What a great day it is today, sun is shining and even though we are into Autumn the weather is still pretty mild. I love Australia just saying. My Chooks (chickens) are great I just love them to bits. They come running to see me after work how cute is that. Today we are going to a BBQ I have made a delicious but easy chocolate mousse for dessert, not my best result but still tastes super yummys and takes minutes. I am using some little paper Cup cake cases to serve them in and they look so cute. Any one interested in a super easy super quick mousse recipe Click HERE, little tip mix melted chocolate in quick otherwise it starts to set and leaves it a bit bitty but I shall tell them its little chocolate chips lol.
Anyway onto the main reason for the post. Today I used the insprational card over at Case Study, its been a while since I have managed a card for this challenge, but I loved the look of Joni Nina Andaya's Card and it also fits in pefectly with the inspriataionl photo at Runway Inspired's challenge blog.
I am so happy with the way it turned out, I doesnt photograph as good as it looks in real life, I really must google how to make the cards look their best in a photo.
So for this card I used the following products from stampin up
Card - Saharah Sand, Very Vanilla and Black Ink - Saharah Sand, Basic Black DS Paper - Modern Medley Stamps - Parlour Prints, Chalk Talk Framelits - Chalk Talk Some of the new twine with silver Vintage faceted button
We have a few days for rain rain rain but today it finally clear and and the sun is shining. Having said that I have managed to make another 4 cards today as it was still raining this morning. I have found yet another new challenge for you today. I can't remember where I stumbled upon it but as I find most of my inspiration comes from challenges, more is def more in this case.
Of course I still love the older challenges and one of my favourite ones is The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, I think I have been doing this one for a long time maybe 4 or 5 years. I get very disappointed when challenges close down, especially the ones I have done for a long time. I also used the newly discovered inspirational photo challenge from Stampin Clelebration as my pallet.
For this Card I used the following products from Stampin Up
Card - Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla, Water colour card, Crumb Cake Ink - Concorde Crush, Gumball Green, Baked Brown Sugar, Sahara Sand Fancy Fan embossing folder Stamp - Happy Water colour and a very old hostess one that I still LOVE I think it's the font. Decorative label punch Paper is from the In colour Paper Stack
Card number 4 and this one I used the sketch/inspration photo from the Fusion Challenge which happened to fit perfectly with the colour combo at Colour Q. The only difference was that I don't have Cool Carribean so I substituted this with Tempting Turquoise as this seemed to be the nearest fit. I love the shaped bottom from Fusion, It just adds that little bit of sculpture to the card. I also cheated a little bit because I so wanted to add some of the frilled ribbon but it only comes in the incolours so had to use the Baked Brown Sugar. Isn't it cute and fits so perfectly.
For this Card I used the following products from stampin Up
Card - Starfruit, Whisper White Ink - Tempting Turquoise (sub for Caribean), Crumb Cake Pretty Prints embossing folder Stamp - Beautifully Baroque
Card number 3 and still no retro.. going good. It's been a while since I played along at the Case Study Challenge but today I felt a bit inspired by the great Case Card from Danielle Flanders. I took my inspiration from the colours mostly with a hint of the layout and I knew I wanted to use the Beautifully Baroque stamp. My only regret is using the writing stamp on the background.
For this card I used the following products from Stmapin up
Card - Blushing Bride, Whisper White Pretty Print embossing folder Ink - Daffodil Delight, Basic Black and Blushing Bride DS Paper - Watercolour Wonder Basic Pearls
Come on aren't you proud of me, 2nd card and not a sniff of retro.. I have some new papers to play with this week. So this card used the Sketch from My Favourite Things and I used the Colour combo from Fab Friday. These new papers just screamed out for these challenges.
So for this card I used the following products from stampin Up
Card - Basic Balck, Whisper White Ink - Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry DS Paper - Kaleidascope Stamp - Starburst Sayings, Simply Stars Starburst Framelits. 3/4 circle some ribbon from my stash
