deconstructed simplicity

For this week's Color Throwdown Challenge in shades of aqua, purple, blue and yellow! I've used Reverse Confetti's Modern Floral Stack Confetti Cuts set along with a sentiment from PaperTrey Ink. I deconstructed both the die cut leaves and sentiment and then reassembled them on either side of a narrow strip of card stock to create a minimalist-modern-Orla-Kiely inspired card. Enjoy.

Color Throwdown 555 - hello

Hello.
I have my weekly Color Throwdown card to share with you featuring a dreamy combination of green, yellow, pink and lavendar. I'm not usually drawn to softer colors such as this, but I'm pleased with the results of my watercolored efforts.

I also want to share the inspiration for my card which I came across on my "Cool Cards" Pinterest board. THIS card by Joy Taylor served as my literal inspiration but I used Silhouette cut files to recreate the shapes of her card and then stamped the teeny 'hello' from PaperTrey Ink's Desktop Design (I don't believe it's available any longer).

I fell in love with this company just about a year ago when my sweet friend, Lisa, joined the PF design team. I just had to know where she got this adorable image from, clicked on through to Picket Fence and immediately fell head over heels with their designs.

Color Throwdown 541

Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. This week's colors are pale pink, brown and black, the perfect reason to use my new favorite bear from Waffle Flower's Books and Coffee set. Those specs are so.adorable. 

Sticking with my usual, I water colored the image with Zig markers, and then added a black moon and wood veneer stars. The fun frame is Paper Smooches' Fancy Frames

Color Throwdown 540

This week's Color Throwdown Challenge is as bright and cheery as they come in yellow, orange, blue and green. My sweet and simple card uses a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint III and an absolutely adorable image from Mama Elephant's Potted Pretties. Don't the two make a perfect pair? Love how the plants are 'hugging' one another.

hello!

A fun and modern take on Easter, don't you think?  It's also teetering on the side of vintage as I used an oldie from Stampin' Up! - Definitely Decorative Vegetable Garden (no longer available...that's how old!) in combo with that fun, scripty set from Right At Home - Script Greetings.
