Sweet Sunday Sketch #269 - BOLD and BRIGHT!




Happy Sunday! It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! All the details are over on the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog. Join us, and perhaps you could be our SPOTLIGHT designer for the week!!!

I have gone way out of my comfort zone on this one....BOLD, BRIGHT, BOLD... did I mention BOLD!!! Goodness... I might actually need a little lie down after this!

A few weeks ago, I hopped on a jet plane and flew to the other side of this BIG country of ours (Australia) to the Gold Coast, for the Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share Convention! This DSP was one of the goodies we received as an 'all attendee giveaway'. It's a NEW DSP, which will be available soon when the NEW Catalogue goes live.. Did I mention that happens on the 2nd June!!!!. It's called Bohemian and it uses EVERY colour I would normally steer clear of!!! BUT.. I was up for a challenge and this is what I came up with!

Here is my card for this week:-



Here is the sketch for this week:-


The colours I've used are Rich Razzleberry and Island Indigo card stock, of course, the NEW Bohemian DSP and some Burlap Ribbon and twine. The other colours in the DSP pack are Delightful Dijon ( NEW), Bermuda Bay and Blackberry Bliss!
The stamp set is also NEW and available soon, it's called 'I think your're great'.

Please stop by the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog and find out all the details for this sketch, while you're there you can add your very own creation to the Inlinkz too!

I've used my favourite and go to colour combo.. partly because it's my FAVE and partly because I'm making this card just before I jump on a plane!!.. I was doing SO well, being organised a few weeks in advance... Anyhoo... it's done, it's posted and I can breathe!!

So, Soft Suede, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pink Pirouette are the colours of choice, some GORGEOUS Burlap and Lace and a little bit of Typeset DSP!

Sweet Sunday Sketch #266

Hello There!!! It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time, once again!!

Today's card was made for my little girl's sweet little friend, who just celebrated her sixth birthday. The brief from my little six year old was "something FROZEN colours!"

Sooo... this is "something FROZEN colours" and it seemed to get the A OK! Phew.. The pressure!!


Here is my sample for this weeks sketch:-



And here is the sketch for you to play along with:-



I used Smokey Slate, Pool Party and some Silver Glimmer Paper on this one. The stamp set is Starburst Sayings (which is UNFORTUNATELY retiring soon!!) and the 'Happy Birthday' is from Sketched Birthday.

We were so very honoured to be invited to a beautiful wedding of some gorgeous friends. The wedding was in the glorious Margaret River Region, which is truly stunning and a gorgeous secret (or not so secret ;-) ) of WA!!! The wine is divine, the food is divine, the drive is divine... you get the picture.

This is the card I made for the new MR and MRS! GOLD, GOLD and more GOLD!. I used Gold Glimmer Paper, Very Vanilla Card stock and some Gold Soiree Specialty DSP. I've also added some Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a little bit of Linen Thread.

Sweet Sunday Sketch #264

Why, hello!!! It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch! I hope you can join us this week. 

Unfortunately we had some sad news a few weeks ago, a dear friend of ours, Dad passed away. I've never been very good at making Sympathy cards, who is, right!? But here is what I came up with:-



Here is the sketch you can play along with:-



I kept the colour palette really neutral  and just used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The top Very Vanilla layer is actually DSP from the Neutrals DSP pack. I added some Burlap Ribbon and some Very Vanilla Seam Binding and used my Summer Silhouettes and Petite Pairs stamp sets.
