Just Add Ink - Colour Challenge #91

Well two posts in one day, I must be on a creative roll.  It has been quite some time since I joined in any challenges, so when this one came up for Just Add Ink I knew it was about time I had a play and entered.

Here is the colours that we had to work with this time:-

I immediately thought baby and just had to try out another Papertrey Ink stamp set called "Baby Button Bits" so here is my card:-

I have gone with Very Vanilla for the neutral colour and have stamped the pea pod in Cherry Cobbler and then ran through a piece of Blushing Bride with the polka dot embossing folder.  The buttons are also from Papertrey Ink that suited the colour choice quite well.  It ended up being quite simple as I think I like that style.

Now off to go and enter it.

Happy stamping,

A Friendship Card

Do you believe it!!! I'm back again with another card, woohoo!!! This one goes out to all of my lovely friends who have been helping me through a bit of a rough patch and without them I don't think I would have come through so well.
So this one is for some of my besties:-
So for the recipe I have used Very Vanilla as the base of the card followed by some very lovely Kaisercraft paper (which I might add I have had in my stash for quite a few years!!!). I have also used Papertrey Ink "On My Couch" and a Mat also from Papertrey Ink which I have cut out in Very Vanilla. The couch has been stamped on a piece of co-ordinating Kaisercraft paper in black ink and I have also inked up the cute little button cushion.
Then I have finished it all off with some lovely ribbon layers, a paper daisy and a couple of pearls. I just love the saying as well, just perfect.
I now have a new crafting space (unfortunately tried to add pics but blogger won't let me!!!) so hopefully my creativity keeps flowing. I have no excuses now!!!
Happy stamping,

I'm Back... And With My Very First Papertrey Ink Card

Well hello out there to you all :) I have finally made a comeback after such a long break - hope you can forgive me. I have now set up a new craft area in an upstairs part of my house and it's now nice and fresh and all set out very lovely (even if I say so myself!!).
Now, don't fall over with the shock but I have managed to make a card - my very first Papertrey Ink card, after having had these lovely stamps in my possession for about 4 months (sheesh, has it been that long).
Well without further suspense here it is:-
I had fun with this cute little set called "Fly Away" and also the very lovely Cloud 1 & 2 Die as well. I also have used some gorgeous paper from Kaisercraft (Little Man Collection). After I had finished the card I showed my daughter, Emily, and she said "Mum, it needs something else - how about some embellishments in the corner?" So I ended up using a couple of cute little buttons also from Papertrey Ink.
I think I can really see more of these cards coming together as it didn't take too long at all. Nice and simple is a good style that I am going to stick with.
So now I hope you can all stay tuned and keep me honest so I will have no excuse but to make more cards!!! I promise I will be making a comeback :)
Happy stamping,
