Kristina's got another great color inspiration this week. I decided to use Kiwi Kiss for my green. I thought that this color combo would be great for a card using Wild About You. I'm not otherwise a fan of alligators, but I just love this little guy! I tend to use the alligator way more than any of the other stamps in this set. (I believe there was a bit of eye rolling at my recent class when there was yet another alligator card!)
Materials for this card: Wild About You stamp set; So Saffron, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White card stock; Basic Black, Real Red and Kiwi Kiss Classic ink; Kiwi Kiss Patterns DSP; Real Red 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon; Rich Regals Brads; Crafter's Tool Kit; Stampin' Dimensionals.

This page took me a while to finish. (That may have had something to do with the amount of talking that Sam and I were doing.) I used a sketch from my new Beck Fleck Page Maps book. The materials for this page are: Life's a Breeze, Schoolbook Serif Alphabet, Schoolbook Serif Numbers and Calendar Alphabet and Numbers stamp sets; Tempting Turquoise, Ballet Blue, Green Galore, So Saffron and Whisper White card stock; Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, Ballet Blue and So Saffron Classic Ink; Something Fishy Jumbo Wheel; Jumbo handle; uninked jumbo cartridge; Tempting Turquoise refill.
My second page of the day was so much easier to create. I think that has to do with using a Simply Scrappin' Kit. I used the Summer Home kit that just retired. (Sigh....) I used another one of Becky Fleck's Page maps for this layout. There is actually no stamping on this page! Everything I used is from the Kit. Gotta love that!

Here is my card for Kristina's Color Inspiration. Just like last week, I used a set I had borrowed from my mom and a technique I haven't used in a while. I used the set Fresh Cuts and Poppin' Pastels. It's been so long since I have made a card using the Poppin' Pastels technique, that I had to stop and think about where my pastels were! I used Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie pastels and sponge daubers to dab and blend after I stamped the image with VersaMark.
Materials for this card are: Fresh Cuts stamp set; Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock; Pretty in Pink Classic ink; VersaMark pad; Stampin' Pastels; Pretty in Pink Grosgrain ribbon; Scallop Edge Punch; Stampin' Dimensionals.

I got Becky Fleck's Scrapbook Page Maps for Christmas (thanks sis!) and I hope this will help inspire me. The book also has a set of "flash cards" that come with it, so when I travel or go to a crop, I don't have to take the whole book with me.
You get a benefit from my goal too, since along with all of my other cards and tips, I'll be posting the pages I create! I hope that by going public with my goal, that I'll have even more incentive to stick with it.
Did you make any crafting goals or resolutions for 2009?
