Soft and Subtle with Dynamic Duos

This week from Dynamic Duos, we have another soft and subtle "Subtly Yours" Challenge, Pistachio Pudding and Blushing Bride.  Here's the challenge #89:

While those two colours are lovely together, it took me a bit of time to choose the right neutral to show them off to their best advantage.  I came up with Basic Gray and here's how all three looked together:

  • All the images are from Everything Eleanor, which I think is going to be one of my all time favourite stamp sets!  I did all the stamping in either Basic Gray or Blushing Bride.
  • All the images were hand cut because there are no framelits to go with this set. (*Hint! Hint! Stampin' Up!)  They were then shaped with the bone folder for some dimension and adhered with Glue Dots or Dimensionals.  
  • The Pistachio Pudding Designer Series Paper is from the 2013/15 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The flourish from the same stamp set, Everything Eleanor, and the sentiment from Express Yourself were stamped right on the DSP with Basic Gray ink.
  • A few Pearl Basic Jewels and its a wrap!

I've been working hard for some time now to bring you a blog post daily, but I'm finding it difficult, in the process, to complete other tasks that I feel are important to my business.  I would like to be able to make more video tutorials and more comprehensive photo tutorials available to you for one thing, and to have time to send out more cards to customers and friends and family.  In order to be able to make this happen, I have decided to cut back on the number of posts I write per week.  You can count on a new post Monday to Friday, but I will not be posting on the weekend.  I hope you will understand and will enjoy having some more video tutorials and other tips and ideas added to my daily posts.  I will continue to provide you with up-to-date information from Stampin' Up! if there are major announcements on the weekends, but that happens rarely now that Tuesdays are major announcement days.  Thanks for being such supportive readers!
