Bright and Bling for a Wednesday!

Boy, oh boy! I think the time change is catching up with me today! It could be a couple late nights of getting stamp class stuff together too though! So, today we made three "bright" and "bling" cards.

These colors are not my usual go-to kinda colors. I do like bright, but I'll usually pair with it something subtle or neutral to mellow things out. I wanted to use the Ice Cream Parlor Papers (from Sale-a-bration), because I wanted to inspire the kids to want to use them too! They each got a package of the papers and accents to use on some other projects for the next couple days. So even though the colors were tough for me, I hope they'll have fun with them!

Anyway, for this top card, I pulled the Pacific Point and Old Olive from the busy background print - and kept it there!! I do like how the Poinsettia flower folder kinda went with the background pattern.

Then this little gem took me a while! All those colored dots kept me jumping! But again I tried to pull out two colors (and a lighter shade of one!) - and stick to it! I really like this saying, Wish Big, that comes from the Word Play set.

And finally this one I used the Sale-a-bration catalog for inspiration. And - once again - I stuck to two colors again. Hmmm, maybe there's something to that?!

Well, off to create and prepare for a couple more days of high school craftin'! Lovin' it!!

Thanks for stopping by,
