Sharing On A Sunday

This group of cards are such a mixed batch that I have no idea what else to call my blog post!

My first card is for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #37 and CR84FN18 to use yellow, orange and kraft. I really didn't think I would like these colours together, but they are so bright and funky! Love them! This is the CR84FN inspiration sketch, which I took the orange cupcakes idea from as well!


And this is my card...


Recipe:

Stamps: Frame It from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DSP, Haiku DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake all from SU

Accessories: Daffodil Delight Ribbon from SU, Square Nestabilities

My next one is for SC322 for the sketch and Farm Fresh Friday's Use Up Your Christmas Stash Challenge. The patterned paper I used on this card all comes from October Afternoon's Good Cheer pack which is a Christmas set - I deliberately chose the non-Christmassy sheets for this one!


Recipe:

Stamps: Me Time Anya from The Greeting Farm

Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze both from SU, Copics White, October Afternoon Good Cheer DSP

Inks: Cherry Cobbler from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Ribbon from stash, Frosted Lace Stickles

My next one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for March and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #131 to use Not Quite Navy, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. I am desperately trying to use up all my old SU DSP papers  and thought I could get away with this Baja Breeze sheet looking a bit doily-esque! What do you think?


Recipe:

Stamps: Delightful Doilies, Fillable Frames #10, Signature Greetings all from PTI

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Ski Slope DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Not Quite Navy, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze all from SU

Accessories: Medium Scallop Border Die, Delightful Doilies Die, Fillable Frames #10 Die all from SU, Buttons from stash, Embroidery Thread from stash, Baja Breeze Ribbon (retired) from SU

And my final card for today is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #58 to CASE either Danielle or Amanda (the 2 ladies who started this challenge blog, who are now both stepping down! Good Luck to them both!). I chose Danielle's card here from last week's challenge as I really loved her simple layout. I also used Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #61 to use Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand and Garden Green and for Free For All's Challenge #54 to be inspired by St Patrick's day and make a good luck card, use greens or leprechauns. I honestly didn't think I had any sort of shamrock anywhere but saw the good luck sentiment in this set and when I opened it, lo and behold, there was a little shamrock!


Recipe:

Stamps: So Happy For You from SU

Papers: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Spiced Cider DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green both from SU

Accessories: Circle Nestibilities, Eyelet Border Punch, Wild Wasabi Ribbon (retired) both from SU

And that's allf or today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
