Friday’s Case…..

… is one I found on Pinterest & also the one we created in Crafty Creations this afternoon.
I finally managed to dig out some of the gorgeous new DSP from the new Catalogue – Venetian Romance.  Along with the new DSP, I used Papaya Collage to finish my card off.

The ladies in the class used retired DSP along with a retired Stamp Set.

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been set by Gwen.  She has been very kind to us this week as there is no sketch, but we are requested to create a Card, 3-D Project or even a Scrapbook Page with a “Sympathy Theme“.

I actually completed my card for a couple of challenges ago, but when I went to post it, realised that I had the wrong challenge.  I have since used the card, so it is no longer in my possession.

I love the little rose which is in Stamp Set “Papaya Collage“.  It seems to suit any occasion & I have used it a lot of late.  In fact this is one of the cards we created in our Stamping Classes this month.

I love the clean simple look of the card.

I am a little late with posting my card for the current challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations, but I suppose it is better late than never.

Our challenge this week has been set by myself & with Mother’s Day coming up, I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to create a card with Mother’s Day in mind.  You also have the option of creating a card for a female, if you prefer.

My card was created using Whisper White & Regal Rose – perfect colour for mums & females.  I usually go for something non-traditional in colour but decided to go with all white with just a small touch of a contrasting colour.

Yep, I’ve even used my favourite Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots for part of my card, while the bottom section, I decided to randomly score a few lines with my Simply Scoring Tool. 

While creating the card, I sort of decided to punch a section from the embossed card & then have the sentiment & a couple of images sneaking out from behind.  I really like the final result.

Yes, Sunny Challenges is back & ready for another year.  We hope you will be able to join in & play along.  This year, we are trialling the challenges as fortnightly instead of the weekly.  We would love to hear what you think of the idea. 

Our first challenge has been brought to us by Kris, who has been very easy on us as there is no sketch, products, etc to use.  Let your mind go wild, as it is a blank canvas.  All we have to do is create a card, 3-D project, scrapbook page, etc as long as it is celebrating “Birthdays“…..

Close Up…

I decided to use a stamp set that had been on my Wish List since I first saw it in the catalogue & was a “must have”.  As usual other “stuff” got in the way.  Anyhow, I’ve had this set for sometime, but this is the first time it has seen ink…..

I am hoping that this year I will be able to enter a few more challenges, so with that in mind, I’ve also created this card for the challenge over at Clean & Simple

Embossed Papaya Collage…..

I’m a little late in posting this which means the challenge is probably over.  I have been unable to post photos to my blog.  Have all the information entered but no photos – but I think I have finally found a way, fingers crossed.  If this works, then I can actually catch up with my posts.

This week, I found a little time to play along with a challenge.  It seems like forever that I’ve played along with any challenges.  It also come at the right time as I needed a card for a birthday that is coming up in the next couple of weeks.

The challenge is over at Paper Craft Crew Challenge   Be sure to pop on over & play along if you get the chance.
