This week at Just Add Ink the challenge was to Just Add Kathy Tanner. I had never seen Kathy's blog so my first task was to check it out - Kathy's blog is now on my list :). After checking through her posts for 2011, I had a list of favourites then I had to narrow it down and settled on two.
The first is for my nephews 21st next month:
I instantly fell in love with the bright colours Kathy
had used. I'm sure this card will be made again. It's a great way to use up the offcuts we all seem to accrue. I've used a retired stamp set Starring You with white embossing powder.
Stamp - Starring You (retired)
Card Stock - Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Other - White Embossing Powder, Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die
My second card is a sympathy card - had to make 3 this past weekend :( I find it hard to get the right layout that reflects the tone of the card but I think this layout has worked well. Check to see Kathy's
Stamp - Pocket Silhouettes, Thoughts & Prayers
Card Stock - Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink - Elegant Eggplant
Other - Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon, Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder
Thanks Kathy for giving us so many ideas.
