It’s February 1 – can you believe it?! Joanne James has a fun sketch for us this week at the Paper Players. I play along with these challenges as often as I can, but I especially like this sketch. It gave me a perfect opportunity to create a fun Valentine’s Day card that (not by design) has no stamping on it. I used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and Large Letters Framelits Dies to create this fun card:
- Playing with the Sketch. While I love how Joanne’s sketch includes two panels that are divided by four shapes, I couldn’t make my vision work on paper. As such, I switched things up to make them work for me – the inspiration is still there, though. I changed the orientation of the card from landscape to portrait and dropped my shapes a bit as they were so narrow that they became muddled on the busy paper I chose to use. I love that sketches can be recreated literally or can be used for inspiration.
- Sending Love. I’ve used this paper before (and I’ll definitely use it again), but I really love this Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. It’s been very popular with my customers over the past couple of weeks – they know that February 14 is just around the corner, and they will be ready with the papers they need. I paired a white-based pattern with a red-based pattern to keep things perfectly balanced.
- Letters for You Bundle. I have gotten a lot of great use out of the The Large Letters Framelits Dies Bundle. Yes – it’s the single most expensive item in any of our current catalogs, but it’s SO worth it. AND during Sale-a-Bration you automatically earn TWO free Sale-a-Bration items when you buy they bundle and you are really close to another one. 🙂 If you’ve been holding off, this might be the Valentine’s Day gift idea you’ve been looking for:
Papers: Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Real Red, Basic Black Accessories: Large Letters Framelits Dies, Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (hearts collection), Basic Black Baker’s Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Paper Players site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
