These are other cards I did this weekend and looking back at them they either have pink or orange in them. I'm not a particular user of orange unless I'm doing Hallowe'en cards, but I do like these colour combo challenges!
This first one is for A Passion For Papertrey's Chippy Chip Chip challenge to use chipboard (nearly missed this one!), for Papertrey Peeps #7 to be inspired by a photo on the A Creative Mint website. I used this photo here for my colour combo. I also used Our Creative Corner's Sketch #19 for my layout.
I had to open a full pack of Stampin' Up chipboard for this challenge and wasn't majorly successful at using it either - that might explain why it was still unopened! I tried colouring the flower pieces with my copics but the colours weren't the shade I wanted (why isn't chipboard white?!!), so I tried to cover 2 pieces with DSP and while they are ok, they don't look quite how I wanted. I think I might invest in some of those acrylic paint dabbers so I can actually use my chipboard for once! Anyway on to the card...
Stamps: Everyday Classics from PTI
Papers: Stampers Select White cs, Hibiscus Burst, Pretty Pastels DSP, Bitty Dot Basics DSP
Inks: Copics, Hibiscus Burst
Accessories: On Board Batch of Blooms (SU), Lemon Pearls from stash, 1" circle punch, Circle Nestabilities, Lemon Tart grosgrain (I have fallen in love with this colour - it's so pretty. I only have a small bit of ribbon from Steph left and need some more!)
My next card is an orange one this time and is for Just Add Ink's #21 for the sketch, Curtain Call #34 to use Sahara Sand, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Basic Gray & Dusty Durango and for Sweet Stampin's #30 to use doodling, which I did round the edges of the circle and the scallops.
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Papers: Dusty Durango, Sahara Sand (why don't I use this colour more often, it's lovely as a neutral), Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Inks: Basic Gray ink & marker, Sahara Sand marker, Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry (both coloured with ink pads & blender pens)
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Rich Razzleberry & Dusty Durango polka dot ribbons
My next pink card is for Farm Fresh Friday's sketch and for SCS' Free For All #14 to be inspired by a collection other than crafting stuff. I have many collections other than stamping stuff including shoes and handbags (to be honest what woman doesn't collect those?!), books (I think I could probably start my own library!), supernatural stuff (DVDs, books, T-shirts, figurines etc, but not the crap Twilight series!) and fairies (which I suppose could come under my supernatural theme. I especially love Rock Hard Fairies and those by Jasmine Becket-Griffith). I also have a passion for anything in pink and black and most of wardrobe consists of those colours! So this card combines my colour passion with my love of fairies.
Stamps: Flutterby Anya from The Greeting Farm, Birthday Surprise from Verve
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Copic White cs, Pink DSP from Sending Love Speciality, Striped DSP from KaiserCraft
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, White velour ric rac, Primas, Black brad from Papermania, Diamond Stickles
And my final orange card is for Color Throwdown's #96 to use So Saffron, Cool Caribbean and Pumpkin Pie and I used old Mojo sketch #29 for the layout. I only have a little bit of DSP in Cool Caribbean as I didn't even do stamping when that year's in-colors were out, so I have to be very frugal with it LOL
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Papers: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Petals & Paisleys DSP
Inks: Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Butterfly Punch, Glitter Glue, Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Sizzix Flowers, Vines and Flourishes Set
And that's all for today folks. I've got a busy week at work next week, finishing off those end of year reports so will be doing loads of crafting at the weekend to make up for it!
