Good morning! Are you ready for a new ColourQ challenge? I thought you would be. This week Arielle has served up a perfect spring palette in an adorable inspiration photo. Check it out:
I also used Fall-to-Layout #136 from Clean&Simple. I wasn't crazy about this card as I was making it, but it has grown on me.
I started by stamping a background from PTI's Background Basics: Retro in Old Olive onto a white card base. I thought it needed something else, so I stamped the large dogwood branch from WPlus9's Flora & Fauna I in aqua ink a couple of times.
The sentiment is from WPlus9's Spring Post, with a single dogwood blossom stamped in aqua behind it. The labels are PTI's Fillable Frames #10 and Mat Stack 1. The Aqua Mist cardstock strip is debossed with the Woodgrain impression plate, just because I can't seem to put it down!
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (So Saffron, Old Olive), Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, white)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Flora & Fauna I, Spring Post), Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Retro, Fillable Frames #10)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Old Olive), Clearsnap (Seaglass)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #10 die, Mat Stack 1 die, Woodgrain impression plate), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (buttons), Stampin' Up! (ribbon)
Do you have any spring or Easter cards you need to finish up? Or maybe a sweet new baby card or layout? See what you can do with these colors, then be sure to link it up at the ColourQ blog!
Things will be a little quiet around here while my daughter is home on spring break this week. Unfortunately we are expecting rain and cool weather most of the week, so I can't just send the kids out to play on the deck while I stamp! LOL!
Hope the sun is shining wherever you are today! Thanks for stopping by!
