Paper Pal and Sketch Saturday Challenges

Here's a card I made for a couple challenges this week.  The first was an inspiration challenge from Paper Pal Arts - PPA31.  I decided to use the greens and yellows and birds for inspiration.  I also used a sketch from Sketch Saturday #92.  The stamps I used are Its a Stretch and Picture This from Stampin Up.

Paper Roses for MOJO127

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO127.  I've been seeing all kinds of great paper flowers lately so I thought I'd give another one a try.  I started with this tutorial.  I don't have the Fancy Flower punch so I had to improvise a little.  I used the 5 Petal Flower punch and trimmed off the pointed tips.  These are pretty labor intensive but really nice for a special project.

Greenhouse Garden

I decided to pull out an older set today.  I've been using the mini sets so much that my other sets are gathering dust!  This floral set is Greenhouse Garden.  I haven't used it much but this card came out nice.  I used the DSP from the Sale-a-Bration promotion.  This paper pad has tons of really nice patterns.  I also used the sets Whimcial Words and Tiny Tags.

Vintage Prince Ian

Here's a quick card I put together for this week's Farm Fresh Challenge at The Greeting Farm.  The challenge was to make something vintage.  I think Prince Ian looks pretty vintage.  I also used a sketch from Mercy Kerin's blog - MTSC61.  For background stamps I used SU's Vintage Vogue and added Tiny Tags for the sentiment.

colorQ Challenge #19

I found a new challenge blog this morning while surfing.  colorQ hosts color challenges.  This week's challenge was Blush Blossom, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, and Chocolate Chip - cQc #19.  I rarely use Blush Blossom but I really like this combo!  For stamps I used Picture This. 

Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO125

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch - MOJO125.  I used the SU Sale-a-Bration set Vintage Labels.  This is a versatile and pretty set.  I need to use it more!!  For DSP I used Sweet Pea from the Occasions mini.  I'm really pleased with all the different colors and patterns in the stack.  You can create so many different projects with just one pack of paper!!

Picture This - PPA29

Here's my card for this week's challenge at Paper Pal Arts - PPA29.  For this card I used the Level 1 Hostess set from the Occasions Mini - Picture This.  I also used the Sweet Pea DSP from the mini.  I made the flowers by layering several punches together.  I scrunched them up a little bit to add some texture and dimension.

Vintage Labels

Here's another card I made using the Scallop Circle flowers.  These are so easy to make and really add a lot of depth and texture to the project.  For this card I used the SU SAB set Vintage Labels.  I haven't played with the set too much yet but I really like it.  I need to use it more!

Yummy Springy Card

Here's a card I put together using one of last year's Sale-a-Bration sets.  The set is called Yummy.  I'm glad I held onto this one!  I added some bright and springy DSP, Pawsitively Paws, from the last mini.  And I used my markers directly on the stamp to create the mulitcolored sentiment.  Simple but pretty...
