Challenge #10!

thinkingofyouPhew! I made it through! This challenge was to make 3 cards and SEND them out! LOL!!! At first, it was for birthday cards. I am so bad at my correspondence that I asked if it could be any card (since February is a little light in the birthday department). YES! I am so excited. So, since I knew I would be mailing these cards, I decided to make 4 no-layer cards. Sooooo this card was supposed to be a double. But! I mis-inked it. Now, as you may know, there are no mistakes ONLY embellishment opportunities. Well, in a later card, I did take advantage of that. But not this one. There was no way to save it.

Thick Whisper White card stock, Stazon ink, and colored with markers.  That’s it!  Simple.  But, elegant.  I will post the other two cards soon.  I REALLY liked the way they turned out too.

This card went to my sister-in-law.  Just because….

Another great combo

Here’s another fantastic color combination.  We didn’t have exactly the right colors for this one but this combination, though not quite exact, does work well here!  Tip Top Taupe, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pink Pirouette.  It is actually quite spectacular.  Now, this was a sample made by my partner in crime, Rebecca, she was the mastermind that thought to alternate the butterflies in the dress and on the box.  Tell me that butterfly on top of the box is not stunning!  Oh yeah it is!

Oh the Colors!

There are some beautiful color combinations out there for weddings.  This one is spectacular. Cherry Cobbler, Real Red and Basic Grey.  What I love about this box is the versatility of just what you can do with it.  Yesterday, we cut slats in the lid of the box with one of the colors peeking through.  Today, we cut out a hexagon with a beautiful floral pattern cut out.  Wait until you see tomorrow’s set.  WOW!

I embossed the floral stamp with clear embossing powder and I used the hearts from first box to accent the banner on the second.  Cool, huh?

Bridesmaid Gifts

aday2celebrateInspiration comes from EVERYWHERE! Lately, it’s been coming from my niece. LOL. She has a growing business called The Pretty Pout. She sells lip balms, lip glosses, lip scrubs and more. You should check it out! Anyway, we have learned that the lip scrubs will fit in the hexagon box! YAY!!  I have made a few samples of this box for her to show her what we can do. Over the next several days, I will be posting one of the combinations. I looked up “Trendy Colors for Weddings 2017” and found several really cool ones. I have chosen a few and translated them into Stampin’ Up! colors. Here’s the first. Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.

The only box I can really talk about is the Hexagon box. We used to have the Framelits that made the dresses (It was called Dress Up Framelits – Here’s an example of what I have done with it on this blog). While I have horded mine, keeping it for just such an occasion… You may not have them. For that I am sorry 🙂
