Being So Sweet

Happy Monday, peeps!  No Cassidy today, and I was able to get a little stamping done today that wasn't for a DT!  The JUGS challenge this week is pastels, and the Global Design Project also has the pastel colors of Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Petal Pink:

That little row-of-hearts die in the Be Mine framelit set was calling my name, so I cut it out four times:  once each in Whisper White, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Petal Pink, then I went to work:

I used a piece of Adhesive Sheet on the back of the white outline piece, then used some Multi-Adhesive and my Take Your Pick tool to pick up and place the hearts back randomly in the outline.  I am challenging myself to USE THE STAMPS I OWN, and I am going to try to feature them alphabetically backwards, LOL!  SO...this card uses a sentiment from Treat Time and the color splotches from Touches of Texture:

Does anyone else find Petal Pink an awkward color to use?  I don't think the ink looks very pink here, it looks more orange to me..what do you think?  I miss my Pink Pirouette!!  Anyway, my final addition was a few pearls and some Wink of Stella on the white hearts, which you can't see here, but is quite pretty!

So hard to believe how much Cassidy is growing up!  She is still a tomboy but lets Dana "do" her hair sometimes!

Thanks for visiting today!  So happy you dropped in!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I always enjoy your posts. I so agree using the stamps already owned. I just made that most often seems I just purchase something similar to what I already own. Next order will be paper, ink etc. I look forward to your future posts. Go for it.

LeAnne thanks so much for your Petal Pink comments. Like you I miss my sweet Pink Pirouette. It’s just the most lovely pink. Petal Pink really reminds me of Crisp Cantaloupe. Despite that your card is just beautiful. Your cards truly inspire me.

Cassidy is growing up so fast! She's just as beautiful as ever and I love her fancy hair! Your pastel thank you card is gorgeous, LeAnne! I tend to like more pastel hues so I love it and I do agree with you that the Petal Pink looks more coral than pink. :( Have a great week! Hugs, Darnell

This is darling LeAnne! I like the heart die cut and the color you've used. That is a different pink. It looks like it has a bit of coral in it!

Linda Callahan said...

Yes, your card is sweet! You did a wonderful job on the design. I agree about the Petal Pink. I had to use it for my upcoming Thursday blog hop challenge and I was not thrilled with the tone on tone that I did. I love the challenge you gave yourself. I have thought about making a card each day using my sets going forward in the alphabet but it would take me a couple of Glad you had time to play on MLK day. Hugs and blessings to you.
