I have a confession to make. I did not purchase Dream Pop paper. Saw lovely things done with it. Think it's very fun and summery. Just didn't purchase any because...well...I didn't need it. And I only purchase things I need. Really...NEED. Ha!
One of the great things about being on a Design Team is that your DT buddies come to your rescue in times like these. Kudos to the lovely and talented Amie Kiger for sending me some 4.25x5.5 pieces so I could bring you this weeks' Color My Heart challenge.
I fussy cut the flower out of the Dream Pop paper, used a bone folder to score the petals, then bent them in an alternating fashion. I put a small circle "bubble" (probably from Michaels) in the center. This allowed me to have at least a small surface area to adhere to the card base. The yellow birdcage paper is also from Dream Pop.
I used the Slate ribbon from CTMH and folded it in thirds using a tape runner to adhere the layers together. I taped the edges around the center panel then stapled the bejeebers out of it. No fancy stapler, just a regular one which is why the very center staple under the flower is horizontal. Too bad you can't see it.
I'm into yellow and gray lately...and staples. Not sure why, just am.
Here's a second card I whipped up this morning which also works for the following challenges:
CAS(E) This Sketch #30
CAS-ual Fridays #103
Pinspired Challenges #10
Color Throwdown #244
Before I go, I have to give a second shout out to another DT buddy, Pam Korte, who also offered to send me Dream Pop paper. Especially after I raved over this post! Since then, she's done a bunch more. Go...see...be inspired. You might just need this paper!
Until next time,
