Cards With Red In!

And these are my cards from this weekend with red in. Red's not normally a colour of choice for me unless I'm making Valentine's or Christmas cards, but all these challenges had red in, so here they all are.

My first is for last week's Stamp With Us colour challenge to use the picture on their blog as inspiration. I used red, lilac and yellow and white stripes for mine! I also used Mojo #49 for it as well.


Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes

Papers: Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun, Whisper White, Real Red, Bride DSP

Inks: Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun, Real Red

Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop Circle Punch

My next card is for Mojo #138, Just Us Girls #33 to use Red, White, Blue and Kraft and for Our Creative Corner's Masculine Birthday Challenge.


Stamps: Birthday Surprise from Verve

Papers: Brilliant Blue, Real Red cs & DSP, Kraft, Whisper White

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics

Accessories: D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder, White Brads

And my final card with red in is for Mercy's Sketch #73., Farm Fresh Friday's colour challenge to use cream (I used Very Vanilla), red and pink and for Just Add Ink's #17 to use one of the techniques shown on their blog hop (fab idea for a blog hop by the way!). I used Nicole's Embossing Resist technique on the panel in the middle using hearts to match Anya's dress but you can't really see them - just try to picture the rest of each heart that is hidden behind the other bits! Should have used smaller hearts!


Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts, Miss Anya Love Collection

Papers: Hibiscus Burst (PTI), Real Red cs & DSP, Very Vanilla

Inks: Hibiscus Burst, Versamark, Tuxedo Memento Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

And that's all for now folks! Next weekend is Splitcoast Stampers Virtual Stamp Night so a full packed weekend full of about 16 challenges. I'm hosting the first one on Saturday so be sure to come and check them all out!
