Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

SSSC Header

Hi everyone and welcome to another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge blog hop!. For anyone new to my blog this is a challenge that I take part in once a month with some fellow crafters. Usually we are given a sketch to work with, but this month is slighlty different – we have been given four Stampin’ Up colours, definitely a challenge!

These are the colours that have been picked for us:SSSC June

They are lovely colours and I really enjoyed working with them. It took me a while to manage to come up with something using all four colours, but I got there!

I used the Falling Flowers stamp set and it’s coordinating framelits dies, May Flowers. I love this stamp set as there is so much you can do with it. I love the flourish and chose it as a background, along with the smallest flower in the set, for my bold die cut flower. 

I really had fun playing around with this stamp set and these colours, I hope you like the end result. My fellow crafters have come up with some amazing projects using these same colours, so make sure that you use the buttons below to go and have a look.

Happy Crafting’

Pootles’ Colour Challenge 002


Hi everyone, welcome to this weeks blog!

This week the lovely Sam Hammond of Pootles.Co.Uk has set us a colour challenge. I love the colours she has picked:


I had no trouble at all deciding what I wanted to do for this challenge as I have just recently purchased the “Jar of Love” stamp set from Stampin’ Up and I was looking for an excuse to play with it!

Wisteria Wonder is a beautiful colour and the other colours compliment it so well, so I used this colour for the beautiful little flowers.

I love layers on cards, so used Smoky Slate as my base, then I layered with Wisteria Wonder and Whisper white. I finished of the picture by adding a little enamel heart in Wisteria Wonder.

I had great fun making this card, I hope you like it.
