Thank You

I’m back with one last card for today. For this card I’ve combined 2 challenges.

First up is the ColorLab Color Challenge #31.


Then there is the Sketch Challenge CCMC140 from Create with Connie & Mary.

And here’s what I created….

Stamp sets: Elegant Thank You
Card: Peach Parfait, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Subtles Patterns Stack – Baja Breeze & Pink Pirouette
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: 2 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/4” Circle  Punch, Whisper White 3/8” Taffeta ribbon.

I’m quite happy how this one turned out. Initially I was going to use the ‘For You Flower’ stamp but I wasn’t happy with the look. I think this is simple but nice.

What do you think?

Till next time….

Star Birthday

This weeks Colour Round Up Challenge was just that for me. A real Challenge.

Here are the colours we were given.

Color Round Up #24







I really like all these colour but I’m not sure about putting them together.  I actually struggled with ‘what stamp set to use’.

I ended up selecting the Seeing Stars stamp set along with a Clean & Simple Sketch #3. I think it was the sketch that actually determined the stamp set….lol

I’m not sure I totally like the card I created yet but I managed to make something at least with the colours.

This is my end result.

So what do you think? Does it look okay? Are you stumped by the colour combination too or is that just me?

Stamp sets: Well Scripted (Summer Mini), Seeing Stars
Card: Crumb Cake, Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, In Colour DSP Pack – Peach Parfait (Hostess Level 1)
Ink: Versamark, Cajun Craze
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Large Star Punch, Small Star Punch (retired)

Till next time…

Another Just Add….

I’m back with another card for this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge #58 but this time it’s a ‘Just Add Danielle’ creation.

Here’s Danielle’s card that I chose to CASE.

My CASE of this card also fit this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge #71 which is to use Black & White with just a splash of 1 other colour.

I’ve changed the So Swirly wheel that Danielle used on the top of her card for the Friendly Words wheel and to add my splash of colour I changed the Basic Black taffeta ribbon to Marina Mist taffeta ribbon.

It’s a very quick & clean looking card. I did use the Wheel Guide on the top but that’s just because I’m a little ‘anal’ and like things straight so I played it safe……lol

Stamp sets: Occasional Greetings, Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Marina Mist 3/8” Taffeta ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide (optional)

Edited to add: This card was picked as a Just Add Ink Top Pick for the week and I also received a ‘The Cream In Our Coffee’ award from The Play Date Cafe.

Till next time…
