It’s Friday – and that means one thing. OK, it means several things (for example, it’s the end of my work week, it’s jeans day in the office and today rhymes with “spy play”). What I was trying to say was – it’s time for a FabFriday challenge. Yippee! This week’s sketch has so many possibilities – and I’m pretty sure I tossed ALL of them around in my head this week – and several made it to paper. There’s a deadline for everything, though, so I settled in on an idea and went with it. Glad I did. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Stamp, Snip, Glue. This image looks really simple, but there’s a lot of stamping, snipping and gluing going on here. I stamped the entire image (masking the sentiment) in Baked Brown Sugar on the panel of Whisper White. On scrap pieces of Whisper White, I stamped the image in Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz. I then snipped and snipped and snipped, followed by gluing and gluing and gluing.
- Color Combination. I wanted to step away from Christmas and Thanksgiving cards for just a bit. These colors really appeal to me – the softness of Crisp Cantaloupe and Pear Pizzazz blend well with the brightness of Calypso Coral and the neutral look of Baked Brown Sugar. If you like this combination, too, feel free to save this:
- An Understated Base. I love this sentiment framed in these circles. I was about to glue it all down when I thought I needed to add something else – know the feeling? I didn’t want the addition to pop, so I added two soft, thin banners beneath the sentiment. These banners pulled in two of the colors from the image on the card – Pear Pizzazz and Crisp Cantaloupe without taking away from the beauty of the image above.
