It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, and I absolutely LOVE this weeks color challenge- cause me always like a POP of color!! Yep, it’s a color challenge this week and this adorable sample that I made for my SALE-A-BRATION Kickoff is a perfect fit. I had to add a little shine in there too so I have just a little gold as well. LOL! I used the CELEBRATE TODAY set from the OCCASIONS CATALOG. I LOVE this set, it’s so stinking cute!!
I love anything with black, white and a POP of color so this challenge was complete fun for me.
I attached a few hearts together to create these 3d Heart Hot Air Balloons, I think they are pretty cute. I simply scored them in the center and adhered the sides to one another, then opened the flaps in the back and secured them into place. I also used the sentiment from the BRAVO set and some Melon Mambo ink to set that off. Easy Peasy… Lemon Squeezy!
I love how simple this card is, but it would be sort of a pain to mail… possibly?? But I tell you it would be a perfect match to a gift bag that was stamped and embellished this way too. OMG, how cute would that be?! I must try that.
on a side note, I have to get this off my chest… I am horrified with the quality of pictures I have been posting lately… If you don’t know I live down in So Tx and at some point I assumed that it is always fairly sunny and warm. I mean I have become quite accustomed to wearing flip flops and open toed shoes for a majority of the year here… but this winter (which realistically started about a week or 2 ago) is crap. The skys have been constantly gray, with a tease of sun shine for a fleeting moment here and there… and the temps have been SUPER cold, and it’s humid here so it’s like slap you with a wet towel kind of cold… I think I am going to have to invest in a lighting kit because clearly mother nature is of no help to me??
Ok, so now that I have vented… thanks for listening to me, LOL!! I have to say you MUST come and play along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments. It’s such a great source of inspiration and just plain fun! Create a project, can be anything, using the colors from the inspiration board and enter it into the challenge. I love how challenges really help me think outside the box, maybe it will for you too?
Remember, ALL NEW WEEKLY DEALS came out this morning… you got to get you some!! There are some MUST HAVE items in this weeks picks. Those circle framelits are a MUST and that Angled Tag Topper… a MUST!! Honestly all the punches are a must, plus these are on sale- so it’s ok
Time is running out… have you registered for your upcoming CREATIVE CLASSES??
