It's Mix & Match day at
and I have two cards to share combining the
three new collections: Hello Sunshine, Pen Pals & Switchboard
For this card, I selected elements from the Switchboard and Pen Pals collections.
When making cards, I like to use the 6X6 Paper Pads since the designs are at a smaller scale.
The reddish tones in the two collections are different, so I chose to use only pieces from
Switchboard that boasted the color. From there I picked the subtle pink and navy,
which can be found in both lines.
I used two nesting, scrolled dies from Spellbinders to create the layering pieces of patterned paper.
I wanted to tie back in with the Chain Letter Paper (triangular grid) found on the base of the card,
so I die-cut a small oval on which the chipboard phone was attached to. I trimmed off the ‘hello’
from the ‘hello friend’ puffy sticker before adhering. The Pen Pals’ Chipboard Alphabet
letters in tiny banner shapes are a great size for cards!
This next card is a mixture of Pen Pals and Hello Sunshine. As with the first card, I selected
the different papers that held some of the same colors in both collections. Here, I chose the
yellow tones from Hello Sunshine and used only blues from the Pen Pals Collection.
The reds and pinks from both lines match, so I was free to add any of those in from either collection.
I love the diagonal pink/red striped paper from Pen Pals. The lines juxtapose about every inch,
so I used that as my guide for cutting the banner strips of paper, which I attached with foam adhesive.
Again, I focused only on the yellow hue from Hello Sunshine and tried to keep the Pen Pals
colors focused on the red, pink and navy.
Pink Paislee has also shared a glimpse of their new Summer collection: Solstice
Gold foam stickers....yummy!
That's all from me today!
