Taken with Taupe

Hi there blog friends!!  Sometimes when you sit down, a piece of inspiration comes to you that eventually you can carry through your card.  I sure wish that happened more often, because once I can hone in on a piece of inspiration, the rest of the card comes together quickly.  Today I knew that I wanted to work with tone on tone – it’s always a classic look and so pristine that it lends itself very well to formal cards.  I’m sure it would work with other colors but taupe headed to the top of my list and I found three shades that I thought worked together well.

While playing around I liked the result of arranging the border from Spellbinders™ Damask Accents into a frame – it makes for a big card (5 1/2″ x 7″), but that seemed to be the perfect size to show off Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals.  Next, I was on the hunt for a big stamp to fill that large oval and landed on a newly released stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs called the Sea.  When cutting Floral Ovals, I also cut out an oval inside using Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals LG #5 to create a frame.  I backed the frame with a slightly larger oval from Spellbinders™ Grand Ovals #1.  

I added a bow and a pearl pin with filigree then finished off by laying small pearls around the frame (sounds tedious but only took about three minutes).  Oh how I love taupe :-)

I really like the contrast of the dark damask accents against the lighter background. And the larger size card is my favorite to make. I always feel so confined with an A2 sized card.ReplyCancel

    These beautiful creations of yours make it really difficult not to purchase the new Spellbinder Dies, esp. the floral frames. Without really knowing it until I saw these dies, I have been waiting for ornate dies purposely designed as frames. They are really beautiful. Pass this info along to Spellbinders! Create more – for most of the ornate dies are for women because most cards are made for women and by women. We like to get in the mail the foo foo, lacey, ornate, “ribbony”, pearly, feminine, fancy cards! LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisFebruary 7, 2012 - 12:34 pm

    Becca, your cards are such a treat for the eyes. I can’t tell you how much product I’ve bought because I saw it/them on your gorgeous site. There’s no way I can duplicate your amazing work.

    I have been coming to your site for a couple years now but have never commented. I should have. Your cards are amazing. Please keep on doing what you do so beautifully.

    On another note, I lost my husband 9 years ago this March. I was so sorry to read about your dear husband. It’s a hard journey to “okay,” let alone “good.” Little things can practically knock you to your knees with unexpected grief. You have my deepest sympathy.ReplyCancel
