Feeling Blue...

Well, at least inspired by the Impression Obsession blue challenge. The nice thing about this card is that it really takes no time at all to make. I used three stamps and two colors of ink. I didn't do any coloring, which really cuts down on card making time. Here are step by step pictures of the card:

Step 1- start with a medium blue notecard:

Step 2- Stamp the Denim Cover a Card (CC051) onto the blue card:

Step 3- stamp Newsprint Cover a Card (CC068) on top of Denim background:

Finally, I stamped the Ocracoke Lighthouse (F1814) on blue paper with the same blue Versafine ink. The Versafine pads really do pick up small details on stamps!

Are you feeling the blues? Check out the blue themed cards by Daniela, Deborah, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, Kathy, and Shirley created.

BRILLIANT card . . .perfect for the male of the species (which are always harder to make for!). I love the little tutorial and . . . WOW . . . that lighthouse stamp might have to go on my shopping list!
Visiting you from Watermelon Sugar's blog.
Have a good day.

I really like how you used two cover-a-card background stamps Laura...what a lovely card.

Wow, what a wonderful card! I really loved the idea with the two cover-a-card stamps & a really great demonstration too. 8-)

Just saw this card tonight at the make and take at Angela's, it looks really pretty in person - the picture just does not capture the blues and the background stamping that well. Wonderful card, love it when you show the 'step by step'.

This is so pretty. I forgot about that denim background stamp. It is perfect with the newsprint! Great idea.

Pretty and fun all in one card -- I love how you mixed and matched the cover-a-card backgrounds. I have got to do that more often -- just too fun!
