Sweet Sunday Sketch 84, CardPatterns 80, & Papertrey Pals 15


Hi there! Tonight I have two cards to share for three challenges. First up is the weekly Sweet Sunday Sketch.


The colors of this card were inspired by the Papertrey Pals challenge, but I couldn't make the Melon Berry work so I stuck with the Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, and SU's Concord Crush in place of the Plum Pudding. The floral silhouette and dragonfly are from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages.


Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, white), Stampin' Up! (Concord Crush)
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo (Garden Delight), Papertrey Ink (Mega Mixed Messages)
Ink: Clearsnap (Moss Green), Ranger (Eggplant)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 4, Woodgrain impression plate), Fiskars (border punches), Uni-ball Signo (white pen)

I still wanted to use the colors for the Papertrey Pals challenge, so I made a second card using the sketch at CardPatterns.




I used some of the same elements from the first card, including the woodgrain impression on the Chartreuse strip, a scalloped edge on the purple strip, and white dots along the edges to frame the card.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted:
Cardstock: Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, white
Patterned paper: 2008 Bitty Dot Basics
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Mega Mixed Messages
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Clearsnap (Moss Green), Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools: Scallop border die, Woodgrain impression plate, Spellbinders (square die), Uni-ball Signo (white pen)
Accessories: buttons, DMC floss

Okay, my mind is going blank so that's all I have to say tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by!

These are both knockouts Christina, and I'm so glad you liked the color combo! I think the first one is my favorite, I love the paper piercing around the Mat Stack, and the pretty little scene with the dragonfly! Great work!
