Hi stampers! I'm in love with one of our new colors Wisteria Wonder! Ok, well I love all of them BUT wisteria wonder is so pretty! I'm not a big user of purple in my stamping but this color has upped my purple usage by about 100%, lol! I'm also not a big eggplant user but this color looks fantastic with elegant eggplant. Just look at this fancy-schmantzy card:
Stamps: Best friends forever, you're a gem
Paper: first edition DSP, lucky limeade, elegant eggplant, wisteria wonder
Ink: Elegant eggplant, wisteria wonder, lucky limeade
Accessories: basic rhinestones, oval and modern label punch, wisteria wonder ribbon, antique brads, scallop circle punches, blossom triple layer punch
It's gor-jus isn't it? Yes, I'm channeling Jan Tink and YILM! I haven't been very excited about any of the cards I have made lately but I really love this one! I really thought I'd have trouble with the BFF set I got at convention as it was one I had passed over in the catalog many time but I'm finding a lot of uses for it. It's great for backgrounds and accents!
The color combo used here is actually from the color coach. I hadn't been using it much lately and have been kid of stumped for combos, duh! Open up the color coach Mindy! I LOVE the bright pop of lucky limeade here!
The flower medallion as I like to call it was super easy to make. I should make more cards with big, fancy stuff on them. Yes, they are a pain to mail but it's not like I actually MAIL many of the cards I make anyway, right? LOL! Gotta get better at that! Anyway it was just punched out, balled up, and sponged. Poke a hole in all of them and then put the brad through. Then I just glued some ribbon on the back! Stamping on the first edition paper is also one of my favorite things to do!
I think that about does it for this card! Time for me to go run 3 or 4 miles...or try at least. I waited until later since it's so hot out and now I want to stamp instead, haha! Hopefully I'll get some stamp time afterward...wish me luck on BOTH! Happy stamping!
