Dynamic Duos....Hello


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card i made using the color challenge this week on the Dynamic Duos Blog.


I am excited about this card, finally I made a card I am happy with, it has been awhile and I was feeling my mojo had left for good. I used the new Stampin Up Flower Shop stamp set with it's matching punch. I inked up my flower with Blushing Bride ink and then used my Basic Black marker to color in the centers, after gently wiping away the Blushing Bride ink from the stamp with a Q-tip. I stamped onto some Very Vanilla card stock and then punched out with the pansy punch.


The base of the card is Basic Black card stock and then a layer of Very Vanilla card stock. The next layer is some DSP from the Modern Medley paper pack.
The next layers are more basic black and some Blushing Bride DSP from a retired DSP in color pack.
I then used one of my new Chalk Talk Framelits to cut out the tag that I mounted my flowers onto.
I matted the tag with some basic black that I hand cut to fit.
The leaves are Pistachio Pudding  and come from the Secret Garden stamp set and are cut out with the matching framelit dies.
The sentiment is from the "Four You" stamp set. I added some Very Vanilla satin Ribbon, retired, to the top of the tag and tied it with some twine. The tag is added to the card with dimesionals. I finished the card with three basic pearls.
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by today!

Stunning, Vicki! Love that flower punch! Need it! LOL! Think I may need to sign up for SU! again once we move. Being in a remote city with little or no stamping places, I'll need SU! ha!
