Sweet Summer

Colourful Birthday Wishes

When I first saw this weeks Utah Divas International Colour Challenge #21, I wasn’t sure what I was going to make.


As you can see there is a lot of colour going on there.


After a quick flick through the IB&C for a suitable stamp set, nothing really grabbed me for these colours. I was almost going to use my new Aviary set again but then realised that the Sweet Summer Sale-A-Bration set would work.


The layout for my card is a past Clean & Simple Sketch (Sketch #92).

So I’ve got the Tempting Turquoise in their with the Scallop circle and some highlights on the bird image. The Melon Mambo is the base card. Regal Rose for the flowers. Certainly Celery for the leaves and DSP and lastly the Bashful Blue on the bird image.

I’ve also used the So Happy For You Sale-A-Bration stamp set for the sentiment. That means I’ve now used them all.


Stamp sets: Sweet Summer, So Happy For You (Sale-A-Bration)
Card: Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Regal Rose, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Whisper White 5/8” Satin Ribbon, Blender Pen, Nestabilities (Non-SU)


Till next time….

Sweet Summer Mojo

Over on Stampin’ Up in Oz we have weekly challenges. Last week we had a colour challenge using Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie. I didn’t get around to creating something for it during that week but when I saw this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch I decided to complete 2 challenges in one and also use one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets called ‘Sweet Summer’.


Here’s the Mojo Monday Sketch 175.


And this is what I cam up with.


I’ve left a sentiment off this card for 2 reasons. One is, I’m not sure it needs it. Two is, I’m not sure where I’d position it.

Any ideas?? Or are you like me and not sure it needs one??


Stamp sets: Sweet Summer
Card: Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Watercolour Paper, Old Olive Patterns DSP (Brights Pattern Stack)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie 3/8” Taffeta ribbon, Circle Scissor Plus, Blender Pen, Big Shot, Lattice Embossing Folder.
