Pretty Petals Tin of Cards Thank You Card

by Joanne James25. June 2015 08:00

It's Thursday and you know what that means: time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary! This week we have a sketch challenge for you:

 

I decided to go with another card featuring the Pretty Petals DSP; this time, one of the really bold patterns in the stack:

I used Calypso Coral and Old Olive for my mat and base layer and the band across the front of the card, then used the bold patterned DSP to cover my card front. After adhering the band, I tied two lengths of Old Olive baker's twine around the front of my card before adhering my layered circle. Given how busy the pattern of the paper is, I decided to leave my focal point 'clean' and stamped the thank you sentiment from the 'Tin Of Cards' stamp set onto a circle of Very Vanilla. For my embellishment, I stamped the round stamp from the 'Awesomely Artistic' stamp set in Calypso Coral onto Very Vanilla and punched it out with my 1" circle punch. I added an antique brad (deliberately offset) before adhering to my card. 

This paper is quite different to the one I used on yesterday's card, but equally lovely I think. I can see me getting through this stack quite quickly!

That's all from me today; do check out the other DT member cards and we look forward to seeing you in the gallery this week. 

I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin!

Pretty Petals Thank You Panel Card

by Joanne James24. June 2015 11:21

Today I'm sharing my card based on this week's sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch where they have this great sketch layout:

There are some amazing DT and gallery cards over there (check out this one by my fellow Paper Player Karren Johnson - love it!). I chose to stick with something fairly representative of the sketch with a few layers that would give me the opportunity to showcase the lovely new Pretty petals DSP stack paper and the Greetings Thinlits. Here is my card:

I took my colour palette directly from the paper and on a base of Pool Party, matted my three columns of Pretty Petals DSP onto Old Olive. I then overlaid my sentiment banner, having cut out my sentiment in Basic Black and mounted on Calypso Coral and Old Olive, popped up on a couple of dimensionals for added height. Super simple and not a stamp in sight on this one but rather effective, with the patterned paper and curvy sentiment taking centre stage.

I just love the papers in the Pretty Petals DSP stack; if you too are a fan and would like to see more of them, do pop back tomorrow when I will have my card for the new challenge this week over at Create With Connie and Mary, featuring another of the Pretty Petals designs. That's all from me today; I have a backlog of admin and paperwork that is calling my name so today is the day I am aiming to clear the decks - wish me luck!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
