SCTL4 & Cut Cardstock Blog!

Woo hoo! I got some pictures taken so I have some new things to share. Here's my contribution of the Stamping Links To Love challenge for this week - it's a color challenge using Eggplant Envy, Perfect Plum, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss (SCTL4). WOW - five colors, right (I threw in some shimmery as my neutral too!)? It's a great combo though and I had fun with it - I made a "non-traditional colors" winter card using the Chin Up Snowman from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. Isn't he sweet? I have wanted this image all year, but Pamela kept coming out with such great NEW sets each month, I'd end up snagging those for my DT set and not getting Mr. Cutie here. But finally, my last month before "retirement" I got him! *grins*.

I also used the sketch challenge from the CutCardstock Blog for this project - I think it worked great with the various colors in the challenge. Here is the sketch:

I really like this sketch! The background pattern has so many possibilities - you could even incorporate patterned paper or metallic cardstock squares (or stamped BG squares like I used). Cool! Go check out the blog for more cool info! And on a personal note - I have ordered from Cut Cardstock before and they have great paper, great prices and fast shipping! Don't be afraid to try them out if you are new to the company.

PS-Sorry about the photo, I didn't have ideal lighting and the pink looks kind of washed out and the eggplant looks too dark. Oh well, better pic next time! heehee.
