Crikey these weeks come round fast. It just seems like yesterday that I posted the card for the challenge, but of course a new week sees a new challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.
Along with the sketch we had to use the current “In Colours“. I chose to use a couple of colours that will be retiring come September. I will admit I have not used these colours as much as I should have.
Base Card – Poppy Parade – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half

I inked my image with Pear Pizzazz Ink & stamped direct onto the small piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
|Envelope & Inside Card…|
Using my Blender Pen, I coloured my image with Peach Parfait, inking my Pen a little at a time. Feeling that it needed a little bit of a lift, I then added dashes of Poppy Parade Ink & blended with my Blender Pen. The piece was run through the Bigshot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder & adhered to the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Ink.
I punched 3 small flowers using flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Set, worked out where I wanted to place them, applied Tombow to the back of each & adhered to the larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I adhered the piece of DSP to the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock &then to the large piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The whole lot was then run through the Bigshot & Embossing Folder – Square Lattice.
I adhered the piece of Ribbon across the width of the embossed piece, adhered the stamped piece to the top of the card with SU! Dimensionals, tied a bow, adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots, & adhered 3 Rhinestones to the DSP flowers
All in all a very easy card, once which I am really happy with. When making it, I didn’t realise that it would be so clean & white! My type of card!

Today’s card is taken from the sketch challenge over at Stamping 411 They always have a great sketch, not to mention the measurements!

Layer 3: 2-3/4 x 3-1/4″ – Rose Red
Layer 4: 2-5/8 x 3-1/8″ – Watercolour Paper
I stamped random images from “Growing Green” onto Wild Wasabi Cardstock, using Wild Wasabi Ink.
I stamped the same image onto Water Colour Paper in Chocolate Chip Ink & using my Aqua Painter, coloured the image with Wild Wasabi Ink. The flower image was stamped onto a scrap of Water Colour Paper again using Chocolate Chip Ink, coloured it with Rose Red Ink & my Aqua Painter. I cut around the flower & adhered it to the Water Colour Paper using SU Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink.

Ink – Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Watercolour Paper

…and thinking I had posted this card earlier for the challenge over at Stamping 411. Proves I have not had a very good day & need to get to bed.
Today’s sketch uses a simple technique that we sometimes forget about — Tearing! Tearing your cardstock or DSP adds great interest and texture and is a fast, easy and very inexpensive way to dress up a card or project!
1.Layer One — Cardbase cut at 5.5 x 8.5″, scored and folded
2.Layer Two — Cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25″
3.Layer Three — Cardstock of DSP cut at 4″ wide and torn at approximately 4″
4.Layer Four — DSP cut at 2.5 x 3.5″
5.Layer Five — Cardstock cut at 2.25 x 3.25″
For this card I pulled out my DSP Woodand Park, but wanting to use a pattern that I hadn’t used previously. That is the best thing about the DSP from SU®, it is double-sided. I love tearing, but am always very hesitant on tearing DSP, especially the ones you love so much, although once I start, there is no holding me back.
I stamped my image using Chocolate Chip Ink onto Watercolour Paper, grabbed my Aqua Painter & Garden Green Ink, & proceeded to colour the image. I then stamped a flower image directly onto Watercolour Paper using Chocolate Chip Ink. Cut it out & again coloured the image with Garden Green Ink & Aqua Painter. I adhered it to the card using SU Dimensionals. I used Chunky Sprinkles for the centre of the flower.
