Stampin' Up cards from this weekend

These are the cards I made this weekend, using Stampin' Up stamps. I do tend to use Stampin' Up cardstock and ink more than any other (Mainly because of all the colour challenges I do I think), but I do like the quality of it!

I love the bright colour combo for this first one, which I got from Color Throwdown's #95 to use Basic Black, tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Pink Passion. I used the sketch for SC282 and both Just Add Ink #20 and the June technique challenge on the In Love With Stamping forum were to use stitching and I actually got my needle and thread out for this one!


Recipe:

Stamps: Happy Everything, Live Your Dream

Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White, Rainbow Sherbet DSP (retired)

Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Stampin' Pastels, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories: Black and Pink Embroidery Thread from stash, Pink brads from stash

My next card is another sketch challenge from SCS, #281 this time and the inspiration challenge from In Love With Stamping. I used the colours for the inspiration and the swirls on the background of the bookmark and the flourish at the bottom.

And my final SU card is for the Stamp With Us Get well challenge, using the colours Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Night of Navy from Stacey's Curtain Call #33 and I used old Mojo #30 for the sketch.

  7. All 3 cards are lovely. The black panel just pops against those bold bright colours on the first card! I love how elegant the thanks card is and the get well card has such a soft, soothing colour combo!
