Just Add Ink #195

Hey Everyone

Nikki has given us a soft and pretty colour combo this week at Just Add Ink.

I sometimes struggle with combing more than two colours but somehow this card just came together.  I’ve been practising using a lot of white on my cards and I felt that by keeping white as my main colour, I could then add smidges of Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Soft Skye and So Saffron.

Come and join us with this lovely colour combo at Just Add Ink – head over to the challenge and have a look at the inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardabilities #88

Hey Everyone

I found this weeks Cardabilities sketch really interesting and thought it was a great opportunity for me to use Stampin’ Up!s Santa’s List again before I put it away until next year.

I love the little tab at the top of the main panel as it works so well with my sentiment and  I love all the vintagey background stamping.  This sketch also screamed seam binding bow at me – any chance for me to use a scrunchy seam binding bow and I’ll slap one on!  The designer series paper I’ve used is from a Stampin’ Up! pack called Etcetera. It’s not a Christmas pack, but I think the green stripe looks Christmasy. Here’s my card:

Stampin’ Royalty #203 & The Deconstructed Sketch #128

Hey Everyone

Do you ever make a card that comes together really easy and that you feel really happy about?  This happened to me with this card.  Although my photo doesn’t really show the brightness of the Coastal Cabana DSP – it looks prettier in real life.

SR203 & DS128

The colours for my card where from taken from this weeks inspiration picture at Stampin’ Royalty.  I’m so in love with this colour combo!  I dug up some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP called Spice Cake and teamed it with some current Stampin’ Up! DSP called Aftrnoon Picnic.  The fabulous layout for my card came from this weeks sketch over at The Deconstructed Sketch.  Here are their inspiration pics:
