Spring Mini due 1 August

So there's a new mini catalogue for Stampin' Up! due out on 1 August. Here's a card using the stamp set "Tree Trimmings" and Ski Slope designer series paper as well as a 5/16" jumbo brad from the mini. The colour combination is also from the Ski Slope DSP - a great cheat to making great colour combinations is to use colours already mixed up in scrapbook papers! Anyway, hope you enjoy this card. Very simple and I think its a bit nice.

Cyberstamp 10 July Challenge 2 & 3

So here's Challenge 2, a colour challenge... The colour palette:

And my sample:

Challenge 3 is a sketch from Becky Fleck Pagemaps. I love using these as a starting point when I'm having trouble coming up with something on my own. I've been pretty faithful to this one - but I usually use sketches to start me off and get the juices going.

And here's my sample...

Hope you enjoy my first Inklings Cyberstamp!

Elite challenges

Couple of challenges from the Elite team challenge blog. I love the colour combination Carol chose for this month's challenges, hence the hasty completion of the challenges! :) The first card covers Challenges 1 & 2, using the stamp set Circle Circus and the colour combination of Not Quite Navy, Kraft and Very Vanilla. I really like this card! :)

This second card is based on a sketch made from a card on page 31 of the current Australia/New Zealand Idea Book Catalogue from Stampin' Up! I was a bit caught on the blue and vanilla theme. Used the Fresh Cuts stamp set and some Bashful Blue instead of Kraft card. I'm quite happy with the result!
