Challenge: Whatever the Weather!

Wow - well, thanks to my computer trying to outrightly reject the new blogger layout I am finally able to  post this weeks new challenge (sorry for the delay!).

The challenge for the next fortnight is entitled "Whatever the weather" - perfectly appropriate if you live in the UK at the moment as we've certainly be having some "weather" here these last few days!!

For my card I went very "me" in that it is predominantly Pure Poppy and uses {one of} my all time favourites stamp sets - Scattered Showers.  I have said before but it's worth saying again.... those new inks are just GORGEOUS.  It makes me happy just looking at them!!

Card Deets:
{Cheer Up Buttercup}
Stamps: Scattered Showers
Ink: Pure Poppy
Cardstock: Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White, Beautiful Blooms pp 
Dies: Heart Border, Label Basics, Scattered Showers.

Over to Aimes
" admit that this challenge had me a little stumped for a while until I looked outside my window and inspiration struck:

Card Deets
{You Make Me Smile}
Stamps: Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock: Orange Zest, Stamper's Select White, Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Various ribbons in shades of Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink)

Yup, it was actually sunny! Right now that seems like a rarity!

This sun was super easy to create with a scrap circle of cardstock and scrap pieces of ribbon. The sentiment seems so fitting for a sun; in fact, I may dedicate this card to the sun in the hope that it will come out a little more *wink*"

And here's Kate: "Well this non-stop rain and flooding made me leap towards a set that shouted sunshine at me, this card came together in a flash and makes me dream of cocktails on a beach where it's NOT raining!!"

Card Deets:
Stamps: A Day at the Beach/Scattered Showers
Ink: Summer Sunrise/Harvest Moon/Aqua Mist/Raspberry Fizz/Smokey Shadow
Card: Stamper's Select White
Other: Oval die/Cuttlebig Swiss Dots Embossing folder

Hi Aimes-

I accidently posted the wrong picture on the Inlinkz and it is not giving me the option to delete and add the correct image... The link is right - just the picture is wrong...

If you can delete my link I will repost.

Thank you for your help.


Aimes said...

No worries, Natasha - so long as it's the right link it's fine! :)

Aimes said...

Ha! Seems like the link isn't working! I've gone ahead and deleted your entry so feel free to link up again (or just leave the link in a comment and I'll hook it up for ya!)

Natasha said...

Hi Aimes - Here is the link to the post. Do I need to insert the picture or can you grab it from my blog?

Thank you so much! :)

Natasha said...
