Happy Friday!!  & Also, a Happy Birthday to my brother!!!  I love this color combo, Whisper White, Real Red and Bermuda Bay…..

I try to keep cards for the men in my life very simple, they are not really into the fuss of the other cards I make.  A card that’s quick and easy, is better for me these days with the extreme cold days and snow we’ve been getting!  Unfortunately for us in the Northeast there is no end in sight for the next 20 days or so!   Also don’t forget to visit Brandy’s Cards to see all our other creations!

Here is a look outside our window the day after the storm.  Enjoy your day!  Paper Crafting Hugs, until next post………….

We’re Back! Hooray for color challenge day!

It feels so good to be back creating and being on a schedule with my Stampin’ Up buddies and products!

Calypso Coral, Basic Black, Whisper White.

For todays card, I wanted to create a basically “all white” card with little color or colored card stock.  I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and with this color combo it has allowed me to really think about what I wanted to create.

Here it is:

So darn cute but simple, Right? I was so inspired with the new happy watercolors DSP, I wanted to do something similar by creating a polka dot background, but how?  I opened my obscenely disgusting junk drawer in the kitchen and there it was, one of the pencils my boy’s do their homework with.  I used the eraser with the stamp on/off technique to get that subdued color and filled the sheet with dots!  Since we all be displaying Valentine cards the next few weeks, why not start with this one? The Expression Thinlits “LOVE” made it sooo easy for me.  It really took me about 5 minutes to get this card together.  I hope you like it!  Until next post, paper crafting hugs……
