And now for something completely different...


This week's Dynamic Duos colour combo is a soft and pretty one...

As the title of my post indicated, I went in a direction very unusual for me... Clean and Simple! I've been inspired by my fellow DT member Deanna who makes the most amazing CAS cards with lots of white space, and so I decided to have a go using these colours...

And I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out, considering when I make CAS cards I always feel like I need to add more! The Blooming with Kindness stamp set made this really quick to make and I just added a couple of butterflies made with the Bloomin' Marvelous (SAB) butterfly stamp and bitty butterfly punch as well as the Elegant Butterfly punch using Pink Pirouette cardstock. I couldn't resist adding a few rhinestones to the centres of the butterflies! The embossed panel is the striped EF with a couple of scored lines above it - very quick to do!

And just because I'm in a 'different' mood I thought I'd share a scrapbook page with you (gasp!) as it's got Pool Party and Pink Pirouette as its main colours (with Lucky Limeade as well, so not my official DD project!). Now keep in mind I'm not a scrapbooker (unlike the amazing Bobbie!) so it's not my forte, but this is what I created for a class last year...

Yep, that's me on my wedding day, eleven and a half years ago (has it really been that long?!). I used a SU Simply Scrapping kit from last year's catty, and would heartily recommend the SS kits for scrapbooking - they make it a lot easier (for me at least!).

That's all from me - make sure you check out the lovely projects by the rest of the DT this week.

Thanks for stopping by...

  2. You really hit it out of the park with this one, Amy! A really lovely CAS card this week, and a beautiful layout, too!

  3. Super job with the CAS card...I know how you feel as I have a hard time with CAS too! My motto is more is more, right? I REALLY enjoyed seeing the wedding pictures of you, too. The center one reminds me of a bride from the 1900's....gorgeous!

  4. Oh how I love the color you stamped that flower in, wonderful with the pink butterflies.

  5. Amy, I thought your card was gorgeous...and then I saw your scrapbook page. Thud! That is my chin hitting the desk! WOW! Not only is that page awesome but you are an absolutely stunning bride. :)
