I managed just a few more cards this week in between all the other odds and ends I was doing. This first one is for In Love With Stamping's April Challenge Anything Goes which was to use chalks and for SCS CC52F to use Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and So Saffron. I stamped my strips using Versamark then coloured over them in the same colour chalks and chalked the edges of the strips as well. I also used chalks to colour in the cupcakes using my blender pens. I love the bright tropical colours of this one!
Stamps: Cupcakes wheel, Well Scripted
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White
Inks: Versamark, Basic Black, Stampin' Pastels
Accessories: Paper piercer and mat
Next is the week's entry for Stacey's Curtain Call #24 to use Kraft, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Garden Green and White. I really struggled with this one as I'm not a fan of Garden Green at all. It's just too dark for my liking, but I gave it a shot anyways. I'm also entering it for Sweet Stamping's Challenge #20 to make a man's card, which I think these colours definately are. I also used an old Mojo Sketch #107 as I'm trying to get through all the ones I missed.
Stamps: Happy Moments, Party Teddies from Elzybells
Paper: Kraft, Garden Green, Whisper White, Rainbow Sherbet DSP
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos
Accessories: Mini buttons from Papermania, So Saffron ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
My next 3 cards all use some of the fab new stamp sets and papers from the new mini catalogue that came out last week. If you would like to order any of these or any other stuff from Stampin' Up, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The first one is for this month's colour challenge on ILWS to use Pixie Pink, Pink Passion and Pretty in Pink and also fitted the colour challenges for SCS CC112 & CC136 both of which were to use any combination of pinks! The layout comes from Mojo#98 as well. I'm also entering it for the Charima Cardz Challenge #14 to make a thank you card.
Stamps: Something Sweet
Paper: Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Whisper White, Tea Party DSP
Inks: Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Crystal Effects
My next one uses the fab new Bird punch. This punch is in the new flat style and locks closed so it take up less rooms than the old style punches. It's so easy to use as well.I used the sketch from Mercy's #68 and the colour combo from Stampin' Royalty's #14 to use Taken With Teal, Tempting Turquoise and So Saffron. See that shimmer on the birdie's body too? That's the new shimmer paint in Frost White just to give the bird a little bit of sparkle!
Paper: So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Taken With Teal, Sweet Pea DSP
Accessories: Large Bird Punch, Circle Nestabilities
And my final card for today uses the new Sweet Pea papers and matching stamp set! I used Sketch 'n' Color's #6 for my layout and took the colours from the DSP for a change!
Stamps: Sweet Pea, Something Sweet
Paper: So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Inks: So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Pretty in Pink Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercer and Mat
And now my holiday has come to an end I'll be back to doing my usual marathon card making challenges at the weekends :( Thanks for looking - hope you enjoyed them all!
