Yesterday I felt particularly challenged for some reason. It seemed I had hit a creative road block and nothing was coming to me. I stuck with it though and managed to get three more cards done.
First pick for today is Gray and Black birthday. I liked the simplicity of this card. I wanted just a bit more color, although the gray and black looks great.
Supplies used: cardstock - cream and olive; patterned paper - Little Boy Blue "Little Man" paper in the quite contrary line by My Minds Eye; rub on - calendar-ned jr. sidekicks in miniMarks by America Crafts: corner rounder punch - Fiskars; floss and button from my stash.
I really liked the color possibilities with Six Block Thanks so that was my next pick. There are so many ways you could go: Monochromatic which is all the colors of a single hue; Triadic which uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel (example: red, blue and yellow) or complementary which are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel (example: purple and yellow). For this card I chose complementary because complementary color schemes have a more energetic feel.
Supplies used: cardstock - white, black, two shades of purple and yellow; plastic flower - Queen & Co.; ScorPal scor board; alphabet stickers - vagabond by Basic Grey; 1 3/8" square punch - EK Success; button from my stash.
I had a tough time picking the last card, but decided to go with Birthdays Are Best.
Supplies used:cardstock - white; patterned paper - forget-me-dots and dizzy daisy in alley's wonderland by SEI; border punch - EK Success; puff stickers - alley's wonderland by SEI; happy birthday rub on - kate sidekicks-miniMarks by America Crafts
