Blue Valentine

I am loving this color challenge. I am off to create a few more after finishing this little blog entry. Actually, I am going to change my contacts first. Things are a bit blurry right now...not a pleasant way to create cards.

We had a beautiful snow day today! It has been flurrying gently all day. Our neighbor was just down with his tractor to clear out the lane and our driveway. I have a feeling that by tomorrow morning all of his work will be in vain even though it is supposed to stop snowing soon. Blowing and drifting seems a good possibility.

Well, here is my card for the SCS color challenge this week.

Stamps: Hearts & Stars (Rhonna Farrer - Autumn Leaves), Dreams Come True SU
Paper: White, Taken with Teal, Night of Navy
Ink: Taken with Teal, Night of Navy, Black
Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon, Flower Brad, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

After thinking that I was going to do another cool color challenge like the Blue Valentine above I came out of my stamping room with this one. I was simply a bunch of random ideas put together.

I am a sucker for pinks and chocolates. I used my chipboard scrap as a template to sponge the heart shape on the card. The ink is a monochromatic pad by Dee Gruenig called Shades of Rose. I used Close to Cocoa to doodle around the heart to frame it, then did a little doodling in the stripes with my clear Stardust Gel Pen. This was just a fun card with very little direction, but turned out to be a lot of fun.

Stamps: Sage Advice SU
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Paper: White, Striped
Accessories: Copper Brads, Primas, Word Window Punch, clear Stardust Gel Pen, Grosgrain Ribbon
