Flowering Fields for Pals Paper Arts PPA284

Over a Pals Paper Arts Maggie Mata has a great design for us to play along with.  This was a fun sketch to work with!!! All the Pals on the design team did a great job sharing inspiration for us!  So, be sure to hop over to Pals Paper Arts!

PPA-284-Jan21

 

When I started working on this card, I decided to use two papers from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.

I pared them with the Flowering Fields stamp set.  Also, from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  If you are wondering what Sale-A-Bration is all about.  Well, it is simple! If you spend $50 you get to pick one item from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure for free!!!! Did you here me FREE!!!

I wanted to keep thing’s simple and stay somewhat true to the design.  I did though decide to flip the triangle on its head.  When I finished the card it still needed a little something.  I had been toying with the idea of a sentiment but, could not really find the right spot.   I sent a few pictures to a friend during the process.  And they suggested a banner.  The banner really brought the whole card together.  It is always nice to have someone you can bounce ideas around with!

I really liked the results of the original card.  But, when I compare it to the one with the banner…WOW!!! What a difference one little element can make :>  IMAG2748

The flower and the “Happy Birthday” are stamped in Basic Gray.  This ties in the background paper!  True Confession time…I have been using Basic Gray a whole lot lately.  And , I would never have picked it up other than I lost my Basic Black ink…So for now I am stuck with Basic Gray!!!!  I am really enjoying the Basic Gray! It just might have won me over :> Well, maybe…. And I really like the combination of the gray and black mixed with white!

Here are a few tips:

  1. Don’t be afraid to mix black with gray!  Done right it will look so sophisticated!!!
  2. The ovals were easy to cut with the oval collection framelits dies and my big shot!
  3.  Using the Triple Banner Punch made making the banner a breeze!!!!  By sticking the banner out the back of the punch it was supper easy to line up…see picture…
