So very Charming


The February Stampin’ Success magazine had an article about combining purple and yellow.  It’s a bold combination that I’ve always loved, though I tend to mute one hue or the other.   I also tend towards monochromatic color schemes, so it was easy to start with Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst.

Charming in purples and yellows

  • Charming, Bella Toile and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
  • Very Vanilla, Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac card stock
  • Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst and So Saffron Classic Ink pads
  • Styled Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware, Piercing tool and template, small oval punch
  • Paper snips, So Saffron 5/8″ Grosgrain (last year’s SAB) and Stampin’ Dimensionals

I started defining the Lovely Lilac panel with scoring, but it was just too subtle.  If you know me at all, you know I’m not subtle.  Nope.  I wanted to line up my piercing template with the scored lines, and by using my Grid Paper, I was able to do a pretty successful job of it.  And yes, I did go a little over-the-top on the trimming of the floral spray.  It was just one of those things that had to be done.  Good thing I had a nice sharp pair of snips!
