SU! Unconvention

Whilst many SU! demonstrators were living it up in Sydney for Convention 2010, those of us who stayed behind took part in "Unconvention." This was set up as part of ESAD (a demonstrator on line forum) and this weekend consisted of three days of fab challenges. Thanks to this I was more creative over the weekend than I have been for ages & so have several cards/projects to post tonight.

This first card was for a sketch challenge:
Stamps: Pony party Ink/card: melon mambo, so saffron, tempting turquoise
This next card was for a clean & simple limited supplies challenge. It was to use only 2 inks, 1 layer of card and 1 stamp set & that's it! So this is what I came up with:Stamps: Flight of the butterfly Ink: melon mambo, kiwi kiss
And this is the same card "jazzed up" a little:
This next card was made for another sketch challenge using a Z fold card. A quick & fun style of card: Stamps: medallion, short & sweet Ink/card: melon mambo, white craft, sahara sand.

And finally, for now, we had a colour challenge using colours that suited a masculine card, so I made a card for father's day next month for my Dad in the UK:

Stamps: occasionally Ink/card: rich razzleberry, old olive, more mustard, choc chip.

Thanks so much for looking - it's about time I had something to show isn't it?!

Stamp with Us birthday card challenge

Here's a couple of cards I have made for the Stamp with Us birthday theme challenge and for a couple of little girls whose birthdays are approaching. This Pony Party stamp set is just lovely! It's also the first time I've used melon mambo & love how it goes with certainly celery, unfortunately the photo hasn't brought out the colours very well though.

Anyway, both cards are the same but in different colour combos:

Stamps: Pony party Ink & card: Melon mambo, rich razzleberry, so saffron, orchid opulence, regal rose, certainly celery Other: melon mambo & rich razzleberry polka dot ribbon, dazzling diamonds
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
