I'm taking a quick break from stamping to share a project with you today. My team is due here in about 2 1/2 hours so I need to be brief!
I found the cutest color challenge over on the Paper Player's Blog today and I thought I'd play along to make my swaps for the meeting tonight. I didn't get a chance to play at all last week! Total bummer for me!
I had big plans for the blizzard we just went through! I was going to stamp the day and night away. When it came down to it, having my family together, I just didn't feel like it! So I spent some time with them instead! At the bottom, I will share some photos from the blizzard of 2013. For more, you're gonna have to facebook friend me! :) Just sayin'
Patio Party Designer Paper because it fit's this challenge. I have lovingly nicknamed Summer Starfruit, Peuce. I have had a few successes with the color, but from the beginning it's not my favorite. So, starting with a designer paper was a great place to start from! The DUO color to Primrose Petals is Pink Pirouette. The challenge colors can look very dark (right on top of one another), so I decided to start with a lighter shade, then sponge the Primrose petals on to bring it up to that color. I really like the effect! What do you think?
I love how 3 dimensional this card is. Here's a close up of the pinwheel. It's a new die from Stampin up that just came out with the new Occasions catalog. And ya wanna know the kicker?? It's less than $5 bucks! Serious cuteness for a really great price, I'm totally in! :)
I used the VERY ADORABLE Wishes Your Way stamp set that bundles up nicely with the pinwheel die because the sentiments will blow you away! :)
Now here's a few photos from the blizzard!
This is my sweet hubby. We were digging a path to one another! He is ROCKIN that hat! Take's a big personality to pull off a hat like that.
This is me after getting two of the cars out of the yard, I was working on getting my truck out of the yard.
This is my hubby's car. I had already started digging him out. You couldnt actually see his car unless you were looking down from upstairs. What a whopper of a storm!! Thanks for letting me share today!
