Papertrey Ink's 6th Anniversary: Color Inspiration No. 5

Dear Reader,

Tonight found me scrambling to come up with a card after I spent a good bit of time unpacking my Studio Calico box full of my February goodies after I got home from work.   It is a good day when my Studio Calico box is delivered by my friendly UPS guy.

Anyway, Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink challenged us with six color inspiration options.  You can find out more about it HERE.

I went for a soft pretty color combination which is different than my norm:

This is the card I created using the colors (perhaps you can see that I was inspired by Maile Belles?):

I started my card by stamping nearly every image from Label Basics in soft stone ink on a piece of cardstock that is similar in color to fine linen.  I rounded the bottom corner of the cardstock and adhered it to a kraft card base rounding the bottom corners.  I cut a piece of scarlet jewel cardstock using photo finish strips die collection (simple strip) and also cut a piece of patterned paper from Hello Friend 6" Glitz Paper Pad (which happens to have shades of fine linen, kraft and melon berry) using the same die that I then cut thinner than the scarlet jewel strip.  I cut out the tiny tags die and stamped "love" from the Tiny Tags stamp set in a ink similar to scarlet jewel.  I tied the tag onto the strip using twine.  I adhered the strip to the card base using dimensional adhesive and lastly I "sprinkled" sequins in colors that reminded me of melon berry.

There you have it.  That is all from me tonight as it is time for sleep.

Happy creating,

Love card
