One Day at a Time, C4C141, New SU In Colors!




Happy Saturday, everyone!  It is time for another challenge with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C141).   Silke Kittmann is back with another challenge for us all and this week.  It is time to get cooking!  It is a recipe challenge

The recipe is to use
3 Papers, 3 Flowers, 3 Buttons, 3 Pearls



For my card, I am using Verve's Tag Time, Making a Statement, and newly released One Day Plain Jane stamp sets.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above Tagged Rectangle and Loopy Blooms dies. The loopy blooms die was used to make the layered ink distressed and scrunched newsprint flower perched on my bow. 

For my three papers I combined some NEW SU In Color 2012/14 Raspberry Ripple!  While it is not purely pomegranate, it is close and the card stock is richer.  The designer papers are almost a dead ringer for PP to me, though.  Happy Dancing.   I combined two of  the designer series papers prints with some of SU newsprint.  I used this Life Style Craft's Trelis border die to create my background.  I saw a few cards using this technique via Pinterest this past week and thought it might work with this die.  I love how it turned out.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Betty

  9. Beautiful card! I love the vibrant fuchsia against the distressed text and tea dyed looking ribbon. Your bow is so pretty and the little text flower tucked in the center is a really sweet addition. Very nicely done! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  16. Betty,
    I was inspired by this card you created. First, I love the color of that SU CS and the die used to create the curvy lattice. I had hubby buy that die the same day I saw it in your card. Second, the message "One day at a time" hit me personally. I have been helping my mom from MN to TX. Mom fell in Feb and had to give up her home and go into assisted living. We had to travel to Tx and spent 3 weeks cleaning out her home and getting it ready for sale. Mom is always telling me that today was "just another day" which sounds hopeless to me. "One day at a time" has more hope and self determination inferred. Thank you for the creative inspiration and the mental one. I plan to get that plain Jane and make mom a card to encourage her. She is in fairly good health, mentally sharp but has Parkinson's and can not walk much. She is 91 on Tuesday next week. Hugs, Martha
