Color Inspiration #48 and a "Hi" card

This is the card I came up with for this week's Color Inspiration challenge over at Kristina's blog. I just received an order from Stampin' Up with the new Stampin' Up Big Bold Cupcakes sizzlit 4-pack dies and the Sweet Little Sentiments stamp set. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to try out my new stuff!
This card was created last night. I found this stack of paper by Black Market Paper Society at my LSS. I free hand cut the flower out of one of the sheets of paper. The 'hi' is shimmery chipboard from Scrapworks.

Color Inspiration #44

Sorry I skipped last weeks Color Inspiration challenge. I didn't have one of the colors she listed and I know you don't have to use them all but I had a very hard time with the combination as a whole. But never fear, I'm back for this weeks challenge! This challenge is using my favorite color combinations:

And here is my take:

I really need a new camera or something...I had a hard time getting a decent picture of this card. Anywho, ENJOY!

Color Inspiration #41

I have seemed to of lost my creativeness lately. I figured the best way to spark it again, is to participate in various challenges. I am a frequent visitor to Kristina Warner's blog and thought I'd start with her Color Inspiration challenges. This week's challenge is this:

Kristina mentioned about possible Valentine's Day cards out of these color combinations. For those that know me, Valentine's Day is my least favorite holiday. I was in need of 2 cards so I used this as my opportunity. Here is what I came up with:

For this card, I used Riding Hood Red SU cardstock as my base, Basic Gray SU cardstock embossed with Diving Swirls folder in my Cuttlebug, Studio G stamp on Whisper White SU cardstock, and Basic Black SU 1/4" ribbon.

For this card I used Basic Gray SU cardstock as my base, Riding Hood Red SU cardstock stamped with a Studio G clear stamp using a Versamark ink pad, Basic Black SU 1/4" ribbon. I didn't use Whisper White on the front of this card but there is Whisper White on the inside.
