This week at the Play Date Cafe we have a very bold color story... which I softened a bit, but loved working with. I used some of my favorite stamps from The Craft's Meow and really enjoyed creating this garden-y card.
Plum, Pear, & Moldy Cheese
(Moldy cheese! How much do you love that for a great blue?!)
Two things I am currently loving:
Stamping my own backgrounds/patterned paper.
Shimmer mist. Why am I the last person to get on the bandwagon with this stuff? Seriously, it is sassy and sparkly, and oh so lovely. Plus, it elicits oohs & aahs from my 3 year old. ;)
This week in the Cafe is bittersweet as we say goodbye to two very talented designers and friends: Andrea Ewen & Michele Gross. Andrea's style is one that I have loved and admired for.ever. Her cards are beautiful and always perfectly shabby chic. Michele's cards are always fun and she is the queen of clean & simple design. Both of these ladies have become friends and I know that I will continue to be inspired by their sweet spirits and crafty creations. Be sure to leave them some love this week on their blogs and add them to your Google Readers - they both have SO much more to share with you as their journeys continue.
Please join us this week in the Cafe - we have a great prize from Sweet N' Sassy Stamps. I can't wait to see what you create - make it sassy! ;)
