Colour Create Day

It's Colour Create Day!   Di has chosen the most beautiful colours for this challenge - red, white/off-white, chocolate, and pink:

Doesn't that look scrumptious??

Oh - and it is Colour Create's Birthday!  So please head over the Colour Create to read about the fabulous prizes being offered.  We have some awesome sponsors this week - you can click on the boxes below to head over to their stores and check out their product selections.

On to my cards...

For this first card, I decided to try a resist technique that Nichole Heady demo'd on her blog last week.  I can't decide if I like this card or not. 

I stamped the background words in chocolate ink, and then I stamped the flowers and leaves with clear in and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I inked around the flowers and leaves with raspberry and red ink.  

I really like this next card...  Just a fun little valentine.

The background dots are a Stampin Up stamp stamped in pink and heat embossed with some glittery embossing powder.

I had the chipboard brackets in a stash - just added some pink stickles.  And I cut the letter "U" with a sizzix die, and added some little gems.  The felt heart was also in my stash.

I used the Nestabilities Labels One dies and sewed some ribbon ruffle at the bottom.

Please head over to the other Design Team members blogs - they had some beautiful creations to share with you:

Thanks so much for Looking!
