Pinterest is my favorite Black Hole on the internet – I have spent hours there looking at anything and everything. Our new tour features a Pin-Worthy theme every month and we are starting off with a flourish on the theme of True Love – or as our fearless leader Jan puts it, “Lovey-Dovey”.
Our Crumb Cake note-card sized envelopes have been on my desk lately – I’m SUPPOSED to be making (and sending!) thank-you notes! The new Retro Fresh DSP (that’s Designer Series Paper to the uninitiated) paper pack has Crumb Cake in its color palette, so it seemed a natural pairing:
- Stamps: Yippee Skippee, Petite Petals
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana
- DSP: Fresh Prints
- Accessories: Deco Labels Framelites, Petite Petal Punch, Dimensionals, Rhinestones
I was inspired by this sketch – it’s this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch – so I made a second card with it using the same color palette:
Out with Real Red and in with Pool Party and Baked Brown Sugar. A minor change like that makes a major difference, don’t you think? This is still Retro Fresh DSP. Piercing seems to be out of trend right now, but I’ve always loved how it adds texture and design without adding color, so I pulled out my Piercing Tool (aka Pokie Doodle) and the guide. It also reflects the little dots on the DSP (really, I planned it that way.)
Hope you like this Inaugural post for the PinWorthy Tour! Your next stop is Audra Monk at the Crafty Yogi – I’m sure you’ll enjoy her projects.
