Hi stampers! I have a card today for you that is way out of my comfort zone! I saw the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge this week and just wasn't interested. I have a bad habit of glancing at challenges and dismissing them right away if I "don't like them." And it's not that I didn't like these colors, they just didn't do anything for me right away so I moved on. Well, I got to looking at them again last night while browsing the interwebz and decided that I should give it a try anyway. I need to go outside of my comfort zone now and then. And guess what? I made TWO cards with this color combo:-) How's that for out of the zone?
So here is the first one:
Stamps: Friendly phrases
Paper: Basic black, sahara sand, pool party
Ink: basic black
Accessories: Floral fusion die, in color polka dot brads
I was going to do a baby card but then I saw my floral fusion die sitting around and thought this might be the way to go. I kept it clean and simple and channeled my friend Brandi and did some doodling (although she doodles way better than me, I want to be like her when I grow up!). I also am in love with friendly phrases and think it works great with CAS cards and it gives them a whimsical touch.
I did end up doing a baby boy card in this color combo as well and I'll share it soon! I have to work late tonight but I have big stamping plans for this weekend! It's my first weekend off in quite some time AND Saturday is World Card Making day so I'm hoping to spend a good portion of the weekend stamping!!!! I hope you can do the same! If you're in town, call me and maybe we can stamp together!
