Pink and Blue

Did you know that in the Close To My Heart Idea Book there are color suggestions on every page? Well, almost every page. Each page that displays papers and stamp sets shows the colors used for the artwork on those pages. That's how I decided on the colors for these cards. I looked on page 55 of the Spring Book and chose Bamboo, Blush and Crystal Blue.
I used those colors and the Springtime stamp set D1415 to make these cards. On this 4.25x5.5 card, I also used Blush Ribbon and D1361 Thank You. Aren't the boots great? The spots on the card are made using the eraser end of a pencil dipped into ink.
Here I used a piece of Blush ribbon also on the 5x5 card. I added a bit of Grey Wool for the handle. The patterned paper is the reverse side of the plaid in Twitterpated.

This is a 3.5x8 card using pop dots for dimension and Crystal Blue buttons from the Winter Button Collection. There is Waxy Flax in the buttons. So easy to use!

Here is another picture of the card.

On this card, I used the April Stamp of the Month. Our Acrylix stamps can easily be shaped to fit on this circle. There are Bitty Sparkles in the centers of the flowers. The patterned paper came from the Emporium Paper Pack and the That's Amore paper pack.
