Coloring Down the Lines-Rose Red

It's another Wednesday blog hop, and this week you've come straight from Robbie's site at  She's a very busy woman, and she still cranks out so many beautiful cards!  Today's is no exception.  I don't know how she does it...Our colors this week are Rose Red with Soft Suede and Marina Mist OR Rose Red with Wisteria Wonder and Garden Green.  And the side kick is to use a Christmas Theme.  I thought these were odd colors for Christmas, and I struggled with an idea.  But this poinsettia is so versatile, it looks good in any color, so I went with that.  I just embossed everything in white, and fussy cut the flower and colored it in with my colors.  Very simple.  Let's see what Helen made for us today.   I always love what she makes, I can't wait to see.  Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and come back next week.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Coloring down the lines-Perfect Plum

Welcome to our blog hop this Fall week from Amanda's blog at  Her card is wonderful, wish I had thought of that!  Our colors this week were perfect plum with marina mist and rose red OR perfect plum with early espresso and whisper white.  I chose the first one, and our twist was to use a "NEW TO YOU" technique.  I did the magic tape technique.  I've seen it done a hundred times, but never actually tried it.  I found it messy and I'm really not that good at it, but here it is.  I would use pale colors if I do it again, such as the new in-colors.  Anyway, I just embossed my stamp set "summer delights" on it in black, and card done.  Lets' go see what Helen made, I know it will inspire us to try her technique.  Come back next week to see what's up!  Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  Carol Smith

Coloring Down the lines-Island Indigo

Hello and Happy Wednesday, ladies!  Just coming from Amanda's  blog at, you already saw her beautiful leaf card and know our color scheme.  She did an awesome job!  We used Island Indigo with Rose Red and Garden green, OR island indigo with Pool party and calypso coral (which I used since I love those 2 blues together)!   AND we added a feature to our colors by using a leaf on our cards.   I used the leaf from Best of Autumn, and the fancy print emboss folder with the chalktalk die.  Kept it simple, so the colors popped.  Hope you like it.  Let's feast our eyes on what Helen made, I saw it and love it, as usual.  What a sweet and talented person she is...  lets' go-  Tune in next week to see our next twist.  Thanks for visiting, Carol Smith
