Colourful Mashup

I am enjoying my final couple of days of holidays before heading back to work tomorrow and while I haven't been as busy at the craft desk as I was hoping I have achieved a lot around the house and did get chance to join in with the Colour Q and Friday Mashup Challenges.

Colour Q this week was to pick one of the 2012 colour combos that a member of the Design Team had chosen, there are some lovely ones to choose from but the one Yapha used with Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake and White. I love how these colours look together, and I had fun deciding how I would use them on the sketch and incorporate some hearts.  You can see the new Sale-A-Bration Pretty Petites set used again here for the outline on the vertical banner, the hearts in the centre were stamped using the little heart from the Create a Cupcake set stamped and then stamped off for alternate hearts. 

I think this card takes the lead in most number of stamp sets and tools used, see if you can spot them all ...

  • Bitty Banners Framelits - on the sentiment
  • Fashionable Hearts Embosslits - for the two hearts
  • Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit - I ran the two hearts through this embosslit to get the embossed hearts on them
  • 1" Square Punch - for the end of the vertical banner
  • Stamp-A-Ma-Jig - for lining up the frames and hearts
  • Pearls
  • Elegant Butterfly Punch
  • Papillon Potpourri
  • Creative Elements
  • Short and Sweet
  • Pretty Petites
  • Create a Cupcake
I also used my Paper Trimmer, Snips, SNAIL and Bone Folder, and I think for such a simple layout that isn't bad! I was about to hit the publish button and realised I didn't mention my embossing powder and heat tool!!!

Happy Stamping
