Freshly Made Sketches #89

Hey Everyone

Wow can you believe it’s Wednesday already?  This means we have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for you to try.  Rita is this weeks sketch hostess and here’s the sketch she’s designed for us:

Isn’t this a fabulous sketch?  You’ve outdone yourself with this one Rita! I totally love it! Calypso Coral is a colour that I forget to use, so I decided it was time to give it a run. When I saw the large panel on the front I instantly thought of a stamp set I received when I recently attended the South Pacific Stampin’ Up! Convention in Brisbane called Hello, Lovely.  I’ve gone with quite a dramatic background by stamping the pretty square images in Black Stazon and punching them out with my smallest square punch (can’t remember the size!). I then tried to soften all that black by adding one of my favourite flower stamps from Everything Eleanor and added some leaves from Summer Silhouettes.  It didn’t take me too long to get back to my flowery cards! lol

Here’s what I came up with:

Head off to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.  We’d love for you to join us, so why don’t you create a card and link it up?

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is combined for two challenges – Mojo Monday and Create with Connie & Mary.

I think I’ve forgotten about Pool Party somewhere along the line and I seem to have run out of all my Pool Party DSP except for this retired piece from Spice Cake DSP. Here’s my card:

Paper Players Challenge #103

Hey Everyone

Check out the colour combination Anne Marie has come up with this week over at The Paper Players!

These colours are so pretty and soft together, aren’t they? I might have to use them again – thanks for the inspiration Anne Marie!  My layout for my card was inspired by an old Pals Paper Parts sketch and then as I normally do – I changed it up a bit.  I’m hanging out for our new Stampin’ Up! catalogue so I can buy myself some new flowery sets.  Until it comes I’ve decided I’m going to revisit some old stamp sets that have been neglected in my cupboard.  Upsy Daisy is one of those stamp sets that hasn’t stayed on my desk (where my favourites live).  I  don’t think I’ve used it much at all over the last 2 years.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mojo Monday #222

Hey Everyone

So this is my first official day of leave and I was wide awake at 6.30am.  I don’t even get up this early on a work day!  Not sure what’s going on there – maybe my mind was wanting me up early to enter Mojo Monday early in the week for once!  This is their sketch this week:

Here’s my card:
