Sunday's Challenge Cards

This should be my last post this weekend and these are the last few challenges I've done. My aim for the summer holidays is to get all the color challenges from Splitcoast Stampers done and all of the Mojo sketch challenges too. I doubt I'll do them all but I'm going to give them a good go!

My first card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #40 to use Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Basic Black and Real red. I used old Mojo #67 for the layout too. I think there's a bit too much red on this card, so just have to make sure that whoever receives it likes red.


Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds (Hostess Level 2 set), Upsy Daisy

Papers: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Pink Flamingo DSP

Inks: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Tempting Turquoise, Redal Red

Accessories: Pearls from Lakeland, Black gingham ribbon

My next card is for a multitude of challenges: Farm Fresh Friday's Embroidery Thread Challenge, Papertake Weekly Cutie Patootie Challenge, Mojo #148, Free For All #20 to use something new (these are my new stamps) and CC280 to use Old Olive, Regal Rose and Peach Parfait, but I don't have any Peach Parfait yet so I subbed it with Apricot Appeal instead.


Stamps: Summer and sentiment from the Roll Call set by The Greeting Farm

Papers: Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Sweet Always DSP (retired), Tall Tales DSP, Copics White cs

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon, button from Elzybells, peachy embroidery thread, Circle Nestabilities

My 2 next cards are both for old SCS color challenges and old Mojo challenges. This first one is for Mojo #46 and CC194 to use Really Rust, Very Vanilla and Going Gray. I really struggled with the colour combo so made the Really Rust the dominant colour and am pleased with how it turned out in the end. I also didn't have any brads, buttons, card candy or dew drops in any of the colours so made my own by using my Crop-A-Dile to punch out some small circles and covered then with Crystal Effects so they shine!


Stamps: Beautiful Kindness from Verve Stamps

Papers:  Very Vanilla, Going Gray, Really Rust cs and DSP from hostess pack

Inks: Really Rust ink and marker, Going Gray marker

Accessories: Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, pearls from Lakeland, Circle Nestabilities, Crystal Effects

And my final card is for Mojo #63 and CC271 to use Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron. I didn't think I'd like this combo at first as I'm not particularly a fan of the Dusty Durango, but I love how this all came together so nicely.


Stamps: Petal Pizzazz (retired), Whimsical Words (SAB Retired)

Papers: So Saffron, Dusty Durango, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

Inks: Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron

Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder

And that's all my cards for this weekend. I'm hoping to do a bit of crafting during the week so will try to post again a little more often now I'm on holiday!
