Aqua and Orange

I love orange. Actually my fingernails are orange right now. (I like to let my kids pick, last week it was yellow.) And I have a well documented love of aqua of course.
I had to mix them up with lots and lots of white when I used my new Gina K Designs stamps. First on this little square card.
Then on this regular sized card with a punch button flower and a hand drawn stem.

And finally on this oversized 8.5"x5.5" card. (This is a size Roniece needs a lot for cards that are from a group of people who all want to sign. I find this size to be VERY difficult so I was working on a new sketch of the size to help us design those for her.

Special cards need special envelopes.

I want to talk about the envelopes more. I told you two weeks ago I found all that pattern paper at Tuesday Morning. It was packs of 25 sheets of American Crafts double sided paper. For $1.99 each pack. But what will I do with 25 of any paper. Well first stop was to split them with Roniece. But still... a LOT of paper. So I made envelopes. I LOVE it. Making envelopes from double sided paper ROCKS. Auto-lined baby!
See look at some I did last week:

How much fun would these be to get in your mail? TOO FUN.
Don't forget my Noteworthy Blog Candy if you are intersted.

PoOp! I really wish you hadn't shown that heart set... I simply must have it. I've never tried GinaK paper but since I'm running so low on white anyhow...might as well give it a try, huh? Love the orange and teal together. Know what color I SITLL mourn over? Cool Carribean!
