This week Suzanne issued a color challenge for the Try It Out Tuesday teama over on the store blog for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Designs and it just happened to be my FAVES! pink, sage/moss green & cream/white – oh deeLISH!

i used this week’s OCCC sketch (altered a bit) for my card.

my patterned paper is from Porcelain by Basic Grey and Susana has it in the 6×6 pad which i LOVE – makes me feel less bad about needing ALL of them! for the 2 smaller panels i played a bit with some smooch spritz and tissue paper. i lightly sprayed the tissue paper with limoliscious and pink sprinkle from the latest color release. once dry i crumpled it really good. next i covered two pieces of cardstock with adhesive using a zyron and then i opened the tissue pper up but did not smooth out the wrinkles completely. i laid it on top of the adhesive on the cardstock and then pressed it down so the wrinkles stayed somewhat like silk. i used the paper lace technique with my martha stewart punch for the cream strip. i used a plain white prima flower that i jazzed up a bit with some Tutu Pink Inspirations Paint – i loaded my brush with water and then dipped it into the paint and mixed it around on my craft sheet and then brushed it onto the flower lightly to catch the raised portions. then i painted it on straight for the center flower. the little green branch pieces are from my cricut. finally i added the gorgeous glossy pearls with my viva decor paper pens in Lime Green & Rose.

my main image is a SUPER DUPER cutie from the recent Elisabeth Bell release – “bunnie” – what a sweetie right? i stamped her with memento black & colored her with Copics. Her ribbon and lace edges are painted with Fairy Dust Inspirations Paint. i added a bit of Sweet Pea Flower Soft to the flowers along the handle of her basket.

i hope you enjoyed today’s project! now head on over and check out the rest of the team’s projects too! 


Have wonderful week!

  1. What is “the paper lace technique using Martha Stewart’s punch”? Which punch did you use & how did you do it? The punching is unfamiliar to me.

    Winter storm yet again in the Charlotte, NC area. Not sure how much, if any, snow & ice. Depends on the temperature which is now close to 32. Snow just starting to show on the ground & more precipt expected though the night with colder temps. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
