Flowery Cards and a Star!

Just a few more cards I did this week...

This first one is a new technique for me - the telescoping card. I love this technique and will definitely be using it again. I used the colours from Color Throwdown's Challenge #154 - Old Olive, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray.


Stamps: Year of Flowers: Marigolds, Big & Bold Wishes both from PTI

Papers: Basic Gray, So Saffron both from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Old Olive all from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon (retired) from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Gold heart brads from stash

My next card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #60 and old CC76 to use More Mustard, Bordering Blue and Old Olive. I wanted some solid flowers to stamp my main panel with but I don't have any WMS ones so I used one of the doily stamps from Large Doily which I thought kind of looked like a flower. What do you think?!


Stamps: Large Doily, Frame It, Say It With Style all from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Bordering Blue (retired), More Mustard, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Bordering Blue (retired), More Mustard, Old Olive all from SU

Accessories: Labels 4 Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug, More Mustard Ribbon (retired) from SU, Clear Gems from stash

My last flowery card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #180 for the sketch and old CC89 to use Bashful Blue, Cranberry Crisp (subbed with Purely Pomegranate) and Old Olive.


Stamps: Four of A Kind, Around and About Sentiments both from PTI

Papers: Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate (retired), Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate (retired), Bashful Blue all from SU

Accessories: Bashful Blue buttons (retired) from SU, Green Baker's Twine from Martha Stewart

And my final card doesn't fit with any of the others I made this week, so it's just a bit random in this post to be honest! This one is for A Passion for Papertrey's For the Boys Challenge and Colour Create's Challenge #77 to use blue, green, red, white and brown. Definitely a boys' colour combo there! I decided to spruce it up a bit and make a shaker card and I spritzed my Cherry Cobbler layer with some Smooch to give it a bit more of a shimmer as well. I love how this one came out!


Stamps: Star Prints, Birthday Bash Sentiments both from PTI

Papers: Brilliant Blue (retired), Cherry Cobbler both from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Old Olive, Soft Suede, Brilliant Blue (retired), Cherry Cobbler all from SU

Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Button, Baja Breeze Chunky Glitter, Linen Thread all from SU, Star dies from PTI, Red sequins from stash, Acetate from stash, Cherry Ice Smooch Spritz

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
