colourQ challenge #142

This weeks colourQ palette was inspired by a cute geometric purse that I would love to have.  It seems that you don't ever have a "Welcome to the Neighborhood" card on hand when you need it.  I translated the colours to PTI as Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist and Blueberry Sky.  I added my sentiment first and then placed each of the colours behind the window panes of the die cut window.  The frame was popped up with foam dots.  I can't seem to make a card these days without dimension.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Blueberry Sky
Stamps: Home Made
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Grand Maison Window (Poppystamps)
Other:  foam dots

The summer issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today was released yesterday.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with SCT it is a Canadian magazine that is publish four times a year.  It is a free publication available at scrapbook stores.  You can also get a subscription to have it mailed to you or you can read in PDF here for free.  Love love love this magazine.  Great ideas and a great blog as well.

Great take on the challenge. I would like to have that purse, too. Color blocking is such a great technique, and I always forget about it.

I love the clean lines of this Tracey and the coloured 'panes' are brilliant. I'm also a big fan of SCT.

Love this - what a great idea! 3-D foam tape is a basic for me now - no longer optional, lol!

Love the color blocked window. Great use of the PTI colors too.

Tracey, what a great card! Love the design! I can't make anything with dimension either - which is why mu albums are so fat. Thanks for joining us at ColourQ this week. See you soon!

Great take on the photo Tracey. Love the color window and the dimension. Thank for sharing the link to the magazine.

LeAnne said...

This is beautiful! I don't have any neighbors or do I live in a neighborhood, so I rarely need one of these, but I wish I did! I just LOVE that die....so many possibilities!
