A Few Random Cards

Just a few more I've done this week...

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #57 (I've missed the last couple of these so need to get caught up again!) and Color Throwdown's Challenge #152 to use Rose Red, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and River Rock. As soon as I put my ink pads together for these colours I fell in love! This combo is absolutely GORGEOUS!


Stamps: Large Doily, Dainty Doilies 2, Say It With Style all from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Rose Red, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Rose Red, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, River Rock ink and marker all from SU

Accessories: None

My next one is so out of my usual style but I really like it! This one is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #78 to use Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery - perfect colours for a man's card! I also used Free For All's Challenge #75 to make a CAS card.


Stamps: Birthday Bash Sentiments, Boy Basics: Simple Circles both from PTI

Papers: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery all from SU

Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder from SU, Crop-a-dile (to punch the small circles), Simple Circles Border Die from PTI

And my final card is for SC343, CC333 to use Island Indigo (which I swapped for Bermuda Bay - looked the closest colour to the swatch), Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight and for Paper Pal Arts Challenge #104 to use Paper Piercing. I pierced round the edges of each strip although it's kinda hard to tell in the photo.


Stamps: Botanical Silhouettes from PTI

Papers: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight cs and DSP from Brights Stack, Tangerine Tango

Inks: Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay

Accessories: Fun Flowers Sizzix Die, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Tangerine Tango Ribbon (retired) all from SU, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug

And that's all from me for today folks! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget it's the Mini VSN over on SCS tonight. I'm hostessing the 9pm challenge (so that's 2am for me! ARGH! Will have a nap later so I can be awake enough for it!)
