Another challenge, this time for my Demonstrator group. There were two parts to this challenge, colour and layout. Although I entered this through my demo group, anyone can enter through Tanya Kitto's blog.
Stamp set: Echoes of Knidness
Cardstock: kraft, whisper white and pink pirouette
Ink: pink pirouette and black stazon
Accessories: Big shot, candy lane dsp, white taffeta ribbon and pink pirouette button.
A colour challenge this week from the ladies at JAI: Chocolate ship, kiwi kiss and barely banana. The first two colours are old favourites of mine, but the third..let's just say it has taken me a couple of years to use up the three sheets you get in a multi-pack of cardstock!
I used items found in the new Autumn mini for this card, including my new Big Shot. I am really loving this machine. It is easier to use than my cuttlebug and sits on my bench much better (stabler if that's a word).
Cardstock: Choc chip, kiwi kiss, barely banana and whisper white
Ink: choc chip, kiwi kiss and barely banana
Stamps: Vintage vogue and Very vintage wheel
Accessories: Big shot, rhinestone brads
Techniques: joy fold card folding and sponging
I missed the last JAI challenge due to work commitments and with the kids on holidays time just got away from me. So here is this week's JAI challenge, a layout this time around. The square shape is perfect for a 12" x 12" scrapbook layout. And, of course, if I am scrapbooking it will be about the kids. This time it is Isobel's 10th Birthday with her friends at Emu Point beach.
I have used a Simply Scrappin' kit, Party Pieces which retired a couple of years ago. I don't often use a kit as I have enough craft stuff to make my own embellishments, but they do make things much easier and quicker. All the hard work is done for you and as the girls at JAI came up with the layout for me..well the whole thing came together in less than an hour!
Cardstock: Tempting turquoise, old olive, pumpkin pie and whisper white
Ink: tempting turquoise
Accessories: Simply Scrappin' kit Party Pieces (retired), black marker
