Wonderfully Worn

Rustic Oak

I’m back with another card to share with you all, making it 3 posts today. Gotta love this rainy weather for something….lol

This time I’ve used the Utah Divas International Colour Challenge #22.

I found these colours a real challenge to use together and am not sure if I like this card yet or not. Maybe you could leave a comment and let me know what you think and/or offer suggestions?

I decided I’d use the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and do some ‘thumping’ using More Mustard and Tangerine Tango on the leaves for the Oak tree image.

Here’s my end result.


I’ve only used a little of the Tangerine Tango on the tree which you may not even be able to see in the image. I’ve also used Tangerine Tango on part of the sentiment. I found the Tangerine Tango to be a bit bright and a little out of place with the other ‘earthy’ colours.


Stamp sets: Lovely As A Tree, Upsy Daisy, Wonderfully Worn
Card: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Ink: More Mustard inkpad, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango & More Mustard Stampin’ Write Markers
Accessories: Hemp Twine.


Till next time…..

Challenges 2

Todays card is using FTL107, a colour combination from the Colour Coach ( I must say I use the new style one more than I ever did the old one) and a stamp set that has been heavily neglected for years and years. It’s actually my oldest Stampin’ Up stamp set which I owned before Stampin’ Up came to Australia. I wonder how many of you have guessed what it was before you saw my card??????

I’m sure many of you will be asking ‘why has she been heavily neglecting this set as it’s one of my most used?’

It’s not that I don’t like it I just thinks it’s because I feel it’s more a masculine set and as I’ve said I don’t make too many of those types of cards.

If you have some creations that aren’t ‘masculine’ using this set please leave me a comment with a link to your creation so you might inspire me to use it more often.

Stamp sets: Wonderfully Worn, Lovely As A Tree, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, On Your Birthday (insert)
Card: More Mustard, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Inks: More Mustard pad, Chocolate Chip & Garden Green markers.
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Word Window Punch.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think or with some ‘other’ ideas for this set not necessarily for males.

Till next time….
