Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Today I've got a card I'm sharing for the Papertrey Ink Color Inspiration Contest. The challenge was to chose from one or more of the color combinations provided on the PTI site and create a card or project using those colors. For my card I wanted to use the colors from the color inspiration no.6 with its bright fun colors and I was also inspired by the floral tag in the inspiration photo. Along with the colors and the thought that I wanted use florals I also was inspired by one of Erin Lincoln's cards that she picked as one of her favorites using the Chevron border die. Erin has such a fun eclectic style and I loved the way she die-cut and pieced her Chevron stripes, so I decide to give it a try.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Happy for You for my sentiment and Fillable Frames #5 with the coordinating die. I ended up using several different floral stamps from the Flower Fusion sets and Natural Beauties and randomly stamped onto a white piece of cardstock. Then I die-cut three stripes from my stamped piece using my Chevron die, trimmed them down to fit my card and added a few designer paper pieces and a few pink pieces which I embossed using the Simple Stripes Impression plate.
