We had a fantastically busy time in Chester this week (bought lots of lovely things too, but no crafting stuff), but I was definitely having crafting withdrawal symptoms by the end of our visit. So guess what I did today? Made up for it that's for sure!
This first card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #3 for August, Free for All's Challenge #77 to make a frame and Just Magnolia's Challenge #120 to use funny sentiments. I thought this little sentiment from Everyday Button Bits by PTI was a perfect fit for Tilda with her kite!
Stamps: Tilda With Kite from Magnolia, Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Soft Sky (retired), Regal Rose both from Stampin' Up, Copics White, Tilda Flowergarden DSP
Inks: Regal Rose from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilities, Doily and Paper Roses all from eBay
My next card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for August, CC336 to use Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder (which I subbed with Lovely Lilac as we don't have that in color over here yet! GRRR!) and Make It Monday's Challenge #28 to use glitter die borders. I completely copied Erin and used one of my new Half & Half dies for this one as it fitted the sketch perfectly!
Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Butterfly Kisses, Half & Half all from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Sahara Sand cs and DSP from Neutrals stack, Lovely Lilac (retired), Blushing Bride all from Stampin' Up, Stampers Select White from Papertrey Ink
Inks: Sahara Sand, Lovely Lilac (retired) both from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Purple Glitter from Stampin' Up, Medium Butterfly Die, Signature Series Butterfly Die, Half & Half Die, Fine Linen Button all from Papertrey Ink, Pink and Lilac felt from Hobbycraft
My next card is for Paper Pal Arts Challenge #107 for the sketch and Color Throwdown's Challenge #155 to use Early Espresso, Barely Banana, Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss. What a gorgeous combo this one was - definitely one to keep for later!
Stamps: Growing Green from Stampin' Up
Papers: Barely Banana (retired), Early Espresso, Raspberry Tart DSP (retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copics White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punch
And my final pink card is for Cupcake Craft Challenges for the sketch, Farm Fresh Friday's Button It Up Challenge, Papertake Weekly's Eyes Down, Look In Challenge (I used Ribbon, Buttons and had a free slot so used glitter) and Play Date Café's Challenge #95 to use Navy, Bubblegum and Leaf Green. I thought I would have a go at a Betsy Veldman-esque style background by lining my flowers up on top of each other and love how they came out!
This is the colour swatch from PDCC#95.
And here's my take on it...
Stamps: Hats Off from The Greeting Farm, Make A Wish, Flower Fusion #5 both from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Blushing Bride, Green Galore (retired) both from Stampin' Up, Copics White
Inks: Night of Navy, green Galore (retired), Blushing Bride all from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Blushing Bride Ribbon from Stampin' Up, Sweet Blush Buttons, Enchanted Evening Button, Vintage Cream Linen Thread all from Papertrey Ink, Icicle Stickles
And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
