Today is the day to reveal another great color combo from the Color Throwdown girls! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s chosen a vibrant and fun palette!
Love that patchwork heart! So much so that I had to try and recreate my own!
I did it by cutting varying widths of patterned papers and adhering them to a piece of black cardstock. Then I cut strips in the opposite direction and then adhered those onto another piece of black cardstock.
Shortly after taking this photo, I totally annihilated my Grand Calibur by trying to run the patchwork heart through it. It was stuck in the machine. Big time. I disassembled it and still could not get my plates and patchwork heart out. George ending up having to cut the thing with a hacksaw to get the plates out. So my patchwork heart and the die were saved, but my Grand Calibur is nothing but little pieces of plastic and metal now. Time to look for a new machine and I’m gladly taking suggestions! So bring them on!
Anyway…..here’s my finished card:
I really like how it turned out! Good thing after all the trouble I went through to get it done, huh?!!
My card was also created for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #11 - Love theme.
And my layout was taken from this week’s Deconstructed Sketch #185.
Please come and play along with us this week! You know you want to use these fun colors! And be sure to check out the awesome creations from our fabulous design team!
Thank you so much for dropping in today! I hope you have a wonderful week. And don’t forget to give me your suggestions for a new die cutting/embossing machine! I’d appreciate it!
