More pink cards...

I just love my pinks, so here's a little batch of pink cards to add to my stash!

This first one is for Color Throwdown's Challenge #177 to use Melon Mambo, Black and White - what a fab combo!!! I also used Sketch Challenge #64 from Papertake Weekly, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #202 to use buttons and bows and this is also for Cupcake Craft Challenge #177 to recycle something. The small buttons on my sentiment panel were actually spares that came with a new top I bought a while ago and were the perfect colour for this challenge! I have developed a thing for heat embossing at the minute. When I first discovered this technique years ago in my early days of stamping and card making I did it all the time. Then I got bored of using it and went on to others things as you do and now I have rediscovered it and love it again!

My next card is for Friday Mashup's Challenge #44 to use the inspiration photo and/or Cherry Cobbler, Regal Rose and Whisper White, Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #109 Love/Valentines and for Viva la Verve's Sketch #1 for February.  I don't normally make long cards like this one, but I actually enjoyed working on a slightly larger canvas - gave a different feel to it. Took me ages to decide on the hearts at the side though - I punched and die cuts loads out and couldn't decide how to arrange them.

And my final card for today is for Make It Monday Challenge #51 to create a dimensional sentiment banner and for ColourQ's Challenge #122. Here's the ColourQ swatch - gorgeous combo! Rather than doing the same old stamping on white, I thought I would stamp on the Kraft cardstock instead and I love how the colours are slightly muted!


And here's my card.

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

  4. All of your pink cards are very pretty! I think the middle one is my favorite-the longer length is eye-catching and I love the way you finished it with the hearts! MIM #51 is a really great take on the challenge, too!
