Today's cards are a bit of a mixture of different challenges from this week.
The first one is for Stacey's Curtain Call #51 to use So Saffron, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Basic Black and Crumb Cake. I so needed to use my new Notably Ornate set and came up with this design!
My next card is for Sweet Sunday Sketch #88 and Totally Tilda's #7 to make a traditional red and green Christmas card. I decided to make my little Elf Tilda into a Christmas fairy/elf and prop her up on a bauble!
Stamps: Elf Tilda, Big Christmas Ornament both from Magnolia, Tiny Tags from SU
Papers: Old Olive, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Christmas Jingle Scrapping Kit all from SU
Inks: Real Red, Old Olive from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Real Red Grosgrain ribbon, Jewelry Tag Punch, Diamond Stickles
My next card is a very pink one for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #9 to make a pink square card with at least 4 other squares on it, Just Add Ink's #38 to add bling and pink, an altered version of Mojo #147 and Sweet Stampin's #47 Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend. I did actually use diamonds on this card, Dazzling Diamonds that is!
Stamps: Just Believe
Papers: Pretty in Pink cs & DSP from the Subtles pack, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Versamark
Accessories: Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Pink gems from stash, Heat 'n' Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds
And my final card today is what I'm calling a non-traditional Hallowe'en card in that it doesn't use my usual colours of purple, black, orange and green! This one is for A Passion for Papertrey's Awesomely Autumnal challenge to make an Autumn card. Well Autumn is all about Hallowe'en for me! It's also for Papertrey Posse's Petite Challenge #8 to make a Hallowe'en card using Plum Pudding, Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz and Black! I loved this combo - so bright and funky and would be great for a bright flowers card too. I also used Mojo #27 for the layout but changed where the ribbon went as it would have covered up too much of my image!
Stamps: Friendship Jar, Fall Fillers, Tiny Treats: Halloween all from PTI
Papers: Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding, Hawaiian Shores, Stampers Select white cs all from PTI, Basic Black from SU
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Purple embroidery thread from stash, Raspberry Fizz ribbon
And I made a little tote bag to go with the birthday card I made for my friend Jayne yesterday. I used the small All Around Tote template from PTI and it was the perfect size to fit her jewellery gift in that my friend Michele and I bought for her. Just hope she likes it all.
Stamps: Embellishments, Dot Spot
Papers: Blushing Bride from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI
Inks: Basic Black, Blushing Bride both from SU
Accessories: Large and small tag punches, Oval and Scallop Oval punches, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta ribbon all from SU, All Around Tote template from PTI
And this is the card and tote bag together - don't they look pretty?!
