Tuesday Trigger

I adore Heidi Van Laar's work, and when I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger I knew I wanted to play along. Here's Heidi's card:

So gorgeous. I used her color scheme, her ribbon tretment and stitching and made my own card:

I used the Poppy Chalk Ink by Hero Arts on the large dots from For the Love of Dots, and I love the color and coverage.

I've making tons of stuff lately, so much so that I think I'm losing my mojo a bit. Usually the more I make the more creative I am, but apparently there is a limit to that! 

On another note, if you missed my weekend post, we are having our official design team call! You can read more about it here!

So fun!

This card is lots of fun! In your opinion, how does the Hero Arts chalk compare against the COlorbox Chalk ink? And I've got one more question, is that the pink twill you sell in your store?

Ryann Salamon said...

What a fun card. HVL is awesome and you're card is awesome too! The HA ink looks fabulous. I may need to check it out as I primarily use clear stamps and it looks so clean when stamped. Thanks for sharing :)

Oh, and don't worry about the mojo thing, if you feel it's gone, it will be back :)

Hey....this ROCKS! Love that orange and teal!

Laural-Lee said...

So love those colours too. I love how you put the ribbon through the paper. And the colour of those dots are positively yummy. They remind me of oranges.

I understand about the mojo thing. You get on a roll with ideas and inspiration and then you reach this limit where the brain just can do it any more. I usually spend a couple of nights reading and then return with a fresh look.

Heidi Van Laar said...

Love, love, LOVE this Courtney! Super fun and cute!

Funny, I so know what you mean about losing mojo when you've bee making a lot...I'm in the middle of that right now.

Winter said...

SO pretty! I love the colors and WOW that ink really does cover good! I might need to look into getting that brand! I haven't been able to craft in so long, taxes have been kicking my butt! But I hope to get a little in today! :)

Susan Winslett said...

The ink you chose for your dots is gorgeous! Absolutely love the coverage... and that bright summery color too! Still can't get over your new dots set! Fight through that mojo thing- you've got it!

Dawn said...

Ok..that's it, I have to go get those dots!

Julie said...

I'm really loving the large circle stamps. They look really nice, and since they're so big, you get good coverage. What a cool idea to do with the ribbon!

Angie Tieman said...

Oh my! This is fantabulous! Love those big polka dots!
