Colour Q Challenge #105 & Create with Connie & Mary #170

Hey Everyone

I’m combing two challenges with my next card – the colour combo at Colour Q Challenge and the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.

What do you do when your order didn’t arrive when you expected it to, and you don’t have your new DSP you thought was coming?  Make your own DSP with a background stamp. The flourish from my new favourite set of the moment – Established Elegance – came in really handy and finished off my card for me.

This card was awarded a Top Pick at Create with Connie & Mary.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.

CASE Study Challenge #49

Hey Everyone

I found my Little Leaves Die! – I thought it was gone forever and was about to buy another one.  I’ve been looking for it for about 2 weeks and I eventually found it where it was supposed to be (not sure how that happened!).

Anyway back to the real reason I’m here.  The card below was made by Dawn Woleslage for CASE Study Challenge.  We get to CASE her cards for the month of July and put our own spin on them.

This is my entry for the week:

CASE Study Challenge 31

Hi All

Today I’ve decided to enter the CASE Challenge 31.  I’m a roll with challenges at the moment.  My son played footy today so I quickly came home, fed everyone and then sat down to whip up my card.

Every month there is a CASE study muse and this months muse is the very talented Julee – this is her card below that we use for inspiration.

This is my take on Julee’s card.

Thanks for stopping by

See ya
