A few blues...

The other cards I did this weekend all have blue in...

My first one is for Just Magnolia's Challenge #111 for the sketch and Totally Tilda's Challenge #24 to use red, white and blue. I just bought this Tilda stamp and think it is really cute, so just had to use it for a little thank you card.


Stamps: Strawberry Yummy Tilda from Magnolia, Cupcake Collection from PTI

Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Jolly Holiday DSP all from SU, Copics White, Strawberry DSP from Magnolia

Inks: Cherry Cobbler from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon from SU, Roses from eBay, Lace from Cuddy Buddly, Oval Nestabilities

My next one is a father's day card with a difference. Our little kitten is now 12 weeks old and I thought it might be quite cute to make a Father's Day card for my boyfriend from her as a little joke! This one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for June, Free For All #68 to use some of your neglected stamps (I think I last inked this set up at Christmas) and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #75 Let's Celebrate Dad.


Stamps: Cat Plate 1 from Pink Cat Studio, Paw Prints Wheel from SU, Tag It #2 from PTI

Papers: Marina Mist cs and DSP from Subtles Stack, Basic Gray cs and DSP from Neutrals Stack all from SU, Copics White

Inks: Not Quite Navy from SU, Memento tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Labels 4 Nestabilities, Marina Mist Ribbon from SU, Medium Scallop Border Die from PTI

And my final card for today is for Color Throwndown's Challenge #145 to use Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz, Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #140 (I was very liberal with this sketch though) and Paper Pal Arts Challenge #97 to show your signature style. I guess my style is layers of colour with some patterned paper and usually some ribbon, so I think this card covers that one.


Stamps: Calendar Basics, Beautiful Blooms II both from PTI

Papers: Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP all from SU

Inks: Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron both from SU

Accessories: Beautiful Blooms Dies #1 from PTI, So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Sweet Buttons Embosslits from SU

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