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?

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…..

Refreshing Brocade

The card I’m sharing with you for this post I’ve made for 2 challenges.

The first one is a colour challenge from Cards & Things Challenges and is Colour Challenge #69.

While trying to decide on a stamp set to use for this colour combination I remembered a ‘new to me’ Challenge site my good friend Meighan mentioned and that is SU Only Challenges. This week the challenge on their site is SUO Challenge #14 – Favourite Retired Stamp set.

I have a few retired stamp sets that I just don’t wish to part with, however I never seem to use them. Well this challenge fit perfectly to do just that.

So what set did I choose to use??

The gorgeous ‘Brocade Basics’ stamp set.

Most of the card is Marina Mist & Old Olive but there is a layer of Certainly Celery in there to fit with the Colour Challenge.

So is this one of your favourite retired sets too?

Stamp sets: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Brocade Basics (retired)
Card: Marina Mist Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Marina Mist
Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Word Window Punch, Basic Jewels – Pearls.

Till next time….

Bashful Bliss

I’m here today with a challenge card for Scrapmaster’s Paradise Color Combos.

I was a little unsure of this combination having Cherry Cobbler & Real Red together. Initially I was going to add just a touch of Real Red but I ended up with just a touch of Cherry Cobbler instead.

I’m not totally happy with this card but I’ll let you make up your own minds.

I’ve added ‘clusters’ of Pearls in the centre of the flowers which unfortunately you can’t see overly well in the photos. I’ve also added some to the centre of the butterfly too.

Stamp sets: Bliss (Sale-A-Bration)
Card: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Basic Jewels – Pearls.

Till next time…..
