First Design Team card

Welcome to a new year of Pals Paper Arts challenges.  We have a wonderful calendar of projects for you to participate in this year!  To start it off, this week is a color challenge ... Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum.  Click on over to the Pals Paper Arts to play and upload your card.  Here is what I came up with ...


Stamps:  Because I Care (Hostess set)
Paper:  White, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum
Ink:  Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  pastels, sponge dauber, Hodgepodge Hardware, ice brads, ribbon, corner rounder, crop-a-dile, stamp-a-ma-jig, scorer
  • I didn't have Perfect Plum ribbon, so I took my 1/8" taffeta ribbon and ran it over my Perfect Plum ink pad.  Works great every time!
  • Sponge daubers and pastels were used to highlight the flower and leaves.
  • The bottom portion was scored to add a touch of detail to the card.
I hope 2011 brings you and your family good health and happiness!

Have a great day,
Pam~

Welcome, welcome, welcome Pam! So glad you're now part of the DT! And your first card is wonderful! Great idea with the ribbon if you don't have the color you want and I love how you colored the hydrangea! All of your details make one terrific card.

I love the graduated sizing of the brads - it really adds nice detail. And thanks for the reminder on how to dye ribbon. I always forget about dyeing white taffeta ribbon. Beautiful spring card! Now if only spring would hurry up! :)
