Just a couple more....

I managed to get just a few more cards done yesterday, but never got round to taking photos of them, so here they are!

My first card is for Mercy's Sketch #69 and for 2 SCS challenges - the color challenge #266  to use Blush Blossom, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral with a dessert option of Close To Cocoa or Creamy Caramel - I did Close To Close as I thought it went nicer with the other colours. And the other challenge is Free For All #8 which was to use the Out of the Box technique and embossing. I have never used this technique with nestabilities before and it took me 3 attempts before I got it how I wanted it, but doesn't she look cute?


Stamps: Madelynn from The Greeting Farm

Papers: Blush Blossom, Ruby Red, Close To Cocoa, Non SU white, Kaleidoscope DSP

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos

Accessories: Daisy Pattern Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Oval Nestabilities, Bronze brad, Boho Blossoms Punch

My next card is for Farm Fresh Friday's sketch challenge, Just Us Girls #29 to use pink, lavender and green and for Sweet Stamping's #22 to use stitching - I cheated and did some faux stitching instead. 


Stamps: Ebony from The Greeting Farm, Signature Greetings from PTI, Stitches from Hot Off The Press

Papers: Pink Passion (SU), Lavender Moon (PTI), Non SU/PTI white, DSP from Crate Paper

Inks: Memento tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos

Accessories: Lavender Moon ribbon (PTI), button from stash

And my final card for today uses SCS SC276 and Stacey's Curtain Call #26 to use Whisper White, Basic Gray, Going Gray and Crushed Curry. I also thought I'd enter it for Papertake's Weekly Challenge Cutie Pie as I thought Tilda just looked so cute sitting there holding her bee in her matching jumper hehe!!!


Stamps: Tilda with bee, Flower Beehive from Magnolia, Polka Dot Basics from PTI

Papers: Crushed Curry, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Non SU/PTI white cs, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

Inks: Basic Gray, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos

Accessories: Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon, Treading Water Border punch from Fiskars

I've got a lot of swaps to do this week for a SU event I'm going to on Sunday next weekend, which should be loads of fun, so will try and get some challenges done during the week as well.

Happy stamping!
