PP477 Delicate Hello


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Ann is our Paper Players hostess today with a yummy color challenge for us:


I had made this card a couple weeks ago as a sample for my club girls, and when I saw the challenge, I knew I had to share it, especially since my allergies have been making me feel less than creative lately!  The Honey Bee stamp set and the coordinating SAB DSP, Golden Honey Specialty, make creating pretty, delicate cards a breeze!  So here we go:


I took a piece of the small floral design DSP and used markers in Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler to fill in the flowers.  I also stamped one of the flowers from the set, used markers to color and shade it, then diecut it with the Detailed Bee Dies.  I used the stripe from the same DSP to make a simple horizontal piece to go across the the florals, popped up my flower and added a simple "hello", stamped on a stitched rectangle diecut:


I added some Rococo Rose faceted gems and mounted it all on a Blushing Bride card base.  I think the prints and patterns are so pretty, especially with these feminine pinks and reds!

I hope you'll play with our color challenge....I know it's close to Valentine's, but these colors don't have to be just for that occasion, they're pretty just to say "hello"!  Share your creation with us at The Paper Players, and while you're there, make sure you check out what the DT has created as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy is taking drum lessons at school, and her band teacher came to her classroom on Friday to give them a demonstration on percussion instruments!  I can't wait to hear about it!  


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, such a pretty take on the challenge. I love the soft, subtle colors and we were both on the same wavelength coloring this paper. I love it in the black and white, but also love that you can color it.
Drum lessons... now that's cool!

Such a pretty card, LeAnne! How clever to color the flowers in the right shades. Love the black and white stripes. It adds so much dimension! Such a simple card with a big impact! I hope you feel better soon. So cool Cassidy is learning to play the drums. I know she will love band! I always did. I played the saxophone. LOL! Have a great week! XX

Beautiful card LeAnne! The flowers colored variously in the reds and pinks turned out so pretty and using the striped horizontal piece on top of the floral background looks fabulous! Love the single flower stems and the rococo gems! It's wonderful your granddaughter is interested in music, I hope she finds her passion with it!

This is a masterclass on how to use a stamp set and coordinating papers LeAnne! I love that you coloured each tiny flower and the striped paper is a fabulous addition!
Bet Cassidy had a whale of a time in Percussion class! Vicky x
