Happy Saturday! Wow, am I glad that week is over! It was super busy at work but I did manage to get some stuff done today… whew! It’s supposed to rain today, tomorrow and Monday on and off but it will be warmer so I’m ok with that. I did get some fun news this week that I have been waiting to share with you but I can’t hold it in any longer! I have been asked to do a presentation at Leadership in Houston Texas in January!! How cool is that?! I’m really excited about it and a little nervous but I’ll feel better once I get my presentation together. Hopefully I will see some of you there! 🙂
Today I have not one but two cards for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. Thanks to Cindy for choosing me for her pick last week! You can see my original post here and the Pals post here. This week they have given us these colors to work with…
It took me a little while to get going on what I was going to do. As I mentioned I ended up making two cards because I wasn’t thrilled with the first one. My first card used a piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper to cover the whole front of a card base of Whisper White Card Stock. The main panel is a piece of Rich Razzleberry behind a piece of Crumb Cake that I adhered a piece of Rich Razzleberry that I cut out with the Lattice Bigz Die. The butterflies are from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, one is Vellum Card Stock that I embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the other is a piece of Crushed Curry that I stamped in Crushed Curry with one of the Paper Pumpkin Stamps. My greeting is from the Happy Day Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry, the ends are flagged and behind it is a piece of Rich Razzleberry that I also embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A few Basic Jewels Pearls on the butterfly complete the card. I don’t hunk I have ever covered the whole card front with DSP before but I like it!
My second card starts off with a base of Crumb Cake Card Stock. I created the background by stamping the Positively Chevron Background Stamp in Crushed Curry on Crushed Curry. My flag is a piece of Rich Razzleberry that I punched out the left side with the Chevron Border Punch. Some Crumb Cake pieces also punched out with the Chevron Border Punch are adhered along the right. The Crumb Cake flag is stamped with one of the Paper Pumpkin Stamps in Crumb Cake and all of the pieces are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry right on the background. Now that is one card that’s full of chevrons!
I think I’m going to go with the first card for my entry. You can let me know which one you prefer by leaving me a comment, I always enjoy hearing what you think! Thanks so much for checking in with me today to see my double Pals Paper Arts cards for this week’s color challenge. Enjoy all that your Saturday has to offer! 🙂
