PDCC #47

Hello, friends:}


I am so excited to share another color story for The Play Date Cafe! Just love love love this challenge! So fun to see what colors Sarah and Julie put together. This week Sarah put together red, teal, leaf green, and black/white. OHHHH! Such fun colors!


And this week our sponsor is Paperbag Studios. The owner, Roben-Marie, is our fabulous fabulous Guest Designer this week! Paperbag Studios features a collection of rubber stamps ranging from children to doodles and houses to shoes and offers a unique mix that appeals to not only the rubber stamper but visual and altered artists alike! The prize this week::: $25 gift certificate to the online store! Let me tell you---these stamps are AMAZING! The PDCC DT were sent a set of stamps to play with--so fun! ThanksRoben-Marie


This week I decided to make a card for a neighbor. I made them a card about four months ago--inviting them to dinner. I made them another card about two months ago wishing them "happy anniversary" for owning their house for a year (also inviting them to dinner).....we have yet to get together! It just happens that our schedules have not matched--but hopefully, after sending them this card we will get together! I used Paperbag Studios stamps--Doodles & Daters [the houses are my favorites]! I just love how beautiful they look! I stamped everything on text paper. After cutting out each piece, I distressed them with inks and then popped them with foam dots. I tied embroidery thread around the heart--and I thought about stitching on the sentiment tag but I couldn't figure out which thread color to use. I love love love how this card turned out:} This is also a great entry for the Paper Crafts Magazine challenge--use text in a different way.
That's all for me today--but don't worry! The PDCC DT members have created some beautiful (BEAUTIFUL) cards and creations with their Paperbag Studios stamps! Be sure to stop by all their blogs and leave them some love!
