My first card is for Our Creative Corner's Sketch Challenge #12, Charisma Cardz Challenge #16 to use a quote and for SCS CC267 to use Basic Gray, Apricot Appeal and Sage Shadow. And straight away out came the Nouveau Chic DSP for this colour combo!!!
Stamps: Beautiful Kindness from Verve
Paper: Basic Gray, Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow, Non SU White cs (trying to use all my old stock up!), Nouveau Chic DSP
Inks: Basic Gray, Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow
Accessories: Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Circle Nestabilities, Corner Rounder Punch
My next card is for Crazy For Challenges #34 to CASE one of the DT's cards. I chose Lynda's card here - I just loved all the Kraft! I also used CC140 to use Purely Pomegranate, Kraft and White as well as the Free For All Challenge #5 to be inspired by your favourite musical. Can you guess which one mine is? CATS!!! I love it to bits! The soundtrack is one I frequently play in school and my class are starting to enjoy it as well now and I always use the poem, Macavity, when we do performance poetry and then play the DVD version so the children can see how it is really performed!
Stamps: Cat Plate 1 from Pink Cat Studio
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Kraft, Non SU white cs
Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Papermania clear gems, Paper Piercer and mat
My next card is for another Free For All Challenge, this time #9 to make a card inspired by a vacation or dream vacation. I would love, one day, to take a hot air balloon ride preferably over the Grand Canyon so just had to pull out my little hot air balloon stamps. I also used the sketch from Papertake Weekly's Challenge #39 and I used the color combo CC133 which was to use More Mustard, Old Olive and Bashful Blue. I made a 4 x 4 inch square card for this one - I'm loving this size at the minute!
Stamps: Everyday Button Bits from PTI
Paper: More Mustard cs & DSP, Bashful Blue, Old Olive DSP, Non SU white cs
Inks: More Mustard, Old Olive, Stampin' Pastels (I did do a light blue dusting for the sky but you can't tell in the photo at all.)
Accessories: Buttons in Bashful Blue, More Mustard & Old Olive, Paper Piercer and Mat
My next card is another PTI one using my new Turning A New Leaf set (Thank you Linda!). This one for quite a few challenges today: the color combo is for Color Throwdown's #89 to use Almost Amethyst, Sage Shadow and Bordering Blue. The sketch challenge is from Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #16. It is also for A Passion for Papertrey's Pretty Petals challenge and for Our Creative Corner's Blooming Blossoms challenge! And guess what I finally found in a bag under my bed?! My unopened Top Note Die along with a load of Rubbernecker stamps as well!! So glad I found it - I did start thinking that maybe my BF had accidentally thrown it out!
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Turning A New Leaf, Everyday Button Bits all from PTI
Paper: Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue, Non SU white, Tea Party DSP
Inks: Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue, Almost Amethyst
Accessories: Top Note Die!!, MS Cornice Border Punch, Purple Dew Drops, Fairytale Ribbons pack from SU (Retired)
And my final card for today I think is my fave of them all. It is for Just Add Ink Challenge #14 to Just Add Vintage, SC277 and CC180 to use Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa and Ruby Red. I think these colours together really do give this card that vintage feel as well as the stamps and wheel. This is about as vintage as I can get though! And before you ask, no SU don't do Ruby Red ribbon. I just dyed some of the Whisper White Taffeta ribbon with my Ruby Red ink pad. Fab isn't it?!
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage wheel
Paper: Ruby Red, Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa, Confetti White (I think this is a much softer white than Whisper White and works better with this colour combo I think)
Inks: Ruby Red, Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta (dyed with Ruby Red ink), Eyelet Border Punch
And that's all for now folks! I'm at a SU training event tomorrow all day, so will upload some photos of the day and the projects we make later on this week. I can't wait - the last one I went to was fab and I know this one will be too!
