Personal Challenge Day 4 (plus an extra!)

I made yet another card in a shade of orange today. (Even though it looks peach in the pictures!)


I'm liking this one better than my other orange ones (probably because it doesn't really look orange!).

Stamps: Petite Petals, Flower Shop, Greetings
Embossing folders: Swiss Dots, Spotted
Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, StazOn Jet Black
Accents: Pearls
Papers: Random pattern from my stash, Whisper White, Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe

Then, because I was tired of orange and wanted to branch out a little bit, I CASE'd this card. (Her blog is in German, but she's so good at linking all the supplies that it was easy to figure out.)

I discovered that I got a better effect if I stamped off each of my stamps before I actually stamped on my panel. So each stamp is actually a second stamping except for the flower (third stamping for the gray because my ink pad was juicy).

Stamps: Happy Watercolor (retired), Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Petals, You're In My Thoughts
Inks: Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray, Soft Suede
Accents: Hemp twine, rhinestones
Papers: Whisper White, Blushing Bride


  1. You made me smile with your hatred of orange, but you have come up with a lovely collection of cards with your challenge. I like them all but the one for Day 2 is my favourite - stunning!

    1. Thank you! I try really hard to challenge myself, but this has probably been the worst one so far. I don't know why I've developed this crazy aversion to orange, but it's hard to break! :)
