Mojo Monday #334

It's Mojo Monday Challenge time again! This week is tall and skinny week!
Here is the sketch...
And here is my card...
I saw this colour combo on Pinterest, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Pool Party and Pacific Point. I started making the card with Pacific Point on it as well but it just wasn't working (in my eye). I got rid of the Pacific Point and just used the other three colours and it looked so much better.
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'

Team Colour Challenge

My upline gave us three different colour combinations for our team challenge this week. This one was to use Crisp Canteloupe, Smokey Slate, and Pistachio Pudding. These are some very underrated colours and they look stunning when all used together.

The Crisp Cantaloupe DSP (Sweet Sorbet),the cork flowers and the twine are all from the current Sale-a-bration brochure. They are just so pretty!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 202 Just Add Stripes

I know! Two posts in one day is a little crazy but I got on a bit of a creative roll and just kept going! I decided to join in the challenge for this week at Just Add Ink. It's been a while since I have joined in there but I couldn't resist this weeks challenge, which is Just Add Stripes.

 I just love the Sale-a-bration Banner Blast stamp set! It's too cute and I love that it has a co-ordinating punch! Even better!

You can punch out the little flowers from this stamp set using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack! Saves using the scissors!

Mojo Monday Challenge #332

Oops! I certainly haven't been on here for a looooooooooooooooooong time! And I'm so sorry! Sometimes my life takes over and I don't get a chance to always blog my creations!

Well I'm going to say I'm back and I'll be making more of an effort to regularly post my creations on here!

I find the best way to get out of that creative slump that we get stuck in sometimes, is to participate in a challenge and I love the challenges over at Mojo Monday! I love their sketches and regularly use their past sketches to sometimes get that creative ball rolling!

This is the sketch for this week
And this is my interpretation of the sketch...
This sketch challenge is combined with a colour challenge from my Stampin' Up! upline to use the colours Basic Black, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. Loving the colour combo!
And loving the gold sequin trim! Think that will be my new 'thing'!
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'
