Yesterday I shared the 3D item I presented for a challenge on the ESAD Cyberstamp  Weekend.

Well on Saturday my good friend Lisa gave us a colour challenge of Ridinghood Red, More Mustard and Bordering Blue – not her usual colours and not mine either for that matter!

ClassicStarsESADCCCC1I started off with this idea using the Classic Stars Jumbo Stampin Round.

I am not overly happy with the finished card – what do you think? Maybe it might have been better if I had used More Mustard as the base card? I was limited with the amount of More Mustard cardstock as I only had one A5 piece and a couple of off cuts. Must remember to order some More Mustard cardstock with my next order!

After making this card I decided to have another go and wanted to use a stamp set that hadnt been inked before – I still have sets from my April pre-order that I havent used! Just dont tell hubby 😉

So I grabbed the Le Jardin Botanique stamp set and started playing … and I came up with these two cards …


I was soooo much happier with these cards. I quite like the Ridinghood Red and More Mustard together and managed to work these cards so I could make two from the one piece of More Mustard. The eyelet border punch gives these cards a little elegance as well.

I really enjoyed the weekend sharing and stamping with the girls from ESAD and it was great to get to know a few that I didnt already know apart from their name and email address.

  1. Ooooh Ooooh … now why does everyone else’s colour challenge look so lovely when I struggled so much with these colours??? Must be a lack of MOJO!!! Yours are just amazingly gorgeous, Leonie!!! Hugs, Andrea xx

  2. Wow, Leonie. I would never have thought to use those colors together. The cards really look effective especially with the stamp set you have used. Well done.

  3. I really like the first card Leonie – it’s probably just a bit different to your usual style but I do like it – the colours work really well I think. Has it grown on you yet? The other cards look good too.
