Just a few more from Sunday

I didn't get chance to photograph these ones on Sunday as we had to dash out the door to go and buy a new power pack for my BF's PC that died on Thursday and then when we got back I had to mark 30 writing papers from the SATs tests we did last week and I completely forgot about my cards, so here they are now...

This first one took me almost 2 hours! I watched the whole of The Faculty making it - love that film!! When I saw the sketch for Waltzing Mouse sketch #30 I instantly thought of quilting and that's where the stitching comes in, but I only have embroidery thread in the colour I wanted to use which were the colours from Just Us Girls #67 to use aqua, coral and green so I had to pierce and hand stitch every piece - it took forever! I'm not the best sewer in the world as you can see, but I do like the effect.


Stamps: Punch Bunch SAB set from SU

Papers: Aqua Mist from PTI, Cameo Coral (retired), Whisper White from SU, Lemonade DSP from Basic Gray

Inks: Cameo Coral (retired), SU Markers in Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz all from SU

Accessories: Aqua rickrack from stash, Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch both from SU, Embroidery thread from stash

My next card uses the colour from CR84FN10 to use red, kraft and brown. I love this combo and here's the inspiration picture for you.

This card is also for Our Creative Corner's sketch challenge and for Just Magnolia's #89 to include your favourite things. My fave crafting accessory is definitely ribbon, followed closely by dies, which I've used a few of on here today. I also love springtime, when the flowers are just blooming. I especially love seeing all the tulips growing in the back garden and on the roadsides so I used my Tilda with Tulips to represent my springtime love!


Stamps: Tilda with Tulips from Magnolia, Mega Mixed Messages from PTI

Papers: Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip all from SU, Copics White, DSP from Basic Gray

Inks: Chocolate Chip ink and marker from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Theatre ribbon pack (retired) from SU, Oval Nestabilities, Tilda Old Victorian Lace die from Magnolia, Sizzix Vine die, Flowers from stash, Red Zoomz (like Dew Drops), Victorian Fleur Embossing Folder from Papermania, Modern Label Punch from SU

And my final card is for Farm Fresh Friday's colour challenge to use black, turquoise and one other colour of your own choice. Of course I had to add pink! I also used the sketch from Sweet Sunday's Sketch Challenge #100.


Stamps: Savannah from The Greeting Farm, Flourishes from PTI

Papers: Pink Passion (retired), Basic Black both from SU, Copics White cs, DSP from Daisy Bucket

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Pink Passion (retired), Tempting Turquoise both from SU

Accessories: Medium Scallop Border Die from PTI, Circle Netabilities, ribbon from stash (possibly Taylored Expressions but not sure).

And that's all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
