Tonight I am sharing a card that I created for the color challenge at Stamp TV hosted by Tina Gilliland. The color combo was red, ivory and kraft. My base card is SU! kraft card stock and the red and ivory are Gina K's Pure Luxury in Lipstick Red and Ivory. I tore the edge of my red strip and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with a border embossing folder. I then stitched on a border and ran some ivory satin ribbon down the red edge. I created my frame using Nina Brackett's Lovely Labels stamp set by Gina K. Designs. I stamped the label in SU! Riding Hood Red and then used my Nestabilities to cut it out. I then pulled out another one of my favorite Nina sets, Lovely Shelf, and stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the kraft card stock. Using my Memento marker in Lady Bug, I colored and stamped just the flower blooms (this stamp is actually two flowers with leaves in a vase) around the sentiment. Using markers is a great way to customize your stamps to exactly what you need :) The framed sentiment was then added to my card and I attached a bow to the top. My final addition to this card was the flower. To create it, I used a random felt shape, layered a silk flower on top, used a vintage button from Grandma's stash for the center, and then added some Martha Stewart branches.
It felt so good to finally have some time to play tonight :) What a great stress relief from my long day at work. I hope you like what I came up with!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
