Do I Love Red?

Well the short answer is yes!

Well sort of~~
However I never wear it, and I don't craft with it, (or not very often anyway!)
I have used it in the occasional Scrapbook page, but I think other than the once a year hubby Valentine's card, I have not used it much at all.

I have enjoyed using my new girl stamps from Kanban, I had a little spend on QVC last week and these came today.
I have decided to do two cards at the same time (clever or what!!)

On the first card I stamped the girl twice, once on white card and the second on the red paper, I then cut out the red dress and hat and layered them over the top. Just like when I was a child and had a cut out dressing up doll. (Oh I used to love them, I would sit for hours with my sister playing doll dress up!!)

I have used some of the same papers for the second card. I have cut round the girl after stamping, she too is copic coloured and matted on a white card cut on the Nesibilities, and put through the bug with swiss dot folder.
For the brilliant "button", go to the fabulous Wiff of Joy tutorial~~it's fab:

These cards will go in the "Red and White" Sweet stamping challenge, Cupcake Craft Challenge, and The Abc challenge, all links found below:




When I look at these two cards, I will try and feel more love towards the colour red~~I think it is working!!
