Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Hello there! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Our hostess for this week is the talented Barbara who has chosen some really pretty rich colors which are perfect for this time of year.
I created two cards for this challenge since I haven't been posting here on my blog a lot lately. I've been busy getting some things done around the house now that my kids are in school all day and I've been job searching. For my first card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Wreath for all Seasons, Bitty Bird and Think Big Favorites #12. This is a clean looking card (not too much detail) but I wish you could see the wreath in person because I took a red glitter pen and glaze pen and dotted over almost all of the stamped berries on the wreath to give a little sparkle and shine.
For my next card I needed another sympathy card for a customer so I thought the rich colors for the challenge would work nicely. It's fun how you can get such a different look by using all the same colors as my first card, but using one color more, like the "more" mustard on this second card. On this card I used the PTI stamp sets Think Big Favorite #12 for the sentiment and the Houndstooth Basic Background set for the bottom portion.
