Have you been playing along with Cute Card Thursday? I have been having a blast as guest designer this month with them and this week we have a great challenge for you:
Tie It Up!
I had a lot of ideas for this theme and I really wanted to do one that involved lacing. Somehow, though, my lacing turned into a few stitches. But I really did get my needle out and was sewing through my card!
I tried adding a bow to the card but I just couldn’t make it work without it feeling too over the top. So I reminded myself that keeping it sweet and simple can be exactly the right way to go sometimes.
For those of you who are Stampin’ Up! fans, this is your chance to get a peek at all 5 of the new In Colors that will be coming out in June. I finally started playing with my new papers and love how pretty they look when you mix them together. Almost a pastel without being too faded or “baby”.
I have to admit, I’m kind of digging the Crisp Canteloupe (orange) and Pistachio Pudding (green) the most right now… though a lot of people are big fans of the Strawberry Slush (pink). And then there is the Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar.
So, get inspired and try out something new! If you have an idea for the “Tie it up!” theme – head on over to Cute Card Thursday and submit your fabulous creations for their challenge!
