First up is a card that I thought I would struggle with - making a Kiss (Keep It Simple, Sweetie) card for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #15, but I really like it! I don't usually do CAS cards as I'm not a fan of all the white space, but I like this one! I also used the colour combo from Just Add Ink's #13 to use Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Barely Banana. And for the first time in ages I managed to decorate the inside too! I always forget to do this!
Stamps: Beautiful Bloom II and Big Bold Wishes both from PTI
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, MS Cornice border punch (on the inside)
My next card is for Charisma Cardz Challenge #15 - Monochromatic and for the sketch from Crazy for Challenges #33. After trying a few sweetie cards with this stamp set, I thought I'd try a baby's rattle and it's just as cute!
Stamps: Something Sweet
Papers: Bashful Blue cs and DSP, Whisper White
Inks: Bashful Blue
Accessories: Light Blue Gingham ribbon, Crystal Effects
For my next card I used the colour challenge from Sketch 'n' Color #7 to use Creamy Caramel, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue and the sketch from Our Creative Corner #11. I made a cute 4" square card and much prefer this size to the usual 5" square cards I make.
Stamps: On A Pedestal
Papers: Bashful Blue, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip DSP, Spiced Cider DSP
Inks: Bashful Blue ink and marker, SU markers in Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa and Summer Sun
Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon
And my final card for today uses Mojo#134 - the sketch - and Color Throwdown #88 to use Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray and So Saffron. I'm not 100% sure about this card - I'm not overkeen on the Nouveau Chic panel to be honest.
Stamps: Beautiful Kindness, Small Tropical flower both from Verve
Papers: Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Whisper White, So Saffron cs & DSP, Nouveau Chic DSP
Inks: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron
Accessories: Tangerine Tango ribbon, Lemon half pearls, EK Success Wavy border punch
I just realised none of these cards use pink at all - shock horror!!! So be sure to check out my next post for the Inspiring Inkin' challenge which uses 2 different pinks!!!
Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
