Hot, hot, hot!

A quickie tonight with two cards (that makes that every day this week, a record for me!).  I saw that Die Cut Dreams has a challenge to use orange and hot pink - as you know, my two favourite colours!!!  So I knocked up this 10cm x 10cm card for it...



I don't know what I'll use it for yet so I haven't added any sentiments.  I also used a Hero Arts background with clear pigment ink and white embossing powder to create that background.  Making this card really got my creative juices going so I then made this card for Flutter by Wednesday with an "anything goes" theme...



Fab sentiments, huh?  These are from a Ladybug Crafts Ink set - I've got loads of fairy stamps so they are going to be so handy!  And if you are looking for a bargain, Kerry is selling some sets (to make way for new stamps!!) on QVC Create & Craft [oops, sorry for original mistake in the post and thx to Lisa for noticing!].  They are fantastic value - I got the Xmas set for myself!  Anyway, if you want a bargain, you can find them on this page here.

See you tomorrow for another Totally Gorjuss challenge!

You combine orange and pink perfectly. The first card is such an energy booster. And on the second the pink & grey colour combination is a classic! I love the pink dp, the fun borders and the sweet image. Stunning cards Mary!
