Mixed & Matched

It's Mix & Match day at 
PINK PAISLEE
 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!
