Welcome to the March edition of the NC Demos Blog Hop! We are so glad you are here! It has been a rough few weeks for everyone, so I hope that our hop will inspire you and perhaps lift your spirits if you need it!
Since it is almost time to say goodbye to the 2018-2020 In Colors my fellow demos and I are sharing our In Color Monochromatic Masterpieces using our favorite retiring In Color. I know you have already seen something fantastic if you stopped by Frances Wagner’s’ post.
So, I have to say the 2018-2020 In Colors are some of my all time favorites. You could tell this if you saw that I am almost out of all of the cardstock and it’s just March! The colors are all so bright and cheerful! So, it was hard to choose my favorite, but in the end reds and pinks are my favorite colors, so naturally I had to go with Lovely Lipstick! I am going to be SO sad to see it retire!
I decided that I would go super simple with this card and as I am on a kick to use EVERY stamp I own at least once this year I got out the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp that I won during a Prize Patrol at OnStage in November. Yes, this beauty has been sitting on the shelf waiting since November, but this is definitely not the last time I will be using it!
This would be a great card layout to use with any of your DSP or stamped images. It is so quick and easy to cut! Here are the measurements:
- Lovely Lipstick 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4 then a second piece 4 x 5 1/4
- Whisper White 4 x 3
- Scraps of Lovely Lipstick, Vellum & Whisper White
As usual, I cut all my cardstock first. Next, I die cut all my pieces using the Painted Labels Dies and embossed the Lovely Lipstick layer with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I then stamped with the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp and the greeting from Peaceful Moments stamp set using the Stamparatus. This made this card SO easy! I could do a bunch of them super quick! Hmmmm, might have to make this a future Cute Cards Quick….=-) Sorry, I digress.
I love the new Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, but thought I needed a bit more color, so I just pressed the ribbon onto my Lipstick ink pad and set it aside to dry.
After my ribbon was dry I assembled my card. I used the Multipurpose Glue to adhere the two Lovely Lipstick pieces, Next, I used Dimesionals for the Breathtaking Bouquet piece. Then I used Tear & Tape to attach the ribbon, Vellum and Lovely Lipstick die cut circle. Finally, I used Dimensionals to attach my greeting.

Love that card maybe casing it
Case away, Tina! Just share a pic of your creation with me!
Ok, I’ve been holding off on ordering that background stamp and it seems like someone is nudging me to get it since I’ve seen it pop up in several cards the last few days! It definitely is a beautiful image, and it looks great in Lovely Lipstick.
Tracie, pretty card. Thanks for sharing.
I love the floral background!
Thank you, Frances!
Very pretty card! It’s so bright and cheery. I love the background stamp you used. I hadn’t every really noticed it before, but I’ll be sure to check it out now.
Thank you, Sue! I think it is a great stamp with lots of potential! I have a couple of other ideas I want to try with it.
Oh, Tracy! You knocked it out if the park with this one. I Iove it.
Thank you, Amy!
Lovely card! I love the little element under the sentiment – it’s so subtle yet adds so much!
Thank you, Ariel! That’s my favorite part of the card!
Love that cheery card! I really like the Lovely Lipstick. Great job, Tracie!
Thank you, Sharon!
Tracie – I really love all the layers and textures in your card. They work together incredibly well! You’ve inspired me to use Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set. One of my favorite touches on your card is the colored crinkled seam binding ribbon – very pretty! Stay inky and sane in our current environment!
Thank you, Laurie! Stay safe and creative!
Great card again! I love Lovely Lipstick. I really love coloring my crinkled seam binding any color I want! Everything works together so well!
Thank you, Jo Anne!
What a great Lovely Lipstick card. The elements go together nicely. Using every stamp set is always such a tough challenge, I try to adhere to that rule, but never seem to be able to achieve it. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you, Tracy!
Very stunning….thank you…:)
