{PURE} Color Combo #1

Saturday, April 5, 2014

The first color combination that I really love is
I used them to create a card {OK, two} for my parent's anniversary.
Next week they will be celebrating 44 years!
These colors are so vibrant, perfect for spring.
One quality of these Wplus9 dye inks that I really like is that they stamp much more opaque than other dye inks that I have.  I love that you get nice, solid, even coverage.
Bonus: The ink stays wet on the paper just long enough that you can heat emboss it too!

I used Folk Art Florals to create a vine-like pattern.
I'm not sure which card I will give them.
Which do you think?

I'll be back with another color combination soon.
Have a great day!

  4. Always love the stamped patterns you create Kara. The banner on the first card is great, but I love the luxurious ribbon on the second one making it my favorite.

  5. These are both fabulous. I think you can use both--give one to your mom and one to your dad. A great way to use your beautiful cards.

  6. They're both pretty, can't decide!! Maybe you could give the one with the bow to your mom and the other to your dad LOL!! Happy Anniversary wishes for them!
