ColourQ 69

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Every once in a while, Arielle throws me a curve ball….that’s what she says, anyway! I think this week was it...this ColourQ really had me stumped! The colors say “fall” but the thermometer said “zero” yesterday and I just couldn’t do fall! So here’s the “cue”:

and here’s my take on it:

My little tabs were rounded with the 1” circle punch, then pierced, faux-stitched, stamped with the retired Linen BG stamp, and buttoned up. The card itself is textured Whisper White; sentiment is from Curly Cute. I did some piercing at the bottom as well:

Then I thought I might try another----pulled out an older set that hasn’t seen ink in a while—Always—and did another 6” card:

Sentiment is from Three Little Words.

Now…..how about some Cassidy pix? This is what happens when a 5-month-old gets a stamp set in her hands for the first time (ignore the peach-stained bib):

Yep….into the mouth it goes!

Thanks for visiting today---be sure to check out the other CQC designers at the ColourQ blog---Arielle has recruited a whole new batch of scrappers---more inspiration for your viewing pleasure!

  1. You did a great job with these colors! I'd have been completely clueless to use them together!
    I can't wait to see what Cassidy does when she's old enough to get inky :)

  8. I love both of your cards!!! And how funny is it that we both used Three Little Words for the sentiment??? I swear I didn't see your card beforehand, lol!

    Your little cutie is just so precious! I see you're starting her off early - *giggle*

  10. OMGosh! These are GORGEOUS! I love them both, but I really like the first one because of the design and the paper piercing. And the baby is starting early, huh? Too cute!

  11. Both cards are great - but I think the first is my favorite. Love the colors you used too. Then there is our girl's first intro to the stamp world - soooo sweet. Some day she'll be sitting beside you at the stamp table making cute little cards. ahhhhhhhh

  13. Both are gorgeous! I would have had a tough time coming up with one design in these colors. Love the one w/the buttons!

    ...and, I think she's a born stamper ;)

  14. Oh I love these cards! You always come up with the best ideas. I love all the white space.
    Casidy is showing an interest in stamping at the earliest age. LOL She is starting under a true master.

  15. I love the CAS take on the inspiration! It is so fresh & fun. But still has so many little details there to catch the eye.
