Full Of Love With A Pop Of Polished Pink PP604

by Joanne James14. August 2022 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Ann Marie to host this week and she has an interesting colour challenge for you to work with:


Black and white and a pop of any colour - how fun! I reached for some black and white designer paper, my 'Full of Love' stamp set and some Polished Pink cardstock and a selection of pink Stampin' Blends and set to work. This is what I came up with:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I originally reached for my Perfectly Pencilled DSP, but having decided to use the 'Full of Love' stamp set, I decided some (retired) All together DSP would be a better choice with its heart pattern, to tie in with the stamps on the stamped envelopes. I coloured the blank hearts on the paper with both shades of my Polished Pink Blends markers, then added a panel of Polished Pink cardstock, that I stamped some tone-on-tone hearts across the centre. I added some twine, then a row of stamped envelopes that I fussy cut from one of the main stamps, before overlaying a heat embossed sentiment:


A sprinkling of (retired) white resin hearts, in-colour gems and rhinestones complete my card.

I originally made this card with something else in mind, but I got a little carried away and it evolved into a pretty card perfect for today's challenge and just the card to send a little love someone's way!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Absolutely perfect with its "pop" of Polished Pink, Joanne! I love the little letters spanning the front of the card. The "bling things" are amazing. This is a fabulous card!

Joanne, the touch of pink is just perfect and I love the clustered envelopes with the sentiment on top.  You know, I'd forgotten how much fun it was receiving letters in the post!  And that flutter of ooooo... when I heard the postie open the letter box!  Fabulous card, my friend

I totally had to look up the stamp set you used because I didn't remember the little envelope--clever of you to use the center of a bigger stamp!  And I love that your featured color is Polished Pink, when it first debuted I thought we did NOT need another pink and now it's probably my FAVORITE pink!  Love the mix of embellishments surrounding our little love notes!
