Color Inspiration #28

So this is one of those cards that takes on a life of it's own. These colors were a challenge for me, and I am not hugely happy about how it turned out. But I got it done in time to post, so here it is.

Thank you!

So it was my birthday yesterday and I made my thank you cards today for everyone. And I loved the way this one turned out so I wanted to post it. I am hoping the person I sent it to doesn't come to the blog before she gets it. But I love this card because of this new stamp. Guess where I got the Dollar Store! Can you believe it. So I stamped it twice on white card stock with black ink and then embossed it in clear. Then colored both with the watercolor technique. Then just cut them out and adhered one completely to the front of the card, the second one is attached on top of the other but only at the body, so I could get the dimension. I'm sure it is pretty self explanatory from the picture, I am just excited it turned out so good.

Here is my card for kwerner's color inspiration. The only limit this week was to use any member of the RED family as your main color. I LOVE RED! I think it is my mom's fault LOL. When I was growing up, everytime I would wear anything red she would tell me how good it looked :). Anyway I got this new Sarah Kay stamp from and I couldn't wait to use her. Isn't she cute. To color her I just used my water pen, so simple, and then it is hard to see in this photo but I used dimensionals to elevated the girl. I stamped the 'Happy Hoildays' in a dark red and then embossed it with irradesent glitter. That's about it. Hope you like it.

Here is my entry for the kwerner color inspiration #26. It is very simple this week. Hubby has been off work so not alot of me time. Background is So Saffron with the Wild Wasabi band that I punched with the corner rounder and a 1/8 inch hole punch. Ribbon is Bashful Blue. Flower is Red Rose with a Whisper White button. Like I said nothing to fancy this week.
I'm Dreaming of a white Christmas......... BUT NOT IN OCTOBER! This is what we woke up to Saturday morning (Oct. 11). Luckly it really didn't last long, it was mostly melted by the afternoon. Except for the GIANT snow ball that Laith had rolled. It was about 3 1/2 feet tall.

Here is another Color Inspiration From Kwerner. The bird is water colored in Ballet Blue, the sentiment is stamped in Ruby Red and matted with So Saffron. The ribbon in also Ruby Red, and the flourishes are stamped in Certainly Celery. The card was made from a clear transparency cut at 4 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.

O.K. so this is my very first color challenge so go easy on me. I really liked working with these colors. And if I am honest the thought of Kristina Werner possibly visiting MY blog is sooo exciting (and it kinda freaks me out a little too LOL). Anyway I hope you like my card it is very simple as you can see. It is a standard size card in the chocolate chip with the kiwi kiss torn along the bottom, the flourish is stamped in kiwi kiss and embossed clear. The little pumpkin (in pumkin pie) was cut out with my cricut, using the doodle charms cart, cut at 2 1/2". The scollop at the top is my new Martha Stewart border punch, I LOVE IT! That is punched in the very vanilla. K so there it is everyone wish me luck on my first attempt. :)
This is a tri-fold card. Here is the link to Dawn's video with instructions and dimensions. The other pictures show the cards close up and the inside of the cupcake card. These are so simple and quick to make. Enjoy!
