Friends

I’ve managed to sqeeze in another challenge card.

I’m using the ColorLab Color Challenge #32.

ColorChallenge32

and have combined it with this week’s Inkspiration Challenge which is Challenge #61.

I’m using the Great Friend stamp set today which I love but haven’t used in ages.

Here’s what I created.

Supplies:
Stamp set: Great Friend
Card: Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Brights Patterns Stack – Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Versamark, So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Whisper White 3/8” Taffeta ribbon, Circle Scissor Plus, Basic Jewels – Pearls.

Till next time….

Thanks

I’ve had a busy few days with not much time for creating although I’m not sure my ‘mojo’ is fully back as yet from that break I had anyway. Hopefully my mojo will fully return and I”ll get back to more regular posting soon.

I have managed to sit down this morning and create one card which is for 2 challenges this week.

First up is the Colour Challenge #25 from Rubber Redneck.

Color Round Up # 25

Next is the Sketch Challenge #59 over at Just Add Ink.

I always seem to struggle when using Pacific Point. It’s not that I don’t like the colour, it’s just that I find it very bright. With that said I’m happy with my end result with just little bits of Pacific Point showing through.

I have used the Pacific Point as my base card and layers. To this I’ve added some Peach Parfait Patterns DSP along with some Melon Mambo Patterns DSP and tied some Old Olive Taffeta ribbon around.

The main images are from the Level 2 Hostess set – Apple Blossom. The sentiment is from the stamp set – Taking Care of Business. I’ve also added a small rhinestone to the flower for a bit of sparkly but it doesn’t show up real well in this photo.

This card will be heading to one of the lovely ladies who has already placed an order to help me reach my sales goal for the end of the month. She’s also in the draw to WIN a FREE BIG SHOT. There is still time to place your order and be in the running and you don’t have to be a regular customer (nor do you need to become a regular customer of mine) to be eligible, you just need to live in Australia. To find out more, check out this post.

I hope to be back later with some more creations so till then……

Just For You

Over on Utah Divas International this week their Colour Challenge #26 has so many colours to it I wasn’t sure what I’d be able to come up with.

That’s 6 colours and of course I decided to add a little Whisper White to my card also.

I don’t think I’ve seen a colour challenge with so many colours in it before.

I was a little unsure if I’d be able to make something I’d be happy with for this challenge, but after looking for a stamp set and coming up short on ideas I went with something a little different for me.

My focal point of the card is not stamping.

Here’s what I ended up creating.

I’ve used the Blossom Party Big Shot die.

I managed to get 4 of the 6 colours into the one flower and then included the last 2 as the base for the card.

The card layout is from Clean & Simple and is #123. I’ve reversed the sentiment and main image to the sketch though.

So what do you think? Did I pull it off?

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Just Believe
Card: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Brights Pattern Stack – Daffodil Delight
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Blossom Party Die, Big Shot, Basic Jewels – Rhinestones.

Till next time…..
