No – its ok, you have come to the right place. Some people get inspired by glossy magazines with articles about beautiful rooms and great designs but me, I was inspired by Her Majesty! I was having my first caffeine fix on Saturday morning watching the TV when the Queen drove down The Mall on her way to the Trouping of the Colour and I thought “those colours on that hat go really well together”.
Lavender Moon, Spring Moss and Berry Sorbet are not colours I’d normally put together but I thought if they were good enought for a royal hat, surely they’d look ok on a card. I went with a round and a square card for this project using all Papertrey products in the corresponding colours.
I used the same colour ways for both cards using a mix of patterned papers and cardstock. I added in a hand cut label on the round one and a Spellbinders tag on the square. A few buttons and trim and they were done!
Supplies: Stamps – Round & Round, Autumn Abundance; Cardstock – Lavender Moon, Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet; Paper – Pretty Pastels, Bitty Dots, In Bloom, Bitty Box; Accessories – Butterfly die, Spellbinder labels, vintage buttons, ribbon, pearls.
I love to use Papertrey’s designer papers and recently split several pads with a friend in the US. So to share the paper love around I thought we could have a little challenge! Round cards are a favourite of mine and I could use some more inspiration – so how about you make a round card using at least one Papertrey Ink product and post it to the linky thingy below. You have 2 weeks to enter and we will draw a winner on Thursday 8th July! Entries are welcome from all corners of the world and the prize can be shipped anywhere!
Please do have a go – you could be the lucky recipient of these 30 sheets of Papertrey DPs!
