Happy Monday everyone and here we are agin with coffee and a card. I tell you something I needed my coffee this morning it is Baltic outside. I have my coal fire roaring and plenty of layers on and I can still feel a chill. Nothing warms us up more than a little J'taime .....a little amore, and so in the week of luuuuurve I had to bring more valentines cards. Im a hopeless romantic and I love valentines.
I do appreciate however, that not everyone wants traditional red and white and so again I came up with a colour alternative in blue and white. To be more precise I used Night of Navy card, Dapper Denim ink and Floral Boutique DSP. Blue and white is just a timeless combination and so elegant. I used the Blooming Love stamp set and purposely choose the " friend" sentiment. The reason being is to remind stampers that this stamp set is versatile and can be used at any time of year. Simply changing the colour and sentiment changes it from a love theme card to a birthday card, or thank you card.
Now this is no huge revelation. In fact, Stampin' Up! boffins already knew this long before you or I and design stamps carefully for versatility .. see up there for thinking and down there for dancing Stampin' Up! got it covered .
So while I finish my brew, as we say up here on the chilly Yorkshire Pennines, get yourself comfy and watch the video tutorial.
