The Kraft Journal Challenge

I had to do a 60th birthday card, so I tried to incorporate it into a challenge. I haven't participated in any challenges for ages, so I thought now was the time! This one is for The Kraft Outlet blog and the aim was to use Kraft cardstock and use up your stash. I've had this green ribbon for an age, and the scrabble tiles are something that I haven't used much at all.

21st Birthday Card

This is another order I received today. I used my Beautiful Butterflies set again, along with Big Birthday Wishes. I am completely in love with my new PTI Hawaiian Shores ink, so pretty! The patterned paper is Echo Park and the chipboard letters are from American Crafts. The lighting is a bit poor here I'm afraid, so apologies for the photo!

Sympathy Card

I got some new PTI goodies in the post, so I used my new Beautiful Butterflies set to make this card. The butterflies are die-cut and then stamped in Autumn Rose ink. I really love this shade, very eye catching but muted at the same time. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I embossed the background with a Woodgrain impression plate. Thanks for looking :)

Confirmation Card

A quick card I made for a confirmation girl. Lots of pink, by request of the person who ordered it!

Cards made using scraps.

I seem to have loads of scraps lying around these days, so I have decided to use only these for the next few days. I want to try and clear some of my stash before I start using new paper pads!
I made a wedding card and a thank you card from the Echo Park Upscale collection. I just love the colours in this pack and I seem to be using the teal and grey colours all the time.

Sorry for the poor resolution on these, as I took the photos using my iPad.

Wedding Card.

Quick wedding card my mum asked me for. I love black and white for weddings. Added a hint of colour with heart pins.
