I Smell a Birthday - CD #544 "Triple Play"

Here is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #544 "Triple Play" combined with the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #601 with optional twist to use pastel colors.  The only pastel in this color challenge was pink so I used that to border each panel and the flowers.  


I was determined to use the Stamp of the Month "Little Stinkers" as a sneak peek for the month of May. Decided to stamp and mask one of the stinkers on the tree stump, added florals and leaves to each side to take on the edge of the circle image in the sketch, colored with copic sketch pens and cut frame using a circular decorative edge.  

Could not find patterned papers using these colors so resorted to cardstock for my two panels and backed them both with a little pink.  Cut another circular frame and off set the one with the image to pull in a little more pink. Used a gelly roll white pen to hightlight the eyes and dotted the centers of each flower. Had thought about stamping something on the rosemary cardstock but I was happy with the clean look. Finished it off with a stitched arrow adhered with 3D thin foam tape to finish the similarity of the sketch.  

On the inside of the card stamped a few florals and leaves in the bottom right-hand corner.  

This 2nd card was my experimental masking and color choices for the ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #544 "Triple Play". Rather than throw in my stash I decided to use this with another sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #520. The Harbour and Rosemary cardstock were both adhered to Peach for a border, cut a square in a Mix-Up design paper for the square and cut the scalloped frame around my image. Ferns were cut using Harbour and Rosemary cardstock to place around the image. 

On the inside flowers were stamped and colored along the right-hand side border.

Suzanne, BOTH of your cards are so super cute, but of course I REALLY like the first one which you created using Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch AND our optional challenge of pastel colors! Your use of offset circular frames is quite clever!! Thank you so much for sharing your cards and creative talent with us at TSOT!!! -Donna

Wonderful cards. A skunk should not be this adorable!! Love the offset circles and great use of color for the sketch. Thank you so much for sharing at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

Super cute image for the colors. I love seeing a peek to the inside of your card too. It is great seeing how others decorate the inside of their cards.

Vandra said...

Both of your cards are so stinkin' cute for our Colour Dare challenge. I love your second one using that Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge the most, I love the foliage... but they're both great!

Stinking cute - pun intended. Love how you finished off the inside of the card too. Thanks for playing over at TSOT.

So "stinkin' cute"! I really like the way you masked that little "stinker" behind the flowers on the tree stump. The color choice for the foliage was great too, not taking away from the pretty pink and the little "stinker". Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Both of these cards are just too cute! I especially love the birthday card- I adore a good pun.

Donna Ellis said...

LOL!!!!! EXTRA CUTE! I love that sentiment "I smell a birthday" - totally took me off guard, Suzanne. Your color theme is perfect with your black and white little critter, and great visual interest with the arrow. Both cards are darling. They were obviously made with great love!
