Pucker Up/ Positively FUN

Hi there!  I have a few cards to share.  Color my Heart is a new challenge for me and I was excited about the color choices.  Play along Here!  The colors are Indian Corn Blue and Ruby- both very pretty colors.

I started with this sketch from Retro Sketches:

I then added Indian Corn Blue and Ruby and came up with this:

I really like how it turned out!  And I love that it is gender friendly!

Inks: Indian Corn Blue, Ruby
Paper: Dakota
Stamps: You Are..., Card Chatter- Birthday

The next card I created came from the inspiration of Dynamic Duos.  So nice to see Spring Colors!!

Inks: Cocoa
Paper: Mayberry, A scrap from Jillibean Soup Winter Tortellini
Stamps: Pun Fun

It really feels great to be making birthday and every day cards again now that Christmas is over!

Thanks for stopping by!

Kim :)

  4. Great job with the Color My Heart challenge! Those colors really do inspire celebration, don't they? I like how you combined it with the Retro-Sketches challenge, too.

  5. Hi Kim! LOVE how you stamped the background for the color dare card! The red and blue are great for a birthday card indeed--and the stars are the perfect addition! Thanks for playing along! :)

  6. Two fabulous cards, Kim! LOVE those lemons-the patterned paper was a wonderful choice! I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week at Inkspirational this week (so you can stay in the running to win the prize!) and at Technique Tuesday this month--I would love to see what you do with our challenges! :)

  7. Two great cards...the RWB is a perfect "guy" card.
