Saturday's Challenge Cards

Thought I'd try and get some challenges uploaded today!

The first card is for Stacey's Curtain Call # 15 (will I get it uploaded in time before the challenge runs out this week?!) and for the new Our Creative Corner's Sketch #1.

Got a couple of new things on this card - the Martha Stewart Double Loops Punch Around The Page and the new Jules Jewels embossing folder. I didn't like this combo when I first saw it, but it all came together so easily and the Garden Green really does go well with the Lavender and Pumpkin.


Stamps: Razzle Dazzle

Papers: Lavender Lace, Garden Green, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie cs and DP

Inks: SU Markers in Lavender Lace, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Whisper White Satin Ribbon, White Brad and flowers from stash, Martha Stewart Double Loops Punch, Jules Jewels embossing folder

Card # 2 is for Farm Fresh Friday's gorgeous sketch challenge and for Color Throwdown #78. These colours were just so pretty and soft to work with and matched my pretty little Miss Anya beautifully.

I couldn't find any buttons in a pale enough blue anywhere to match the Soft Sky so I punched a flower out of the cardstock and added it to the front of a clear button - exactly what I needed to fill in that little gap!


Stamps: Miss Anya Dressy, Polka Dot Background from SU

Papers: Kraft, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Non SU white cardstock, DP from My Mind's Eye (Blue) and Imaginisce (pink double sided)

Inks: Pink Pirouette, Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos

Accessories: Boho Blossoms Punch, Clear Buttons, Linen Thread, Pink Pirouette Ribbon

My next card is for one of my TAs at school. Linda is a lovely lady who always knows exactly what we need to cheer us up when we have had a very stressful week (which at the minute seems to be every week!). She either bakes us all a heavenly chocolate cake or buys us a little chocolate something, so this card is to thank her for all those kind little thoughts! It's also for Just Us Girls Challenge #19 and Stamp With Us' theme challenge to make a thank you card.


Stamps: Happy Hearts Day

Papers: Pixie Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White, DP from Heidi Grace

Inks: Basic Black, SU Markers in Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink, Blush Blossom

Accessories: Ribbon from stash, Clear Adhesive Gems, Circle Nestabilities

And my final card for today is one for my friend's birthday, which is actually on Valentine's day, but we're celebrating it with a girly night out next Friday instead. This is a larger than usual card at 5 x 7 inches so there is enough room for everyone to sign it! It's also for Linda's Tackle It Tuesday Colour Challenge #2 (I missed #1 - oops!), Sweet Stamping's #12 - Floral Frenzy and Truly Scrumptious' Sketch #25.


Stamps: One of A Kind, Sincere Salutations

Papers: Really Rust, More Mustard CS & DP from retired hostess pack, Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum CS & DP

Inks: Really Rust, More Mustard, Perfect Plum

Accessories: Boho Blossoms Punch, Circle Nestabilities, Scallop Edge Punch, Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon

I'll be back with some more tomorrow :)
