Amy Lazzell is hosting this week’s sketch challenge at the Pals Paper Arts challenge! I immediately knew I wanted to feature a sneak peek at Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack when I sat down to create a card for her challenge. The hard part? Deciding which beautiful pattern of gorgeous colors I’d showcase. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. This 6″ x 6″ stack of papers is the most versatile pack for the Fall seasons. While the papers are included in a Christmas-themed suite of products, many of the pages are perfect for Autumn and Thanksgiving. Filled with plaids and textured patterns in Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green (are there more perfect Christmas colors?) and Delightful Dijon and Basic Black (hello, Fall!) – all on a base of Crumb Cake or Whisper White (perfect for ANY season). I know you’ll love these sweet papers!
- Coloring White Perfect Accents. Amy’s sketch includes three elements in the top, right corner of the card. I could have tried to think of something clever for that corner, but my wide bands of paper left me little room. Small, black accents in that corner, though, would give me the exact thing I needed to pull black into this card. I colored a couple of Perfect White Accents with a Black permanent marker and added them to the card.
- Color Combination. I adore the warmth of the colors in this card. The Basic Black gives an unexpected punch of awesome to these Delightful Dijon. I added Crumb Cake to the mix to add warmth the rich tones. If you like this combination of color, too, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Watercolor Wishes (stamp set included in the Watercolor Wishes kit) Papers: Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Very Vanilla Inks: Archival Basic Black Accessories: Layering Ovals Framelits, Perfect White Accents, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to The Pals Paper Arts site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
