Flowers, Hallowe'en and a Party!

Daft title I know, but I think it has a bit of a ring to it! LOL

My first card for today is for Mojo #155 and Color Throwdown #109 to use Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight. I just had to use some of my new Verve stamps that arrived this week from the anniversary release and I love them all!


Stamps: Great Friend from Verve

Papers: Melon Mambo cs & DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DSP

Inks: Melon Mambo, Versamark, Basic Black

Accessories: tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Yellow glitter brad from stash

My next card uses another of my new Verve sets - this time it was Dream Big. This one is for Taylored Expressions sketch #127 and Just Add Ink's #34 to use So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft!) I added a bit of shimmer paint to my flower but not sure if you can see in the photo - it looks lovely IRL.


Stamps: Dream Big from Verve

Papers: Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White, Bella Bleu DSP, Tea Party DSP

Inks: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Accessories: Dragonfly brad and designer brad both from Papermania, Kraft Taffeta ribbon

My next 2 cards use the same Hallowe'en set and papers from PTI and I absolutely love them! I love Hallowe'en and everyone gets a card from me as I just love making Hallowe'en cards! This first one is for A Passion For Papertrey's Punch It Challenge and for Our Creative Corner's Sketch #32. This card is completely inspired by one Nichole Heady did here. The ribbon on this one needed something a bit extra so I stamped lots of the same spiders all along it and doesn't it look fabby?!


Stamps: Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Fall Fillers from PTI

Papers: Orange Zest, Stampers Select White, Halloween Prints all from PTI, Black glitter card

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Martha Stewart Spiderweb Punch Round The Page set, Orange Zest ribbon, Black Diamond Stickles

My next Hallowe'en card is for Papertake Weekly's Sketch #47 and for Papertrey Peeps #15 to be inspired by Fall. Autumn time to me is always returning to school after the holidays and then the build up for Hallowe'en starts with me making all my cards and pressies. Not sure if you can tell in the photo but I covered the jar with Crystal Effects to give it that clear glass sheen!


Stamps: Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Fall Fillers

Papers: Black Glitter card, Orange Zest, Stampers Select White, Halloween Prints DSP

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Martha Stewart Spiderweb Punch Round The Page set, Crystal Effects, Orange Zest ribbon

And my final card is a little party invitation for the In Love With Stamping challenge for this month (done all these now!) and for the Stampin' Royalty's challenge #36 which was to use the given photo as an inspiration.


Stamps: Birthday Whimsy, Happy Moments, Just Perfect Alphabet all from SU

Papers: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, So Saffron, Rose Red, Whisper White, Junior Varsity DSP

Inks: Basic Black, Bashful Blue ink & marker, SU Markers in Rose Red, Old Olive, So Saffron

Accessories: None for once!
