Magical Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #31

Back again!
I've been busy with challenges today! (Life is tough!!) This was fun as I've used the sketch to make a card for a sweet little soon-to-be-3 girl!
So, here's Makeesha's sketch:
And this is my card - such a cute stamp set for the girls!
Stamps: Pony Party Ink: So saffron, pretty in pink, bashful blue Card: Celery, pretty in pink, bashful blue, so saffron Other: celery grosgrain ribbon, scallop edge punch, polka dot embossing folder, nestabilities dies
Now I have to go and make a card for her 3 year old twin brother!

Just Add Ink #25


Here's the colour combo for this week's Just Add Ink challenge:

I did find it rather tricky to combine these colours, mainly the eggplant & rose red, however, I did finally make a card and ended up liking the way the colours went together!

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, On your birthday Ink/card: As for challenge plus watercolour card & versamark Other: Vanilla grosgrain & button, stampin' dimensionals, little leaves die, polka dot embossing folder, embossing powder, aqua painter.

PS: I have since sharpened my scissors & trimmed off the straggly ribbon bits! (not that anyone noticed, of course!!) ETA: I have just changed the photo of my card after redoing the ribbon - as it was bugging me!

Thanks for stopping by! Love Caroline - from blustery Perth, WA!

Just Add Ink #24

Happy Sunday to you!
This weeks Just Add Ink challenge is a sketch, which was really fun to do as it's this clear and simple design:
I've recently seen some lovely cards using the 'All A Flutter' butterfly, so I finally broke mine out of it's case and got to work!

So, here's my card:
And here's a close up of some detail, the butterflies are covered in crystal effects & mounted with dimensionals:
Stamps: All A Flutter, butterfly prints (sentiment - which is in the US catalogue, so hopefully will be in ours in September?!) Card/ink: Whisper white, taken with teal, brilliant blue (both retiring very soon!) Other: crystal effects, stampin' dimensionals, sewing machine - which is more a toy sewing machine really, hence the dodgy stitching!
Keep warm!
