Hi there! Another weekend is drawing to a close and after some really good crafty time I have a few cards to share with you. First up is a card for The Card Concept's colour challenge. I think my card falls into the Clean and Graphic category. There's no stamping on this one - just die cuts and gems - which made for a pretty simple card once I stopped rearranging those rounded diamonds (and that took way longer than I would like to admit…). I actually think I'm going to go back and make some more of these with different papers. I think they'd make a nice set.
Cardstock: (White) Handy Hippo), (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: (Essentials Collection 6x6) Authentique
Dies: (Rounded Diamonds, Thank You) Avery Elle
Next up is a card for the Colour Me…Monochromatic challenge. These stamps are from the Taylored Expressions order I received last month. How cute is that little race car? There's a love sentiment in the set too but I need to build up my birthday card stash especially guy cards. I thought it looked a little plain so I added a bunch of "Vrooms" in the background. It kind of makes it feel like there's a whole bunch of cars revving their engines at the start of a race.
Cardstock: (White) PaperTrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps: (All from Vroom Vroom) Taylored Expressions
Inks: (Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up, (Red Royal) Hero Arts
This card is for three different challenges. I used the design from Freshly Made Sketches and the photo and sprinkles inspiration from Cupcake Inspirations. I'm also going to enter it in the Simon Says Wednesday Dotty challenge. I had fun using up some patterned paper all the way down to the paper pieced cupcake.
Cardstock: (White) PaperTrey Ink
Patterned Paper: (Creative Agenda) 6x6) Echo Park

Last but not least is a card for the current Colour Throwdown challenge. It's been a long time since that Papertrey Mehndi Medallion saw the light of day which is funny when I think about how much I NEEDED it when it was released! LOL! And then something new was released and the Medallion got left in the dust. So fickle…
That's it for me. I'll be back with some more cards tomorrow. Have a wonderful week!
