Happy Tuesday everyone!  Check out this awesome color combo from Arielle today:


Doesn’t this make you happy?  I just bought some fun felt in colors very similar to these!  I was tempted to use them on my card, but  I already had mine created; here ya go:


Easy peasy!  A couple of star punches (hint:  punch the smaller star first, then the larger star, centering the cutout!), some baker’s twine, SU’s new Stripes embossing folder and sentiments from PTI.  Oh, and matching buttons! And I used the small star punchouts on the inside as well:


Fun, huh?!  Now let’s see what you can create with these colors.  If you check out the ColourQ blog, you’ll be able to see what all the designers made this week and add your own to the mix!  Have fun!

  1. Fabulous card! Now I'm thinking I need that embossing folder...

  2. Adorable design, and those colors are fabulous together! What a great challenge!

  3. Arielle loves her bright colours and you have used them wonderfully on this card. Love the stars and well done using the negatives on the inside.

  4. Very fun happy card! Love the bright colors. And I'm a huge fan of stars. What a perfect paring with the striped embossing folder. Well you could always make a 2nd card with the felt that you have. Would be fun with such great colors.

  5. Your card is very fun and cheery! Love the way you punched out the stars! Love that new embossing folder too!

  6. This is REALLY a 'feel good' card - just makes ya smile. Love everything about it and I'll probably be CASEing it real soon. Thanks for the inspiration - hgs

  7. LeAnne I totally LOVE this easy bright & cheery card! We're just home from our 2 wk vacation to OR & WA. Playing catch up now...Barb

  8. What a perfect CAS card, LeAnne. It's gender neutral, and really age proof too!

  9. I love the way you punched your stars! Hope I can remember that technique! Thanks for inspiring my mojo back into action! Your GD is looking more and more like a big girl. What a blessing, for both of you, that you can spend your days with her!

  10. Oh, this is fabulous Leanne. The embossed background looks great with the stars... and the colors show really nicely. :o)

  11. Just love those bright coloured stars on the white bkgd :)
    Wish we had that EF over here in SU's's awesome.
    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog :o)
