Orange. Do you love it? It is the color for 2012. (people who are smart and fashionable tell me so) This week the Play Date Cafe is embracing the warm shade with open arms. Not only is our color story gorgeous and fresh, we are being sponsored by the ever-so talented, Theresa Momber, illustrator for Gina K. stamps.
Orangesicle, Baby Blue, and Basil
My card feels like spring and uses lots of Papertrey goodies. I thought I would include a few simple steps for you today to create the focal images:
- Create double-ended panel using the Half & Half dies then stamp with BB: Woodgrain.
- Cut Mat Stack 5 and stamp with coordinating flourish from the Mat Stack 5 stamp set. I used Winter Sky ink from A-Muse Studio.
- The circle is cut from Limitless Layers 2 and stamped with Wreath for All Seasons. The "home" and "heart" sentiment were isolated from Love Lives Here.
- A sweet house from Love Lives Here is the final touch.
We hope you will join us this week in the Cafe.
ALL Supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
