Color Hues #56

Happy Monday friends! Today we start another new color duo at the Color Hues Color Challenge #56!  So much fun to use these new colours to make a Valentine's card for my sweetie! I used Catherine Pooler's Two Part Hearts for my card today. This has become a favourite stamp of mine. I love the mixture of patterns and they are so easy to line up for both stamping and die cutting.

Hearts were adhered to the card base with foam tape and/or tape runner.

This is such a great colour combination. I used Catherine Pooler Rockin' Red and It's A Girl ink. I love the complete coverage!

Please head over to the Color Hues if you haven't been there yet to see the amazing cards created by my teammates!

Thanks for stopping in!

Color Hues #55

 Happy New Year my friends!! Can you believe that it's 2023? When I set the date for posting I was shocked when I saw the numbers! Twenty three years ago we were worried that all the computers were going to fail because of Y2K! Now our worries are very different. After three years of the pandemic Covid paid a visit to our house over Christmas, first my daughter, then my husband and then me. Fortunately it wasn't terrible but not something I look forward to ever getting again. 

Today at the Color Hues we are starting a new year of challenges and welcoming three very talented ladies to our Design Team. We begin the year with the Color Hues Color Challenge #55! Don't you just love light pink and gold together. I'm always excited for a chance to do some foiling, I got my FoilPress warmed up and got to work!

I ink blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink on to a panel of cardstock and let it dry. Next I hot foil stamped The Greetery's Deco Triangle on to the panel--swoon! I cut the rectangle, also from the Greetery, and then added champagne glasses from Pretty Pink Posh's Happy New Year, and a foiled Perfect sentiment from PinkFresh.

The foiled details are gorgeous!

A closer look!

I can't wait to see what you make using the new colours!
