Simply Stampin'

This card is for the current Simply Stampin' Challenge. I heard about this challenge blog from my lovely upline Deb who is now a designer over at the blog!

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. I love sketches, as they can get you out of your comfort zone and trying combinations you didn't think would work!

Ingredients (all Stampin' Up!):

Cardstock: Soft Suede and Whisper White
DSP: Attic Boutique
Stamps: Faith In Nature (Hostess) and Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink: Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive
Other: Modern Label Punch

Mother's day card, take 2!

Today's card is for my MIL. I wanted to keep it simple and feminine without looking too girly! I've never made a card for her before, but we get along quite well so I hope she likes it! :)

Mother's Day

I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted!! Woops! In my defence I have had a lot of other commitments, especially from my university studies. I have been making cards, I just haven't had time to post them. And even then, I haven't made as many cards as I would have liked :)

Today's card is for the Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add... Mother. I have been wanting to try an easel box card ever since I saw it in my card magazine. I have made the little note card to go inside it as well, and there is a bookmark from my girls to go in too :) This project is for my beautiful mum, who is absolutely awesome if I do say so myself!

Please excuse the printer and blinds in the photo! I have found that the best place to take photos of my projects is in my study/craft room, however I ran out of time to photograph through the day!
