The cards I’m going to share with you today are from another set which hasn’t seen ink for a while and that is…..’A Beautiful Thing’.
I really like the coordinating wheel with this set too and seeing how it also hasn’t seen ink in a while I’ve used it on this first card also.
My first card was inspired by this card made by Kari.
Here’s my creation:
Stamp sets: A Beautiful Thing, It’s Beautiful Jumbo Wheel
Card: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Candy Lane DSP
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
When I finished this card I realised that my last few cards all used a ‘Pink’ as the main colour theme. I’d like to make an effort to use colours I don’t often use or at least incorporate them into my creations a little more. I’m sure you all have those favourite colours you are always replenishing and the others that you hardly ever use.
So with this in mind I set about deciding what colour theme I was going to use for my second card. I figure if I can make 2 cards with each set I’ve neglected for a while I should do okay with my goal of posting more regularly and also about posting more than I did last year. Must remember though to use those new sets from the Summer Mini and also start creating with my Sale-A-Bration sets too. More about Sale-A-Bration later though…..
I started flicking through my Designer Paper Book and came across a piece of Tea Party DSP which contained Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Basic Grey and Pretty In Pink. Now okay I admit there is some pink there again but I swear it won’t be the focus. Next I decided upon a layout. I went with a Mojo Monday Sketch from July being Week 97.
And this is what I came up with…..
This isn’t my usual style of card and I’m still unsure if I like it but yeah, I made my second card and I used some other product instead of hording it. Another goal started……hahaha.
Stamp sets: A Beautiful Thing
Card: So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Tea Party DSP
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Basic Gray, Versamark
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, Circle Scissors Plus, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sherbet Designer Buttons, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Piercing tool & template, crochet cotton (non-su)
So what do you think? Do you have a preference?
I’ll try my best to make the next card using NO PINK at all. Not sure on what set I’ll grab out yet. Hope I can do it.
Till next time……
