Papertrey September Blog Hop







Today, I am playing along with Papertrey's September Blog HopWe were challenged to make a card based on this inspiration photo.  I have to say that I was stumped at first, as I didn't really even like the picture (I can say that, because this is my blog!).  But, then I thought about what I saw, which was:  colors (black, aqua mist, yellow and red), simple, linear and graphic pattern, and a door.  Here is my card:



I used one of my favorite stamps from Background Basics Retro to stamp something linear in the colors I saw in the photo.  Very simple.  I interpreted the door as a greeting, and used part of one of the Think Big Favorites to stamp 'hello'.

Thanks for Visiting

  13. I didn't like the picture either, but you sure made a great card based on it's colors and those geometric elements. The sentiment is fun and I like your card way better than I like that pic!

  20. EEk! This is adorable. I love the stripes at the bottom. very cool..and retro looking.

    As for the dies - it took my several tries to get them to work. I finally (and I have a Cuttlebug) ended up using the b and c plates plus 2 sheets of patterned paper and running it through about 4 times...a pain, yes, but it did work! :)

  22. I love the way you used this stamp to create a very colourful but subtle striped effect. The thin lines and circles are so cool looking.
