When I sat down to make my card for this week’s Paper Players Green-and-White Color Challenge, I missed my opportunity to make a St. Patrick’s Day card. I immediately knew which paper and stamp set I wanted to use, so I didn’t even think about the upcoming holiday. ***Taking all of that back*** Today I’m excited to share a card that was created as a “thank you” for the St. Patrick’s Day gifts I’ll surely receive tomorrow:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Scenic Sayings. Scenic Sayings is one of the first stamp sets I ordered from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. I love the big, bold sentiments and reach for them often. While I’vust what I wanted – bold words with open spaceds I could color in.e pulled Scenic Sayings from my stamp shelf several times over the past year, I was surprised to find that today is the first time I’ve actually inked it up. The “Thank You So Much” sentiment gave me just wanted – a bold sentiment with an open space I could color in. PLUS – it looks so great for my “St. Patrick’s Day Thank You” project.
- A Little Coloring. I stamped this fun sentiment right on the page of Mint Macaron and Whisper White Flowers with my Archival Basic Gray ink pad. Once that ink dried, I colored in the “thank” and the “you” with a Mint Macaron. The additional ink looks great against the background of the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper page.
- Simple Color Combination. I used Basic Gray to accent the Mint Macaron and white in this card. Such a simple color combination – the dusty Mint Macaron (please don’t go, Mint Macaron!) looks crisp against white and dustier against gray. If you like this combination, too, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Scenic Sayings Papers: Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper, Mint Macaron, Basic Gray Inks: Archival Basic Gray, Stampin’ Write Marker (Mint Macaron) Accessories: White Perfect Accents, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
