Prettie Tuesday

Today marks my first "official" day as a guest designer for Paper Pretties. Christie Ortman was so kind to ask me to work with her and her fabulous design team, I am so excited!!! You want to know what is even more exciting...my new Paper Pretties stamps(the ones I ordered at the last release party where Christie noticed me) arrived in the mail today, so I got to use them for this card!!! If you haven't been to see their fabulous store, you should check it out NOW!!! This card is also for the color challenge over on SCS. I usually love doing the color challenge, but this one was hard for me. Usually we have three colors to work with plus neutrals, but tonight's challenge has 4 colors!! Super tough!!! I really like what I did with it though!! The base is Creamy Carmel and layered with Mellow Moss and Whisper White. I put a piece of the Pretty in Pink DP from the Prints Pack on the bottom and then created the layered scallop panel using Cameo Coral, PinP and Whisper White. I then tied a piece of pink and moss taffeta around it and added a piece of pink and moss gingham to them. The main image is stamped with Black Stazon and I used my SU markers to color it in. I highlighted the necklace, butterfly and bracelets with my Sakura glitter pen. The oval shadow on the ground is from the Sassy Circles set by Paper Pretties. It is great for grounding images!! I masked the feet on my main image and stamped the oval in Creamy Caramel. I made a boo boo in the bottom corner of my image so I used the spiral clip with some kraft taffeta and caramel gingham on it. The white brads in the bottom corner came with my Paper Pretties order today, which was a good thing, because I used so many making my Easter cards I was out!!! Well, I really need to get to bed, so that is all for me now!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

  15. oh, so this was your *screw up* card, huh! I'm so glad you were delirious and stamping into the wee hours of the morning or else you may not have made this pretty in pink mistake! I ADORE this card and how neat that you came across Mothermarks post and now can send it to someone who really needs it and will cherish it! It was meant to be, I tell ya! And you made another card with the right colors too--absolutely fabulous, Jessie! You are such a sweetheart, always thinking of others! I just wanna hug you!
