Today, I’m sharing 2 cards that I created from the Color Challenge that we had 2 weeks ago.  You can see my original card HERE.  I had so much fun using the pink combo with the Beautiful Peacock that I made another stepped up version and a very quick & simple card.

Beautiful Peacock

For the background, I selected a beautiful, Powder Pink background paper from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.  Behind the stamped image, I created a ribbon ruffle with the Powder Pink shimmer ribbon.  This is an easy technique with a big WOW factor!  Simply place some strong adhesive along the edge of the cardstock.  I used the Tear & Tape adhesive on this project.  Next, you’ll fold the ribbon back and forth along the adhesive, creating the ruffle.  I popped the entire panel up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Beautiful Peacock Close Up

Another fun ribbon technique is to fray the ribbon.  Just pull on one of the strings gently until the ribbon begins to fray.  I used this piece to act as a fancy tail feather.  A few basic pearls were also added to accent the card.

Simple Beautiful Peacock

If you are short on time, you can easily create a beautiful card with some simple stamping.  The body of the peacock and greeting were stamped in Basic Gray ink.    For the feathers, I used the same color combination but stamped off to create more depth of color.

Be sure to check out the card designs from our amazing TGIF design team.

Amazing You FMS323

Today’s card features the Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You Thinlits, and Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I created it for a special friend using the layout from this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS323

A dear friend was in a head-on collision near my home last week.  When she couldn’t reach her husband by phone, I was her next call.  Therefore, I rushed to the hospital to meet her in the ambulance and was very surprised at how “good” she looked.  After scans and x-rays, she was cleared with a small fracture in her neck.  She’s going to be alright.  There have been some rough days since the accident and there will probably be more to come, but I’m simply amazed at her strength.  I am so thankful that her life was spared and that together we can continue to laugh, cry, and watch our children grow.

 

Amazing You

The Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper is a show-stopper on its own with the silver embossed images.  I added a silver foil die-cut “amazing” from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies and Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon that has been colored with the light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  To complete the greeting, I stamped the words in Marina Mist and Old Olive inks before cutting them apart.

Amazing You Close Up

Up until last week, I had diligently been working ahead on blog hop projects, videos, and posting on social.  I tend to shut down creatively when I’m feeling overwhelmed, but I’ll still post some of my now “late” projects this week as things return to normal.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Another Day, Another Birthday

It seems like there have been a lot of birthdays in my circle of family & friends lately.  Thank goodness there is an endless supply of sketches over at Mojo Monday!  This week's sketch can be used for either a round or a square card.  How fun!

Because this birthday card is for my mom, I had to incorporate her favorite color–yellow.  I'm not a big fan of yellow, but I saw this really cute top at Kohl's the other day…..inspiration had struck!

By combining the colors of the top and the sketch, I was able to design this card.  I also used the Vintage Vogue and Whimsical Words stamp sets just as I did on my last birthday card.
