The Outlawz Greetings "Emboss + Red" Challenge

Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps.


This week we are challenging you to do some embossing and use red on your card. This is in honor of American Heart Awareness Month. I would expect that February was chosen for this due to its holiday, Valentine's Day. (Guess that's kind of a no-brainer, huh? No wonder I could figure it out.) I actually didn't want to make another Valentine, since I had made several already. So I chose a fun little image, Bugaboo Brats Isabella Stroller to use on my card. And I added a non-Valentine sentiment by Create with TLC. I printed both the image and the sentiment on Make It Colour Blending Card.

The image was colored, shockingly, with my Copics: C0, C1, R02, R05, R08, R20, E000, E00, E11, E21, E33, E35, BG32, BG34, BG70, G00, Y21, YR23. I chose colors that would go with my DP from My Mind's Eye Six by Six Honey Cake collection and Basic Grey Konnichiwa collection. I paired this paper with DCWV and Stampin' Up CS. 

Then I finished my card by using a Sizzix SU Textured Impressions Chevron embossing folder on a piece of CS, and by adding several die cuts made with the following dies: Spellbinders Labels 3 and Decorative Labels 1, SCACD Ornate Hinge and Classic Corner, and Memory Box Baby Carriage.

I am a wee bit behind in my DT assignments. I have a card due today for publication tomorrow that I have not yet finished. So I am not going to take time to post vacation photos on this posting either. However, I do expect to do so tonight, when I write up my blog for tomorrow. Which, of course, will be written as if I wrote it tomorrow, but it will have been written yesterday, which is actually today. Got that? Good, because I think I made myself dizzy typing it out. 

Go forth, fellow bloggers and card-makers, and create something wonderful for us to see this week! And be sure to check out the fabulous cards created by my teammates! I'll see you again tomorrow, when I hope to get caught up on my blog commenting.

  12. Fabulous card. Cute image that you colored beautifully. Your "fussy cutting" is awesome too.

    I love how you used the SCACD dies. I had no idea that there was a stroller die out there. Sheesh. There's almost a die for everything these days! So many dies, so little ca$h. :D
