Edited to add: A few of you suggested that I submit this card to the CAS-ual Fridays color block challenge, so I've updated the post with a link to the challenge. Thanks, gals!
Hi friends! I feel like I'm barely coming up for air, I've been so busy lately. The last week of Kindergarten for my daughter meant lots of school events to attend, plus a birthday party today. The rest of the month promises to be just as full-to-the-brim, but with fun activities and visits from friends, so I can't really complain!
I have been missing my time in my craft room though, and my time visiting all of you! I managed to sneak in a card today for Dawn's Color Cue challenge. I missed out on the last one, so I was determined to finish this one well before the deadline. You all know how much I love my WPlus9 stamps, right?
This card also qualifies for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use color blocks.
What a fun and colorful palette! This design took a few unexpected turns as I worked with it, but I like how it turned out. I started by cutting small squares of cardstock in Pure Poppy, Plum Pudding, and Hawaiian Shores, then stamped them with a woodgrain pattern from WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes using Versamark and arranged them in a grid.
The leaf image from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions was stamped in chartreuse ink, cut out and popped up on foam dots. I like the idea of a grid with one element that breaks free of the boundaries. The branch left a perfect negative space for the sentiment "Hello", from Spring Post. I added a double line frame with a black pen and a few buttons to finish it off.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Plum Pudding, Hawaiian Shores, white)
Stamps: WPlus9 (Woodgrain Silhouettes, Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, Spring Post)
Ink: Clearsnap (Moss Green), Versamark, Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Accessories: Sakura (black pen), Papertrey Ink (buttons)
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far! Thanks for dropping in!
