Some Challenges

I love a good challenge to get my mojo moving!  I have spent an enjoyable Monday long weekend day playing with the Broadway Bound Suite.  Another of those sets I adore but haven't given much inky love to.

Firstly I have played along with Freshly Made Sketches #372.  Here is the sketch.

And here is my card.


Here is what I have used:

Stamps: Broadway Birthday
Card/Paper:  Whisper White C/S, Basic Black C/S, Broadway Bound Specialty DSP
Ink: Memento Black
Tools: Big Shot, Broadway Lights Framelits, Stitched Shape Framelits

I love the big bold statement this set makes and need to get it out more often!

Next I played along at CASEing the Catty #213.  Still sticking with the same products on my desk but a more girly version this time.

Here is the challenge.


I chose to case the bottom left card on page 10 as pictured above.


Here is what I used:

Stamps:  Broadway Birthday, Wonderful Romance
Card/Paper:  Whisper White C/S, Lemon Lime Twist C/S, Broadway Bound Specialty DSP, Gold Foil Sheets
Ink: Gray Granite
Tools: Big Shot, Broadway Lights Framelits

I used the little sprinkle stamp from Wonderful Romance which is the stamp set used on page 10 of the Occasions catalogue for the inspiration as well just so it all ties in!

Thanks for popping by and sticking with my long post today, I hope you have enjoyed these cards.

A Couple of Baby Cards

Hi everyone.  My stash is seriously lacking some baby cards so I busted out Little Twinkle to make a couple.  The first one I wasn't overly wrapped with - needed a bit more white space I think.

Card/Paper: Whisper White C/S, Pool Party C/S, Twinkle Twinkle DSP
Ink: Pool Party
Tools: Star Punch (retired)
Embellishments: Silver & Whisper White Baker's Twine, Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins

The next card I tried to leave a bit more white space and I must say I think I like this one better.


Here is what I used:

Stamps: Little Twinkle
Card/Paper: Whisper White C/S, Twinkle Twinkle DSP
Ink: Memento Black
Tools: Star Punch (retired)
Embellishments: Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8" Variegated Ribbon, Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins
