So, here I am with my creation for the Dynamic Duos #38 challenge, which is to use the colors Real Red and Pretty in Pink. Remember that if you don’t have these exact colors from Stampin’ Up!, you can always use what’s in your stash that is close to them. 😉
At this point in time, I know these colors scream Valentine’s Day. But I wanted to do things differently, since I don’t really need very many Valentine cards. Last week was all about father, so this week I went with a theme for Mother.
I used my Fancy Flourishes stamp set, since I can never stay away from it for long. And I tried out my new Heart-2-Heart 12 stamp set. Those little dotted circles are adorable! The sentiment is a Verve Plain Jane stamp.
I purchased the brads a long, long time ago, so I was happy to use them here. I figured a few scattered rhinestones might be nice, and I colored the little flower in the sentiment with a Copic marker. The gingham DP is by Papertrey Ink – I just love the Soft Stone paper pack!
Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Dynamos have created and to check out the details for this challenge. I hope you will participate with us!Allyson Andersen (me) | Christina Barnes | Vicki Burdick | Karen Day | Deanna Dean
