You Have My Heart--PP #277

January 10, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  I am the hostess this week and I chose some of my favorite colors to work with!  Bright, fun and cheerful-- Gloomy winter days call for HAPPY colors! We can't wait to see what you create!  

My base card is Real Red and the next layer is Tempting Turquoise.  I used My Favorite Things-Blueprints 15 dies to cut all the pieces on my card.  I created a plaid paper using Simon Says Stamp-Jumbo Stripes Stamp Set and the three colors-Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps-Special Delivery  I added a couple Tempting Turquoise candy dots and some Wink of Stella on the heart for shine.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!

  8. Great colors and a great card, Claire! I'm very impressed that you made your own plaid paper, and the layout of your card is such fun! Thanks for an awesome challenge!

  9. Response question about burlap on my card: Are you familiar with PowerPoint? The burlap is composed of three parts as follows: Main body and two fuzz edges. The main body is a rectangle modified with the subtract function of have the notch on right side and “heart” cutouts (1/2 of desired length and width). There is one fuzz edge at first which is just a rectangle (2/3 of desired length and width). The target color and a shade of dark black are used in both forms. The main pattern is a “75%”. The fuzz is “Light vertical”. Copy paste both to bitmaps. Use the “Artistic Effects > Texturizer“ on both bitmaps. Stretch the objects to desired size. Duplicate the fuzz to make a complete picture. Select the 3 part and copy as bitmap and align it in the card. It took a lot of experimentation to come up with this.

  10. BTW, you have great card. I like the mix of geometric objects.

  11. Love the patterns and layers and how you still were able to make a fresh and clean lined card!
    So beautiful!
