All Abloom For Pals Paper Arts

by Joanne James29. July 2014 15:11

The sun is shining here in the UK today and I have a similarly bright and beautiful card for you - no snowflakes today, I promise! Today's card uses the sketch over at Pals Paper Arts as its starting point:

I love a good sketch and there are lots of them out there in blog land this week; I liked the squares on this one, so many possibilities! I took the opportunity to use mine to showcase another of the gorgeous patterns in the All Abloom Designer Series Paper stack - here's my card:

My base card is Daffodil Delight with a mat of Island Indigo, followed by a sheet of yellow polka dots from the Brights DSP collection - these colours echo those of my chosen feature DSP. I matted my patterned squares on Island Indigo too and did the same for my central square, which I chose to include my sentiment. Lastly, I finished with a layered flower made with my 'vintage' Floral Fusion Sizzlits centred with a candy dot. I know this is now retired, but it made the perfect flower to echo the pattern in my chosen paper.

That's all from me today - I have a few more jobs to do before rewarding myself with a bike ride, so must get on! Back tomorrow with my card for this week's Colour Me...! design team card and the Wednesday Weekly Deals.

Until then, happy stampin'!

Postage Due Telford Swap

by Joanne James27. August 2013 19:30

A quick post from me today. Here is the last of my favourite Telford swaps to share: this one was by Maria (you can see her blog here):

I like it because it used a number of products and sets I don't have and showcases some beautiful clear embossing. I love the overall finished effect of this card and the unusual colour combination too.

Back tomorrow with another of my cards; until then, happy stampin'!
