Guest Designing at Colour me....! challenge #57

Hi Everyone,

I am sooooo excited to have been invited to guest design at colour me....! this month! Yeahhh!!! This is a fabulous color challenge - you probably all know it and if not - you should check it out and PLAY! For the first week we have this stylish inspiration picture for you. 
Monochromatic navy it is for the first week.



And here is my card:


I first sponged the background with navy ink and then sponged again with an ARTplorations stencil (Hearts All Over) with a slightly brighter shade of blue. Added 2 die cut hearts (Simon Says), a bit of silver string and the sentiment - also by Simon Says stamps. The little stitched flag is from Lil' Inkers.

I wanted to go away from the traditional red/pink Valentine's Day card with this blue one. I think it works!

Now head on over to the colour me....! blog and get inspired by their fabulous DT girls and hopefully you'll have time to play with us this week.

Challenges I play in with this card:
Snippets Playground - use a snippet - the die cut hearts and the banner
Simon Says flickr goup - Love theme
Simon Says - Work it Wednesdays - Love theme

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
