Sharing some others on a Sunday

These are a few other, non flowery cards I made this weekend! I had a ton of fun making all these cards this weekend, but never managed to actually do the Easter gifts or make the new Kaisercraft set of drawers like I was going to do! LOL nevermind, another excuse for crafting during the week!

My first one is my fave card from this weekend - I love the colours and the prettiness of it! It's for Magnolia-Licious Challenge #5 to be inspired by a picture of pretty little Easter eggs, Just Magolia Challenge #99 to pick a line from their bingo board and use the items it says. Mine were the 3 diagonal squares from the top left and I had to use gems, flowers, lace and ribbon! I also used the colours from CC315  - Regal Rose, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz and these colours also fit the Pastels Challenge from Colour Create's #67.


Stamps: Tilda And Her Bunny from Magnolia, Mega Mixed Messages from PTI

Papers: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Junior Varsity DSP (retired), Sweet Always DSP (retired) all from SU, Copics white

Inks: Regal Rose from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Gems from Papermania, Pink roses from eBay, Yellow roses from Hobbycraft, Pear Pizzazz ribbon from SU, Lace from Cuddly Buddly

My next one is for TESC135 (yay Taylor has brought her sketches back and to SCS too!) and for Play Date Cafe's Challenge #74 to use turquoise/blue, purple and white. This is their inspiration photo...

And this is my card...


Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Background Basics: Petal Power both from PTI, Tiny Tags from SU

Papers: Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White all from SU, Turquoise DSP from Daisy Bucket, Flowered DSP from Kaisercraft (I think. I've cut the name off it and it was the last bit I had!)

Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant both from SU

Accessories: Butterfly Die from PTI, Buttons from stash, Tempting Turquoise ribbon (retired), Mini Tag punch, Scallop Edge Punch all from SU

My next one is for Walzting Mouse Sketch Challenge #40 and for CC30 to use Creamy Caramel and Bravo Burgundy. I wanted a more rustic look and I think these colours worked well!


Stamps: Victorian Frippery, Faux Fun Circles, Frame It all from Walzting Mouse Stamps

Papers: Creamy Caramel (retired), Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla all from SU

Inks: Creamy Caramel (retired), Bravo Burgundy both from SU

Accessories: Bravo Burgundy ribbon and buttons (both retired), Scallop Trim Border Punch all from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Embroidery Thread from stash

And my final card from this weekend is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #5 for March, Free For All #57 to be inspired by the sun, CC63 to use Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Orchid Opulence and Green Galore and for Farm Fresh Friday's Spring Break Challenge. We don't have Spring Break in the same way over here in the UK as in the USA. We generally get 2 weeks of slightly warmer weather, but nowhere near hot enough to go to the beach! The weather over here sucks at times LOL


Stamps: Rain, Snow or Shine from The Greeting Farm, Mat Stack 4 Collection from PTI (I think!)

Papers: Green Galore, Orchid Opulence, Rainbow Sherbet DSP, Washington Apple DSP (all retired) from SU, Copics White

Inks: Tempting Turquoise from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch all from SU, Brads from stash, Ribbon from stash

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