Papertreyink FEBRUARY 2017 BLOG HOP

Happy Saturday! And Papertrey Ink Bloghop day:)


Working with these Deep jewel tones was a stretch from my usual soft color palette. But in the end, I'm pleased with the card. My DH says it looks dark, moody and just a bit morbid.

  As you can see I went for a literal interpretation using the new Gathered Garden Stamps and Dies.

Just for funzies, and I'm not crazy about the lack of stamping in this first card, I made another card stamping with more of the same colors as the first.
Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel and just a touch of Hibiscus Burst.

Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with for the hop!

  8. I totally love this, LauraJane. The mix of elements is so awesome and I love the cardstock colours you used - do I own these? P.S. I'm thinking that your bell bottom pants/bicycle chain accident might have been a good thing after all, LOL.

  18. Both cards are stunning. I love those colors and the designs are very pretty. I love seeing how using the same colors with different backgrounds can give such different looks. I love the stitched and embossed layers on the first card and the scalloped layer on the second. TFS
