Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink

Ever since I set the challenge at the Cardinal Stampers Blog to use Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Whisper white I just can't stop making cards with those colours. Here are some cards that I made a couple of weeks ago.
This one uses the stamp set that comes in the Simple Delights Card kit (love it) stamped on SU Textured card stock and punched out using the square punch. I have then mounted it on Textured Pretty in Pink card stock and pierced round the squares using the paper piercing tool and mat pack in the Crafters Tool kit and used my white gel pen to make it look like stitching.
The score lines around the card base and at the bottom near the sentiment we done using the Paper Cutter and scoring blade. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink Taffeta. The Welcome Baby is from the Short and Sweet set and I have used the oval and word window punch. The use of the Textured Card stock really adds a lovely soft element to the card.
This next one was for my Aunty Robyn's birthday. She is also a SU demonstrator and you can check out her blog here - Rainbows by Robyn.
I have embossed the heart stamp from the Always stamp set (retiring soon) in white EP onto Vellum card stock mounted it on some whisper white CS and cut it out. I then used my pretty in pink and certainly celery markers to colour the vellum. I used the Certainly Celery Prints DSP to almost cover the card base and embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Darkroom Door, yes I know I have committed Rubb-adultery) in white EP. The ribbon is from a retired ribbon originals pack. I have had so much fun with this colour combination and I can see myself using it again and again.
We are so close to the start of the new Summer Mini Catalogue so watch this space for some cards using the new products. I have been working on a few and I will post them soon.
