CR84FN19 ....

... we have some wonderful colours for you this week at CR84FN.  Beautiful shades of aqua, blue and grey - the inspiration photos are stunning!!  The photos are from Crate & Barrel.




Lisa celebrates her birthday this week, and so my card has been made especially for her.   HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Lisa, have a good one!  Hopefully, it will reach Lisa in time, but it went off a bit late as I've had a few family issues this last week.



I love the colours we have for you this week.  I started off with a silver (grey) A5 card for the base.  I sprayed a piece of plain white card with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in silver and over that I stamped in two shades of aqua, this gorgeous blanket background stamp which is from one of Claire's new sets over at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I used my Labels 14 nesties to cut out two shapes - one in a textured silver grey card for the background, and one from a piece of white card which had also been sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist - this time in Aqua Lagoon!.  On the smaller piece I added a simple birthday greeting and some lovely flourishes.  Both were stamped in Danube Blue and Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.  I decided to make some lovely blue roses with my Roses in Bloom set from Waltzing mouse; I used the both the large and small rose, plus a couple of rose buds. They were all coloured with Promarkers.  I added a lovely white satin ribbon behind the flowers and labels.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Rose in Bloom, Way out West, Holiday Labels No 14; Kanban set from QVC
Inks:  Versamark; Memento - Tuxedo Black, Danube Blue; Kaleidacolour - Blue Breeze
Spellbinders:  Labels 14 (S4-290) dies #4 and #5
Promarkers:  Midnight Blue, China Blue, Blue Pearl, Meadow Green, Apple, Mandarin, Soft Peach
Accessories:  Card, ribbon, embossing power and paper from stash

For more inspiration using these wonderful colours do check out the Design team's blogs - they have some wonderful cards to share with you.


Our Guest Designer - Deb Hickman - also has some wonderful inspiration for you.  I look forward to seeing your cards.

That's all from me for today.  I hope to have a card to share with you tomorrow - I have a few challenges that I need to catch up with!!

You're right - the inspiration photo is amazing and so is your card! I love all those aqua and silver colours and your flashes of green really bring them out.

Take care Deborah. Vx

The aqua blanket background is so effective & I agree the colours are extremely pretty. Love the blue roses & the way the green leaves really make the whole "zing".
You remain much in my thoughts.
Much love
