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.

Create with Connie & Mary #262 & Deconstructed Sketch #112

Hey Everyone

The design team at Create with Connie & Mary have a colour challenge that is new to me and luckily I received another Stampin’ Up! delivery today so I was able to join with my new Bermuda Bay ink.

The layout for my card is for the sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch.  Love the layers on this sketch, so I’ll be using this one again.

I don’t have any Bermuda Bay designer series paper as yet (wish I could order the whole catalogue at once, then I would have so many choices at hand) so I created my own by swiping my ink pad over the de-bossed side of the spotted embossing folder and then ran some Very Vanilla cardstock through my big shot.  The Smoky Slate DSP is from Eastern Elegance and the Basic Black DSP is from Modern Medley.  Here’s what I came up with:

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.
