Stamping with some Stampin' Up

Just a couple of cards I made today using some Stampin' Up stamps this time!

This first card is for Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge and ColourQ's Challenge #162 to use these colours, which turned out to be a gorgeous colour combo! I tried to colour my pearls with my Soft Suede marker pen and the little ones worked perfectly but the ink on the large one just kept running off and wouldn't stick - must be something about those larger pearls. Thinking about it I could have tried to heat set it, but I didn't. Must remember to try that next time to see if it works!


And here's my card.

My next card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #226 to use these colours and for SC410 for the sketch. I'm not a particular fan of Cajun Craze, but it works quite well with these other 2 colours.


And here's my little birdies.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
