Sharing on a Sunday

Just a few mixed cards for you...

This first one is for Just Magnolia Challenge #109 - Friends, Magnolia-licious' Inspiration Challenge #7 and old Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #2. I used the colours from the inspiration photo and came up with plum, sage green, lemon and white. I love how this one turned out!


Stamps: Tilda with Hawaiian Flower from Magnolia, Mat Stack 4 Collection from PTI

Papers: Sage Shadow, Barely Banana, Perfect Plum DSP, Spring Fling DSP (all retired) from SU, Copics White

Inks: Perfect Plum from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Ribbon and flowers from stash, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch both from SU

My next card is for Farm Fresh Friday's Favourite Holiday Challenge (guess which mine is!), Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #139 and Paper Pal Arts Challenge #95 to use brads.


Stamps: Spooktacular from The Greeting Farm

Papers: Really Rust, Only Orange (both retired) from SU, Copics White, Basic Grey Eerie Patterned Paper

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Brads from Papermania (I think)

My next card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch Challenge #5 for May, Free For All #66 to use something free (this paper pack came free this month with the magazine I'm subscribed to - it's called Picnic in the Park and is all reds, greens and cream colours.) and for Just Add Ink's Challenge #69 to use fussy cutting. I hope mine counts as I cut out the faux teared strip, faux rick rack, the scalloped tag and faux buttons all from the same paper pack!


Stamps: Vintage Picnic from PTI

Papers: Ruby Red (retired), River Rock both from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI, Picnic in the Park Patterned Paper from Serif (magazine freebie)

Inks: Ruby Red (retired) from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: 3D Gloss

And my final project for today is for CR84FN's Challenge #30 to use light blue, light yellow and kraft, for F4A6 to make an accordian card (I made an accordian mini photo album instead) and old Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #1 for the front of the album. This is the inspiration photo from CR84FN...

And this is the front of my album...

This is the inside of the album...

Stamps: Everday Classics from PTI

Papers: Barely Banana (retired), Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake all from SU, Copics White, Dovecraft Baby Patterned Paper Pack

Inks: Bashful Blue from SU

Accessories: Square and Circle Nestabilities, Ribbon and button from stash, Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel, Double Ended Banner die from PTI
