A Couple of New Color Combos for Valentines

I mentioned in my last post that I was working on putting together a few more Valentines cards using some non-traditional color combos. I had so much fun making these cards. The interesting thing is that the idea for both of these cards danced around in my head for a few days before I actually made them. I just love that part of the creative process. Even when I laid down to sleep at night I would envision how the cards might turn out, the colors I would use and the elements I would include. When an idea comes to me in this way, mulling it over and working it out for a few days, I always enjoy the process of actually creating the card so much more than when I just sit down at my workspace and try to throw something together on a whim. Of course, when I set about creating these particular cards they still took on a life of their own and became something just a little bit different than I had envisioned. But that's OK too, because when it comes to card making, at least for me, it's all about the process of discovery.
I hope you enjoy,

Truly beautiful cards...both of these! Thank you for sharing them and for your sweet comment on my blog.

Fabulous color combinations. I feel like I sometimes have more fun planning the project rather than the actual execution of the project. Not alone in that!

What lovely cards you make. I love the pink tag one especially, it looks so cute with the felt flowers.

It is great that you are selling your cards, they are so beautiful. I forgot to ask you last friday if you can make a card for one of my friends birthday's.This is the one who is really nice with Cami, and me. She likes the colors dark blue and purple and she reads a lot of books, just to give you and idea. The cake that I am going to make for her has that theme. We will talk soon. Take care
