First is my card for Just Add Ink #12 - the sketch and Sweet Stampin' #21 to use Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Kraft. I also used my one of my new fave stamp sets, Vintage Vogue. This stamp set just looks so pretty in all different colours, but pinks are still my fave! For the blue flowers I inked up the stamp using Bashful Blue, then went round the edges and centre using my Not Quite Navy marker - love how this turned out!
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Kraft, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy ink and marker
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta ribbon
My next card is for SCS SC275 and CC265 to use Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and Soft Suede (this will soon be one of our new colours - yay!). This simple looking card took me forever! I couldn't decide on the panels at first so did one in each colour, but that didn't look right so had to redo them. Then I wanted a certain sized frame, but couldn't punch it to the exact, or even close to the size I wanted so I ended up punching 4 separate corners with a bit of the sides and joining them together - what a faff!!!! But I like how it looks now I've done it.
Stamps: Bird On A Branch, Sweet Serenity wheel
Paper: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Inks: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede
Accessories: Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, Certainly Celery button, Scallop Trim border and corner punches
Up next is my card for Stacey's Curtain Call #25 to use Only Orange, Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow and Pixie Pink. Yikes!!! I also used Mojo#93 that I missed. These colours sure are bright but work so very well with this stamp set - Something Sweet! I still need to go and actually buy some sweeties to put in the sweet cups and then I'll be able to make a project with them!

My next card is for Our Creative Corner's Sketch #10 and SCS CC154 to use Certainly Celery, Orchid Opulence and Pumpkin Pie. I think this card needs a sentiment somewhere but I couldn't decide what or where so left it blank until I do decide.
Stamps: Playful Petals
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White, Certainly Celery DSP, Summer Picnic DSP
Inks: Basic Black, SU Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery

My next card is one of the busiest cards I've made in a while and I actually really like it even if there is a lot on it! This is for A Passion for Papertrey's Material Girl challenge, Mojo#133 which I turned on its side and for Color Throwdown #87 to use pink, gray and soft olive. I used PTI's Hibiscus Burst and Spring Moss and SU's Basic Gray. I used some of the Fleurettes II from Stampin' Up and ran my Hibiscus Burst ink cube over them and I really like the 2 tone look of them. This is also the first time I've used these flowers - they've been sat unopened in my box for at least a year!
Stamps: Guide Lines Two from PTI
Paper: Hibiscus Burst, Spring Moss, Bitty Dots Basics all from PTI, Basic Gray from SU, Non SU/PTI white cs

Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Fleurettes II, Bird punch (for the leaves), Spring Moss polka dot ribbon, Spring Moss buttons, Scallop Trim border punch, Corner Rounder Punch
And my final card of the weekend is for SCS Free For All #7 to make a quilt card, CC199 to use So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter and for Farm Fresh Friday's Spring Clean challenge. I totally forgot I had these top die note cuts that I received in a Wish RAK from SCS ages ago. I also have the die somewhere still in its wrapper never used - don't shoot me! But I couldn't find it! I remember where it used to live before I had a sort out of my crafting area in February, but now I have no idea where it's gone. I'm going to have to pull everything out and find it. I might just use it then! I still think the quilt needs something else - I should have put it through an embossing folder I think!
