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!
