Deconstruction Challenge

Here is the card I made using the sketch over at the Deconstruction Challenge.  I went outside me comfort zone as far as colour combos are concerned and surprised myself on how some things look OK together lol.  I shall endeavour to do this more often.

For this card I used the following
Card - Old Olive, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla

Sweet Stop and Play Date Cafe

This is a card I made using the Sketch over at the Sweet Stop Sketch Blog and I combined it with the recipe Challenge over at the Play Date Cafe.  I must admit to struggling with both challenges this week, the Sweet Stop because of the Stamped background, I not sure why as I have done this many a time.  I settled with stamping using the glass block with ink on it, I hope this counts lol.  The colours also posed a challenge for me but I am happy I pushed on as relatively pleased with the result and it does you go to push yourself sometimes.

For this card I used the following products from stampin up.

Card - Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink - Bright Blue, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist
Stamp - Up Up and away
Punch - create a cup cake for the clouds.

This is week 2 for Karola Witczak over at the Case Study Challenge this week.  I was a bit scared by this card but I took inspiration from the colours and the halved sunflower.  I am actually very happy with my card and I think it looks very elegant (even if i do say so myself).

For this card I used the following products from Stampin Up.

Card - Whisper White, Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade, River Rock
Ink - White, Cherry Cobbler
Stamp - Parlour Prints
Big Shot - Stripes embossing folder, Little Leaves sizzlett
Punch - 2 different sized Scallop circles and circle
Other - Antique Brad, Crystals

To make the sunflower I cut in each dip of the scallop and trimmed and tincey bit off to make petals.
For the Diamond pattern, I inked up the striped folder and embossed it 2 ways onto the card stock.
