Ding Ding


Just a quick little post for today.  I got to play along with two challenges that I combined into one card!  I seem to be doing the combo deal more and more these days!  This time, iiiin the colour corner, is the awesome trio of colours, teal, magenta and grey from the Play Date Cafe challenge #185!!!  And iiiiin the sketch corner, is the fabulous, always fun CAS(E) this Sketch # 31.  DING DING!!  (okay, I'm getting a little carried away!).

Here are the colours and the sketch:

And here's my card:

I had been wanting to create a background with that hexigon stamp (Hero Arts Studio Calico) and I love grey for a background. It's soft yet it makes its presence known!  And add a punch of teal and magenta - such a pretty colour combo!  The flowers (which are paper pieced) and the sentiment in magenta are from the Truth Is set from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps (so versatile!).   The "you are" sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  The heart is a wooden veneer from Studio Calico that I inked magenta to match, and the little bow on the heart is just white twine which I inked up in grey.  I may have gone a little crazy with the splatters on this one too!  But I do love my splatters!!

That's it for me today!
Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit!!


  1. Wow - awesome job combining the different stamps and elements of your card! So perfectly coordinated that I was sure it was all one set! Beautiful job paper piecing the flowers - especially cutting such nice smooth curves and that skinny mini stem! I love the grey background stamp too - stunning backdrop for the other colors in your card.

  2. Squeal! Love, love, love this! Colours - soft and pretty! Stamps - super cool, eye-catching placement, and paper-piecing at exquisite level. Background - awesome - the perfect stage for the oh-so-gorgeous magenta and teal! Background stamping - another "I should try this" added to my list. Yes, you are quite the inspiration, and yes, this is a winner card for the challenge and 'just because'! Beauty!

  3. So perfectly done!!! Love everything, how did you do it??? Come up with such a great design.. Love the blossoms, super sweet. And the sentiments are so uplifting!!
