Another SWALK sneak peek

I'm happy to share with you today another couple of SWALK sneak peeks.  I love the fact that these two cards are so different.  That's what I love about stamping, the versatility it gives you.  So first up I've gone totally minimalist, apart from the ribbon which I'm loving the ruched effect.  This card was inspired by challenges at:
Just Us Girls - black, cream and kraft
Tuesday Taggers - nursery rhymes, Little Polly Flinders

Supplies used:
Stamp - SWALK with sympathy
Ink - black soot distress ink
Cardstock - white, kraft, black
Embossing folder - cuttlebug swiss dots
Ribbon - cream satin

To soften the image I just went over the stamped image with a nearly dry waterbrush.

This next card has a bit more colour in it and I have the gorgeous and immensely talented Glittery KT to thank for the colouring in of the stamped image.  Yet another reason I love going away with friends for the weekend!
This card was inspired the challenge at:
Quirky Crafts - sketch
One stitch at a time - embellish it - i chose gems

Supplies used:
Patterned paper - CD SWALK volume 2
Stamp - SWALK engaged

Thanks for popping by.  I hope you're loving this new range as much as I am.  It was also great to Sheena on TV this morning with her new range.  When I get 5 minutes I'll be having a play with her gorgeous new stamps.  In the meantime I have just one more quick card for you, with inspiration from:
Stampin' for the weekend - Halloween
Stamp something - Halloween
Chicken soup - recipe #16
Creative Inspirations - Halloween/Fall
Stamp with fun - Halloween
A Spoonful of sugar - Halloween
A Passion for Papertrey - CASE challenge - I cased a card from the lovely Dawn McVey and I'm loving it so much I'm going to make a few in different colours this weekend.

Here's Dawns' card

And here's mine

Supplies used:
Card - PTI orange zest, true black, white
Ink - PTI orange zest and true black
Punch - Stampin' Up

I must remember to buy deicer as it's a little frosty here this morning.  I'm glad I'm not going anywhere and instead will get writing a newsletter.
Have a good day.
