Only a few challenges today

Only because I'm saving some for tomorrow's Sale-A-Bration blog hop! So you'll have to come back tomorrow for a few more!

Today's first is for Stamp With Us' sketch challenge and Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge #254.


Stamps: Best Wishes and More, Say It With Scallops

Papers: Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Bashful Blue DSP

Inks: Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Bashful Blue

Accessories: Soft Suede polka dot ribbon, Scallop Square punch, Scallop Edge punch, Paper Piercer

Number 2 is for Color Throwdown #76, Charisma Cardz #3 to use fruity colours which I think these really are and Mojo #122!

The So Saffron on the background panel looks more peachy than saffron in the photo but I can assure you it really is So Saffron!


Stamps: Kindred Spirits from Verve

Papers: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Whisper White

Inks: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, So Saffron

Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Oval Nestabilities

And my final project for today is a cute little picnic basket using one of Lauren Meader's old templates for the Just Us Girls challenge #17. My printer is well and truely kaputt and rather than wasting money on a new one that could be better spent on stamping supplies I print things out at work! Tut tut!! But as I'm not at work until Monday I couldn't use one of Lauren's new templates so I used one of her old ones from when she designed for Papertrey Ink. This is Pack A Picnic and I so LOVE this template! It's one of the best ones Lauren has ever done! I made the small one to put some little chocolates in as a little gift when I need one.

This is the picnic box with the lid on and the following picture shows the flower on top better.


Stamps: None

Papers: really Rust, Old Olive, Spiced Cider DSP (retired)

Inks: None

Accessories: Pack A Picnic template, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Old Olive brads, Scalloped circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Latte Buttons
