I whipped up some chicken soup in the crockpot this morning and then did some stamping. Stamping turned out all right - soup did not :o( Don't know if I didn't cook it long enough or didn't have it on high enough but the carrots and potatoes weren't done yet - so we had to go to plan B and I'll put it back on tomorrow - surely it will be done by tomorrow night!
Anyway here are a few of the things I created today. Thanks to Melissa I finally figured out the copyright thing that I have to put on my cards for SU - thanks Melissa :o)
All of them are valentines cards for my Valentines stamp camp this Friday. I got tired of the same colors all the time so I was trying to use some more non traditional Valentine colors - this card is kraft cardstock with red and black.
This was for a swap I was in - you had to use only the Petals and Paisley set. I used Blush Blossom for the card base which is a color I don't use very often. The other pink is Cameo Coral. I am using a simplified version of this for the 50 thank you cards I am making for the school library volunteers.
Okay this one I really impressed myself on :o) I have had this hostess set forever and never figured out how to use it and so was so happy that this worked out so well! On top of that I used the wide ribbon which is always a challenge for me. Whoo hoo - it still impresses me!!!
This I copied from the SU Stamping Success magazine that we get as demonstrators. It is mustard, olive, cocoa, and rose - don't know if I would ever have thought to put these colors together myself but it's okay.... not great but okay and definitely in my these of non-traditional colors!
If you have any ideas for non traditonal valentine color combinations I would love to hear them - just click on the comments and let me know.
