The Color Theory papers and I are getting along like a house afire... I've always been a monochromatic/ombre tones fan, and I just can't get enough of these patterns! You all can order them beginning June 1st, 2017, at my online Stampin' Up store.
Today I turned my attention to the Dapper Denim papers in the stack. I had used up all the ombre and ombre striped ones making these beach cards I shared earlier, so I focused on the paint swatch ones for this craft session. If you remember, I did a whole post about the Old Olive paint swatch papers last week. I was anxious to know if there were EVEN MORE things to do with it. There are!
These two cards use the "wave" layout to cut apart a 3 x 5.5 strip into two undulating wave-edged pieces, with a single wavy scissor cut down the middle. You can then use the strips together on one card like this rainbow Color Wave Card, or you can use the two pieces on two separate cards like I did here.
I asked the Song of My Heart fans on Facebook if they liked this card better with or without the flowers. Most agreed that "without" was great for masculine cards, but "with" made it a real WOW! What do you think?
The paint swatch patterned papers make these cards so easy it almost feels like cheating! Do you ever feel that way when you have a particularly gorgeous piece of paper or a certain intricate die-cut? But there's nothing wrong with saving a little time with some convenience items, especially if it helps you get more cards in the mail!
I did have some other good news to share today besides just these fun projects you'll be able to make when your own Color Theory pack arrives. What I had feared was a rotator cuff injury has been finally diagnosed as "frozen shoulder," and the prognosis is great with just physical therapy. I was so worried that I was making it worse by moving it, when moving it is the best thing I CAN do for it. So that was great news and a big relief to hear.
Thanks for all the well-wishes! And thanks for dropping in to see what I've been up to! PSssst: did your new catalog come yet? They should have all arrived by now! Let me know if you didn't get one and I'll pop one in the mail ASAP so you have it for June 1st. I'm so excited!!!
