Another Purple and Green Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 6:01 pm

Hi Everyone,

For some reason, this has been the weekend for purple and green. So here’s another one with that same color scheme.

Purple and Green Thinking of You

Purple and Green Thinking of You

I used the grass from the Honey Bees stamp set from Papertrey Ink and the flowers were all created using the Blossom punch from SU! and the One of a Kind stamp set. It makes punching out these flowers so easy. I used Lavender Lace, So Saffron and Pale Plum ink to stamp the flowers. I also used Old Olive ink and cardstock, and a ribbon from Michaels.

Later this week, I am going to post some other cards I made using the same stamps, but they look completely different using other color combinations. It’s such an easy card to make, but it turns out so gorgeous.

Enjoy!

Purple/Green Thought Card

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday was a really busy day with the OWH Bloghop. I made it through about 80% of the blogs, and plan on finishing the rest this evening. There were some sites I ended up spending way too much time on, checking out everything they’ve posted recently.

It’s also been so nice to get so many great comments. Thank you to all who took the time to say such nice things.

For some reason, I was in the mood today for a card that was cheerful and elegant, all at the same time. Usually the color combination of purple and green fits that description. I ended making quite a few of these already today–I think about 18 so far. I also love the way the stamps from My Time Made Easy stamp. That’s where the flourish and flowers are from.

I used SU! Old Olive ink and cardstock, and Lavender Lace ink. The sentiment is from SU!’s most recent sentiments, and the ribbon is from Michael’s.

This card turned out so great–I love the purple/red combination. The flourishes are from My Time Made Easy and the purple polka dot paper is from PaperTrey Ink. I printed the sentiment on my computer since I didn’t have a stamp. The red bow is from my stash from Michael’s.

This is the same card using the brown polka dot/red combination. I saw this combination a lot at Christmas time, and thought it makes a nice masculine card.

May Cards

Here’s the first “different” card I did this month. It’s made with a design from “My Time Made Easy” and some pumpkin ink from SU! I think it turned out nice–but it does make me think of fall already.

The flourish and little flowers are from My Time Made Easy, and the sentiment is from SU!s sentiments. The ink is pumpkin from SU! and the ribbon is Martha Stewart. The cardstock is Mellow Moss. I’m going to miss that dark green color–it goes well with so many other colors.
