I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Marina Mist! It is such a pretty blue. Years ago, my favorite color was probably "blue." Now, if someone were to ask me, I might just answer "Marina Mist." (Well, it's pretty much a tie with Crumb Cake... and Old Olive... and Wild Wasabi... and Cherry Cobbler, and, well... I just love our fabulous colors!)
The Color Coach lists the "Dynamic Duo" as Marina Mist and Bashful Blue. The "Creative Combination" colors are Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, and Cajun Craze. The "Getting Started" colors are Marina Mist, Real Red and Old Olive.
This cute, simple baby card took only a few minutes to make. The image is from the Occasions Mini Level 1 Hostess Set A Slice of Life. This is such a versatile set :) The sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set. Seriously, you just have to own this set ;)
I ran Whisper White card stock through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to create a simple background.
This card is one of my favorites. The last Tuesday of each month I teach a class called Technique Tuesday. Each month we focus on 1 technique. In February we worked with 5 elements that make up the "vintage" style. The cards were full of layers and embellishments... and gorgeous! We used the Bliss stamp set, which is one of the Sale-a-Bration items. The Grosgrain Ribbon and Antique Brad add the perfect touch.
Now, I never would have put these 3 colors together on my own... the Marina Mist and Old Olive, sure. But the Real Red really jazzes it up! Everything is stamped from the Hello Again stamp set. The ric-rac strip of card stock is cut from the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die on my Big Shot. The texture on the bottom of the Red Red card stock is from the Crimper - an often overlooked tool in my drawer. (I think I heard a squeal of delight from it as it bit into the card stock *smile*) There are TWO bits of "bling" on this card... the center of the flower has a dusting of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, and I punched out a Small Heart from Glimmer Paper. Happiness :)
