Mojo Monday#341 & Inspired by Stamping #81

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card and this one I’m sharing is for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.  Here are their inspiration pics:

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve used Early Espresso.  It was once my go-to colour but Sahara Sand has taken over that role now.  I love this new little matching flower stamp set and punch from Stampin’ Up! called Petite Petals – it takes no time at all to whip up a card.

Mojo Monday #331 & Dynamic Duos #89

Hey Everyone

I love the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Dynamic Duos this week, so I decided to combine them.

I really need to get myself a new Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride ink pad and some designer series papers as it’s a colour that I absolutely love.  I used about the only scrap I had from a retired stack that I found and combined it with some Pistachio Pudding designer series paper.  The stamp sets I’ve used are Everything Eleanor, Papaya Collage, Dictionary and the sentiment is from Simply Sketched.  The ribbon I’ve used is also a retired Stampin’ Up one.  Here’s my card:

Stampin’ Royalty #210 & The Deconstructed Sketch #134

Hey Everyone

I said I wasn’t going to get out to my craft room until the weekend but it got the better of me and I decided to head out there first thing this morning.  I figured how hot could it be at 8.30am???  Let me tell you it was extremely hot – 36°C.  It’s going to hit 44°C before the change comes through at about 8pm tonight – I can’t wait!  Although I shouldn’t be sooking – it’s not like I’m one of the tennis players playing in the Australian Open at the moment.  I can’t believe they’re still playing in the heat!

I’ve combined challenges for my card – inspiration picture at Stampin’ Royalty and the sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch.

Pals Paper Arts #177

Hey Everyone

Pals Paper Arts has a sketch for us this week to create our cards.  Nicole has created this fabulous sketch for us:

I started off with way different colours than what I finished up with, but I think these colours works – jury’s still out on this card.  Here’s what I came up with:

Dynamic Duos #68, SU Only Challenges #78 & Cardabilities #81

Hey Everyone

I made this card earlier but have only just had a chance to post it now as we’ve just been out for a lovely Father’s Day dinner.  The challenges I’m entering my card into are the colour challenge at Dynamic Duos, SU Only Challenge where their challenge is to create a projecting with Ribbons & Bows and the layout is from the sketch challenge at Cardabilities.

I’ve gone for another feminine florally card using Morning Meadow and Summer Silhouettes.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  My Perfect Plum ribbon is created by dyeing some Very Vanilla Seam Binding and the colour I’ve teamed with Perfect Plum is Pistachio Pudding.  Here’s my card:

Stampin’ Royalty #190 & Mojo Monday #307

Hey Everyone

I’ve changed my mind about Stampin’ Up!s new In-Colours from when I first saw them – I now love them and was really pleased when I saw the colour combo for this weeks Stampin’ Royalty Challenge – gotta love any colour challenged teamed with Crumb Cake!

SR190

I’ve teamed the colour challenge with this weeks interesting sketch over at Mojo Monday.  I was a little unsure about the triangle pieces in the corners of the sketch as none of the DSP I was combining was working for me today.  I decided to keep the triangles the same colour as the background DSP (Pistachio Pudding).  I’ve just used a different pattern and then distressed them a little so you can see I followed the sketch.

Mojo Monday #305 & Dynamic Duos #65

Hey Everyone

I’m later than usual with my entry for this weeks sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  But when I saw Julee’s sketch I had to play along – it’s so “me” with all it’s layers!

Mojo305Sketch

I found this gorgeous colour combination over at Dynamic Duos, so I combined both challenges to create my card:

I love dimension to my cards so I made some handmade roses cut with my 1 1/4 inch scallop circle punch.  I then made a scrunchy bow by dyeing some Very Vanilla Seam Binding with Pistachio Pudding ink – I haven’t dyed ribbon in a while but I love it when I can match my ribbon to my cardstock. Here’s my card:
