Lovin’ our In Colors

True confession time…I beg, borrow and steal a lot of my ideas.  Today’s card was inspired by THIS card posted on the Stampin’ Addicts website.  I played with it and to continue in the true confessions theme, I’m not convinced that I like this version.  However, I definitely like our new In Color selection.  Poppy Parade is that perfect Red Hot Red color , Concord Crush is a deep indigo purple, Peach Parfait is a soft but saturated orange, Pear Pizzazz is a gorgeous spring green, and Blushing Bride….well, what can I say about a color called Blushing Bride?  It’s soft and not too pinky and very, very feminine.  Laurie’s card used all 5 colors and I borrowed her concept to accomplish the same result:

Hearts In Color

  • I {Heart} Hearts and Bella Toile stamp sets
  • Whisper White, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz card stock
  • Poppy Parade and Concord Crush Stampin’ Write Markers
  • Uniball Signo White Gel Pen; Tombo adhesive
  • Full Heart and Heart to Heart punches

The I {Heart} Hearts stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog has made it into the new 2010-2011 Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and catalog.  This set was selected for the Haitian Refugee Relief program through Stampin’ Up! and raised well over $20,000 for the American Red Cross.    Although the fundraising effort is complete, you can still purchase the stamp set as well as the coordinating Full Heart and Heart to Heart punches to make your own “heart-felt” greetings (Get it??  I crack myself up!)

Personally, I think Bella Toile is a bit of an overkill on this card and I’m going to make another using Woodgrain to see if I like it.  Stay tuned.
