Seize the Birthday #232 - Dichromatic


This is a great challenge topping that Ashwini charged us with these next two weeks.  At first, I was puzzled as I didn't know what Dichromatic was.  Did you? 
Now I know that it is simply using two colors. 


            
      Of course, if you are not a toppings kind of person, just make it is a Birthday card. 

My two colors are Speckled Egg and Peeled Paint from Distressed oxide ink.  
I think I was thinking of Bette Manning! 


I used the Altenew Embossing folder called Seasonal Blooms and then the matching Stencils to color it. So easy to do. The script is from Yanna Spellbinder hot foil dies.

     I see that I over foiled in one spot.

Double D - Shades of Pink





Supplies:
Honey Bee Coneflower  and Buzz Words Die
Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles
GKD - paper and ink 


I learned some new tricks when taking pictures with my iPhone.  
This is called Stage light with the portrait option. What do you think?
I used to lug my camera to take pictures of my cards for my blog and it was quite cumbersome.  
Now I just use my phone.

Double D - Hearts

It is time for another fun Challenge at Double D and Diane is our host.  She has prepared this lovely board for your inspiration. I was inspired by the gingham in many of the squares and I did a card inspired by Jennifer McGuire. She called it a Pop-out window card and you can find it here. 


Here is the card that I made. 

                                                       When you open it, it looks like this. 

Give it a try, as it was fun to make and I did it on my first try. 
Supplies used on this card are: 
Wrapped stitched Circle Frame by Memory Box ( a gift from DD)
MFT Buffalo Plaid background stamp
Simon Says Deco Heart Die 
Inside
Stitched Heart Die Namics
Simon Says Heart Smile die
Memory Box Banner Parade
Tiny dots and Hearts background stamp

Wow, That was a lot! Nothing like using your supplies! 

Ok, Here is the prize for a random winner of this challenge.
