Believe



I love when you see an inspiration photo or cue word and I know immediately what I want to create...and it actually translates to that on paper!  When I saw the PaperSmooches Sparks Challenges this week, I new I wanted red/white stripes with the poinsettia dies from the Reflections set. I quickly created this card in about ten minutes!  Happy, happy crafting for me!  Thinking I might try and sneak another card in for this challenge.  I love stripes!

Hi Lynn, such a beautiful card. I also can't believe how big the boys are getting. Hugs to you for a wonderful holiday season.

This is a technique I keep saying I'm going to try - I'm starting my list, because you always make it look so good (tone on tone stamping and die cutting!) Love the fresh feel of this!

yep the bright red looks fab in stripes and I like the 2 tone reds of the poinettias

Barb said...

I love the angled cut and the way the sentiment just snuggles right in there.

This card is so gorgeous! I love the tone on tone stamping! At first I thought maybe you stamped those stripes....they were so perfect! Either way the card is really fabulous!

10 minutes, really. This looks like a 2 hour card to me. Really love it.

Lindsey said...

Lynn, this card is perfect in every way. I LOVE it and pinned it in about two seconds. I think I'm going to have to pick up all the goodies you used on this card...truth be told, one of the reasons I visited your blog tonight was to decide which paper smooches products to buy. I'm about to place an order for my very first PS supplies and you are my very favorite stamper with their products. Everything you create is amazing.

I love this card. It really stands out. The stripes are perfect and I never thought to use Reflections as poinsettias. Must remember this. And did you use googlie eyes for centers? OMG I love that!!

Kathy Mc said...

Stunning ~ your flowers & leaves really pop against the diagonal stripes. Simple sentiment & lots of white space finish it off nicely.
