Lots of Love for Colour Me…!

Since yesterday was Back-to-School for most people, I think this week’s inspiration photo, at Colour Me….!, is very appropriate.  This is our Striking Week and we are working with Real Red and Lost Lagoon.

Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-011My card:


I went with a heart theme and was pleasantly surprised at how well our two challenge colours went with it!

For the layout of my card, I decided to play along with this week’s challenge at RetroSketches and used their fabulous sketch!

The challenge will end on September 14th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules, to keep things fair – you can check them out here.

Pretty Petals for Stampin’ Celebration!

Happy Monday everyone! It’s time for another fun challenge at Stampin’ Celebration and this time we have a beautiful inspiration photo to inspire you with.

My card:


I love the combination of the gold, green and white and since those were the colours I used for my own wedding, I was very inspired to do a wedding card!  The sketch is from the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.


Our challenge is open until Friday, March 27th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

Endless Birthday Cake!

Happy Thursday Stampers! It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time, the sky is the limit as there are no “Toppings” options.

My card:


I am absolutely in love with the new Painted Petals DSP, that is in the Occasions catalogue and thought this particular pattern was very playful and perfect for a birthday card!

The cake image was stamped with StazOn ink in black and then I coloured it in using the Blender Pen, for a softer look.  Then I added a touch of the gold glitter for the flames on the candles; who doesn’t love a little sparkle on their birthday!

The inspiration for my card, comes from this week’s sketch at The Paper Player’s.
