Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Red and Blue


Hello the 1st of July! Isn’t that just crazy? It is also time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Sweet Carol has picked the perfect color combo for this summer month, as July 4th is right around the corner!

I know these cards are exactly like my last post, just in a different color combo, but sometimes life gets in the way. I purposely made these in my local High School colors and they did super well in the stores the past couple of months. What I like about this combo, is they are ideal for either male or females.

Card Details: I started off making my own stencil out of these fun Spellbinder rectangle dies that have these fun jagged edges, they are so old and I have no idea what their official name is. Next, I sponged my backgrounds in various colors using Oxide Inks. Then I got out my fun heart background stencil from Honey Bee Stamps and white pigment ink and pounded away using a sponge applicator. The grad die and cap are from SSS, and the rest of the sentiment is from Verve. The fun decorative victorian bevel is made with my large Fiskars cutter.

Now, you have to come check out the Design Team and our guest cards, as each and every time they blow me away with their talent! I am so lucky to have them on my team and call them my friends! Speaking of friends…my local and good friend Carol is our guest this time as well! Not only is she creative, she always pushes my card making abilities in different directions, which is really good for me.

Hope to see you at Color Hues and take care, Nanc’
