Dynamic Duos # 48

Ok I will admit, I struggled with this week’s Dynamic Duos colours…. a lot!

The first card I made started with some ideas and then didn’t turn out anything like I had intended it to.  The lovely ladies on the Design Team told me they liked it, but I am really unhappy with how it turned out.  However… I promised them I would post it here so that you can see both the cards I made with these colours.  So without further ado……..

I have used some of the Delicate Details Lace tape over strips of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, along with a doily, and the circle image is from Serene Silhouettes stamp set.  There are also layers of the Creped Filter Papers which have been punched out and then sponged with Bashful Blue ink.

The second card using these colours is a masculine one.  I have seen this idea on Pinterest, but unfortunately the card didn’t have a persons name attached to it so I can’t credit them with the idea.  As per usual though, I have changed it and added a few my own favourite techniques and ideas to it.

Firstly, I have stamped the sentiment from Wacky Wishes, then added the strips of coloured cardstock to the base (I have used some Crumb Cake along with the Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie).  I have then stamped in Versamark ink, the seaweed image from By The Tide stamp set, over the cardstock strips.  It is a little harder to see it in the photo than in real life.  The shell image, also from By The Tide, is stamped in Crumb Cake and then cut out by hand. And of course, I had to add some faux stitching!

Please feel free to leave a message and let me know which one you like best, and make sure to check out lots of inspiration from the Design Team.
Happy Stamping!

  1. I actually love both your projects, Chris! You are a definate talent. Both of these cards are fab and they are at totally different ends of the spectrum…one very, very feminine and the other super masculine!


  2. I’m with Jenny on this one (I think her comments are exactly what I had in my mind to say!) That lace tape is very cool – both cards are great!


  3. Card # 2 gets my vote. Simplicity often wins me over. The 1st card was also very pretty, but then, all your cards are great. I’m so glad to have stumbled onto your blog, Chris.


  4. Chris, love seeing your creations each week. Both cards are great but I am really smitten with the second one- especially how you bordered the sentiment with stripes that you versamarked!


  5. I love them both, again echoing the statement of how far apart they are! I love the softness of the first one, but love the bold stripes of the second.


  6. Wow, isn’t is cool when you can use the same colours to make such different cards?! The masculine one looks great with the striped background, and the girly one is so pretty and delicate with the lace and doily!


  7. I think both your cards are great. You’re amazing to come up with TWO cards for this color combo! I really had an adverse reaction to this combo – haha. 😉 I love the soft, feminine feel of the first one, and the modern, graphic feel of the second. Great job on both of them. 😉
