Sharing on a Sunday

Just a few more cards from today's crafting time!

This first one is for Make It Monday's #13 which was to use a die and impression folder together to give a gap in the impression pattern. I used my In blooms impressions plate which is a gorgeous all over pattern. this is also for CR84FN27 which was to use bright pink, grey and cream. This is the colour inspiration piccy...


And here's my card. A bit darker than usual but I love the cream and pink against all that grey.


And here's a closer view of the embossing.



Recipe:

Stamps: Fillable Frames #1 and #10, In Bloom all from PTI

Papers: Hibiscus Burst from PTI, Very Vanilla, Basic Gray both from SU

Inks: Hibiscus Burst from PTI, Basic Gray from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Cream Seam Binding Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, Oval Punches, Heat n Stick Powder, Dazzlin' Diamonds all from SU, Hibiscus Burst Buttons from PTI

My next one is for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #47 and CC321 which was to use Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler. I wanted to make a doily-esque card, but haven't got the doily stamps from WMS yet as they were out of stock when I went to order them the other day, so I used a mixed combination of WMS stamps that I do have and came up with this! I quite like it - what do you think?


Recipe:

Stamps: Faux Fun Circles, Victorian Frippery, Fancy Phrases, Say It With Style all from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler all from SU

Accessories: Gems from papermania, Ribbon from stash

My next one is for Farm Fresh Friday's Throwback Challenge which was to use an old stamp - I pulled out my fave, Rockstar Anya! I also used SC327 for the sketch and Play Date Cafe's Challenge #80. I couldn't quite decide if the orangey-yellow colour was orange, yellow or what so I went with More Mustard, a kind of mix of both colours and I love how this one came out.



Recipe:

Stamps: Rockstar Anya from The Greeting Farm, Rock On from PTI

Papers: More Mustard, Early Espresso, Poppy Parade DSP all from SU, Copics White

Inks: More Mustard, Poppy Parade, Early Espresso all from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Gold Brads from stash

And my final card for today is for Free For All #63 to use a pocket on a card. I need to send a little note to a SU customer and thought this pocket style card was perfect!



Recipe:

Stamps: Just Believe from SU

Papers: Daffodil Delight, Real red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DSP all from SU

Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Real Red both from SU

Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Top Note Die both from SU
