I posting tonight from my brand new laptop.. Whooo hoo. Now I just have to figure out how to use it. I'm not to swift with new technology... ask my friends that always have to help me! (you know who you are, and thanks for always being there for me).
Well enough of that. I am just so happy to be able to play along this week in the Paper Players #24 Color challenge. Here are the colors we are to use for this week's challenge.
The design I decided to go with is very simple and requires little explanation. Along with the Cherry Cobbler & Artichoke, I used Whisper White for my neutral with a touch of Crumb Cake ink.
I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler CS. Layer two is a mat of Artichoke and layer three is the focal point of an ornament from Delightful Decorations stamped in cobbler on Whisper White. The string bow is from Berry Christmas stamped in Crumb Cake, as is the sentiment from Four The Holidays.
I then added some dimension with leaves from a Sizzix die, and topped that with a 5 point flower punched in cobbler and topped that with a WW snowflake.
I also added some glitz by putting a quartz colored rhinestones in the middle of the snowflake as well as the center of the ornament. It's hard to see, but I thought the quartz colored rhinestone would look better with the crumb cake ink than a clear one.
Here's a peek at the inside... with carried over elements of the front except I popped the ornament with a dimensional so it would show up against the cobbler CS. The sentiment is from a retired a set.
When I finished I was looking at the scraps on the table and decided to make a second card but I flip flopped it in the opposite colors. Even though this doesn't count for the challenge, I wanted to post it too.
I thought the leaves got lost in the all the green, so I changed it up a bit, and added red rhinestones in groups of three to resemble holly. What do think?
Here's a peek at the inside of the second card, again with a touch of the front elements.
Well I was really liking these colors, so why stop there......... I decided to use up more scraps and added them to this little box I had started yesterday. The main box is made of Pear Pizzazz.
Here's final picture of the group from my afternoon of fun. I hope you like them.
