You Can and You Will

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun color combo to play along with!

I friend of mine asked me for an inspirational/encouraging card so I started by figuring out the sentiment I wanted to use. I grabbed one from the Power Poppy set M-Powering Words (it's a retiring set but you can still pick it up for a deeply discounted price!). I then looked at the colors and decided which ones I wanted to use for the image panel. I went with the yellow and gray in the photo and stamped the background stamp with both colors. The gray got a bit muddy but it's there, I promise :) I then stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral on top of the yellow/gray background.

The background paper I used is some retired SU DSP I have in my stash. As soon as I saw the color of this challenge I instantly thought of this paper and it ended up working out perfectly!

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret these colors!

Blowing You a Kiss

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun color challenge for you!

For my card I used a Pure Innocence stamp from MFT called Winter Kisses. I used the reds from the graphics on her hat, scarf, gloves, coat pockets and boots and then the dark gray for the rest of her outfit. I snuck in a bit of the cinnamon color as her shirt that's visible below the scarf and her hair is also the cinnamon/brown color.

The layout is from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. I haven't been able to play along with them in what seems like forever and this weeks sketch is such a fun one! My patterned paper came from a Christmas pad that I picked up at Michaels.

The sentiment from the new MFT PI was a bit too long so I used a sentiment from a retired PI that worked perfectly with this image!

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see what you do with these colors! There is also still some time left to play with Freshly Made Sketches!

Power Poppy Pure Fragrance

Happy Friday! Today Power Poppy has 2 fabulous new images available in the store, Pure Fragrance and Volumes of Beauty. As always these new digital stamps are brimming with gorgeous details and are so fun to color!

For my card I used the Pure Fragrance digital stamp. I just love the pretty arrangement of flowers in the bottle. I decided to use colors that made me think about my grandma and the arrangements she would have around her house. She was a florist and had such a beautiful eye for color and knowing exactly what would look great with what.
