You're a Star


This week's Color Me Monday combo (Crystal Blue, Garden Green, Outdoor Denim and Twilight...all CTMH colors) over at Jeanette Lynton's blog is a great one! I love the masculine feel of this mix. I also really liked the sketch this week at Card Patterns. I combined the two and this is what I came up with.

Wondering how I got all of those colors on that star? Well, I did a little paper piecing. I stamped my star in all 4 colors (garden green, outdoor denim, twilight and crystal blue). I used the garden green star as my base and then cut out pieces of each of the others and glued them on. Easy, peasy, lemon squeasy! I really like the look.

I ran a little challenge for my team with Close To My Heart this week (my team is called The Pacemakers because we keep 'The Heart' pumpin'!). I challenged them to use the Color Me Monday color combo on a piece of art they create this week and email me a photo. I will be judging what they send and the winner will receive this card..the one I made with the CMM combo. I can't wait to see what everyone creates! By the way, if you are interested in becoming part of my team, I am more than happy to answer any questions you have. Just email me at pedermom@aol.com.

I'm not sure that this card qualifies for Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Love the outdoor denim distressing around the card. So much attention to detail!

I love this card Karen! I love paper piecing (much to the dismay of my card workshop attendees, lol) and can you belive I've never inked up that stamp set? Shame on me. I think I'm going to have to play with this one a bit over the weekend. Have a great day!

OMG - Karen! This is one gorgeous card! Personally, I love it all - the color combo - it is my all time favorite, the paper piecing and the stamp set!! I have to agree with Melissa... not so easy peasy lemon squeezy for those who are vision challenged! :^) Very nice job!! Thank you for sharing!! Hugs....
