Blended Flower Patch...

Hi there!


I'm excited to be playing along with Just Add Ink today as their Guest Designer! This week they've got a fab sketch for us to play along with...


I had a flower that I had stamped and coloured a while ago and it seemed like the perfect time to use it with this sketch...


The solid flower (from Flower Patch) was stamped with Real Red ink on Whisper White then I shaded over each petal with Cherry Cobbler blendabilities to give some more dimension. I added some leaves cut with the Flower Frenzy die and a sentiment from Hey You.


Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Flower Patch, Hey You
Ink: Real Red, Stazon
Paper: Deck the Halls dsp, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler blendabilities
Accessories: Pearls
Tools: Project Life framelits, Flower Fair framelits, Flower Frenzy bigz die


Make sure you stop by the Just Add Ink challenge blog and check out all the inspiration from the design team!

Project Hipster Birthday...

Hiya!


It's time for another ColourQ challenge and we've got another fun combo this week...


I was running short on time so I pulled out a Project Life card that had similar colours on it and decided to go with a birthday card for a young person...


I've been aquainting myself with the 'hipster' look in the last week (long story!) as I didn't have a clue what it was and apparently the nerdy glasses are a big thing in this particular fashion so when I looked at the Project Life sticker sheet and spotted the glasses I knew I had to use them! I added Crystal Effects to the lenses for an authentic look.


Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Big News, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive
Paper: PL 4x3" card & sticker (Happiness Is), Old Olive, Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Crystal Effects
Tools: Envelope Punch Board, Confetti Stars punch


I used the Paper Players sketch to help me this week...

Celebrate the Season

Hello!

http://stampercamper.com/

I'm playing along with the Create with Connie & Mary Holiday Collection blog hop this month! Each Saturday the team will be sharing a Christmas/Winter themed project with you. You should have made your way here from Claire Broadwater's blog and seen her wonderfully elegant Christmas card (if you have just stumbled upon this hop though, you can click the pic above to take you back, or the link at the bottom of this post to take you to the start of the hop).


I decided to share a little something I made at a SU team training event a few weeks ago, using the fabulous Confetti Stars Punch  and the Endless Wishes stamp set...


I love the combination of Lost Lagoon and silver mixed with Kraft cardstock - manages to look elegant and slightly rustic at the same time! I created the background using Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Silver Encore inks then added a few punched stars from Dazzling Details glimmer paper. I punched a Lost Lagoon strip with the Confetti Stars punch, glued it down the side and then added some more glimmer stars in some of the punched out shapes for a bit of extra sparkle. The greeting is one of the frames from Four Frames combined with a couple of the sentiments from Endless Wishes (one of the great features of photopolymer is the ability to bend the stamps on the block!).


Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Endless Wishes, Four Frames
Ink: Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Silver Encore
Paper: Kraft, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Dazzling Details glimmer paper
Accessories: Silver 1/8" ribbon
Tools: Decorative label punch, Confetti Stars punch

Starburst Film Birthday...

Hiya!

So I messed up a bit this week in that I prepared a card for next week's challenge thinking it was this week's and only realised on Sunday evening, by which time I had no time to photograph any new card with daylight - aargh! So I made something, photographed it as best as I could, but it's not brilliant unfortunately. Anyway, here are THIS week's ColourQ colours...



And here's my Monday evening last-minute attempt...


I don't do Halloween so I was trying to come up with alternative ways of using these colours and I thought these ones would be good for a child's birthday, so that's what I went with.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Everyday Occasions kit, Big News, Something to Say, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Black chevron ribbon, Brights candy dots
Tools: On Film framelits

Mame sure you check out the fab creations from the rest of the design team this week!
