JAI86 Sketch Challenge

Hello blogging friends!

Sorry I have been MIA this past week but I have been having major computer issues. My computer just shut down last week and wouldn't start back up again! I have it running again now but it has some serious problems so I don't know how long it will go for. Looks like I might be shopping around for a new one soon!

Anyway, while I can I will share with you my creation for this week's sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink. Before I do, here is the sketch in case you would like to play along yourself.
And here is my card. Once again I have kept it pretty simple.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Taken with Teal, Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, basic black
Other: Impressions plate by PTI, gemstones

It's challenge time again over at Just Add Ink, and these week we have a baby theme! I couldn't decide whether to do a boy or girl card so did one of each, in the same design.

Be sure to pop over to the JAI Blog and see what the Design Team have come up with this week, and hopefully you will be inspired to play along with us :)

Sunny Challenges SC005/11

I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend! It's been pretty busy here once again, and what I hoped was going to be a quiet Saturday night turned into me hosting a last minute BBQ for hubby's work colleague and his family. So there went my plans to hang out in my craft room all night!

And of course today is Father's Day here in Oz, so we have spent the morning hanging out with Gerard, making him breakfast, spoiling him with gifts and watching a DVD. Now I hope to sneak off to my room for some mummy play time ;)

Before I do, I thought I would just share this card I made for one of Madi's best friends who got her Learner Drivers Permit this week. To make the card I used the sketch from the Sunny Challenges & Creations blog. Unfortunately I didn't get it put up in time to make the challenge deadline, so hopefully I will do better with that this week!

Anyway here is the sketch challenge that they issued:
And here is my card:
To get the sparkly car, I first stamped the image in versamark ink before inking it in melon mambo. I then stamped it and coated it in a mix of Heat & Stick powder and dazzling diamonds and heat set it.

Stamps: all by Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Melon mambo, whisper white, DSP by Kaiser
Ink: Green galore, melon mambo, versamark, basic black
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, heat & stick powder, pom pom ribbon in melon mambo, corner rounder punch, PTI car die.

Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #83

Sorry I'm a bit late with my post this week! But hubby arrived home from work (in Papua New Guinea) today, just in time to go out for dinner to celebrate our 17th Wedding Anniversary.

I feel very privileged that he flew home just to celebrate with me, and will stay just long enough to celebrate Father's Day with the girls before flying back to work again.

So now that you've heard all my excuses I should show you my card right? This week over at Just Add Ink we have a sketch challenge for you. First, here is the sketch:
And here is my card:
Stamps: Touch of Kindness by SU!
Cardstock: Basic black, going gray, whisper white. DSP by Bo Bunny
Ink: basic black
Other: black ruffled ribbon, stitching, nestabilities, button by SU!, prismacolour pencils
