Pretty in Pink

Oh no, Pretty in Pink is soon to be leaving us!  If you didn’t already know, Stampin’ Up! have done a colour renovation and with the new catalogue in July, will come a new set of gorgeous colour combinations.  One of the colours that will be leaving the collection is Pretty in Pink… it is such a pretty, girly pink, I am going to miss it!

I have used this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as a basis for my card and also used my Sizzlits Pinwheel die which hasn’t seen the light of day until now.  The papers are from the Tea For Two Designer Series Papers pack.  The pinwheel may look a little different to how you are used to see them, but I wanted to use just the pink side of the patterned paper without the pattern on the other side showing so I just reversed it – I think it looks a little more like a windmill than a pinwheel, but never mind 🙂  I also struggled with where to put the sentiment.  I have stamped it onto some vellum for a nice soft look, but it just didn’t quite look right, no matter where I put it. Perhaps I should have left the card sentiment free.
The other challenge that I will enter this card in is SUO Challenges, who are currently running a challenge using anything Sizzix – well, I have plenty of those!

Hope you have a crafty week.  Happy stamping!

Monochromatic Pinks

Definitely a “girly” challenge this week at Dynamic Duos,

and I have combined the pinks with black and white.

My card uses the Blooming With Kindness stamp set, which is a bit of a favourite at present.  The main flower image has been stamped twice, slightly off-set, once in Pretty in Pink and once in Regal Rose.
The ribbon is gorgeous but unfortunately retired quite a few years ago!

I apologise for the short post today, I have spent most of my day at a local model train exhibition with my family, it was fantastic, but I am feeling a little weary, so time to rest and recover!  Maybe some stamping 🙂
Lots of inspiration again this week from the rest of the Design Team, and please share your wonderful creations with us at Dynamic Duos.
Happy Stamping!
