Live Beautifully - Together

May is National Scrapbooking Month and for this post, I am featuring a card made with the Live Beautifully paper packet for the special Color Dare challenge to use either the paper packet or the lovely colors featured.  I used a piece of the floral paper and the zip strip on the card base.  I don't have the coordinating stamp set so used a retired stamp that is similar and stamped on Pixie paper then layered on a piece of vellum to give it a bit more texture.  The "together" title is from the May Stamp of the Month and inked with Glacier; final touch of a few clear bitty sparkles and this anniversary card is ready to go in the mail.

Celebrate Card

For this week's Color Dare challenge, I made this card using some different techniques with the different colors. Start with a black and white mat from Some Kinda Wonderful paper packet. Then make a slightly smaller mat cut from White Daisy.  Use the end of a pencil and Canary ink to make a random pattern.  Then use a slightly larger circle stamp inked with Glacier. (Remember, you can use the smooth side of a stamp for this if you don't have the right size circle.) Then a little larger circle stamp using Juniper pigment ink and heat set with embossing powder.  Cut three titles from Thistle paper using the Celebrate thin cut and layer them together, really gives it a raised look.  The next photo shows that a bit better.  Finish off with a few silver sequins and this card is ready to go in the mail.

Thanks for stopping by, check out other entries in this week's Color Dare challenge.

Anniversary card with May SOTM

For this week's Color Dare challenge, I just had to break out the May Stamp of the Month called "Live, Love, Laugh" for a wedding anniversary card with these super bright and cheery colors.  I stamped LOVE with Raspberry ink and cut the letters apart then substituted a heart for the "O" and matted the letters with Lemon card stock and mounted them on the Willow patterned paper.  Next up, use a sponge dauber to ink with Raspberry, layer on the "together" stamp in White Daisy and heat set.  

You can purchase this stamp set for just $5 with a qualifying purchase on my website in the month of May or visit the Color Dare site to see more artwork for this week's challenge.
