Colourq Challenge Card with Lovely Romance

Yep, I am back stamping friends! It feels like forever since I have stamped but I have been so busy and my apt is still a fricking mess. I have boxes that I brought here that went in my kitchen cart that got all broke up and unusable and wow was I looking forward to using that. So it is a good thing I live alone for that reason. Boxes all over in my kitchen. I have been so busy  trying to get all the stuff put away and switching my stuff out with Mom's stuff that I brought here from her condo. Storing it for siblings that aren't near. I did manage to take a day off to go picking blueberries and I just used the last fresh ones in my green smoothie. YUMMY! 

So last night I stamped about 6 cards as I needed to make some birthday cards and belated ones at that. GRRRR! I missed a lot of birthdays and I hate that. Anyway I thought I would play along with the ColourQ challenge as I love those colors. So pretty.  I saw this card in the Stampin' UP! Catalog that was really plain but thought I would make a card doing that so here it is or rather here they are as I made two cards You can tell me which one you like better.
They both are using the same colors and the Lovely Romance set along with the Best of Greetings set. I  
also used the Gorgeous Grunge  on the first one and the second one I used the Pretty Print Embossing Folder and the Label Bracket Punch which are going to be available starting tomorrow.  So make sure you check out the other creative cards here:  and maybe even play along. 

Stamps: Lovely Romance, Gorgeous Grunge, Best of Greetings
Paper, Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
Inks: Midnight Muse, Old Olive, Marina Mist, So Saffron
Tools: Big Shot, Pretty Print Texture Embossing Folder, Label Bracket Punch, Basic Rhinestones, 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon

  1. Hey girlfriend! Glad to see you got to do some stamping...especially with the CQC colors! I like them both, but I really like the first one the best! That is a nice set, I love those elements!

  2. Yay Bev is Back!!! Don't worry about the kitchen - I promise not to look. hehe. I like the first card best. A lovely CAS card. (the type I struggle to make!) Vx

  3. Fun cards, Bev, I do believe I like the second one best, I love the embossed background! Thanks for playing with us at the colourQ.
