More Square Cards

Just a few square cards I made this week. I haven't been keeping up with my blog everyday idea that I was going to do, but I've developed a new Sims 3 addiction this week and keep forgetting to do other stuff on my laptop!

This first one is for A Passion For Papertrey's Sky's The Limit Challenge and old Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #110. I just had to use my new kites and the same sentiment! I'm planning on working through all the old TE sketch challenges, so you'll see lots of them on here at the minute!


Recipe:


Stamps: Up, Up & Away from PTI


Papers: Lavender Moon, Hibiscus Burst, Spring Rain, Stampers Select White all from PTI


Inks: Whisper White from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Lavender Moon, Hibiscus Burst both from PTI


Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Clouds Dies (to make masks) from PTI

My next card is for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #175 for the sketch, Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #82 Summer (Summer to me is definitely more ice cream!) and for Colour Create's Challenge #76 to use pink, green and white.


Recipe:


Stamps: Sweet Treats from Pink Cat Studio

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Mellow Moss (retired) both from SU, Copics White, English Rose Collection Papers from Kaisercraft

Inks: Pink Pirouette from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Pink Seam Binding Ribbons from Crafty Ribbons, Oval Nestabilities, Pink Glitter Brads from stash, White Opal Liquid Pearls, Double Ended Banner Die from PTI

My next card is a little bit of a cheater card. I actually made this one this morning for last week's Just Magnolia's Just Cooking Challenge without checking that they had actually got a new challenge up, Bows, Buttons and Blooms, so I'm entering it for that one instead as it still fits! I used Papertake Weekly's Sketch #58 and the idea of cake from Magnolia-licious' Inspiration Challenge. I don't have any Tilda wedding or sailor stamps so went with cake instead. (And having just uploaded the photo I've noticed that I stuck the ribbon, image and sentiment all on upside down as my cherries in the background are facing upwards! Duh! I'll just pretend that they are funny shaped flowers instead LOL)


Recipe:

Stamps: Tilda With Cowberry Muffin, Love Muffin both from Magnolia, Piece of Cake from PTI

Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist both from SU, Copics White, Lemonade Paper Pack from Basic Grey

Inks: Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Ribbon from stash, Paper doily from eBay, Marina Mist Button, Red buttons from stash, Paper Rose from eBay, Blue Silk Roses from Papermania

And my final square card is only for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #114. I did leave the buttons off though and use a bow instead. I took my MIL shopping yesterday and she wanted to buy a wedding card form her step-grandson's wedding. The one she chose had a blue car on a plain cream base and Happy Wedding Day on it and that was pretty much it and it cost £2.99. Complete rip off if you ask me. So I told her I would make her one (she didn't ask me to begin with as she said I was on my holidays - huh?! Like I need an excuse to do a bit of crafting!)


Recipe:

Stamps: Enjoy The Ride from PTI

Papers: Baja Breeze, Bridesmaid DSP (retired), Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Baja Breeze from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories: Silver Pearls from eBay, Circle Nestabilities, Baja Breeze Seam Binding from SU

And that's all from this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Vannessa,
    Your Tilda card is very sweet :o)
    You have all the colours on your card - it doesn't matter what images you use at all. You were very smart to use the cupcake for a cake! Love your red polka dot ribbon and your pretty buttons.
    Thanks so much for playing in our Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
    Hugs, Candy
