I also made this card for my ABC Challenge blog and this week is a color challenge using the colors: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, and White or Vanilla. I decided to go with white. Below is the color challenge for this week's challenge. If you have time come play along with us. The design team members have been working hard at our challenges and we'd love to have you join us. If anyone could help spread the word about our challenge blog I would really appreciate it :)
I used a current Stampin' Up! stamp set called Stipple Blossoms and this set is a two step stampin set. I began my stamping by taking the more solid flower images and stamping them using pretty in pink ink. Then I stamped the more open/filler stamps using real red ink. Next I just added a few leaves, again using the more solid leaf images and a lighter green ink, certainly celery ink and the open/filler leaf images were stamped using wild wasabi ink.
The flower stamping was really quick and easy, especially if you are using a clear mount set like I did because you can see where you are stamping a little better than if you were using a wood mount set. I never thought I'd say that since I'm such a wood mount type of gal, but I'm learning to love my clear mount stamps more and more.
To complete my card, I added my sentiment in the upper right hand corner and I added a small strip of designer series paper towards the bottom of my card. I then added some real red ribbon along the top of my card and I tied a small piece of twine over the knot of my ribbon.
I hope you liked my Valentine card. I have another Valentine card I made and I'll post that one tomorrow so be sure to stop on by! Have a great rest of the day!
