Funky Friday #23

These are the colours for this weeks funky friday challenge, click the above image to go to the challenge blog.
Here's my card for this weeks challenge, I really love doing these challenge's they take you out of your comfort zone of colour only from one colour family, I couldn't wait to use these stamps I got them on Saturday and absolutly love them.

I used Rose red, Bashful blue, Kraft and old olive card (I'm thinkingI may replace the old olive card with old olive dsp), Bashful Blue, Night of navy, Versamark and Stazon white ink, Dazzling diamonds and heat and stick powder (I love these 2 together but am always disapointed that they don't photo very well), and 1" Double stitched grosgrain ribbon in Rose Red that my wonderful upline gave me, Love you Abi =D and chip board circles.

My card sketch book / note pad


I really enjoyed making this and now keep it by the computer to sketch card designs I like while browsing the net. I used Rainbow Sherbet DSP, Tempting turquoise and certainly celery card, certainly celery ribbon Corner rounder, versamark and tempting turquoise ink, dazzling diamonds glitter, oval and scallop oval punches, I would have used the 1/8" circle punch as well but don't have 1 yet so had to make do with my eyelet hole punch but I quite like hitting it with a hammer it therapeutic lol, the stamps I used were Office accoutrement and seeing spots.

Funky Friday #21


Here's my card for Abi's challenge, this weeks challenge was to use Handsome hunter, Very Vanilla, Gold, Bravo Burgundy and Elegant Eggplant. It took me ages to work out how to use all the colours together but I like what I came up with, I might have found it easier if I'd choose to make a christmas card for the challenge but I decided I didn't want to make one although I might make a christmas one aswell if I get time.

I used Retired Polka dots and Paisley stamp set(which I got last September and hadn't used) Elegant Eggplant, Gold, Very vanilla and Handsome Hunter card, Elegant Eggplant and Versamark Ink, a sponge dauber, gold embossing powder and some pearls I found in my button box. I had one of them moment's again while making this card the spoilt brat one when I was wishing I had the pretties kit but got over it when I found my pearls and saw how close their colour is to very vanilla

Sorry it's late again but better late than never, I decided to make a 6"x6" scrapbook page for this weeks challenge, Thank you so much Abi I'm sure you choose this week's colours just for me, you knew I'd just got the Love stories scrapin kit didn't you.

I used Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card, Mr & Mrs stamp set ( that's why it's late I was waiting for the stamp set to come in the post ), Close to cocoa dsp from Love Stories scrapin kit, a die cut sticker also from the kit, basic black Stampin' write journaler pen and a silver butterfly which my Daughter saved from the table at the wedding.

Thought I'd share this card with you as it's almost Fathers dayand Stampin' Up! have a fantastic offer for not just one month but two, if you host a work shop with sales over £250 you get to choose a Background stamp absolutly free.

I stamped Acetate ( I used a whole A4 sheet scored in the middle for this one but my Dad's worth it ) with opaque white stazon and Canvas background stamp, stamped Happy fathers day from Occasional Greetings in Brilliant blue on to Whisper White card, layered this on to bashful blue card, stamped a piece of More mustard card with versamark and the Canvas stamp then used star adhesive die cuts from the Simply sent Rock Star Card elements and stamped the 3 stars from Starring you stamp set using Basic Grey and coloured them using Isoproyl alcohol and a Aqua painter with Brilliant blue, Old Olive and More mustard ink. Now I hope my Dad doesn't Acidently see my blog before Father's day
