We’ve had a lovely week of sunny weather here in Sydney this past week of school holidays, although we haven’t been able to do much as I have a sick child. Hubby’s just gone out with 2 of the girls for a while, another of my girls is at the movies with a friend, so that just leaves me at home with the sick child. She’s quite content watching her favourite shows and playing on the computer so I’m busy crafting.

I’ve just put together a quick card for two challenges.

First up is Dynamic Duos with their colour challenge DD#60.

I’ve put this together with the Sketch challenge CTS #35 from CAS(E) this Sketch.

For my card I’ve used 2 new stamp sets, Gorgeous Grunge and Hello, Lovely.

I have coloured the sentiment stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers and then this has been mounted to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Gorgeous Grunge set is great for adding some background and it makes for such a quick card.

I hope you like what I have created.

Stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello Lovely
Card: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
Ink: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit Inkpads & Markers
Accessories: Basic Black 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon.

Here’s another angle.

Inkspirational EOTWE #21

I’m back today to share my creation with you for this weeks Inkspirational Sketch Challenge.

Here is the Sketch again.

Don’t you just love it when you see a Sketch and you know straight away what you want to create with it?

That’s what happened with this one for me.

Even my colour combination was easy to select as I’m trying to use up some of my soon to be retiring DSP and Cardstock colours.

I chose the Twitterpatted DSP and combined this with Riding Hood Red (soon to be retired), Island Indigo (soon to be a standard colour) and Whisper White.

Here’s what I created.


I’ve woven the DSP strips to show the 2 different patterns and then layered this onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ve then punched 4 Bitty Butterflies in Island Indigo and added some bling. These have then been added again using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is a retired stamp set called ‘Heard from the Heart’ ( I just can’t part with this stamp set) which is stamped in Riding Hood Red.

Here’s another view showing the raised front pieces and the inside.


I hope you like what I have created using this weeks Sketch. Would love to have some feedback from you.

There is still time for you to participate if you haven’t already. The challenge will close Tuesday at 12noon CST (which is 3am Wednesday in Sydney).
