Summer Card Camp Week 1

Summer Card Camp began today! Our week 1 color combo is definitely out of my comfort zone! Check it out:

I think the purple threw me off the most. I'm not a huge purple fan. But luckily, I did get the new Damask Designs patterned paper in the latest PTI release, and it includes a Royal Velvet pattern (I think I just might even buy a package of the cardstock in my next order.... gasp... did I just say that?). :) So I pulled out a sheet of that, long with some Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Spring Rain and White. Here's what I ended up with:



I used Polka Dot Basics 2 to add the fun dot pattern to the orange. The sentiment is from Gracious Vases, the circle tag is from Birthday Tags and the cake is from Tiny Treats: Birthday. Dies used are Doily Details, banner, and Edgers #1. The banner and tag are popped up on dimensional adhesive. I added some stitching (I'm trying to do that more often!) and gems to finish things off.


I can't wait to see whats in store for tomorrow! I've already pulled some papers to try this color combo again. Thanks for looking!

I love it! I struggled with the pink and orange but was pleased with how it turned out. This is gorgeous! I so love your stitching. That is something I do NOT do well.

Love the dies and background that you used!

Love your card, Debbie. I like how rich in color it is..very pretty..and I keep forgetting to get those Edgers! That looks awesome.

Great job, Debbie! I really struggled with this color combo, too, but I guess that's what it's all about, right? Your card turned out great! The Damask PP was the perfect addition. (By the way, Royal Velvet is FAB!)

Recognized your name from the Forum so thought I'd check out your creation. I really like it but can understand the difficulty of the color challenge. It was a bit out of my comfort zone too, but that's why I'm thrilled to have won a spot in this class.

Ooooh, lovely!!! I love how you managed to tie it all together - one color isn't just "stuck on there" for the sake of completing the given scheme.

And, I also **love** your MIM card. The blue ink on white, with the balloons? Brilliant!

Debbie.......I think you did awesome for not having purple as your favorite color. I think the hardest color for me to tie in was the blue......I love blue, but I just struggled making it work with the others. I think this class is definitely going to push us.....in a good way! Great job, again!

Amy Beth said...

Debbie, This is beautiful. I love all the details!

Ginny said...

I think you did a great job with this card, love all details and that damask paper, I may have to add that to my wishlist... :)

Holy Hannah! What a card! Love the colors and how fabulous and fierce they are combined in your capable hands. Love the layering of the Edgers especially. Fab job!
