Third Time Lucky

This is a tale of three cards. I got up early to make my DT card for the new colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. I needed to make a few cards in advance because I will be off on holiday again next week, so I wrote the challenges down and started selecting stamp sets, inks, card stock and so on. I finished the first card quite easily, ideas were flowing and I made all the ones I needed by lunch time. Then I went to upload my card on the blog and realised I'd got the colour palette wrong! Instead of
..I had used Blushing Bride, So Saffron and! Oh no! So I got all my stuff out again (I don't have a craft room, just a dining table) after dinner and made another card. Correct colours, all was fine and here it is...

I used the small flower stamp from Bloomin' Marvellous and an embossing folder I've had for years. I used tone on tone stamping and added a small embellishment in the centre of the flowers. It wasn't until I took the photo that I noticed a glue smear on the top- disaster for a clean and simple card. 
My third and final offering is this one, using Mosaic Madness, Wisteria Wonder card stock, a pale pink card blank which will pass for Blushing Bride and the embossed sentiment cut out of the previous card (waste not, want not, as they say)

I actually like this card the best, I think it makes the most of these soft, pastel shades. I do hope you have more success than I did when you make your card


  1. I do like the colours and your cards are just lovely xx

  2. Two super cards showcasing the pretty pastel colours very differently. Great inspiration there!

  3. I haven't thought to use my embossing folders much lately, so seeing your cards was a treat! I especially like the mosaic card, with the stamping interspersed with the embossing.

  4. Lovely cards, have a great holiday :)


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
