Sharing on a Sunday

I've got a couple of girly cards and a couple of men's card on this post for you.

This first one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #3 for September and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #89 to be inspired by the divine looking cupcakes photo.

Stamps: Carpe Cupcake, Framed Wishes, Fancy Florals Remixed all from Verve Stamps
Papers: Blushing Bride, Early Espresso both from Stampin' Up, Basic Gray Carpella Patterned Papers, White from stash (trying to use all my old cheapy stuff up!)
Inks: Early Espresso from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Early Espresso Satin Ribbon from Stampin' Up, Button from stash, Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel

My next card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #85 to just add baby, Play Date Café's Challenge #99 to use white, lilac and lemon and for Papertrey Princess Mara's challenge to use a banner. I don't have any PTI baby sets so a banner is an ideal way round that one! This is the colour swatch from Play Date Café.

And here's my card for it.

Stamps: Banner Builder, Outlines Alphabet both from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Pale Plum (retired), Perfect Plum both from Stampin' Up, Springtime Patterned Paper from Echo Park, White Hammered Card from stash
Inks: Pale Plum (retired) from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Sizzlits Beautiful Wings Embosslit from Stampin' Up, Pearls from Papermania, Banner Builder Dies from Papertrey Ink

My next one is for Color Throwdown's Challenge #159 to use Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black and for old Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #25 for the sketch.

Stamps: Motorcycle, Curly Cute both from Stampin' Up
Papers: Pacific Point cs & DSP from Brights Stack, Cherry Cobbler cs & DSP from Regals Stack, Basic Black, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up
Inks: Basic Black, Pacific Point, SU Markers in Basic Black, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Sizzlits Sweet Buttons Embosslit Die

And my final card for today is for The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #79 to make a masculine card using the colours inspired by the photo below. I wanted to use stripes to represent the books and when I saw this sketch in my Waltzing Mouse sketches to do file (Sketch Challenge #16), I knew I just had to use it!

This is the inspiration photo

And this is my card for it

Stamps: Birthday Bash Sentiments from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Really Rust (retired), Basic Black both from Stampin' Up, Seaside Collection Patterned Papers from Kaisercraft
Inks: Basic Black from Stampin' Up
Accessories: Silver brads from stash
