Return..part 2

Hello again!  I kept up with the creative ideas flowing last night until I went to bed.  And again this morning :)  Here's a few more cards and a tag too!

 My daughter's birthday is coming up and she loves creative little things like this.  It will be perfect to attach to her present.  I used the 2013-2015 In Colors to do a little color blocking. To make the corners like a tag I just snipped off one side with my paper snips and then put that little piece on the other side as a guide as to where to cut so they would be even.

Stamps: Something to Say , Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe,  Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Chalk Talk Framelits, 5/8" Organza Ribbon, Crisp Cantaloupe Baker's Twine (Sale-A-Bration), Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

CHALLENGE: Color Blocking

 Isn't this a fun little card!  I used the Circle Framelits to make my holes in my "cheese" card base.  I spent a bit of time coloring this morning on the next card to I wanted this one to be quicker so I just used my Stampin' Write Markers with complimentary colors to give it some depth.

Stamps: Giggle Greetings
Ink: Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral
Paper: Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Accessories: Circle Framelits, Sponge Daubers, White Baker's Twine

 I did it.  I finally caved in and bought the Blended Bloom stamp set.  I've just seen too many gorgeous cards made with it and I wanted to be part of the action.  Now - I haven't invested in the Blendabilities just yet - my wallet only stretches so far...  I just used my aqua painter to color this beauty in but I really like it.  And coloring is super relaxing so two wins!  I used my Score board with the diagonal plate to make the background and then sponged over the whole thing.

Stamps: Blended Bloom, Flower Patch
Ink: Tangelo Twist, Soft Suede
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Watercolor Paper
Accessories: Simply Scored, Diagonal Plate, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Hexagon Punch, Stampin' Sponges

 Just a close up of the flower - I love how it turned out!

 I have to admit - I don't love this card.  However, I still post most of my creations in case they are a starting point or inspiration for someone else.  My kids like it though, so I guess I know who to give it to!  For some reason, my Pink Pirouette Ink and Paper do not appear to match in color on this card.  Maybe I had some residual ink left on my sponge dauber before I dipped in into this color.

Stamps: Just Sayin"
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Strawberry Slush
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask, Word Bubbles Framelits, Simply Scored, Hexagon Punch
