Some old and some new stamps

We have had a beautiful week of warm to hot weather, highly unusual for August.  But it has been great for getting some outdoor renovations done.  We are only part way through but hopefully by next weekend we should be all done, then I will have a long awaited undercover area to keep laundry dry during our summer storm season.

I saw the cue word for this challenge and new exactly what I would do.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white, New Leaf; X-Press It blending card
Stamps - PTI Vintage Picnic
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black


Right at this moment, my daughter has 2 friends over and they are decorating a cake for Book Week at school this week.  Now this has been a challenge, as I have only very basic knowledge in this department and we had to find black icing, as the theme is All things to do with the Universe.  In the end it wasn't hard to find, and we are using cake pops for planets.

Oh Boy, the noise!!

So here is a peaceful card.  This is my first foray into the Clearly Besotted Challenge - a palette of my favourite colours.  Love the variety of butterflies in this set 

It's a little bit hard to see the pale pink stamped butterflies and they haven't shown up well in the close up.  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white;  SU Pear Pizzazz
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Happy Everything, Butterfly Wishes
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black;  SU Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink; Memento Rose Bud
Dies - Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes
