Stamp A Faire Challenges Part 1

This weekend Papertrey Ink are having their annual Stamp-A-Faire celebrations, basically a weekend of themed card making challenges and I managed to find the time to do a few of them.

The first challenge was called Breakfast Bake & Take in which you had to choose a colour combo and sketch for your card. I chose these ones...

And here's my card... Definitely need some new Raspberry Fizz and Scarlet Jewel inks. Mine are still the old ones and have all but run out now! Must place a PTI order soon...


Stamps: Rosie Posie, Think Big Favorites #16, Background Basics: Twinkle all from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Raspberry Fizz, Royal Velvet, Stampers Select White all from Papertrey Ink

Inks: Scarlet Jewel, Raspberry Fizz, Lavender Moon all from Papertrey Ink, Concord Crush, Old Olive both from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Rosie Posie Dies from Papertrey Ink

My next card is for the Gallon, Quart, Pint challenge in which we had to choose three colours, making one of them the dominant colour for the gallon, the secondary colour was for the quart and the third colour was the pint which had to have the least amount in the card. I used the sketch from SC450 as well for this one.

And here's my card. I used the red as my gallon, green for the quart and brown for the pint.


Stamps: Heart-2-Heart #10 & 12 both from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Real Red, Chocolate Chip both from Stampin' Up, Pure Poppy Patterned Papers, Simply Chartreuse Patterned Papers, Dark Chocolate Patterned Papers, Stampers Select White all from Papertrey Ink
