Whiff of Joy#44, Papertake Weekly #100 and PaperPlay#31

Whiff of Joy meets Papertake Weekly

This week over on Whiff of Joy Challenges Rach has made a wonderful sketch to follow. I used one of the new Whiff of Joy Fall kit stamps and coloured her with my trusty distress inks, then shaded the background with Dried Marigold. I added some flowers and leaves that I won recently and some adhesive pearls to finish it off. I'm trying to used up all of the little pearls that are always left over so you may notice quite a lot of them on my cards recently, lol.

I'm also entering this into Papertake Weekly Challenge who are celebrating their 100th challenge this there's a choice of 99 different challenges!!! That's because you get to pick your favourite PTW challenge and re-do it. I picked Seeing Spots.

Ribbon, pearls and pin from my stash

PaperPlay Challenges #31

This is my DT card for PaperPlay Challenges this week, which is a sketch by Mandy :) I just love these Gorjuss girl images.. and of course mine are predominantly blonde, lol.

Tab inadvertantly reminded me that I had a cute little butterfly punch from back in the day when I'd just started making cards and had no clue about what I should have been buying so I ended up with a load of things I never use!! This was actually a box of tiny punches and I made the little flower centres using 2 more of them. I guess they did come in handy after all. Again, I have added tons of little adhesive pearls :D

Papers: BG Urban Prairie & Gemstones cardstock
Image: Gorjuss Girl
Ribbon: Making Memories
Flowers: Prima
Distress inks, adhesive pearls
Tools: Nestabilities oval and scalloped oval, cuttlebug, Craft Tonic punches (Do Crafts)

Both of these cards are so sweet and pretty. I have a stash of supplies I'll never use too. You could write a guide for newbies "tools you'll never use." :)
