Banners for Friday Mashup

It's time for another Friday Mashup! Tara is bringing us the challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us, plus she wants to see some 3D paper piecing.

The colors are Primrose Petals, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Soft Sky. I grabbed the SAB set Banner Blast and stamped the banners in every color but Soft Sky because, well, I forgot all about Soft Sky! I ended up stamping a sentiment and hearts inside the card with Soft Sky to get that color in (and I forgot to get a picture of it but I promise you, I did do it!).

I will be completely honest and admit that I did not do the 3D paper piecing part of the challenge. I had originally grabbed the stamp People Like You and attempted it with the flowers and it was miserable for me. I ended up throwing it all away and just did the color portion of the mashup. Sorry Tara!

Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to check out the great projects from the rest of the DT(who apparently had no issues with the 3D stuff like I did, LOL. Leave it to me to be different!).

  1. Create a project with "Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Soft Sky & Marina Mist."
  2. Create a project using "3-D Paper Piecing"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "3-D Paper Piecing Project with the above Colors."

Stamps: Banner Blast, Loving Thoughts (inside sentiment, not shown)

  1. Lisa, I too struggled with the paper peicing, you are not alone!
    I think you card is great! You made the colors work very well together, and I think putting soft sky on the inside of your card is a great solution!

  2. Oh Lisa, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the paper piecing! Your card came out gorgeous though - I love those banners.

  3. Gorgeous, I love it!

  4. Lovely banners across a great embossed background, Lisa. You rocked the colors!
