More vintage holly

This is for challenge 49 on Crafty Pad:

Again I've used the colours required for Copic colour 43 (well, near enough!) - I used the Personal impressions stamp again.

It's hard to see here, but the holly on the left is silver.

This is good too for:

Alphabet 'I is for ink' (copics)
Paper Maniac Inspiration: 'bling' with the option of using pearls - there are 6 on this card.
Theme Thursday: 'vintage'
Charisma cardz 49: 'red, green an a choice of either white or silver' (white and silver here)
Creative card crew 40: 'gold or silver'

Papers are again Brenda Pinnick and Dovecraft ribbon across the bottom.

Vintage holly

This card is for the sketch challenge on Just us girls week 10:

This week's Copic colour challenge 43 calls for us to use BV23 greyish lavender, R59 cardinal and YG63 pea green. I lighted coloured the greyish lavender over light grey card - it doesn't really show too much. The red and green used for the holly are the nearest other colours I have. The stamped image is Personal impressions.

This card has everything called for in Peachy Keen 17 recipe:
  • polka dot(s)
  • a border
  • stripe(s)
  • stamped image(s)
As copics are alcohol ink pens, this is good for Alphabet 'I is for ink'.

The challenge this week on Paper Maniac Inspiration is 'bling' with the option of using pearls - there are 6 on this card. And the colours are right for Cupcake Inspiration 36.

The script and stamp/postmark on the stamped image gives a vintage feel to the card, which is good for this week's Theme Thursday.


Golden window

Today's challenge 117 on No time to stamp is ' alter a purchased card'.

The 'window' of this card was rescued from one that was received a couple of years ago - I put the bauble background behind it and mounted on to gold foil card before mounting on to the pearlised card base.

It's also for:

Creative card crew 40: 'gold or silver' (gold surrounds and snowflakes etc)
Colour create 33: 'lilac or purple with aqua, black and white'
Little red wagon 6: 'inspiration from a photo' (the colours are different, but I was inspired by the baubles)

Bright pink greetings

This card is for sketch 44 on Card Patterns this week:

Also for:

Ildi Co 6: 'black and bright'
Papertake: 'red and green must not be seen'
Creative inspirations 38: 'non-traditional colours' (no green or red)

I love bright pink, black and white together - this was a good way of using up some of the pieces I've still got left from my DCWV papers.

Turquoise and snow

This is for Friday Sketchers 81:

I've used BG eskimo kisses paper for the background squares. As the main colour is turquoise, this is good for the first challenge on ECP.

It's also for these challenges:

Fun with shapes and more 32: 'snowmen' (must use something cut - all the squares were cut)
Lots to do 49: 'snow'

Etsy inspired 65: 'so stinking sweet' - inspired by this 'frosty musk soap':



Pink and green greetings

This is a card for FTL71 on Clean and Simple:



I've used DCWV papers and chose a bauble that was white with silver foiling - I used green chalk ink to colour it and the same with the sentiment.

The predominant colours are pink and green, which are right for La-la land 16. I think it might just about be OK too for Play date cafe 08: 'red, lime green, bright pink (yes, there is a bit of red in that paper across the top).
