ColourQ #108


Hello, friends!  It's Tuesday morning, and you know what that means--a new color palette to get your mojo going over at the ColourQ challenge blog!  I hope you can tolerate one more Halloween project from me, because I got just the inspiration I needed yesterday in the form of happy mail from WPlus9.  I was the lucky winner of A Pocketful:  Halloween during a recent contest on Lea Lawson's blog, and I was excited to sit right down and ink it up for this week's ColourQ.  Thanks, Lea!


I started with PTI's spiral notebook die on white cardstock, which was then stamped with lines in So Saffron using Mini Scrapbook Series:  Library Ledger.  I stamped the bats directly on top of that, and the little spiderwebs were stamped in opposite corners.  Since I don't have the pocket stamp or die that coordinate with this set, I used a label cut from Peach Parfait and stamped with a cute Halloween sentiment from the Pocketful set.

The Daffodil panel is textured with the Linen & Canvas impression plate and stitched to a Peach mat, then adhered to the Black card base.  I popped the notebook page up on foam dots, added some peach gems, and tucked a strip of Saffron ribbon under the label to finish things off.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait), Papertrey Ink (True Black, white)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (A Pocketful:  Halloween), Papertrey Ink (Mini Scrapbook Series:  Library Ledger)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black), Stampin' Up! (So Saffron)
Tools:  Spellbinders (Labels 18), Papertrey Ink (spiral notebook die, Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! (ribbon), Queen & Co. (gems), thread

I'm thinking these colors could work well for a Thanksgiving or fall-themed card, too, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. 

Be sure to stop by the ColourQ blog for all of the challenge details and to see the rest of the DT samples!

Thanks for visiting today!

I just love, love, love your style! You make the cutest cards on the block, IMHO. It's those little things that you do like that zig-zag stitching, the labels you use, and of course just the way you balance your colors. Great job!
