Thinking Pink Today!

Good morning, on what promises to be a warm, sunny day.  One of the main reasons for me starting this blog was to be able to join in some of the card challenges.  I have stood on the sidelines for a very long time now and so I've finally taken the plunge! I would like to share with you two cards that I have made for this month's Stamping Sensations. Their theme for this month is 'Pretty in Pink.' This is most appropriate as Spring is finally here.


My first card was made using the Bare Trees stamp by Inkylicious which was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black. I then used Impress Dusky Rose to stamp over the tree to create blossoms using a stamp that I've had for years by Art Impressions. The tree was then given some dimension by using a tiny amount of Flower Soft.  The sentiment is by 'Stamps Happen' and the pink flower used to create the border is by Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  The tree is framed by Spellbinder's Decorative Labels Eight.



My second card is made again with stamps from Inkylicious.  This one is from the Oriental Awakening set.  I started by taking a piece of matt white card and used Ink Dusters to create some colour around the edges. The colour is again Dusky Rose by Impress.
Thank you for taking the time to look and I wish you all a happy weekend.

  1. Hi Sandma, I saw your gorgeous cards on Pinterest and thought how perfect they'd be for our "Pretty In Pink" challenge at Stamping Sensations. I particularly like the first one, the blossom effect is lovely. So pleased to see you have entered them, and thanks for sharing them with us.

    1. Thank you Sally. The bare trees are one of my favourite sets and I use them all the time but it was nice to do something a little different with them.
