Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop! For this hop we will be featuring the letter R. This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their R element will be featured in their post. If you came from Scrappy Therapy then you're on the right track!
R is for RED ... in this case specifically RUBY, which is a Close To My Heart color.
Once again I put my crazy haphazard method of creating in place. It seems to me that red goes with EVERY other color. A pop of red ALWAYS works. OK ... I might be a little too positive about that, but I love red. In order to prove my theory I took out a full package of the Ruby Mini Medleys from Close To My Heart. My goal was to empty the package! I can always buy another one. I nearly did it BUT those mini medley packs are full of more things than you think!!! Here are the cards I made. Did any of these color combos surprise you?
NOTE ... my haphazard method it not really a method. It's truly haphazard. I take scraps of this and pieces of that and stamp sets that are within my reach. A flurry of activity follows and before you know it a card is made. I don't follow a sketch or design. It's kind of like how first graders create, uninhibited. The results always vary. I don't always love all the results but I love the method. NO RULES!
|Red and Sorbet|
Sorbet is a dark peachy CTMH color. I don't prefer this color, but here's the proof that with a pop of red even Sorbet looks good! The flower is from the Mini Medley pack.
|EVERY kind of Brown goes with Red.|
I think is my favorite card from the process. It all happened so fast AND it turned out!! You can't really see the sparkly Ruby buttons here, but they're truly wonderful. I have leftovers but I'm not sad about it.
Thanks for looking. Your next stop along the way is Lisa's Stamping and Scrapping.
