have used the sketch over at the CAS(E) this sketch challenge and used the recipe at Colour Q which screamed Male card I did substitute white with vanilla.  I had my Open Sea stamp set out for a work shop and I love this set but don't use it as often as I should.

Card - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Pool Party
Square Lattice embossing folder
Stamp - Open Sea
Ink - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party
Distressing tool

Cas(e)this sketch and Play Date Cafe

 
























My second post today and for this post I combined the Sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog with the recipe over at the Play Date Cafe Blog.  I first embossed the butterfly using Pool Party embossing powder.  I then used my aqua painter to paint colour into the design.

For this card I used the following products from Stampin UP

Card - Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink - Marina Mist, Blushing Bride and Versa Mark
Stamp - Swallowtail


Case Study and Just Add Ink

 























I haven't done either of these challenges for a while so here is my take using the card inspiration over a tthe Case Study Challenge Blog and using the colours over at the Just Add Ink challenge blog.  I first stamped the lower part of the white with the Parlour Print background stamp and using the scoring pad I scored a square pattern.

For this card I used the following products from Stampin UP

Card - Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Ink - So Saffron
Stamps - Parlour Prints, Pretty Petites (Sale-a-bration)
Punch - Square, Petite curly Label
White bakers twine
A button
Simply Scoring Pad

Clean and Simple

 


I am struggling with my mojo at the moment after being out of action for a while.  I wanted to do a simple valentine card and decided the sketch over at the Clean and Simple Blog would be the inspiration for my card, We had to use an image with the triangular shape and I thought the Eiffel Tower fitted perfectly.  I tried to take a photo that would highlight the glimmer ink.  It does continue all the way but I could only get the photo show a section.

For this card I used the following products from Stampin UP

Card - Raspberry Ripple, Very Vanilla
Ink -Illuminate Glimmer, Early espresso and Versa Mark
Stamps - Artistic Etchings, En Francais
Pool Party Embossing Powder
Some Pool Party Ribbon
