AmberInk Blog Hop!


Welcome to this stop on the AmberInk Blog Hop!

If you didn't get here from Emily's blog, feel free to go say hi to her and the rest of the crew (or start the blog hop here).

Our challenge: a 7-course meal for two. Huh?

That means: 2 colors (plus a neutral -- and a little pop of something else if desired), and 7 elements or actions or whatevers....

Here's my take:

The colors are pretty obvious, so I'll get right to the "courses"

Two iPapers (Snowflake Lace and Holiday Cheer)
Two punches (label, tag)
One stamp (from American Crafts)
One ribbon-twiney thingie that I made up
One brad (also featuring that Snowflake Lace iPaper)

A grid design keeps it clean and simple, and that's the way I like it (today, anyway).

Hope you enjoyed your stop on the hop. Go Team Orange!

Now hop along and see Sunghee!

Ang, you totally rocked the recipe! I look at your fabulous card and think - why didn't I think of that?! I love the way you attached the tag. Nine cheers for Team Orange! ;D

I love your take on this! The layout is great, the color choices, great, but I think I MUST be part parakeet on this cuz I immediately started zooming and zooming as far as I could go to look at that brad! You put a snowflake in it? To match? SAY WHAT? How do you even think of things like that. It is the ultimate perfect touch.

You write like I think... the "ribbon-twiney thingie" made me smile! So often, I SO over-complicate things... this simple style is one I REALLY like and will have to remember that sometimes less really is more!

Lindsey said...

Your ribbon-twiney-thingie is just one element of greatness on this card! Love it!

Amberbop said...

Oh this is just too smart! The layout is so lovely. I love the negative space and how snow-flaky it looks. Genius. Brilliance. You.
