Primary Colored Pinwheels
I love this background paper from the Summer Smooches product suite. I love how colorful it is, and how you can pick out just a few colors from it and make a fun, bright card (I used the primary colors: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Pacific Point). I choose this layout from this week's Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I've been using my 2-1/2" circle punch a lot lately--I love how the stamps fill the circle and how the shape really adds to the card. I used my Sweets for the Sweet set for the pinwheels, the Itty Bitty Banners set for the greeting , and the bitty banners framelits to punch out the greeting in my Big Shot. I also used the Big Shot to add the Chevron detail to the Pacific Point card stock--I just LOVE those embossing folders! I added a strip of Daffodil Delight along the designer series paper and I punched it with the scallop edge punch. Finally I added a very thin layer of white card stock and mounted everything on my Daffodil Delight card base. I can't wait to use more of that Summer Smooches designer series paper and pick out different colors and see what look I can achieve. Thanks for visiting!
