Color Hues #62

We have a new color duo over at the the Color Hues Color Challenge #62! Chosen by talented teammate Cindy I think your going to like this one!

For the tulips on the card I used the BotaniCuts Tulips dies and the Market Basket dies from The Greetery. These tulips make me smile every time I use them. I blended Shaded Lilac and Villainous Potion Distress Oxide inks for the flowers and Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness for all the greenery.

TIP: Placing your die cuts on a sticky mat for ink blending is very helpful when ink blending.

I cut the largest Market Basket with Mirror gold cardstock. I needed to trim the basket a wee bit to fit in with my overall design--so easy. You probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't pointed it out--lol!

I added a few detail strokes to the flowers with pencil crayons, if you are Canadian you likely know what I mean. In the U.S. I believe they are colored pencils. What do you say?

The label on the front of the basket uses a sentiment also from The Greetery called Market Basket Sentiments. 

I made a last minute decision to leave the front of the card without a sentiment to describe the type of card it is. I like to always have cards like that on hand, you never know what you might need in a pinch.

Thanks so much for stopping in today and please head over to the Color Hues to see what the rest of the design team has made to inspire you!

Color Hues #61


We have a new color duo over at the the Color Hues Color Challenge for Challenge #61! Design team member Steph chose our new unique colour duo of Peach and Kraft! So pretty!

I completed the Concord & 9th Spring In The Classroom classes and using the stamp and dies that were a part of the class for my card. I used The Big & Bold stamps and dies as well as the Pretty Petals dies. The large die from The Big & Bold creates a debossed image onto a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card front. The smaller dies from The Big & Bold can be added to the debossed image like a jigsaw puzzle--so much fun! I filled in my puzzle using peach and kraft cardstock. Then I added a few extra flower in black and filled in the centres using the stamp set with peach and kraft coloured inks. My large thank you was a die from the Pretty Petals set that I added to my card from using foam tape.

You can use any floral stamps and dies that you might have to get the same look.

Please head over to the Color Hues page to see what the rest of my fabulous teammates have created suing these colours!
