The colors of yum


Oh yes, that's what I think about the color combination and photos at the CR84FN Color Challenge blog this week...kraft, yellow, and gray!  Fresh and fun and YUM!!


I have been trying my hand at some CAS cards lately, but they always end up taking me so long to make!!  For this card, I used October Afternoon patterned paper to piece the apple and pear from the Walzingmouse set, Peace and Plenty.  Also used the cane print from the new set Heirloom Patterns for the border.  See the twine...that's my one gray piece!  It's Divine Twine in the color "oyster".  The sentiment is from Dainty Doilies-Large set, and stamped on a Tiny Tag die cut from PTI.


To add a little more oomph, I ran a piece of PTI's Linen Vellum cardstock through my cuttlebug with the polka dot impression plate from A Muse Studio.  The paper is white, but there is yellow behind it on the base.  Kind of gave a glowy effect!

I will definitely try this color combination again, it's so fresh and fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Peace and Plenty, Heirloom Patterns, sentiment from Dainty Doilies-Large set, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI white, Linen Vellum, Kraft, Vintage Cream, Lemon Tart, October Afternoon patterned papers
Ink:  PTI Kraft and Fresh Snow, Copic markers
Other:  PTI Tiny Tags die, Divine Twine in Oyster, polka dot impression plate from A Muse Studio

Love the cane print on this card Kelly. I couldn't imagine how to add gray to this color combo, so the twine was a great choice, very subtle. Those pieces of fruit look great cut from patterned paper. You do CAS very well.

Yum is so right! Who, but you would remember to put that perfect accent of twine on the stem of the delectable spotty pear? And a Golden Delicious Gingham apple would only grow in your orchard. This just sings Kelly in your trademark fabulous way. Bliss.
