Retro Sketches #109

Hey Everyone

Have you noticed I’ve been a tad quiet on here lately?  I’m on a family holiday at the moment and I’ve been trying to find the time to take a photo of my cards – I’m really missing my light tent which is showing in my photos.  The card I’m sharing today is for Retro Sketches – take a look at their fabulous sketch.

My mum has been asking me to show her how I made Ranunculas (not sure if what I make is that close to the real ones, but I think it’s close enough).  When I saw Retro Sketches sketch I thought it would be perfect to show them off.  Here’s my card (‘cuse the photo!)

Freshly Made Sketches #128

Hey Everyone

This week at Freshly Made Sketches the fabulously talented and sweet Rita Wright is our sketch hostess.  Here’s her very versatile sketch:

Last week was my chance to make another man card for stash, this week I’ve reverted back to a feminine florally card.  The colour scheme for my card came from some off-cuts that I had sitting on my desk that I played around with until I was happy.  I’m pretty pleased with myself as I’ve managed to combine more than two colours!  The flowers I’ve used are from a Stampin’ Up! set called Simple Stems and the leaves I’ve used (like always) are from Summer Silhouettes.

Mojo Monday Challenge #336 & colourQ Challenge #232

Hey Everyone

I made this card for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday (I’ve just now realised the challenge has closed, but I was an issue last night with migrating my old macbook pro to my new one and I couldn’t access it for 15 hours!  I guess it’s a case of better late than never!) and the fabulous colour challenge at colourQ.

Love, love, love this colour combo!  I’ve used some old Stampin’ Up! DSPs – Urban Oasis DSP and First Edition DSP and the stamp sets I’ve used are Pleasant Poppies, Kindness Matters and my sentiment is from Happy Watercolour.

The Deconstructed Sketch #136 & colourQ #226

Hey Everyone

I just love Jen’s sketches from The Deconstructed Sketch as I think they fit my over-layered card style.  I’ve combined this sketch challenge with the colour challenge at colourQ.  Here are their inspiration pics:

I’ve gone with some really old Stampin’ Up! designer series paper that I had stashed away in my cupboard.  I found some Pink Pirouette DSP back from when you could buy a whole pack of one colour and the chevron DSP is from a retired pack called Urban Oasis. I’ve also added a bit of Fan Fair DSP in there.  The flower stamp I’ve used is a new one from a set called Happy Watercolor and the sentiment is from Blooming with Kindness.  Here’s my card:
