Wanted to have a go at these 2 before time ran out. Tricky colours these and in my head I wanted the colour to be in the cardstock rather than the stamping. So all stamping is in grey and broke into my new SU colours for Summer Starfruit. I did think about colouring in the flowers but glad I didn't, as it looks really pretty sitting here on my desk.
What you need
Cardstock - SU Real Red, white, Summer Starfruit, Melon Mambo
Stamps - HAPattern Hearts and Flowers, Year Round Sentiments

Now, this next one evolved rather than trying to fit in a couple of challenges .... Really! I started out with my Hero Arts challenge with what I believe is my oldest HA stamp. I used it in this post many moons ago. So it was easy to visualise it in Dynamic Duo colours of red and black with a touch of Valentine. But the design stumped me till I saw the latest Paper Players challenge. Problem almost solved.
Trying to be a bit arty, and not go down my usual framing route, I tried for off centre ... not tooo bad. And finally it neatly fell into the Addicted to CAS embossing challenge.
I am happy with the finished product, especially the little hearts, a punch Jennifer McGuire has used many times to great effect.
