It's Thursday and time to play at Pals Paper Arts. The Pals are hosting a Color Challenge featuring Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade and a third color of your choice! Taking my cue from the colors in this Designer Series pattern, from the SAB Everyday Enchantment collection, I decided to use Pool Party as my third color. I hope you enjoy my fun and funky color combination!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips
The finished dimensions of this card are 4-1/4" by 5-1/2".
- Lazy Daisy! Stampin' Up!'s Paper Daisies are perfect for a quick floral accent. I layered three of the small daisies, making snips in the petals of the top two. Then I spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and scrunched it up. For the photo, I have opened it up a little so you can see the Pool Party Designer Printed Brad which I used for the center.
- Pool Party Pennant! The "So Grateful" sentiment, from Apothecary Art, was inked in Always Artichoke and stamped onto Pool Party card stock. One end was flagged and the other curled to add interest. The sentiment was then placed onto a Lucky Limeade Oval Frame, which had been adhered to an Always Artichoke Labels Framelit. A Pool Party scrunchy double bow and Always Artichoke leaves, punched using the Bird Builder Punch, draw attention right to the center panel. Do you need a refresher on how to make a double bow? Here is my Double Bow Video.
- Pearl-fection! Basic Pearls are the perfect embellishment on the Pool Party panel, which has been embossed with the Finial Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. And what could be prettier than Pearls on the Always Artichoke Scallop Trim Border!
- To bow..or not to bow! My original card sported a Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organdy Ribbon bow on top of the Pool Party scrunchy bow...just to add a bit of "foofiness"! But then, I decided maybe it was too foofy and removed it! What do you think?
