Color Throwdown 175 and Just add Ink 101

Saturday, January 21, 2012

The other day my blogging buddy and fellow Massachusetts cardmaker Kim made this adorable tent card.  I just had to give that technique a try.

At first I was thinking of making a card for this week's Less is More challenge to "cut it out" as in make a card with a hole in it.  Perfect for the tent card.  But I don't this qualifies as the type of clean card they're looking for so instead I used the Just Add Ink sketch and the latest Color Throwdown colors of ivory, kraft, olive, and red.

I think I over-dosed on the red shimmer paper, though.  It was incredibly hard to get a decent photo of the card because the glimmer paper kept creating glare and it was just about impossible to show that there's a big hole in the middle of this card.

But see, there really is!

It's snowing here today and I feel like having some comfort food so I'm off to make a pot roast.  Then hopefully I'll make it back into my stamp room so that I can get ahead on some of the cards I'd like to make for a few of my favorite challenges.  Thanks for stopping by!

Another stunner of a card. I don't think you could ever over-do red shimmer for a valentine's day card!!!

Love those beautiful hearts!!!

Very cool Jen! I love the shimmer paper and don't think there can ever be enough lol. I'm a huge fan of dots and spots too so your card is right up my alley. Very sweet.

Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
