Sharing on a Sunday

Just a few more I did this weekend...

This first one is for Mojo Monday Challenge #195 for the sketch, Color Throwdown's Challenge #146 to use daffodil, tangerine and kiwi and for A Passion For Papertrey's It's Elementary Challenge. I took a very loose view of this challenge and used butterflies as they fly in the air!


Stamps: Botanical Silhouettes, Butterfly Dreams both from PTI

Papers: Daffodil Delight, Kiwi Kiss (retired), Haiku DSP (retired), Sunny Garden DSP all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Kiwi Kiss (retired), Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black all from SU

Accessories: Tangerine Tango Ribbon (retired), Scallop Edge Punch both from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Buttons from Papermania

My next one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch Challenge #3 for June, Farm Fresh Friday's Get Sentimental Challenge to use sentiments, Just Add Ink's Challenge #72 to just add some colouring in, Colour Create's Challenge #73 to use blue, grey and white and Papertake Weekly's Challenge Dads & Lads!


Stamps: Flirty Edward and sentiment both from Roll Call 1 from The Greeting Farm

Papers: Not Quite Navy, Basic Gray both from SU, Copics White, Bayberry Cottage Patterned Paper from Pink Paislee, Marjolaine Patterned Paper from Basic Gray

Inks: Not Quite Navy from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Ribbon from Stash, Circle Nestabilities, Wavy Border Punch from EK Success, Distressing Tool from SU

My next one is a theme I hate making - a sympathy card. My great uncle died on Tuesday and this is for his family. I did use a couple of challenges for it and thought this colour scheme from CC327 was quite calming. This is also for Free For All #69 to CASE a cyber friend's card. I used this card, by my lovely friend Amy, with whom I started doing a challenge blog for our Stampin' Up team a while back (we no longer do it though!) and we have kept in touch ever since.


Stamps: Polka Dot Basics II, Botanical Silhouettes both from PTI

Papers: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Bella Rose DSP (retired), Bali Breeze DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive both from SU

Accessories: Fun Flower Die, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch all from SU, Button from Elzybells

My last card for this weekend is a re-do! Last weekend I did the challenge for Taylored Expressions Sketch #140 all wrong! I didn't take much notice of the size of the card and used a normal A6 sized card, when it should have been a DL sized one, so I redid it this weekend. Using the colours from CR84FN32, I ended up making a card virtually the same LOL You can't actually see in the photo but I did stamp on the flowers, but the ink doesn't show up very well on the same colour card!

This is CR84FN's inspiration picture...

And here's my take on it...


Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Botanical Silhouettes (can't stop using this set this weekend) both from PTI

Papers: Yoyo Yellow, Mellow Moss Soft Sky DSP (all retired) from SU

Inks: Yoyo Yellow, Mellow Moss (both retired), Basic Gray all from SU

Accessories: Mellow Moss Ribbon (retired), Sweet Buttons Embosslit from SU, Beautiful Blooms Dies #3 from PTI, Buttons from Stash
