Inkspirations Colour Challenge #96


I'm just loving this week's colour combo and had great fun mixing the colours around to get them to work for me.  I didn't even use a sketch this time!  Came up with this one all on my own but I'm sure it is similar to some out there in blog land and they were my subliminal inspiration for this card.  For the meantime, I'll go with wonders never cease  LOL! 

When I saw red in the mix, I wanted to use it as my pop of colour on the card.  Played around with various ideas and then a light bulb went off and my creative gene started to dance.  The result was Verve's Jotted heart die and "U" die to spell "love you".  Stamped the corresponding words on each die shape and added "so much" at the bottom.

A fun card that may very well be hubby's Valentine's Day card - though remembering to save it and give it to him is a whole other issue LOL!

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.


Just a reminder that each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog.  We'd love to see your card posted as a winner, all you have to do is play along.

What's In It?
Stamps: You and I, Happy Phrases (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Cream Linen
Ink: Chocolate Chip, VersaMark
Accessories: Lacy Circle and Circle Nesties, Jotted Heart and I Heart U Die Sets (Verve), Crimper, Button, Twine, Glue Dot, Half Pearls, Dimensionals

Magic! Sweet little card Marisa. The red heart does pops but all the other elements are perfect too. Love the subtle stamping, crimping & the twine trims. :)

My daughter made a card well ahead of schedule for her grandma, and I tucked it away in a "safe" place. Just found it the other day...and Grandmom's birthday was in September. Ooops.

Hope you find this sweet circle card before Valentine's Day!

Cute, cute dies and a 'hubby'
card for sure. He will surely know it was made with love.

Christina said...

You do such cute things with these dies! The twine looks so sweet wrapped around the "u", and the watermark stamped "love" and "you" are a great touch!

This is so clever Marisa. I love it when you create your circle cards, they always look so good. I love the heart and the U, such a great idea. The textured card stock looks great as well. I hope you are enjoying your week, take care Xx
