A few SUO cards

I have a SU workshop next for a lovely group of ladies and thought I'd better make a few samples for it. And as always I incorporated a few challenges too!

My first card is for Waltzing Mouse Stamps Sketch Challenge #42 and CR84FN23 to use light pink, black and cream - one of my fave combos! I found this tutorial through another blog using the owl punch to make this gorgeous rose - what a fab idea! And for a change I made a DL sized card - can't remember the last time I made one this size!


Stamps: Style Beautiful, Curly Cute both from SU

Papers: Pretty in Pink Textured, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Lap of Luxury DSP all from SU

Inks: Basic Black, Pretty in Pink

Accessories: Owl Punch, Crimper, Scallop Circle Punch all from SU, Diamond Stickles - oops not SUO then!

My next one is for CC51. I wanted to make one of these tulip cards using the wing from the bird punch as I've never done one, so just made a quick little 4 inch square card!


Stamps: Trendy Trees from SU

Papers: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant DSP from Regals Pack all from SU

Inks: Old Olive from SU

Accessories: Very Vanilla Tafetta Ribbon, Bird Punch both from SU

And my final card for today is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #63 to use the given photo as inspiration. I took the colours from it and used red, yellow and green. The sketch is from Sweet Sunday's Challenge #112 as well.


Stamps: Cottage Garden from SU

Papers: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Sunny Garden DSP all from SU

Inks: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz all from SU

Accessories: Oval Punches, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Pear Pizzazz Ribbon, Bitty Buttons and punch

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