two cards for RSCC #14


I have to admit that Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenges are always very challenging to me. Her color combinations are almost always out of my comfort zone and they almost always kick my butt, too.

This is my second try in two days. The "better one," or at least I think so...


Now, here is my first try. I knew I shouldn't try to make cards on a "glue brain day." Monday was another one of those days. It feels like all you have in your head is glue or the same goo-y sticky substance and no creative juices flowing at all.

I tried to make a card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14. This is what I got...

Definitely not my favorite... For some reason, I just don't like it that much...


ingredients used:
For "have a great day:"
cardstock, ribbon: Papertrey Ink
stamp: Hero Arts
buttons: SEI
embroidery floss: DMC
inks: VersaMark, ColorBox
punches: Martha Stewart, Fiskars

For "thanks:"
cardstock, twine: Papertrey Ink
stamp: Papertrey Ink
ink, ColorBox: VersaMark
clear embossing powder: Stampendous
buttons: SEI
embossing machine, folder: Cuttlebug
dies: QuicKutz
punches: Fiskars, Marvy Uchida, Stampin' Up

Thanks for stopping by!
