It’s Thursday, and time to play with the Pals at Pals Paper Arts! This week is a color challenge: Real Red, Soft Sky, Whisper White. At first, I was at a loss with what I would do with this color combination. I pulled out my cardstock, and what few pieces of Designer Paper I could find which contained these colors and hoped I would become inspired. The more I played with this combination, the more I embraced it and the challenge. I ended up using two patterns that, strangely enough, reminded me of the oilcloth table coverings that my grandmother used. I hope you enjoy today’s card. Its quick and easy layout can be used whenever you have a “card emergency”.
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips: Cute and Colorful
This finished card measures 4-1/4′ wide by 5-1/2″ long.
- Selectively ink! Real Red and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers were used to selectively ink the sentiment, “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful” from Perfect Pennants. Don’t you just love this sentiment? It is so true!
- B is for Banner! With the new Banners Framelits, banners are just a crank of the Big Shot away!
- Packs a punch! Don’t you just love it when a set comes with a punch! The Petite Petals set does just that. Inked in Real Red, a trio of these cuties with Candy Dot centers were the perfect little accents.
This cold, winter weather is making me long for the freshness of spring, and this is being reflected in my card making. I love this clean design with the small floral print. I think it is “springy”! What do you think? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are important to me. And as always, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
