More pink cards

With the charity card drive over on Splitcoast Stampers to help raise money for the MD Anderson Cancer Center so many of my cards have pink in them as stated mostly in the challenge write ups. But pink is one of my fave colours so I'm not complaining!

My first card today is for the October In Love With Stamping limited supplies challenge, in which we were not allowed to stamp on cardstock, so I used vellum instead and came up with this card in the technique style that Nichole Heady has shown before on her blog here. This is also for Papertrey Peeps Challenge #18 to use pink and for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge #23 to use stitching in some form on your card. I used my Sew Easy with the scallop head and then cut round it afterwards. Just adds such a nice edge to it don't you think?!


Stamps: In Bloom from PTI

Papers: Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz both from PTI, Vellum cardstock from SU

Inks: Versamark, Raspberry Fizz from PTI, Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Raspberry Fizz buttons from PTI, Sew Easy from We Are Memory Makers, Black Embroidery Thread from stash

My next card is for Stampin' Royalty's challenge #43 for the sketch, CC294 to use Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake and for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #26 to use birds on a card.


Stamps: Bird On A Branch

Papers: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze cs and DSP (retired), Ski Slope DSP (retired)

Inks: Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride

Accessories: Linen Impressions Plate from PTI, Oval Nestabilities, Beaded Oval Nestabilities, Bird Punch from SU, Boho Blossoms Punch from SU, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Mini Brads from Papermania

My next card is completely not my normal style, but sometimes it's fun to do so! This one is for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #19 to make a card for a little girl using either the given pictures as inspiration or memories of your own childhood toys. Like most little girls I think, I had a teapot set and remember regularly having tea with my teddies, Big Ted and Little Ted (named after the teds on Playschool for those of you that remember that TV show over here in the UK). I used the layout from Mojo #162 as well.


Stamps: Tea For Two from PTI (I don't actually have this set but stamped some images when I went to my friend Amy's back in August and hadn't used them at all so they can in very handy for this challenge!)

Papers: Rich Razzleberry cs and DSP (retired), Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Welcome Neighbor DSP, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Pretty in Pink ink and marker, Pear Pizzazz marker, Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Black

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Pretty in Pink satin ribbon both from SU, Black brads from stash, Martha Stewart lace tag (inked in Basic Black! I said I would use them and I finally did!)

My next two cards are both for Tilda challenges - I'm getting quite back into my Tildas again now and love all the new designs they keep coming up with (shame my bank balance doesn't agree ) This first one is for Totally Tilda's challenge #8 to use pink and pearls. Instead of the usual pearls I went with LOTS of Liquid Pearls in the style of Sankari Wegman and love this look. I used my piercing mat to add pencil dots to the papers so my pearls would be evenly spaced and I really love how it turned out! This is also for SC304, CC72 to use Cool Caribbean (which I subbed with Soft Sky), Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery and for Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #24 to use an image of a girl and use pink!


Stamps: Tilda With Peony from Magnolia

Papers: Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, Copic White, Pretty in Pink DSP from retired hostess pack

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Perfect Paisley Embossing Folder, Pastel Raspberry and White Opal Liquid Pearls

And my final card is for Just Magnolia's #79 for the sketch, the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #12 to make a birthday card using paper piecing, for Free For All #36 which was also to use paper piecing and for Just Us Girls #57 to make a fabric flower. I don't actually own any fabric (and I certainly wasn't going to cut up some old clothes just for this challenge, so I used felt instead!)


Stamps: Tilda with Christmas Presents (cunningly disguised as a party goer delivering lots of pressies!), Just The Ticket (another one stamped from Amy but on its way to me as we speak!)

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, Copic White, Vintage Cream from PTI, Melon Mambo DSP (retired)

Inks: Melon Mambo, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Felt from Hobbycraft, Brads from stash, Black ribbon from stash, Ticket Die from PTI, Flower, Vine and Flourish die set from Sizzix
