I love me a challenge, in every aspect of my life… it gives me a point to shoot for. I love playing along with and using color and sketch challenges as inspiration boards for my projects and creations. SO I use them often (typically always) when I sit down to create something. I have fallen in LOVE with the Boutique Borders stamp set, I can’t get enough of this versatile and adorably simple set. For my project today I paired it with another FAB set called Simply Wonderful, which is an exclusive Sale-A-Bration set!
I don’t know what happened… the sun was out and it was beautiful but for some reason the colors in my pic aren’t right. I think my camera forgot what natural light actually looks like and decided to pretend it was nasty outside… So maybe I need a new camera??
This month we are working with a color scheme from Hand Stamped Sentiments, check it out-
I think these colors together look YUMMY, I mean literally… I need some candy now! I took the sentiments from the SIMPLY WONDERFUL set (which is a great all around sentiment set) and using the different colors made sentiment strips to break up the blocks of color. I stamped the adorable scale pattern from BOUTIQUE BORDERS set all along the card front and then drug my ink pads over the sections to create the blocks of color.
But that wasn’t good enough… the card needed BLING! I came back and using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities I colored up some rhinestones and framed the edges of my sentiments. Of course I used my classic Markers to color in the sentient so I could get one stamp to create a multicolored image.
Simple, quick and cute! That’s the kind of card I love! Pop over to HSS and plat along with us, it’s so much fun and you can create anything using the colors for this month challenge as your inspiration. There are still a few days left to get in on the CREATIVE CLASSES for FEB– hurry and register today so you don’t miss out!
