Awash with Flowers

Some challenge cards using retiring stamp sets.

I was hoping to have shared something over the weekend but instead I was cutting up all the cardstock for the 350 Father’s Day cards I make for my youngest daughters school. I now have it all cut, the 2nd layer adhered to the base card and now just have to stamp the images and attach that piece of card and I’ll be all done. Well I’m sure it won’t be as quick as it sounds but I’m making headway at least and will hope to finish them off by the end of Stamp camp 17th – 19th August. That will have them done 10 days earlier than they are needed.

I have created this morning and made 2 cards between 3 challenges. Unfortunately the colour combination that I was using is for a challenge that closed before I had my cards done. Oh well, I’ll still share that challenge with you.

Challenges I’ve used are the colorQ Challenge #148, Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #77 and Sketch Frenzy Friday SFF080312.

My first card is using the colorq challenge and Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch.

Supplies:

Stamp set: Cottage Garden (retiring)
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Poppy Parade (retiring)
Cardstock: Poppy Parade (retiring), Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette – Subtles Patterns Stack DSP
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die Set, Wide Oval Punch, Whisper White 1/4” Grosgrain ribbon (retiring)

I wasn’t too sure about this card so decided to make a second card using the same colour challenge.

Here’s my 2nd card using the same colour challenge but changing the sketch to Friday Frenzy Challenge. This one also fits the Come and Get It Challenge of Adult birthday so I’m going to enter this one there too.

Supplies:

Stamp sets: Awash With Flowers, Short & Sweet (both retiring)
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango, Poppy Parade (retiring)
Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette – Subtles Patterns Stack DSP
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Whisper White 1/4” Grosgrain Ribbon (retiring), Silver ribbon buckle (retired Silver Hodgepodge hardware)

I think I like this 2nd card better. What do you think??

Till next time….

 

Elegant Soiree Tissue Box & Card update

I recently posted pictures of the Tissue Box cover I’d made as a gift and am finally back to show you the matching card that goes with it. The main image used on this card I initially intended on using on the Tissue Box cover but it turned out to be too large. I’ve used the ‘Awash with Flowers’ Stamp set.

This is the complete gift. Handmade part that is.

A closer look at the full card and inside.

I’m really happy with how this all turned out and I’m sure the recipient will love it too.

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Awash with Flowers, Occassional Greetings (Hostess Level 3 set)
Card: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP

I was so happy with how my Blueberry Crisp Tissue Box Cover turned out I decided I’d make another one for a gift I needed. Instead of making it the same though I chose to use the Elegant Soiree DSP along with the Awash with Flowers stamp set.

This is how it turned out.

I’m happy with how this one turned out too but I still think I like my Blueberry Crisp one more…….
