And again. Click here for today's first post, and here for my second post.
This is my third card for the Penny Black For Family challenge:
Sorry to bombard you, but it's closing in a few hours, and I've been having a Penny Black Fest today. As I've been stamping onto designer paper, I thought I'd also enter this one into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to stamp onto designer paper:
Penny Black Stamps: 40-236 Garden Assistant, 30-109 Nature's Wishes
Penny Black designer paper: Madison
That's it. No more from me today, so you can enjoy the rest of your day in peace :)
Me again (click here for today's first post), with another card for the Penny Black For Family challenge,
but this time using the colour scheme from Dynamic Duos:
Penny Black stamps: 40-234 Fluffy Passenger, 30-109 Nature's Wishes
Penny Black designer papers: Madison
This dog's dressed to party its way through a few challenges! First up, Less is More, where the challenge is to create a card with a cat or dog on it.
Next to the party is the colour scheme for the ensemble, provided by The Play Date Cafe:
Maroon ... Poppy ... Soft Jade
Atmosphere is provided by CAS(E) This Sketch:
The heart's in the right place (!), but a tad smaller, and the bubbles have turned into splatters.
And now she's ready to rock up to Penny Black's challenge about family. Anyone who owns a dog will know just how big a part of the family they are.

This week's challenge at Simon Says is Flower Power:
The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to stamp on designer paper:
The sentiment words are from various Paper Smooches sentiments, stamped onto designer paper, edged with fineliner then cut out. I've used the same DP as a mat onto the card base.
And I've used the colour scheme from ColourQ. The two larger flowers are coloured red around the edges, the others are coloured coral which is slightly pinker than Calypso Coral, and my celery certainly isn't, but those nice people at ColourQ are very forgiving if you don't have the exact colours.

I love Therese's inspiration card for the Muse challenge. It's not specifically a baby card, but that's what it reminded me of, and that's what I wanted to make. I swapped the stripes to the central panel, and paper-pieced three babygros and placed them so that they look like they're hanging on the pink line.

This week's One Layer Wednesday is hosted by Heather, who has challenged us to create a card with a border as the image.
I've used an image from my new Penny Black winnings. I stamped the image repeatedly across the bottom of the card so that the curved base didn't show, then coloured with Tombows, deliberately leaving random white space in the flowers. Then I drew in some grass, and edged all the flowers with a beige Tombow to soften the scene. I thought I'd stamp the sentiment in matching pink, rather than black.
The cue word at CASology this week is:

This one's for Runway Inspired Challenge where I've taken inspiration from the two tone outfit and that big black belt, and a hint of dots and pink.
It's also for CASE Study, where the inspiration comes from this card by Maile Belles:
Again, the two tone background, the belt in place of ribbon, three sequins in place of flowers, and a plain font for the sentiment.
Because it's got sequins, it's going into A Blog Named Hero's bling challenge (if I can type quickly enough, it's nearly closing!)
