I hope you all are having a super-wonderful Christmas and that you are surrounded by the people you love (unless you choose to be alone – then I wish you that). While I’m celebrating this wonderful holiday today, the blog must keep moving along. I’ve created a beautiful, Springy wedding card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge. Here’s my card:
- Sage Advice. A wise man once said, “Rules provide guard rails. You are safe to bounce around inside the guard rails as long as you don’t bust through them.” OK, I said that. I am a wise man. Here’s what I was trying to say – this sketch is meant to provide inspiration. While the “rules” say my project should be inspired by the sketch, nothing says it has to have triangles or that the three shapes should be pointing to the right. As such, I replaced the triangles with cake pieces and flipped the sketch. Do you see it? Do you see how I honored the sketch with sticking to it 100%?
- Your Perfect Day. What a beautiful stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog! The images are very modern and very clean, and the fonts are gorgeous. Rather than pair them with the beautiful Designer Series Paper that’s included in this suite in the Occasions Catalog, I paired this set with the papers from All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (available currently in the Annual Catalog). These tiny patterns are a perfect complement to this stamp set.
- Color Combination. I’m not a HUGE fan of Pistachio Pudding, one of Stampin’ Up!’s 2013-2015 In Colors. I don’t dislike it – I just don’t find a lot of reasons to use it. I was excited by the combination of this paper with the tiny white polka dots and the floral print, so I went with it. I added Basic Gray and Whisper White to balance out all the green. If you like this combination, too, please feel free to save this:
