Diva Coffee Break Designs #158


Today's DCBD Challenge is a color challenge, and a very pretty one at that:


I was able to use some of my new goodies from the upcoming SU mini catalog, as my favorite "man in brown" pulled in JUST before I sat down to make my card!  I am IN LOVE with the new clear-mount stamps.  Just heaven to hold that whole entire stamp set in a nice slim case!!!  So here ya go:


I have used the Fall to Layout #72 for this clean & simple-style card:


and if you love designer papers, baby, this is the sketch for you!  I realized I had no Old Olive DP, so I pulled out a piece of  Bella Bleu in the Sahara Sand shade, along with my sponge brayer and my OO pad, and I just brayered some color right over top of that Bella Bleu!  Tada!  Old Olive designer paper!  The whole shebang is mounted on a Whisper White mat, then adhered to a card of textured Old Olive.  The sentiment from Always is stamped in Chocolate Chip on a narrow strip of Whisper White which I fed through the Word Window punch and just punched the ends.  A new Chocolate Chip Epoxy brad adds a sweet little embellishment.  And oh, the new stamps!!!  The hearts are from "I {Heart} Hearts!! So cute!  Stamped in the same colors as the DP, cut out and mounted on the Rose Red Stitched Ribbon.

So be sure to check out the DCBD blog to see what the other designers have come up with!  We'd love to have you play along---you can post your card to your own blog or online gallery, then link it back to Mr Linky there at the Diva blog!  Have fun!

Beautiful card! Love how you transformed the Bella Bleu DSP! I'm going to have to try that out :-) Where would I find the Fall-to-Layouts??
