thinking of them and that you care.  My card is also made with the challenge colours at Create with Connie & Mary this week.

Here’s my card:

CASE Study Challenge #56

Hey Everyone

My second card tonight is for the CASE Study Challenge.  This months muse, Julie Lacey, has a gorgeous card style and uses colours that I struggle to put together.  I’ve used similar colours that Julie has used and kept the embellishing and layering to a minimum (which is unusual for me!).  This is her card that we used for inspiration.

And this is what I came up with.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Sets:Nature Walk, Sincere Salutations
Other Products: Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Button, Nestabilities, Basic Pearls, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Linen Thread

CASE Study Challenge #54

Hey Everyone

This is my 6th & final post today – I think my brain may be slightly fried. My final card tonight is for the CASE Study Challenge.  For the final week of their anniversary month, our challenge is to create a card with our “signature style”.  As I tend to get a lot of comments about my “monochromatic” card style – I figured this is my signature style and whipped up a card with those tones.

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Stamp Sets: Nature Walk, Vintage Vogue
Other Products: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Buttons
