ColourQ and thought I would never have put these colors together normally so, I should definitely give it a try! This new SU! owl punch has been calling my name & I thought these would be GREAT "owl colors" ;) Pretty self explanantory card, everything is SU! except for the buttons and metal flowers. The metal flowers are making memories and the buttons are;green-Hobby Lobby, purple: Hot Spot at Archivers. The branches are made with the SU! bird punch.
Thanks for checking out my card! :) I hope you have a STELLAR week! :)Noelle

Here is the link to Moxie Fab. The challenge is to use pleats in an innovative way. I started on this idea on a previous post here. I was thinking that the pleated ribbon underneath the large scallop reminded me of women's clothing in the 1800's when they used to wear petticoats. Back in my theater days we had to wear petticoats and corsets when we did period acting. I will tell you those corsets are really uncomfortable! No wonder women fainted on a regular basis! I'm glad to live in modern times where jeans and t-shirts are acceptable clothing for women:) However, there is something unmistakebly feminine about a ruffly petticoat, so that was my jumping off point.
I hope you like it too! Have a great day!! -Noelle
Hi all! Well, I thought I was done with this challenge for the week, and then while cleaning up last night, I came across this patterned paper in my scrap bin that reminded me SO much of the stamp that Muse Barbara Anders used in her inspiration card. Here is the link to CASE study so you can see. Her card is so simple and lovely, I thought- "what the hey, why not make another one?" (besides, I fully admit, that my first attempt might have been a wee bit "out there" lol;) This layout is pretty and simple. One could easily make a stack of these to give away pretty quickly, particularly if you used premade paper flowers, like I did here. Ok, so obviously I used the paper as my "jumping off point." I grabbed the bolder colors from the paper itself. I deided to carry the patterned panel all the way through to the bottom & I used a rub-on for my sentiment instead of a stamp. I also picked up on the flower with the text on it. You can see that 2 of the flowers I used in my layered embellishment have script on them. I was giving my card a more funky and less antique feel, and I think the rub-on font and the funky chipboard button add to that look.
Supply list: patterned paper: K & Company??, solid cardstock:SU! (Taken with Teal and Old Olive), paper flowers;Prima and Hero Arts, ribbon: My Favorite Things, rub-on:SU!, chipboard button: love, elsie.
I'll be back in a bit with some more fun challenges-see you soon! -Noelle
