Flowerpot Birthday

 - by OttawaMom

It’s a new week, which means it’s time to play with a whole new crop of challenges! I have to say I am enjoying every minute of creating with all of these challenges – it’s certainly nice to have my mojo back.

I created today’s card for the new sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

PPA212 My card:


It wasn’t until I sat down to right this post, that I realized I used the wrong orange on my card.  It is Tangerine Tango in the DSP but I used one of the new In-Colours, Tangelo Twist. Thankfully they are so close in colour, that I think it still works. Besides I love that new Stitched Satin Ribbon and really wanted to use it!

Until tomorrow, thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Flowerpot DSP

Ink: Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride, Tangelo Twist

Stamp Sets: Flower Shop, Remembering Your Birthday

Tools & Embellishments: Pansy Punch, Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin Ribbon, Pearl Basic Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Super Hero Birthday!

 - by OttawaMom

It was a super rainy Sunday here yesterday, a perfect day for sitting in my craft room and playing along with a few challenges.

I have been looking for the perfect excuse to ink up the new Calling All Heroes stamp set and thought the colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch at CAS – Colours & Sketches, were the perfect match for one.



It’s a fun stamp set, and was perfect for creating a Kid birthday card to add to my stash. But I did find some of the stamps hard to use, since they are so itty, bitty! Guess it will just take some more practice!

I would also like to link my card up with the “Anything Goes” challenge at Stampin’ Royalty.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight

Ink: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black

Stamp Sets: Calling All Heroes

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Squares Collection Framelits, Stars Decorative Mask, Stampin’ Dimensionals


Many Thanks!

I don’t very often give you two cards for the price of one, but since a couple of the challenges I played with on the weekend, end today, I am bringing you two quick posts, so I can make the deadlines!

First up is the card I created using this week’s colour challenge at Pals Paper Arts, paired with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
