Sharing on a Sunday

Well it's Sunday again and I spent most of the day crafting away! I love being able to do that!

My first card today is for A Passion For Papertrey's Tag - You're It Challenge, using the colours Betsy Veldman used on the PTI colour challenge they hosted the other day. I didn't get chance to make a card for it, but I love this combo so used it today! This is the tag I made...

And this is the card I attached it to, using old Mojo #36 for the layout!


Stamps: All Booked Up, Mat Stack 1 Collection, Everyday Button Bits

Papers: Naturals Ivory from SU, Hibiscus Burst, Scarlet Jewel, Distressed Dots DSP all from PTI

Inks: Kiwi Kiss (retired) from SU, Hibiscus Burst, Scarlet Jewel

Accessories: Hibiscus Burst ribbon and Buttons, Harvest Gold felt and Buttons, Scarlet Jewel Buttons, Mat Stack 3 die, 1 3/4" Limited Layers Circle Collection Dies, Medium Butterfly Die, Signature Series Butterfly Die, Double Ended Banner Die all from PTI

My next card is for Sweet Sunday's Sketch #104 and CC307 to use Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant and Riding Hood Red. I was totally inspired by Karen's card and made a banner one myself! And I used the repeated sentiment idea that I did a couple of weeks back here.


Stamps: Banner Builder, Mega Mixed Messages, Make A Wish all from PTI

Papers: Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Washington Apple DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red

Accessories: Banner Builder Dies from PTI, Circle Nestabilities,  Zig Zag Punch and Red Baker's Twine both from Martha Stewart, Elegant Eggplant Ribbon from SU

My next two cards both use one of my 3 new sets from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I've been meaning to get some for ages but never got round it to until now. I love some of their designs - so different! This first one is for Waltzing Mouse Sketch #34 and for CR84FN15 to use teal, yellow and green. This is the fab inspiration swatch!

And here's my take on these colours and sketch. I left most of it uncluttered to show off this beautiful background pattern - this is the stamp I bought this set for. It's SO pretty!


Stamps: Victorian Frippery from Waltzing Mouse Stamps, Delightful Dahlias from PTI

Papers: Taken With Teal (retired), Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz all from SU

Inks: Taken With Teal (retired) Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz all from SU

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Doily from eBay, Delightful Dahlias Die and Double Ended Banners Die both from PTI, Daffodil Delight Ribbon from SU, Button from Elzybells, Lemon Twine from The Ribbon Reel

And my final card for today's post is for a few old challenges I want to catch up on - Free For All #50 to use white or vanilla, one neutral shade, one other colour and all stamping must be in the same colour, CC48 to use Creamy Caramel and Not Quite Navy and for Mojo #69 for the sketch.


Stamps: Victorian Frippery from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Not Quite Navy, Creamy Caramel (retired), Very Vanilla all from SU, Linen Closet DSP from DCWV

Inks: Not Quite Navy

Accessories: Cornice Border Punch from Martha Stewart, Circle Nestabilities, Primas, Brads and Ribbon from stash.
