Happy Friday Everyone! Those of you dealing with the snow & cold ... I hope you are able to stay in, be creative & drink hot chocolate! That's MY PLAN!!!
Today's Stamp Simply challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog is to use "hearts"! I could provide SEVERAL creations samples for this challenge. I've been asked to create 60 Bridal Shower Invitations using Valentine's Day as the theme ... you know, red-white-pink-hearts, etc.! But of course, I created a seperate, special card for Sharon's challenge.
I was playing around with ideas for the invitations and had these two hearts laying on my work table that I made using different sized Nestabilities Heart dies. The designer paper is Foof-a-la and I have used the little hearts that are left over when you use the new Martha Stewart heart border punch & a white satin bow as my embellishments. This is about as CLEAN & SIMPLE as I get!!
What a fun color challenge is up this week over on The Play Date Cafe blog! This week we are to use BLACK, WHITE, GOLD & SILVER. Since I had this Foof-a-la designer paper still sitting on my table from Sharon's creation, I decided to use it again for this card. My image is from a CD of vintage images I purchased on Ebay a long time back and can't remember the name ... sorry!
I'm sure you all know how difficult it is to photograph anything using metallic paper but I did the best I could. I've used gold metallic to back my image ... using a Nestabilities scallop rectangle die as well as the smallest heart (Nesties classic hearts die). For my use of SILVER, I chose to use silver metallic ribbon over the designer paper strip panel as well as a heart punched out with the new Martha Stewart heart punch and then overlayed a silver heart cut with a Nesties classic heart die. Both the main card & the accent strip of designer paper have been edged using a Gold Pilot marker. Hope you like it!!!
Now I would like to share with you a "glimpse" outside my sliding glass door ... looking across the back yard. I know we don't have nearly as much snow as some other parts of Ohio & the midwest ... but it's enough for me!!
As I type this, the snow has stopped ... but they are saying we are expecting another 5-6" in our area throughout the remainder of the day. We'll see ... the sky is starting to look a lot clearer and I'm thinking it has gone around us. Again ... that's okay with me!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I always enjoy hearing from you! Stay warm, stay happy and keep stamping ... I will come by for inspiration!!! Happy Day Everyone!
