When we think of hearts and valentine's, we always think "red". I was cleaning up all my stamp sets last month and I found this stamp set that is now retired -- it has heart images. I decided to challenge myself by coming up with cards using this stamp set using no red ink or red cardstock whatsoever.
These are the cards I came up with.
I made several of the design above, using different greetings. I used So Saffron and Tangelo ink (stamped off once for a lighter shade).
Then I came up with this -- I thought the black background made the colours pop! I used my white gel pen to create the stitching lines around the black layer. It has been a while since I played with my gel pens. Sometimes I put things away in attempt to create some form of order in my chaotic supply stash and forget that I even own certain things. I think I will be playing with my white gel pen more often!
I was quite happy with how both sets of cards turned out. I have created more cards using another cute stamp set called "Zoo Babies" -- all animal images. I'll post them next time so stay tuned.
We spent a wonderful 5 days last week in New York visiting family there as well as in New Jersey and Princeton. I will blog about that visit this weekend so watch for it!
Have a good weekend everyone! Keep smiling.
