WPlus9 Color Cue #15

May 14, 2011

Hey there, everyone!  Two posts on a Saturday...crazy huh!  Well, my blog runs on Mountain time and this just kind-of happens when you have posts that need to run at midnight Eastern time.  Tee hee!

Tonight marks the latest WPlus9 Color Cue challenge #15.  Without further ado, here is the color graphic:
Aren't these super fun colors?!  I love this one, and it was actually really fun to add the little bit of yellow into my card.  It might seem a little intimidating, but I do suggest you try it out!  You might just LOVE what you come up with!

I used The Sweet Shop Sketch #108 to help out with the design, flipping it on its side so it would work for me.  I also created it for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #2 to use buttons & twine.  This is an almost brand new CAS challenge blog, and it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun!!  Here is what I created!
"Congrats" supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft) 
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Mary Mary: Berry Preserves & Whirlybird: Perfect Plaid)
Stamps/Die: WPlus9 (Filigreed Frames & Label Layers 1)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: frost white, magenta) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Ribbon: American Crafts (rose) & Renaissance by Design (yellow) 
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Buttons: Papertrey Ink (blue) & craft supply (yellow)
Flower: Recollections
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold kraft cardstock in half to make card base.  Layer together the dotted & plaid paper blocks, then diecut the label from the center.  Lay the piece on the card front, stamp the label outline so it fits inside the diecut window, and then stamp the sentiment in the middle of it.  Adhere rose ribbon along the top of diecut window.  Tie a bow from yellow ribbon, adhere a blue button to the middle using twine, and adhere to the middle of the rose ribbon.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card using foam adhesive.  Thread two yellow buttons with twine, then adhere along with a blue flower in a cluster to the lower left corner. 

Make sure you check out what the other WPlus9 girl's have come up with!  It is sure to be delightful!!
