Runway Inspired #4

WOW, 2 posts in a day, this is most unusual for me at the moment. I need to get these done before the tennis starts this morning as we are now into the semis of the Australian Open.  I didn't go down this year but we had such a great tournament here in early January that there isn't quite the same need to travel to Melbourne.  Still, I have really loved going in the past as it is a great opportunity to catch up with family.

The challenge - lots of wonderful bright colours

I have gone with Modern Basics as I really need the practice and there are so many amazing and different projects out there that I want to try using this set.  I have gone with a simple birthday card which will be useful for my daughter's friends.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white
Stamps - PTI Modern Basics; Happy Day
Ink - SU Early Espresso, Green Galore, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise;  Brilliance Rocket Red, Sunflower Yellow
Gems - Kaisercraft

Papertrey Ink January 2012 Blog Hop

I know it's only meant to be 1 favourite project but I have picked 2.  I loved the effect of the quatrefoil die white on white but really love the colour scheme of the second. 

It isn't very clear but I embossed some of the flowers from Rosie Posie onto the white cardstock.  In real life it is much more apparent.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white; Shimmer Aqua (? Canson)
Stamps - PTI Rosie Posie, Happy Day
Ink - Brilliance Pearlescent Jade;  Memento Tuxedo Black; Versamark
Die - PTI Quatrefoil
Embossing Powder - Coloriser (clear)
Gems - Kaisercraft

Today is Australia Day,  a day on which we celebrate the nationhood of our young country.  Unfortunately, with the days of heavy rain we have had,  alot of events have been cancelled.  But I am sure there will be cane toad racing or yabbie catching happening somewhere in Brisbane.

Runway Inspired #3

After an extended Christmas/New Year hiatus, I think I am back in the swing of card making.  I haven't been idle, just indulging my festive need to CASE.  In this case to do something with my Taylored Expressions monthly kits and I couldn't go past the wonderful creations of the DT.  Consequently I have tons of birthday and thank you cards which I use the most. 

 I caught up a bit with my 2011 Project Life album but there is a long way to go.  I will give it another go this year, hopefully alittle more wiser.  

It has taken a while to come up with my final card for this challenge, I felt quite in awe of what others had created, but I am happy with the outcome.  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white, black; ? shimmer black
DSP - SU Neutral Patterns
Stamps - PTI Flower Fusion
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Die - Spellbinders
Punch - Martha Stewart
Gems - Kaisercraft

Hope to be back with a few cards for the Clean and Simple online class
