Embellishments and Hallowe'en

Just a few more cards I did today for a few more challenges! The other cards I did with my new SU stash can be found here if you want a peek!

The first one is for Papertake's Weekly Challenge and as it's their 3rd birthday (congrats to them all) this week's challenge is to redo your favourite challenge of theirs so far. I chose to do Black, White & one other colour from way back in September 2009 for mine. I did a similar card to the one I did here for the Papertrey Ink blog hop this month for my friend's birthday card, which is tomorrow. I do need to make a matching box as well, but I didn't get time today, so will have to do it tomorrow morning.


Stamps: Embellishments from PTI, Curly Cute from SU

Papers: Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Whisper White

Inks: Basic Black, Blushing Bride

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Pink gems from Papermania

My next card uses the same stamp set but a different stamp. This one is for Hope You Can Cling To challenge #7 to use one of the Cancer ribbon colours (I chose lavender which represents all cancers) and to borrow something so I "borrowed" or CASEd this layout from the sample for F4A32, which I loved. I also used CC64B to use Lavender Lace and Chocolate Chip.

Papers: lavender Lace, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

Inks: Lavender Lace, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Labels 14 Nestabilities, Paper Piercer and mat pack

And my final card is another Hallowe'en one - I still need to do loads more of these. This one is for Hope You Can Cling To challenge #6 to use something old (my wheel and background stamp are both about 2-3 years old) and something new (my cardstock, ink and ribbons arrived just yesterday!). I used CC287 to use Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush, Mojo #159 for the layout and Just Magnolia #76 to do everything in pairs, so I had 2 ribbons, 2 background stamps, 2 different colours of dew drops, 2 other stamps, 2 nestabilities, but I did only have 1 punch and 3 colours (well 4 if you count the white cardstock I coloured in!)


Stamps: Flying Witch Tilda from Magnolia, Friendship Jar Fall Fillers from PTI, Spooky Skyline wheel from SU, Hallowe'en from Hero Arts

Papers: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Copics White

Inks: Basic Black, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Concord Crush ribbon, Peach Parfait ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Cornice Border Punch, Dew Drops

And that's all for today folks! I'm sure I'll be doing a few challenges tomorrow so be sure to pop back then!
