I Co-Ordinated - #1


You may recall this post a little while back. I stamped on DP (designer paper) for the first time and I loved the way it looked!! Well....I decided to set myself another couple of challenges...and one involving PINK!! I found this card on SCS. I thought of the DP's that I had and the colours that I could's what I came up with....

Now I have never made a set of co-ordinated cards before....let alone the shock and awe of using PINK, but I am happy with the way that they turned out. I uesd the Pink Pirouette side of the Bella Rose DSP (sadly now retired...##sniff##) and Riding Hood Red ink. Here are the cards individually...


I loved the way the ink looked on the different DP's

Now the last wee trick I wish to share with you is with regards to the sentiment. Now I have a LOT of punches, but sadly I can not aquire them all (dare to dream). Now I have RACKED my brain to try and recall where this original idea came from and for the life of me I cannot find if it is you...thanks you so v v much!! The RHR punch resembles the current SU Modern Label Punch, but it is not.....I punched the Scallop Oval Punch and cut it down to resemble it....HOW CLEVER!!!! So thanks who ever you are!! I think it looks FAB!!

Hey Lynda, great coordinating set. I so love Bella Rose and have a huge stash to keep me going long long after retirement lol.

Love the stamping on DP, I've not done this before myself so will have to give it a try.

That little punch trick came from Marelle Taylor, I use it too - but am expecting delivery today and it includes the modern label punch - finally!

Sooo pretty in pink - awesome job - I keep forgetting about this technique - but that's maybe because all the stamping I do these days then needs colouring- LOL.

I am sooooooo proud of you ... PINK!!! Totally out of your comfort zone ... you brave little chicken! Love the label idea. If you have the square scallop punch ... you can do the same trick ... just turn it so the corners run horizontally and trim the top and bottom. (A Paula Dobson idea). I love it! Hugs xxaxx
