Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge was to create two cards…same but different. Either use the same layout and different sets (as I did) or use the same set and create two different cards.
I decided to use the card we did in my class the other night as one and then use the same layout for another card. The heart card from the set Always used the Thumping technique with markers. Since I used two colors close together in hue (Rose Red and Regal Rose), the Thumping color variation is subtle. I also used the new Raspberry Fizz designer paper! Love the bright colors. I pulled out a little used color, Orchid Opulence, for the base of my card! It goes surprisingly well. I used a strip of Rose Red for the Scallop Edge punch. Always is stamped in Rose Red and then the little flower medallion in the center with Cameo Coral, and I added a gold mini brad to the center. I punched the white with the 1 1/4 circle and the Cameo Coral with the 1 3/8 to mat. The circles are popped up with dimensionals.
On the second baby card, I used the retiring set, Bundled in Love and retiring paper, Georgia Peach. I took my colors from the designer paper and colored the little hippo with Pretty in Pink markers and my Aqua Painter on Shimmer paper. For Baby was stamped with Basic Black on both the Whisper White and Pretty in Pink and punched with the small tag punch. I hand-cut around the outline on the white to make the lines stand out a little more and secured both layers with an Old Olive mini brad. The Scallop Edge punch was used on Old Olive and the base card is Pretty in Pink. I folded over a couple small pieces of white Taffeta ribbon and placed under the top of the hippo layers for added interest. I think the pink Hippo is just TOO cute!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. As of right now, we have NOTHING planned…I enjoy those types of weekends! Hopefully, I can get a little personal stamping done!
