One Card Two Ways

The National Stamping Month special offer, a double-d stamp set called It's Your Day, has been so much fun to play with!  Here I've paired it up with the Clementine paper pack and used a new card sketch from the affordable "Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1" how-to book.
For the butterfly card, I stamped the polka dots with Twilight (thinking of the sky).  The base of the butterfly is stamped in Creme Brulee and the chevrons are Sorbet.  Thanks, Joan, for asking about a little bling for this card and reminding me of how lovely the Bronze glitter glitz gel is.
This card uses the same elements except that I flipped the sketch, stamped the polka dots in Creme Brulee and the bicycle in Saddle, one of Close To My Heart's new colors.  Do you see the generational stamping to give the bike some movement?  To keep this card a bit more on the masculine side, I wrapped the Sorbet ribbon around the B&T strip instead of tying it in a knot or bow.

This week's Color My Heart Color Dare challenge #13 is to use Twilight, Sorbet, and Creme Brulee.  I'm going to get "extra credit" since I used the new Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 how-to guide.

The It's Your Day double-d stamp set is only available until the end of September, so be sure to get yours soon!  It's only $5 with a minimum $35 purchase.  If you don't have a CTMH consultant, feel free to shop HERE.

Love how you switched it up to change the whole tone of the cards!

That sorbet ribbon on the bicycle card reminds me of a road with a white dotted stripe down the middle. I'm sure that's why you chose it, right?

Hi Haley, your cards are very nice. I like your inspiration for the "It's Your Day" set. And I really like the way you did the bicycle. Thanks for joining in at Color My Heart!
