...And Cards With Old Stamps

The next few cards are made with some oldie stamp sets. See this post for some of my new stamps!

The first card is for Mojo137 and CC269 to use Lovely Lilac, Gable Green and Cameo Coral. I tried to use as little Cameo Coral as possible as it's one of those colours I just cannot work with at all! And now I think there's a bit too much Lovely Lilac instead LOL


Stamps: Floral Symphony, Birthday Surprise, Beautiful Kindness all from Verve Stamps

Papers: Cameo Coral, Gable Green, Whisper White, Lovely Lilac DSP, Pink Flamingo DSP

Inks: Lovely Lilac, Gable Green and Cameo Coral

Accessories: Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Paper Piercer and mat, Green flower brads from Papermania

My next card uses Best Wishes & More, which is a great set for a range of occasions, but I especially love the flower in it.This one uses Mercy's Sketch #72 and the color combo from Just Add Ink's #16 to use Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red and So Saffron. I love this color combo!


Stamps: Best Wishes & More, Well Scripted

Papers: Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink cs & DSP, Ruby Red, Whisper White

Inks: Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, So Saffron

Accessories: So Saffron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder

And my final project is one I have been working on and off with for a couple of weeks now and thought I'd finish it up for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #18 - Anything But A Card, although I have now decided to add a bit more to the insides as well!

I went to a Copics class a couple of weeks ago and the lady doing the class (Hello Louise!) showed us a folder she had made using the Copic colour charts. She also gave us all a copy of the charts, printed onto the Copic white cardstock as well, so I set about making my own! I have filled in all the Copics that I have so far and now know which Copic sketch markers to get next.

All the pages are different colours, related to the colours of the chart attached to them. Each page is also inked in the same colour ink as well and now I think I might add some image of some kind in the same range of colours to each page.

This is one of the pages on the inside and you can see why I want to add a bit more - it's a bit plain!


Stamps: Sweet Serenity wheel, Tilda With Sunflower

Papers: All pages have Basic Black mounts and Copic white cs, in order the pages are: Covers - Soft Suede, Real Red, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Close To Cocoa, Basic Gray, Rose Red

Inks: Same colours as above

Accessories: Sizzix Chocolatey Goodness Alphabet, Sizzix Vine, Flowers and Flourish set, Soft Suede and Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Bind It All

And that's all for today folks! Thanks for reading and happy stamping!
