A little bit behind...

I'm a bit late uploading my cards this week - no excuse this time. Just being lazy I guess! 

My first card is definately late for the challenge but I'm going to upload it anyways. It's for Sketch 'n' Color's #12 and old color combo CC184 from SCS using Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray and Always Artichoke. Not sure if you can see in the photo but I did saturate the scalloped circles with shimmer paint before fixing them all together.


Stamps: Circle Circus, Framed With Love

Papers: Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla

Inks: Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray, Always Artichoke

Accessories: Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Bird Punch (for the leaves), Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/4" circle Punch, Brad from stash, Platinum Shimmer Paint

My next one is yet another late one! It's for Farm Fresh Friday's Sketch challenge, Color Throwdown's # 93 to use Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Baja Breeze, Papertake Weekly's Say It With Flowers Challenge and for SCS' Free For All #13 to use buttons and bows.


Stamps: Miss Anya Collection

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze cs & DSP, Copic White cs, Sweet Always DSP

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Melon Mambo ribbon, Doily Lace MS Border Punch, Buttons from Papermania, Flower punch

Up next is another one that's not late for a change! Woot! It's for Our Creative Corner's Sketch #16 and old color combo CC148 from SCS top use Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana and Blue Bayou. This one was so quick to do.


Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly

Papers: Barely Banana, Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou cs & DSP

Inks: Wild Wasabi

Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" punch, Butterfly Punch (that's a lot of punches!), Crop-A-Dile (for the little circles on the flowers), Icicle Stickles

And my last card for this post is a nice bright, funky card for my friend Michelle who's a bit poorly at the minute! It's for Mojo #139 (late for that one!) and A Passion For Papertry's Favourite Colours Challenge. Now anyone that knows me knows my wardrobe consists of black, pink, black and a bit more pink! I do have other colours in there, just choose not to wear them very often! So I had to make a card using my fave PTI colour, Raspberry Fizz!


Stamps: Vintage Picnic (I ummed and ahhed over this set for ages and finally gave in and I LOVE it!)

Papers: Raspberry Fizz cs & DSP (PTI), Basic Black (SU), Copic White cs, Black & white DSP from Kaiser Craft

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Raspberry Fizz Button, Black Embroidery Thread, Ribbon from stash
