Dynamic Duos #38

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!

  4. Ally, this is such a gorgeous Mother’s Day card! I really like the soft pattern in the gingham paper and those brads really pop. Good thing you stashed them away…they were just waiting for this awesome card. Love everything about this one! 🙂

  5. I love that you strayed from the norm of Valentine’s Day and went with a Mother’s Day card. Those brads are so much fun and it looks great paired with the stone colored paper!

  6. I love this card Ally! I have some flourish stamps and could totally do this with all the brads & buttons I have in my stash. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I thoroughly enjoy making cards for the children at Sick Kids and also for & with my 7, 5 & 2 yr. old adorable granddaughters.
