Kim Padan: Pro-Life Speaker

Friday, January 20, 2012

Hello and Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge!! Today Rita has a fun color challenge that is perfect for the upcoming holiday... Valentine's Day...combined with a great technique.
  1. Make a project using Paper Piercing
  2. Make a project using the colors Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, and Early Espresso
  3. Or Mash it Up...and make a project using Paper Piercing and the color combo

I made a card using the color combo, but COMPLETELY forgot the paper piercing! Good thing the Mash Up is optional...LOL!! Frankly, I am lousy at paper piercing, so maybe my subconscience was just dreading it too much! Any is my card:

I started with a Blushing Bride card this color!...with a strip of early espresso quilted ribbon wrapped around the front. The panel on the left is very vanilla, with punched out hearts embedded with the square lattice impressions folder in my beloved Big Shot. I used my regular heart punch, as well as the Heart to Heart punch to get the different sizes. I used the pattern paper stacks for the early espresso hearts as well as the scallop trim borders. The whole layer is popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen, stamped in riding hood red on very vanilla, and punched out with the decorative label punch, and layered over a touch of riding hood red. More dimensionals make this a plump cards. I like plump cards...they match me! LOL!
Be sure to check out the great creations from the rest of the design team over at the Friday Mashup blog . Use keyword FM42 in your online gallery. Can't wait to see what you create!!

  2. Such a perfect Valentine, Kim! I love that embedded hearts. I managed to do some crooked piercing, so don't feel bad about not liking it. I can't figure out how it ends up so wonky when I use the template!
