Two Challenges, One Card

Can you believe that I have never created a card that fit into two challenges?

Well today I decided to take the plunge and play along with both Colour INKspiration’s Colour Challenge and Can You Case It’s Sketch Challenge.

Here is my card:


How I made this card?

  • Thick Whisper White Card Base A6;
  • Background is 6×4 Project Life card from the Good Vibes Project Life Card Collection, I cut 1/4in off the long side;
  • The PL card is embossed with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder;
  • The Square piece is Mint Macaron cut to 7 1/16in, layered on top of that is Pink Pirouette cut to 7in;
  • The sentiment is from Super Duper Stamp Set, stamped in Pink Pirouette. On a piece of Daffodil Delight Card Stock I stamped the same sentiment in Daffodil Delight and fussy cut the banner section out;
  • The balloons are from the same stamp set and are stamped in Tip Top Taupe on Tip Top Taupe;
  • I finished off the card with Urban Underground Embellishments.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

Colour Challenge – CYCI#148

So I am back to blogging and to kick it off I decided on the Can You Case It? Colour Challenge.  I used this as inspiration to make my Grandma’s birthday card.   17098700_10211646694578325_3645540853983100779_n

Yellow has never been a top pick in the colour department so it was a great challenge for me and as for turquoise well Bermuda Bay has always been one of my favourites.

Here is my card:


I used the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set.  The background is stamped on Shimmery White, in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.

The Lace Doilies are from the Falling In Love Suite.  I inked this in Daffodil Delight, then Versamarked and Clear Embossed.

The circle on the doily is die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Finally I cut the flowers with the Succulents Framelits Dies.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,


You’re Super Duper! #CYCI143

So I am here with my first new catalogue inspiration post, showing off my Super Duper Birthday Card.  To make this card I played along with Can You Case It? Sketch Challenge.


Here is my card:


My colour palette for this card is Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.

How I made this card?

  • Card base is A6 Thick Whisper White;
  • The background is Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 148 x 95mm;
  • Using re-inkers for each colour mentioned above on a piece of plastic packaging and water I used them to randomly colour the page.  I used my heat tool speed up the drying process;
  • I ran the background piece through the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder;
  • I stamped the sentiment twice once in Daffodil Delight and once in Melon Mambo.  I fussy out the whole Daffodil Delight and just the ‘Super Duper’ on the Melon Mambo;
  • I stamped the balloon from the same stamp set in Rich Razzleberry, fussy cut that out too;
  • Then I adhered everything down with Tear & Tape and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the sentiment.


I just love how this card turned out. The shimmer that you can see on the background piece is just gorgeous!!

Until next time… Happy stampin’
