Dynamic Duos #47

Today’s Dynamic Duos challenge is for the colors Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler.
Fun, right?!


I really love the aqua and red combo.  This is what I created:


I opened my new Paired Up stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps in order to create an anniversary card.  Although, I suppose this is a little nontraditional and rustic for an anniversary card.  But I like it!  I don’t really send out anniversary cards, but I had a good time creating this, anyway. 😉

I used PTI Classic Kraft ink for the moon, stamping it off once for the lighter shade.  The little leaves are also stamped in Classic Kraft.  I used the two-heart stamp from the Paired Up set and also two other separate hearts from the Tag Its #11 stamp set to create the group of hearts.  I stamped the birds in Pool Party ink and then fussy cut them to adhere them with foam adhesive.


Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Design Team have created and to check out the details for this challenge.  I hope you’ll participate with us!

  5. Oh so sweet Ally!! Love those little birdies with the sponged circle behind, and the texture you’ve added to the image panel is FAB (must use that impression plate more often – love how it looks!).
