Dynamic Duos #6

I have been intrigued by the new challenge blog, Dynamic Duos, and thought I would give it a try.  Not to mention, any excuse to use Regal Rose (one of my favorite colors!)

Does the background look familiar?  It is the same stamp I used in my Color Throwdown card here.

  • I flipped the Ex Libris stamp on its side for a different look. 
  • I love vellum!  I wanted to use the image from the set  Blooming with Kindness, but did not want to cut it out, so I stamped it on vellum and wrapped that around the card background.
  • The sentiment was a bit more of a challenge, since I had already added the ribbon.   I used the word Inspire from the set Loving Thoughts and distressed it just a bit.

  • Inside, I trimmed part of the ExLibris image and used it as a border.
  • I also stamped the flower image again;  with the new ink pads, to get a watercolor effect you have to stamp off the image a few time; in this case, I stamped it twice on scrap before I added the watermark to the inside.
Well today has been fun creating!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So delightful, Lauri! Love the vellum.

    You certainly have been creative today! I have been meaning to go into my craft room and make a card but haven't the energy to do so yet. We spent a few hours this morning cleaning out the gutters and bemoaning the cottonwood tree seeds that germinated in the gutter (first time ever! I think it's the crazy winter/spring we had). The decision has been made - the tree MUST come down before fall. :-)

  2. This is gorgeous! Wonderful use of the stamp and I love the vellum overlay! So glad to see you at Dynamic Duos!

  3. Wow, this is gorgeous...I don't think I've ever seen that Ex Libris stamp used....I must have passed right over it in the catalog! Love the vellum overlay and I cannot remember when I used Regal Rose last!! I think I must remedy that!

  4. This is just beautiful. Glad you joined us at Dynamic Duos this week.

  5. I love your design, just beautiful. Thanks' for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week.

  6. This is so beautiful. The image stamped on vellum and layered over the design is such a great look.

  7. Wow, Lauri! This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the softness from stamping the floral image on vellum. I always forget to use vellum but you have completely inspired me, yet again. Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week! Have a great day! :)

  8. Oh, so pretty! I love that you decorated the inside too! Thanks so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week! :)

  9. Very elegant card Lauri, the velum is pretty! Thank you for playing along at Dynamic Duos!
