Just Add Ink Challenge # 8 – Easter

Now Easter is nearly upon us it’s time to pull out the one and only (yep, that’s right!) Easter stamp I own, lol.

The girls over at Just Add Ink set a theme challenge this week, but of course I’ve stuck to my card comfort zone! I did have a quick look to see if I had any photos from last Easter and contemplated doing a Scrap page, but alas, no photos, so I’ll make sure to rectify that this year! 😀

Here’s my card for this weeks challenge:

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :       Easter Bunny In Basket (Whipper Snapper), For Everything
Paper :          Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace, Bashful Blue Textured, Pretty In Pink, Whisper                       White, White Stampers Matt (The Stamp Trap)
Ink :              Staz On Black, Versamark
Other :          Hodgepodge Hardware, Designer Label Punch, Nestabilities, Copic Markers,                             Chicken Shack Font (2Peas)

Thanks for stopping by!

Inkspirations Sketch Challenge # 19

Told you I’d be back! 😀

Hopefully I’m going to get this post up in time – with all my faffing around last night, I missed the cut-off for the Just Add Ink challenge, but thankfully I have friends in high places (hi Amanda :D) who added me to the very end of the challenge, out of the running for judging – like that was ever going to matter, lol – but up and and recorded for all of history!

Anyway, onto Keesh’s Sketch Challenge for the week:

And my little old entry that I’m not happy with, but the set was all I had…

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :       Trendy Trees, Polka Dots
Paper :          Whisper White, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Parisian Breeze DSP (retired)
Ink :              Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Close To Cocoa
Ribbon :        Chocolate Chip
Other :          Very Vanilla Basic Jumbo Grommet, Chocolate Chip Jumbo Brad 5/16″

I really would have liked to use one of the trees from the Lovely As A Tree set, however it is up at my mum’s (we share things!!) and I wasn’t up for driving to her place at 9pm at night for 1 stamp. I’ve only stuck it down lightly, so it may get changed over in the next few days, if I do and it looks better, I’ll upload the new card for you to have a sticky at!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 7 – Colour

Hiya, I’m back again with a funky old colour scheme challenge from Amanda & Danielle over at Just Add Ink. Now I know a lot of people really aren’t into the Bold Brights, but I will put my hand up right here and now, and say that I actually don’t mind them! It might help that I’m the mum of 2 small kiddies, so alot of the cards that I make are childrens cards, but I reckon Bold Brights has a certain… well… character about it!

Anyway, enough of my dribble, here’s the colour challenge the girls threw down this week:

And my entry:

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :       Hello Again, Polka Dot
Paper :          Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Ink:               Green Galore
Ribbon :        So Saffron (retired)
Other :          Top Note Die, Curly Label Punch, Cutter Kit, Markers: Green Galore, So Saffron,                         Pink Passion

Seeya back tomorrow for my attempt at Keesh’s Sketch Challenge for the week!

Thanks for stopping by!

And now for something completely different…
