Reader's Choice Color Inspiration Challenge #3

It's time for another CI challenge over at Kristina Werner's blog. I knew I would be taking part in this challenge because I LOVE this color combo. This was my sister's wedding combo a few years back!! Then I started creating...and I have four projects to share using this combo. I am pretty sure I have another one in me using some old Making Memories paper...but I had to cut myself off at four. I figured that was enough...for now I suppose. Once I get a project idea in my mind I've got to get it don't be suprised if another project using this combo comes soon. Anyway, on to the projects I did make.  Oh, and I'll have supply lists at the end of the post for all four projects.

The first is a notepad inspired by Michelle Wooderson. I love the Papertrey Ink notepads, and at $6 for 10 it's a great deal, especially if you're a list maker like me. I have a bunch of notepads already covered, and a supply over notepads waiting for their special cover. This has to be one of my favorite PTI sets!!

I used two of Papertey's Vintage cream notepads (they have Dark Chocolate perfect). I took the cardboard backer off of the top notepad and attached it to the bottom pad with some score tape and a small strip of vintage cream cardstock (pretty much the way Nichole Heady explains here). Then I just cut my cardstock to size and decorated the cover. I had colored the butterflies a while ago with some Copics, and thought they went perfectly.

Then I moved onto a few cards...because I couldn't stop once I got started. Here's the first one I made...and I think it's my favorite of the bunch.

Made this card using another of my favorite PTI sets, A Little Argyle. I am loving how this one turned out. I used some fun cabbage rose ribbon and my Copics again (to color those little flowers). While this was a bit time consuming (stamping those diamonds individually) once I get going, it comes together pretty quickly. Love how this one turned out...just like I saw it in my mind!!

And then, I made this one...

I used my Hero Art's Hydrangea stamp, Copics, and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the shipping tag. Paired up with an elegant sentiment from PTI's Damask Designs, and I've got a very versatile card for any occasion.

And it didn't end's the last one I put together.

It's a very simple card compared to the other's, but I just couldn't wait to break out my Fancy Flourish PTI stamp set that I just received with my latest order. Again, very simple, but I think it's elegant too.

Thanks for stopping by!
