For those of you who are wondering about my new blog name, look, and other exciting news (I MET NAMI!!! AHHHHH!), check out last week's blog post HERE.
YAY for Blog Hop Day! I'm so excited about this Sweet & Simple theme because you could do ANYTHING with it! I can't wait to see what all the talented hop participants come up with today!
You should have hopped here from Deb's blog: My Craftroom Creations. Everything she makes is always clean, beautiful, and flawless! I'm sure today is no exception!
To start at the beginning, go to DeNami Design's blog.
I was so excited about this blog hop theme because my time has been so limited recently, and I figured "Sweet & Simple" would force me to keep things less complex. I knew I wanted to use some of the new stamps I bought at the Novi show last week, and I also knew I wanted to use some of the new Memento ink colors I bought there as well. So, then the question was how to use them all. I wasn't sure how these colors would look on paper, but rather than taking the time to check them out, I just dove on it! Here's my card:
I used the gorgeous new Ornate Flourish stamp, leaving the white heart shape in the middle of the card. I stamped the Ornate Flourish in the new Love Letter ink. I thought it would be more pink, but it actually turns out almost bright red. I then stamped the Sending You Love sentiment in the new Teal Zeal ink. However, the card still needed a little "oomph," as I like to say. That's when I ran to get the teeny heart stamp. I stamped that in the Elderberry color, which is a deep purple. Lastly, I knew the card needed a little more sparkle, so I used the new Ice Blue Stickles (also bought last week) to add some glittery dots in a shade that would match the sentiment ink color. The best part? This card only took 8 minutes and 45 seconds to make! WOW! I'm so proud of that! Maybe I CAN tackle those 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenges over on Paulina's Blog! Woohoo!
Here's a picture of everything I used for this card:
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and humoring me as I tested out my new stuff!
