I Dream of Stamping - 2010 Winter Card Olympics Begin!

The 2010 Winter Olympics are well under way in Vancouver!

The 2010 Winter Card Olympics has officially started over at I Dream of Stamping! Our first challenge to you is a color challenge! Create a card using the colors of your favorite country's flag, or, using the colors from the Olympic Logo (Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow and Basic Black). You have until 5pm on February 28th to post your link, then we'll select a winner and post their card here on March 1st. Be sure to hop over to I Dream of Stamping to find out all of the fine details of the challenge. There is a prize over there to be won! I will be adding a goodie to the prize as well!

I am Japanese. I was born and raised here in the US but I am proud to be Japanese American! The country I have chosen to support (beside U.S.A) is Japan!

It's Valentine's Day and Kevin sent me a bouquet of 18 long stem RED roses!!!

Here is my card using the Red and White from Japan's flag as my color inspiration and the gorgeous roses as my image inspiration!


I Dream of Stamping - Winter Olympics Inspiration Challenge
Simon Says - LOVE (the rose represents LOVE from my hubby)
Creative Belli - Ribbons

This rose is from the stamp set, A Rose is A Rose by SU. I stamped it several times on watercolor paper, spritzing the stamps as I went along. Then I cut each one apart and layered them with dimensionals. I am in LOVE with Flower Soft! Memories Live On carries them now and I have bought at least 10+ jars of this stuff in every color imaginable... will be using them to teach the next class. Anyways, I have Strawberry Flower Soft in extra fine. Isn't it beautiful?!

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Let the games begin!
