Welcome to another gorgeous color palette from Color My Heart! This week's challenge colours include:
These colours are featured in the CTMH Claire paper pack, which I just happened to purchase, making it VERY easy to create a set of notecards for my sister's birthday next month.
Here's the complete set; I made two of each:
I admit to using some sketches (and one outright COPY, never mind CASE!) for the card designs.
The first one is a variation on a card created by Jennifer McGuire for the Online Card Classes' Pattern Play. Rounding the opposite corners of simple paper rectangles gives them such an organic look! This card features stamps from the set included in the Claire Workshop-on-the-Go, and some pink and red sparkle gems.
This second card is taken directly from the Spring & Summer Idea book (CTMH catalogue). Lots of ink and sand-paper distressing result in a softer look. The sentiment stamps are from Paper Smooches' Good Gab. Love the funky font!
The third card uses an older "Deconstructed sketch" from Jen Schults:
I was able to use the Hollyhock zipper trim for the scalloped element on this design. I used Liquid Glass to glue it down and some Fray-check on the cut edges to prevent it from unravelling.
The current sketch at CAS(E) this sketch was used for the final card. I'll be linking this one up to CTS #21:
I used a notebook die and coordinating stamp from Lil'Inker for the sentiment block and letters cut using the font from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. The fun chevron-striped ribbon in Outdoor Denim lent itself very well for the vertical flag on the sketch.
