Just Add Ink #588 // Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #457

2 cards each inspired by 1 challenge...

Card #1...

Just Add Ink // #JAI588 ...A color challenge!!  The trio of colors for this sketch...Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, and Magenta Madness.  These normally wouldn't be colors I would pick for a sympathy card but since I needed one this week that is how they got used!!  I must say I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Card #2...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC457 ...A sketch challenge!!  Not happy with how this one turned out.  I guess we all have days when our mojo just isn't there.  If I get a chance before this sketch ends I may give it another try.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc353 ...A project challenge!!  The project for this current challenge...loaded envelopes!!  This was my first time making one of these!!  I had fun with it and think I'll have to keep this in mind for gift ideas.  I used tab punch to separate the sections and added my I LOVE YOU sentiment to each tab.

Retro Rubber #114 // TGIF Challenges #352 // Global Design Project #327

 3 challenges inspired today's card...

Retro Rubber // #rrcb174 ...A photo challenge!! Not only should the photo inspire us but we also need to use stamps that are over a year old.  I used Stampin Up's Everything Amazing stamp set from 2019 and their thinlits alphabet die set that is even older.  I picked my colors from the pastels in the photo.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc362 ...A theme challenge!!  LOVE!! With Valentine's Day right around the corner this is a popular theme.  While my card could be used for the upcoming holiday it was actually used for a bridal shower!!

Global Design Project // #GDP327 ...A theme challenge!! LOVE/VALENTINE!!  I actually made a second card just like this one to add to my Valentine's Day stash since the first one got used at a bridal shower this weekend.

A Masculine Card & A Feminine Card

2 Cards...

Card #1 inspired by 2 challenges...

Festive Friday // #FF0101 ...An inspo list challenge!!  For this challenge we are given an inspo list of ten items celebrating "National Wetland Day" and we are asked to create a card that is inspired by 3 items from the list.  My three from this current list are grasses, masculine, and browns (Early Espresso, Soft Suede, & Crumb Cake).

Paper Craft Crew Challenges // #PCC456 ...A sketch challenge!!  Great inspiration for making a masculine card.  Perfect for showcasing this wetland embossing folder.

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS519 ...A sketch challenge!! This sketch was simple and had so much potential.  I decided to use it for making a wedding card using the beautiful retired die from Stampin Up.

The Color Hues Challenge // #TCH32 ...A color challenge!!  A duo of colors to inspire us.  Silver & White are the two colors given for this challenge.  I used both silver embossing powder (for the flowers layered on the die) and silver metallic card stock.  This metallic paper that I have is so awful to photograph...very reflective and when photographed it looks more like a black.  Much prettier in person!
