Sharing on a Sunday

Just a handful of cards I made today.

This first one was quick and simple! It was for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #44 and CR84FN25 to use red, aqua and white. I so need to get some more Waltzing Mouse Stamps as I only have 3 sets and constantly have to use the same ones over and over for these sketches. It's payday in a few days so guess what I'll be doing Thursday morning?!

This is the gorgeous inspriation swatch from CR84FN...

And here's my card...


Stamps: Victorian Frippery from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red both from SU

Accessories: Riding Hood Red ribbon (retired), Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder both from SU, Fancy Labels Nestabilities, Mermaid's Tears Zoomz from Stamp Galaxy (like Dew Drops)

My next card is for Just Magnolia Challenge #103 for the sketch and Colour Create's Challenge #69 to use pink, blue and brown. I used another pack of gorgeous papers from my stash that I've hardly touched!


Stamps: Just The Ticket, Delightful Doilies both from PTI, Beautiful Tilda from Magnolia

Papers: Bashful Blue, Soft Suede both from SU, Copics White, Capella Paper Pack from Basic Grey

Inks: Bashful Blue, Soft Suede both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Delightful Doilies Die, Just The Ticket Border Die both from PTI, Lace from Stash, White Rose from Magnolia, Blue Roses from eBay, Frosted Lace Stickles

My next card is for Sweet Sunday's Sketch Challenge #114 and old CC52B to use Basic Black, Handsome Hunter, Bashful Blue and Regal Rose.


Stamps: Four Of A Kind, Fillable Frames #9 both from PTI

Papers: Handsome Hunter (retired), Basic Black, Regal Rose, Bashful Blue, Sweet Always DSP (retired) all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Handsome Hunter (retired), Bashful Blue, Regal Rose all from SU

Accessories: Bashful Blue ribbon (retired), Beautiful Wings Embosslit both from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Candyfloss Zoomz from Stamp Galaxy (like Dew Drops)

My final card for today is for Paper Pal Arts Challenge #90 for the sketch, Just Add Ink's Challenge #65 to Just Add Friendship and Totally Hues #6 to use Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse and Raspberry Fizz. I had to do a few ink subs on this one as I haven't got all the PTI inks and my Aqua Mist was binned last week as it was so dry nothing was coming out and I haven't got the reinker. I'm still desperately waiting for PTI to bring out their reformulated inks, so have to use similar SU colours for now. I did add a vellum sentiment strip to this one, but the sentiment didn't show up too well, so I had to put it on some card - I will one day get my vellum to work the way I want it to!


Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Friends 'Til the End both from PTI

Papers: Simply Chartreuse, Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz, Stampers Select White all from PTI, Vellum Paper from SU

Inks: Raspberry Fizz from PTI (this one is running out now as well), Kiwi Kiss, Soft Sky, Barely Banana (all retired) all from SU, Versamark

Accessories: Sunshine Impression Plate from PTI, Clear Embossing Powder from SU

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