Flower Foursome

Just a few flowery cards I made this weekend!

This first one is for Sweet Sunday's Sketch Challenge #110, Papertake Weekly's Challenge to make a card for mum (It's Mother's Day here in the UK on April 3rd so thought I'd be prepared ahead of time - that both mine own mum and my MIL cards sorted out now!) and for CR84FN21 to use garnet, chartreuse and cream. This is their gorgeous inspiration swatch...

And here's my card for this challenge...


Stamps: In Bloom, Delightful Dahlias both from PTI

Papers: Simply Chartreuse, Scarlet Jewel both from PTI, Cream cs from stash, Prima's Moulin Rouge Patterned Paper Pack

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Scarlet Jewel from PTI

Accessories: Ribbon from stash, Brads from stash, Oval Nestabilities, White Opal Liquid Pearls

My next one is for SC325 for the sketch, Paper Pal Arts Challenge #86 to use embossing (I used debossing I guess it's called so I hope that counts!), Make It Monday #7 to colour coloured, not neutral, cardstock (I added a bit of shading to the Lemon Tart flower and Plum Pudding centre) and for Totally Hues #4 to use Lemon Tart, Plum Pudding, Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf.


Stamps: All About You from PTI

Papers: Plum Pudding, New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz, Lemon Tart, 2008 Bitty Dot Basics Patterned Paper Pack all from PTI, Whisper White from SU

Inks: New Leaf from PTI, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Eyelet Border Die, Polka Dots Impression Plate both from PTI, Sepia Zoomz (like Dew Drops) from Stamp Galaxy, 3/4" circle punch from SU

My next one is for CC59 to use Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Certainly Celery and for Just Add Ink #61 to only use stamps and cardstock - no accessories, no embellishments, no punches, no DSP, no anything else! I did actually make one card for this challenge with punches on, went back to check the write up for the challenge and realised that I wasn't allowed to use the 4 punches I had used, so started again! Never mind, I'll save that card for another day!


Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Perfect Punches, Tiny Tags all from SU

Papers: Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery all from SU

Accessories: None!

My last flowery card is one I couldn't work well with at all, but I gave it a shot anyway. The sketch is from Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #64 and the colours are from Color Throwdown's Challenge #134 to use Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.


Stamps: Hopeful Thoughts from SU

Papers: Marina Mist cs and DSP from Subtles pack, Pumpkin Pie, slivers of Old Olive, Whisper White, Jolly Holiday DSP all from SU

Inks: SU Markers in Marina Mist, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Marina Mist ribbon, Pumpkin Pie buttons both from SU
