Dynamic Duos #38

The challenge this week at Dynamic Duos is to use the colours of Real Red and Pretty in Pink.

I have been struggling with this one for days.  I just had to get the basic black and very vanilla out to help me along with the card.  Just a well we can use neutrals such as black, white, vanilla, skin colours and kraft. It's "Bold and Sassy" week at Dynamic Duos so hopefully my card meets the challenge rules.  If it doesn't that is okay as I really got out of my comfort zone with this card which is good for my creativity.  It really got me thinking on how I could combine the two colours of the challenge without it being too in your face.

The stamp set is "Just Thinking" from the new Mini Catalogue.  I stamped this in Pretty in Pink on Very Vanilla, cut it out using the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies.  I then stamped the image again in Basic Black and cut the centre circle out and layered in on top of the Pretty in Pink image with dimensionals.  The DSP is from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack and the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack.  Ribbon is the Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon.  I got my sewing machine out and added some stitching in black as the DSP mat just needed something.  This is my finished card.


  1. Gorgeous! Love the background the sentiment, and ribbon! A very eye catching interesting it!

  2. This is really beautiful. You did a fantastic job with these colors. I think you added the perfect amount of neutrals, it makes the red and pink colors pop. Beautiful. ;-) Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos.
