ColourQ 171


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Arielle has a fun masculine palette to share today:

I did some paper piecing on a  cute little Alley Way stamp to mimic the stripes in the jacket:


To keep the stripe theme going, I embossed part of the Crumb Cake mat with my Stripes embossing folder.  The sentiment was computer generated, and the anchor is from the cute little Happy Whale Embosslit available in the Spring mini catalog!  I mounted my sailboat on an embossed star and a banner from some Authentique paper:


What can you do with these fun colors?  Be sure to sail on over to the ColourQ blog to check out ALL the designers’ samples and get some inspiration of your own!  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!  And remember, if you have any questions….shoot me an email! Happy Stamping!


Oh, the fun you can have with a bunch of cotton balls!


Squish them in your hands:


Line them up on the bathroom sink:


Or make a pile in Grammy’s hand:

Every time I look at this I love it a little more! The little sailboat is so cute and I love how the combination of stripes just draws the eye in.

Cute card. I like that DP you've used and the star behind the sailboat.
Isn't it fun to see how the simplest things can spark the imagination and create so much fun?
