Red, White, and Blue Quilt Square on Light Blue

It's always fun to piece some patterns together for a quilt square.  I like the red and blue frames with these red, white, and blue prints.  All the colors work well together in real life.

Straight Lines and Circles on Green with Navy

Today's card started with the patterned paper and the light green card base, then a navy blue square to give the patterned square more definition.  The bright white color and alternating size circles of the border strip added interest and continued the circle motif.  Next I stamped some circle stems, carefully placed within the die shapes, and a sentiment with curves and straight lines in its fonts.  The navy strip behind the white gives a foundation to the focal area.  I like the modern, graphic style and the mix of colors.

 Card details:

  • Card stock is Hero Arts celadon (light green) layering paper and Papertrey Ink (PTI) enchanted evening (dark blue/ navy) and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned paper is from Pink & Main not too spooky 6 x 6" paper pad.
  • Die is PTI simple circles border
  • The circle stem images are from PTI grunge me (retired) and the sentiment "thinking of you" is from PTI take three: spring (retiring), stamped with PTI enchanted evening ink.
