Poinsetta Trio

 So I just can't stop making cards with this stamp!  It is totally one of my favs and I don't bother putting it away 'cause I know I'm just going to dig it out again.  I made this and this and have a couple others I hope to post soon.  My plan with these cards was to take this flower stamp, memento rich cocoa ink, the snowflake stamp, tim holtz green ink, one sheet of pattern paper, 3 kinds of ribbon, 3 kinds of card bases, and 1 scrap of bo bunny paper, mix them together and see what happens.
Initially I wanted to go traditional with my color choices since my last few (here and here) were non-traditional colors.  In looking at this first card I can say that it is green and red, but more lime than evergreen.  I love it anyway.  :)
I got closer to traditional with this one and love it too. :)  Then I realized I had used my whole scrap of bo bunny red paper!  What to do?!?  I was trying to be good and use my scraps!
Well I found another red scrap.  It's bo bunny but, full disclosure time, it is a darker red.  Will you all forgive me?  :)  I adore how all of them are the same and different all at once!  It's cool how just a couple changes can create a whole new feel.
I had fun even decorating the envies!  I went simple and made all three pretty much the same.  Good time spent procrastinating in my studio.  It's Friday.  Give yourself some me time.  :)  Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the latest SSDS challenge!
