2 cards for 3 challenges

Yesterday, I made a few more cards using the Colour Crush Challenge on the Pink Paislee Blog. The challenge is to use the colours in the following photo on a project:


I also used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Collage Elements and will be linking these up  this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Happy Birthday.

For my first card, I layered a piece of Pink Paislee patterned paper over some PTI Hawaiian Shores cardstock. I diecut a piece of PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with my Layerz Mat Stack 4 die. On this, I stamped my sentiment (from Stylish Sentiments: birthday) in Versafine ink and then I stamped a collage using PTI's Friends Til the End (in Sweet Blush), Stylish Sentiments: birthday (in Berry Sorbet) and Birthday Style (stamped in Lemon Tart). I added some twine and PTI buttons (in Winter Wisteria, Hawaiian Shores and Summer Sunrise).


For my next card, I stamped my sentiment (from Stylish Sentiments: birthday) in Versafine ink and then I stamped a collage using PTI's Birthday Style (stamped in Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria & Summer Sunrise). I layered this over a piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock and added some stitching. I diecut a piece of Pink Paislee patterned paper using my Birthday Style dies adhered it to the card using dimensional adhesive.


Thanks for looking!

Great cards Leigh. That first one really pops and I love how the mat stack image hangs off the right side. And I love the trio of buttons.

Love how you rocked these colors onto two very different cards. I'm kicking myself for not getting that birthday set from Maile.
