Lions & Birdies & Clouds… Oh My!

I didn't make it into the Craft Cave over the weekend but I had some time in there today and I got a few cards made.  First up is for the ColourQ challenge using new (to me) WPlus9 supplies.  I've been wanting these dies and stamps for ages and finally managed to catch them while they were back in stock.  The ColourQ colours were just calling out to be used with this set!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Summer Starfruit, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up, (Rust) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Dots & Stripes Metropolitan 6x6) Echo Park
Stamps:  (All from Sending Sunshine) WPlus9
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Cloud Border, Sunshine Layers) WPlus9
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for the Fusion challenge.  I used the sketch and took it very literally!  The inspiration photo made me think of this particular Glitz 6x6 paper pad although you wouldn't know it by looking at the papers I ended up using!  This little Memory Box bird is one of my favourites and definitely gets a lot of use.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (77 6x6) Glitz
Stamps:  (Sentiment from CL342) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Perched Reed Bird) Memory Box, (Stitched Circles) Lil' Inker Designs
Gems:  Recollections

Finally is a card that started with the Sketch for You to Try at Reverse Confetti.  Clearly I was in a real patterned paper mood today between this card and the last one.  Definitely not my usual CAS style.  This card also made me think of the new photo inspiration over at The Challenge.  Bright colours, patterns, a banner and a birthday?  Perfect!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (The Citrus Matstack) DCWV
Stamps:  (All from Leaping Lions) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Stitched Circles) Lil' Inker Desings
Gems:  (Ladybug assortment) Doodlebug
Other:  (Corner Chomper) We R Memory Keepers

I love them all, Jen! I'll be singing that sunshine song all day! and the sentiment on your Leaping Lion card just makes me smile [and cringe a little if truthful - as it would be perfect for me!] Lovely seeing you in The Challenge gallery!!

Wonderful batch of cards here, Jen. Love them all, and especially how you have managed to use so much patterned paper--is that a .0001% dent in your supply? Really love how you used the ColourQ colors this week--thanks so much for playing along.

Stripy clouds are the best! Fun first card with the pop of sentiment colour. Love the clean graphic goodness of the second one. Your lion card is such a happy card! Great colours and such a cute lion.
