SP Color Combo #112

Another post today! I'm on a roll. I also wanted to enter this challenge as well at SP & Company's blog because I love her color combos. Always pairing fresh colors together and really making you think!! I love that. I grabbed colors as close to the palette as possible, so here's my take!

Again, using my new stamps I just got, the distressed circle background one has been on my wish list for a looong time since I first saw it at Archiver's. Well, that was the first one that went into my basket. I am loving it, so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of that one in future cards...

And the whole reason I bought this Technique Tuesday set by Ali Edwards is because of the coloring factor. I knew these would be adorable colored in various colors and I can see I was right.

The camera didn't pick it up, but I traced each of the letters in celebrate with my clear Spica pen. It adds just the right amount of sparkle to this card. I love it and I hope you do, too!! Go over and play along at SP & Company!!

SP Blog Hop for August 2011

Hi there! I am submitting the card below for the blog hop happening right now on SP & Company's blog and the theme is PURPLE. Not a color I use a ton, so this was really fun for me to do something out of the ordinary :) I just got this new Hero Arts stamp yesterday at Archiver's during their fantastic, one-day-only sale and I knew when I bought it I was going to use it for this project.

I really wish the camera could pick up the Glimmer Mist I used all over the flower. It adds a really simple but elegant shimmer to the whole flower just making it pop! And of course, I got to use my purple Copics. And the sentiment at the bottom is from a Technique Tuesday set by Ali Edwards. I just love her handwriting and thought it went so well with this simple but elegant card.

I hope you love it :) Thanks for stopping by!! Remember you can view this larger by clicking on each image!

SP Color Combo #111 & CFC 13

I wanted to kill two birds with one stone with these two great challenges! I'm hoping it was okay that I combo'd the two! I don't get a ton of crafty time available to me, but I wanted to participate in both.

Here is the color combo challenge that SP & Company had on her blog:

And for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, it was to use a 4x9 card utilizing the "white"/negative space on the card! LOVE me some white space. As a graphic designer, I don't always get to use it, so I embrace it when I'm allowed to!!

AND NOW FOR THE CARD!! I hope you love it, and I know I love getting comments ;) Thanks for stopping by. Sign up to follow my blog, please!
