Hey Everyone

It’s Monday, so that means another fabulous sketch for you to create a Christmas card at Merry Monday.

I had these retired Stampin’ Up! papers – Cottage Wall DSP & Nursery Nest DSP – on my desk so it was easy for me to throw them together on my card. Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #88

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Jen Mitchell is this weeks hostess and she has designed this fabulous sketch.

FMS88sketch

Jen is so talented and creates cards that I can pick from a mile off – she has the most beautiful clean style that I swoon over.

I love creating flowery cards but lately I’ve been thinking I’ve been overloading you with them. So, I decided to use a neglected Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Hearts A Flutter that has never seen ink.  I’ve teamed this stamp set with some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP called Nursery Nest.

Freshly Made Sketches #84

Hey Everyone

Another Wednesday is here so that means a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Linda Saurez is our hostess. Here’s her great sketch that at the start had me thinking…

FMS84sketch

In my effort to try and mix up my cards so that I’m not always creating feminine florally ones, I decided to make a baby card.  I felt that Linda’s sketch was the perfect choice for to create one. The designer series paper I’ve used is a from a retired Stampin’ Up! pack called Nursery Nest.  The card base is Elegant Eggplant and I’ve teamed this with a bit of colouring with Pear Pizzazz ink on the babies toys.  The stamp sets I’ve used are retired Stampin’ Up! ones called Favourite Teddy,  Best Yet and A New Little Someone.

Just Add Ink #159

Hey Everyone

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge was suggested by the talented Kim.  Our challenge for you is to:

Just Add…….A Bunny

Now, you can create any project as long as you add a bunny.  I don’t actually give out Easter Cards so I created a baby card for this challenge.

We are given our challenges in advance so I knew this challenge was coming up – do you think I thought about ordering a stamp set with a bunny in it so it would get here in time?  No, I forgot until last week so I’ve been stalking the postman.  A box arrived and before I could open it, my husband told me it wasn’t mine.  It belonged to someone else in our small court of 24 houses.  Imagine my surprise, when I went to deliver her box, that I found there’s another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator living in the same court!  Stampin’ Up! demos are so supportive of each other – she offered to lend me her Everyday Bunny stamp set without even knowing me! I thanked her but said mine would probably arrive the next day. It didn’t 😦  Instead of bugging her, I asked my sister-in-law Jules if I could borrow a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set I knew she had called A New Little Someone. I just love this bunny in this set.

Here’s what I came up with:

Pals Paper Arts #155 & Stampin’ Royalty #168

Hey Everyone

Pals Paper Arts have a fabulous sketch for us that was designed by their Sketch Queen Margaret Moody. This sketch caters to my over-layered style of cardmaking – I think Margaret may’ve designed it just for me! 🙂

The design team at Stampin’ Royalty have the following inspiration pic for this weeks challenge.  I just love these soft pretty colours together and couldn’t wait to play along.

SR168pic

I ummed and ahhed about having two flowers on my card. I wasn’t sure if they looked too busy, but in the end I decided that with this much layers on my card, what would it hurt if I had one too many flowers on there!  Here’s my card:

Dynamic Duos #15 & Freshly Made Sketches #47

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing with you today is for two challenges (and they would have to be two of my favourite challenges!).

This week at Dynamic Duos the colour challenge is to use the following subtle colours – Certainly Celery and Pretty In Pink.

And I really liked Jennifer’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, so my card is designed from this sketch:

Here’s my card:
