ATSM#63 - Colors (Riding Hood Red, Kraft and Marina Mist)

Hello again dear friends and followers - hope you are all doing well!  This week at ATSM the challenge is to use the colors above.  I've been on a Kraft kick lately so was delighted that this is part of the colors we have for you this week to try.  Here's my card to share with you:
I've had this great sentiment stamp for ages and have never used it.  In fact, I can't even remember what idea I had in mind when I purchased it. But...I think its a wonderful sentiment and I thought it would work perfectly for this color challenge.  I quickly inked it up with my Stampin Up! markers (isn't it great how you can use these right on the stamp to achieve two or more colors?).  Those things that kind of look like fat dots are actually hearts from a textured embossing strip (SU) - don't seem to show up too well in this photo.  I think if I make another one like this I'll skip the texture as the sentiment stands nicely all on its own.  A very quick card really - kind of nice when that happens :o). Hope you like it! 
The other lovely ladies over at ATSM have also made some terrific cards to share with you this week. I hope you will get a chance to go visit them and check it out.  What will you make this week with this great color combo?  Can't wait to come visit you and see!
We still have The Paper Nest Dolls as our sponsor for this month.  They have some really darling digital images.  If you are chosen as our Top Winner this week for ATSM#63 you will win a wonderful prize from the sponsor (more details can be found on the challenge blog). 
Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D


  1. To right, Danielle! I love using my markers straight onto stamps. I LOVE this card!!! xx

  2. What a beautiful card, Danielle! The sentiment is really great and I love your background with the "fat dots" lol I would keep them in the next card too! xxx

  3. Quick cards-my kinda of thing! I love it when the idea in your head comes together so quickly. Great sentiment and great use of the colours. The embossing looks good but it would also look good without it. I haven't tried using markers on stamps but must give it a go x

  4. Lovely sentiment and pop of red with the heart! I love using markers onto stamps too. Great use of the colours, Danielle. xx

  5. This card looks great - I do love sentiment only cards, and this sentiment is also a very decorative one!

  6. Hi Danielle. What a great card. Love the sentiment. Have a lovely day! hugs Monika xxx
