These are the other challenge cards I did this weekend. I probably won't get as many done next weekend as I have a ton of swaps to make for an SU event I'm going to on 18th July and I REALLY need to get on and finish my card sets for my work friends for end of year gifts and the 28 notebooks I'm making for my class!
My first card is for SCS' Free For All #18 - Ice Cream using my new Tilda stamps that I bought on Friday. I thought I'd make an easel card as I haven't done one of those for ages.
Stamps: Berry Tilda, Strawberry Ice Cream both from Magnolia, Spiral Bouquet (for the sentiment) from PTI
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Copic White cs, Non SU/PTI/Copic white cs, Piece of Cake DSP from Dovecraft
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Mementi Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Labels 4 Nestabilities
My next one involved using a stamp set I think I've only used once or twice but have had for absolutely ages! This is for Just Us Girls Challenge #40 for the sketch and there was an extra entry into the prize draw if you used any Just Rite stamps, so I dusted mine off and came up with this.
Stamps: 10 Designer Centers and Borders from Just Rite Stamps
Papers: Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, My Mind's Eye DSP (came free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and is a gorgeous pack of papers)
Inks: Pixie Pink and Certainly Celery markers
Accessories: Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Prima Flowers, Turquoise glittered brads from stash, Treading Water punch from Fiskars
My next card is one of 2 challenges over on the A Passion for Papertrey blog. The first was to make a circle card. I rarely do these as I don't think my circle Nestabilities are big enough to create anything worthwhile to be honest. I need a bigger circle die from somewhere. You can also see on this one how much my Sweet Blush and Aqua Mist inks need reinking but alas I have no reinkers and I don't want to buy any until the new inks come out in October! Argh I can't believe I have to wait THAT long!
This card is also for Mojo#145.
Stamps: Butterfly Kisses, Background Basics: Petal Power, Women of Life
Papers: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Stamper's Select white, 2008 Bitty Dot Basics DSP
Inks: Kiwi Kiss (SU), Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist (PTI)
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, White satin ribbon, Pearls from Lakeland, Cotton Candy Stickles
And my final card this week is for A Passion For Papertrey's Summertime challenge. When I think of summer several things come to mind - hot weather, no school, trips to the zoo and seaside, watching Shakespeare plays at Tolthorpe Hall with a picnic but most of all is strawberries and cream! I combined my picnics with my strawberries and came up with this one.
Stamps: Vintage Picnic from PTI
Papers: New Leaf, Stamper's Select White both from PTI, Real Red from SU
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, SU Markers
Accessories: Real Red Striped grosgrain ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Circle Nestabilities
And that's all for now folks! I may have a few challenges to show you next weekend but I really MUST get all my swaps and end of year pressies done first! I'm going to try and do a few bits during the week too, as long as I have all my schoolwork done first. Winding down at the end of the year is just as busy as the beginning of the year, if not more. At least all my reports are ready to go out on Tuesday!
