I love to play and I love playing with color challenges so my two cards I am going to share in this post use two different color challenges and both cards ended up being made up mostly of colored cardstocks.
First up, I took the Colour Q colors. I have seen a few designers use a starburst type of design with papers and that was how I wanted to use the colors on my card. I took three 5" squares and just cut them apart. All of the cuts were identical, so I alternated the colors and put my square back together.
Another technique I have wanted to use it applying ink to a clear stamp block, the kind you normally attach your cling stamps too. Then that inked block is pressed into the paper, making it the stamp, so to speak. I used a great green stamp pad by Clearsnap and after the block was completely inked, I gave it a spritz of water.
Here is the Colour Q combo.
Next I used the Colour Q combo. I just got a brand new Cricut cartridge, Sweater Weather. Everything on the cartridge looks like a warm and cuddly sweater or mittens, etc. While I used a neat heart image, I thought it still had a winter look with those colors.
Notice the white cardstock too, I used a great Cuttlebug embossing folder. I thought that design went along with my theme.
Here is The Play Date Cafe colors.And for some pics from my Hipstamatic...
We went on down to the beach the other evening just before sunset. It was on the cold side, thus the coats. We had so much fun!!!
I'll share some more pics from this little visit in my next post.
