Simple Birthday

This was my card for a demonstrator "Clean and Simple" challenge to use no layers for a card. This is proof that it you can accomplish a polished looking card without layers. While this type of card will not be my norm, I shall add it to my occasional repertoire.

Here are the minimal ingredients:
Stamps: Happy Moments
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry (mostly markers-some water coloring)
Accessories: Ruler, Water Color Brush

Not My Usual Color Scheme

For some reason this week, I seem to be focusing my blog posts on color. This sample was created using a color challenge I got from my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators to use white, black and grey. I was hesitant at first but was so happy with my results. Sometimes you need to step out of your color zone of comfort and see where it may take you. Try these colors out on your projects today and you may be pleasantly surprised!

Here is what I used:
Stamps: Vintage Labels, Vintage Vogue
Ink: Whisper White Craft
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Grey
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Big Shot Die Cutter, Little Leaves Die

Sending Best Wishes of Love

Here is a card that can have a variety of uses. It can be used for a Valentine card, wedding card, anniversary card, or for any occasion you would like to send best wishes to someone you love. The color scheme for this card was taken right from our Designer Series paper, Thoroughly Modern. A customer asked me last week how I got my color inspiration. While I have many sources, one great inspiration can come from any of the designer series lines of paper. So if you're stuck in a color rut, try the designer series paper colors for inspiration.

Here are this card's ingredients:
Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts, Vintage Labels
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede
Paper: Rose Red, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Thoroughly Modern DSP, Whisper White
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Wide Oval Punch, Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain
