Wonderful Color Combo

Just thought I would share a couple of cards I made last week with the Color Challenge on SCS. The colors were Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, and White.

The first card is one that was also made for the CAS challenge. The birds are a part of Inkadinkadoo's Birds Galore and the sentiment is from SU! set All Year Cheer 1, a retired set. The card is 5.5 inches square and the red layer is popped up on dimensionals.
The next card is one that I made for my dad for father's day. The layout is one that I used before with different images and colors, and I like this combination even better. The image stamps are from the SU! set Winds of Grace and the sentiment from an old retired set called Wonderful Wishes. I used a strip of Ruby Red CS on this card where I had used ribbon on my previous card. Why? Well, no such thing as Ruby Red ribbon in my stash!
Best thing about this card? My dad really liked it!
Blessings for this glorious week :)

Curious Iridescent Papers

I love these papers, but sometimes I forget to use them. I purchased both Cryogen White and Poison Ivory with some friends...from Cut Card Stock . I often think of ideas to use this beautiful, shimmery, iridescent paper, but today I actually did something about it. Some time ago I did a wedding card in white and ivory, and that provided the inspiration for doing this wintery both ivory and white.

The card base is Poison Ivory. The first layer, in Cryogen White, is popped up, as is the image layer in Poison Ivory. The snowflake is stamped in SU! White and embossed in Iridescent Sparkle EP. The ribbon is SU! narrow white organdy. Hope you enjoy these pictures!

Being Krafty

Recently I made more cards with Kraft cardstock than I ever have before. I thought I would share some of those with you.
This first card is for this week's CAS18 challenge : a color use Kraft, Corals/Pinks, and one other color. I added black for this one. See my gallery for details.

This is also for the CAS18 challenge. White is my additional color here. I have wanted to make this card for a long time and now I had a reason to do it! Details in my gallery.

This Tangerine and Kraft card was for the CAS17 challenge on SCS, which was an inspiration challenge, using beach towels and totes from Land's End. I chose a tan bag with orange handles that had butterfly fabric for the top closure. You can see it here. The details are at this link.
Hope you enjoy these!
