VC-Rocks Blog Hop - the fun begins again NOW!

I am so excited to once again be part of the VC-Rocks Blog Hop! There is a great line-up of ladies participating in this hop, so if you are one of my followers and started here, please, continue on with the next hopper and go through the whole group to see the great ideas presented by these stampers! Or, you can go to the VC-Rocks blog and start there and work your way through the list.

If you have already been working the list, you may have landed here from Artful Imagination, the blog of Kym Schwinkendorf.

Here is my share - two takes on one card, using French Filigree and Friends Never Fade. Although I do not have a picture of the inside, I used sentiments from Messages for Mom - and all of these sets may be purchased through my SU website (just click on SHOP NOW when you get there)!


The first sample is made using a color combination suggested by the Color Coach - Rich Razzleberry (textured CS and ink), Pretty in Pink (CS and ribbon) and Early Espresso (ink, stamped on Soft Suede). The sketch was loosely based on the King of the Grill sample in the Summer Mini Catalog. I decided to have a little fun with the ribbon and wrapped it twice before knotting it in a simple knot.

This second sample is the same card - but I used Old Olive (ink and CS), Pumpkin Pie (ink and CS) and Daffodil Delight (ribbon and CS)! I just love this new color, AND the new skinny taffeta ribbon - isn't it fun?


OK, you've probably been here long enough! Jump on over to Donna Rogers' blog: High Altitude Creations and see what she has cooked up for you!


Thanks for stopping by! And be sure and come back for more goodies as I finish unpacking and settling into my temporary home while our house is being built!

I like the unusual treatment of wrapping the ribbon around twice. It really makes the cards special. Thanks for the inspiration.

Now Nancy - I was gonna avoid the new skinny ribbon. I haven't bought any and I haven't been tempted and now you went and blew that for me.

Why did you do that to me?

And I am also avoiding the color coach but I sure like the color combo it suggested.

What a great little enabler you are!

Teresa said...

Wow, I haven;t done that color combo yet. LOVE the Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede together! And what a difference by just changing the colors! TFS!

Kimm BT said...

Wow both color combos are great!! the purple is nice and rich:)

Kari Rieck said...
