Hello! Is your week off to a good start? I have to admit, I'm having a hard time getting back in the swing of things after the Christmas break. Every couple of months or so I just get so overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done, with no time to do any of it.
Luckily for me, this week's new color combo at the ColourQ challenge gave me a chance to forget about all of my responsibilities for a while and just play with paper. I'm loving the color palette this week!
And, we have an extra special treat for you this week as we are introducing a new member of the Royal Court Design Team, the immensely talented and super sweet Silke Ledlow! I've had the pleasure of designing with Silke before, and I just know she's going to knock our socks off every week. Be sure to stop by her blog, My Life, and give her a warm welcome!
For my card this week, I had to sub Basic Gray for Going Gray, and the baker's twine is closer to Tangerine than Pumpkin, but it works.
I managed to CASE my own ColourQ card from 2 weeks ago without even realizing it! I stamped a sentiment from PTI's Faux Ribbon onto the white panel, then debossed it with the Polka Dot impression plate and rounded the top corners.
I added some striped Basic Gray paper at the bottom and layered an eyelet border along the top edge. For just a pop of orange, I tied Mandarin baker's twine across the border. Finally, I added a trio of pink hearts cut with PTI's heart dies and mounted the whole panel onto a Raspberry Fizz card base.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz, white), Stampin' Up! (Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink)
Patterned paper: Stampin' Up! (Neutrals paper pack)
Stamp: Papertrey Ink (Faux Ribbon)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (heart dies, eyelet border die, Polka Dot impression plate), corner rounder
Accessories: The Twinery (Mandarin baker's twine)
I can't wait to see all of the creations with these colors! I hope you'll play along, too.
Thanks for your visit today, friends! Have a great Tuesday!
