Sharing Sunday's On A Monday!

I completely forgot to blog these cards yesterday as I started making my 40 swaps for the Stampin' Up training I'm attending on July 10th! I've got so much going on in the next 3 weeks I thought I'd better get started as early as possible!

This first card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for June and old CC119 to use Real Red, Barely Banana and Creamy Caramel. An odd combination I thought initially but I love how it came out!


Stamps: Flutterby Friend, Think Big Favorites #1, Big & Bold Wishes, Mat Stack 1 Collection all from PTI

Papers: Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel, Real Red DSP from hostess pack (all retired) from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel (both retired), Real Red all from SU

Accessories: Caramel Gingham Ribbon (retired) from SU, Red Felt from Hobbycraft, Button from stash, Frilly Squares #1 dies from Go Kreate, Forever Friends Embossing Folder

My next one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #53 and old CC91 to use More Mustard, Sage Shadow and Cranberry Crisp which I subbed with Purely Pomegranate as I have no Cranberry! I just can't stop making these cute medallions with my Victorian Frippery set now! I will get the doilies stamps soon from WMS, but I'll have to wait for pay day on Thursday!


Stamps: Victorian Frippery, Say It With Style both from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: More Mustard, Purely Pomegranate (retired), Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Purely Pomegranate, Sage Shadow (both retired), More Mustard all from SU

Accessories: Purely Pomegranate ribbon (retired) from SU, Double Ended Banner Die from PTI

And my final card for today is for SC338 and CC45 to use Night of Navy, Handsome Hunter and Blush Blossom. I really didn't think I would like this one as Handsome Hunter was one of my least favourite colours from the old SU colours. However, I do quite like it, even if my Blush tulips are more peachy than Blush!


Stamps: Friendship Jar, friendship Jar Spring Fillers both from PTI

Papers: Handsome Hunter, Blush Blossom, Night of Navy DSP from hostess pack all retired from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Handsome Hunter (retired), Night of Navy both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Pearls from eBay (coloured with Copics), Night of Navy ribbon (retired) from SU

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