Today’s color combo for the challenge was: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Apricot Appeal and optional Green Galore. I really liked yesterday’s idea of warm up cards, so I made another one.


As soon as I read the color combo, I knew I would be using some of the Palette O’ Prints designer paper (POP). Two of the four colors in the paper pack are rose red and apricot appeal. If you haven’t gotten a pack yet, it’s so worth the $9.95. Talk to your demonstrator. It’s a great deal.

I started with a 3″x 6″ piece of Tempting Turquoise folded in half. For these small cards I like it better when the opening of the card is on the bottom instead of the right side.

I cut a piece of the tiny dotted Rose Red POP and added a 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ piece of black cardstock over it. I punched the two bottom corners of the POP with the ticket corner punch and tape it to the card. I punched a Giga Scallop Square out of Apricot Appeal cardstock and taped it down on more too the right. On the left of the square I added two Apricot Appeal brads. I cut a 1 9/16″ square of black cardstock and taped it on top of my scallop square. Next I cut a 1  1/2″ square out of shimmery white.

So far it took me no time at all. Now I had to find an image that would go with the colors and the size of the card. Usually I start with picking the stamp set before getting the layout of the card done. It was weird doing it backwards. I finally took my A Muse Art stamps out and found this cute Doggie bag (2-7110E). I stamped it with black Palette ink and colored the image except for the purse with Classic Ink (Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Rose Red and Tempting Turquoise) and Aqua Painter. Next I stamped skinny oval bl sm (3-5012C) in Sahara Sand under the purse.

I stamped the Doggie Bag again on the same background paper I used for the bottom of the card. I cut the bag pieces out and taped them over my main image to turn the little purse in a polka dotted rose purse.

Under the image I stamped Sweet Friend with stamps from the Everyday Flexible Phrases set. I added a Shimmery White and Apricot Appeal flower punchout from the Spring Flower punch. I sponged the edges of the Apricot Appeal flower with Apricot Appeal Classic ink on taped it on to the white flower. Lastly I added a black brad in the center and taped the flower down with a dimensional.
