Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge: You're Lovely

Good morning!  Well it's another Monday, which means we have another winter storm we're dealing with, I must admit, I'm really ready for spring.   At least we can get some feelings of spring with this month's Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog color challenge, I love these bright and cheery colors.  The cardbase is Rose Red and I added a layer of  Perfect Plum and then Whisper White.  The white layer is embossed with the Big Shot and the Needlepoint Border Textured Embossing Folder.  I also added a piece of Marina Mist DSP from the Perfect Polka Dot Designer Series Paper package.  I used a piece of Silver Ribbon to cover the edge of the DSP.
For the stamped greeting I used the You're Lovely stamp set (this is one of the FREE items you can selected through the end of the month during Sale-a-Bration).  I inked the image up twice, one in Rose Red and cut it out with the Big Shot and the Deco Label Framelits.  I stamped it again after coloring in the image with Stampin' Write Markers and punched out the circle with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and then used markers to color in the flowers.  To create a mat for the image I cut a frame with Perfect Plum cardstock and the Deco Labels Framelits before embossing it with the Fancy Fan Embossing folder.  I used dimensionals to attach the greeting to the card for added texture.

I really had a lot of fun with this color challenge and we would love for you to come and join us, it'll help you get out of the winter blues and remember spring really is just around the corner.
Happy stamping,
Pin It!
