Pals Paper Arts #178 & Mojo Monday #318

Hey Everyone

I’ve finally had a chance to enter a challenge! I’ve had a bit of a busy couple of weeks and haven’t had much of a chance to play…..until this afternoon.  The card I’m sharing today is for two challenges actually – the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  Here are their inspiration pics:

Not a colour combo I’ve tried before.  In the past colour challenges like these used to frighten me off, but now I look forward to giving them a try.  I used to call myself a “neutrals girl only” and even though I do love my neutrals, I think I can confidently add colour to them now! Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday Challenge #300 & The Paper Players Challenge #152

Hey Everyone

Mojo Monday is having their 300th sketch challenge.  Julee’s sketch is one that I related to straight away as it suited my over-layered card style.

I don’t get to play along with the challenges at The Paper Players as often as I used too. But as I had a day off work today I was able to create a card to enter into their challenge before it closes.  The very talented LeAnne has a given us a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.  I’ve gone with Birthday, Yellow and Ribbon.

I was never a yellow fan until Summer Starfruit came along and now find it an easy colour to work with.  I’ve used some of my new Stampin’ Up! designer series paper called Soho Subway and some retired DSP called First Edition.  I’ve teamed them with a new Stampin’ Up! colour called Smoky Slate – a colour that I found I love combined with Summer Starfruit.  Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #171

Hey Everyone

Mae has given us this great sketch at Just Add Ink this week:

I’ve been hanging to use my new Stampin’ Up! goodies, so that’s what I did! The designer series papers I’ve used is called Soho Subway DSP and I’ve combined this with Baked Brown Sugar cardstock – a 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! In Colour.  I’ve stamped En Francais with Baked Brown Sugar ink as I think the script matches the font of my sentiment from Blooming with Kindness.  Here’s my card:
