Tuesday is CHALLENGING!!!!

Today at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are doing a Color Challenge, and I LOVE those challenges.  I am so inspired and just LOVE color and today it is so soft and pretty.  I loved these colors so much I decided to use them for my card not just for this weeks challenge BUT I also made these into my SWAP card for my Up-lines demo swap for this weekend. Let’s take a look~
I just love the colors: Pool Party, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, and Basic Grey. 
 I love simple and easy cards, and I thought this would be a great submission for the floral challenge at CAS-Ual Fridays. I just think the more simple cards have such big impact.  I decided to go with an old stand by that I rarely use, HEAT EMBOSSING! I used my VersaMark Ink (perfect for embossing powder and just creating a water mark effect).  I used embossing powder on the leaf image and the large outlined flower image.  The smaller solid flower I used the VersaMark ink direct to paper and it gives such a great tone on tone image. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
I used clear embossing powder, VersaMark Ink, Fabulous Florette Stamp Set, Heat Tool, Basic Grey Satin Ribbon, Pool Party Card Stock, Pink Pirouette Card Stock, Regal Rose Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock.

  1. Oh, I really like the bold colors against the white! They really pop with all that white space!

  2. I love your simple but stunning card! Beautiful cards.

  3. SO pretty! I love the multi-colored embossing, and the little loop of ribbon really draws attention to your beautiful fussy-cut flowers.

  4. Love your layout- So pretty!!!

  5. Way to use the new set!! Like you said, I didn’t like it either, but it’s growing on me. :) Great idea to heat emboss, too….really makes the outlines pop. And I will hang my head in grief over the loss of that satin ribbon. Oh well….something new will help pull me out of depression!!

  6. Fab card, love the design :) Thanks for playing this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  7. This is sooooooo beautiful Erin! I really love clean cards like this! Your little details make it so sophisticated! Love it!
