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

Red and Black


Hello, It is already February and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Karen is our fabulous hostess and she has a perfect color duo for this time of year. If you are not into making Valentines there are many other avenues you can take with these colors, as you will see by the DT’s cards over on the CH blog. We also have Michal joining us as a guest over at CH for this challenge! Welcome, Michal. We are happy to have you!

I made two cards for this challenge and didn’t realize the black looked so bad on the second card until after I photographed it. 😦

First Card: I made my heart windows with an MFT heart die. The love die is from Gina K and the XOXO stamp and the You Melt My Heart stamp are from MFT. A very quick and simple Valentine.

Second Card: Honey Bee Stamps fluttering hearts stencil. The stamp set is also Honey Bee Stamps and is called; Stronger Together. I used my fabulous Hero Arts Postage dies and did some masking as well. Of course, my Oxide Inks was my ink of choice.

Hope to see you over at Color Hues where I know the DT’s work will inspire you! They always inspire me! Please take care and Happy crafting! Nanc’

  1. Hey, it’s a twofer—and two wonderful cards! Ever since I first saw you use that fabulous Love die from Gina K, it’s been on my wish list! I love the way you’ve designed that card–so many little details that add up to WOW–the tiny silver hearts, the little xoxo . . . and I love the way you cut the hand from the black heart in the second card.

  2. These both look great!!! I’m a sucker for white space so I’m a bit more partial to the first one. Hoping to play along!

  3. I love the love die too, its difficult to get American supplies over here as as soon as they come into stock they go out the door. Sadly ordering from the US is not an option. My hubby ordered an item and it cost over £40 in taxes and postage for a £35 item! Two great Valentine designs. 🙂

  4. Two cute valentines, Nancy! Love the polka dots on the first and the fun sentiment on the second!

  5. Two great cards. My favorite is the one with the 3 hearts and that love die, so pretty.

  6. I love both of your Valentine cards, Nancy! Such fun designs! Have a great week!

  7. These cards are great designs, Nancy! I love the die cut windows and bold colors!!
