Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you're able to spend some time with the ones you love most today!
I've got a new ColourQ palette to share with you, and it was perfect for making a couple of cards for my kids.
I loved the challenge of using vanilla and white together, as I don't usually think of it but love the way it looks on other people's cards.
On my daughter's card, I stamped the frame and bunny image from PTI's Tiny Treats: Valentine onto a spiral notebook die cut. I wrapped the panel with cream ribbon, stitched a pink button in place, and popped the panel up on foam dots.
The white card base has a panel of Pool Party cardstock stitched with a strip of patterned paper from PTI's Library Ledger pack, which has those sweet cream dots to match the ribbon.
Two more pink buttons add the final touch.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Pool Party), Papertrey Ink (White)
Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink (Library Ledger)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Tiny Treats: Valentine)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Real Red), Inkadinkadoo (Black), Copic marker
Tools: Papertrey Ink (spiral notebook die, Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories: Michaels (ribbon), buttons, DMC floss, thread
My daughter's card was inspired by the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge this week, but since a Waltzingmouse Stamps image is required for the challenge, I made my son's card with the same sketch and the Half Pint Heroes set. I also used paper piecing, so this qualifies for the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.
I just adore how this polka dot car turned out! I paper pieced the entire car body with PTI's Distressed Dots paper, then pieced the bumpers with Pure Poppy cardstock. I added a "road" using journaling lines from PTI's Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger. The hearts are from Tag-its #4 and the sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes.
Isn't this little guy so cute? My son loves this stamp set!
