Getting into shape for Friday Mashup

This week at The Friday Mashup Avery is our hostess and she wants us to get in shape....wait, what? Hahaha, I mean she wants us to make a shaped card! She also wants us to use to the color combo she provided.

I wont lie, the shaped card thing totally threw me and I have been fussing with stuff all week. Thursday I finally pulled out the Heart Framelits (because my daughter suggested using a heart) and went to work. I grabbed the Happy Watercolor set and let's just say that I had about 3 hearts cut out in Whisper White before I finally settled on the final product. I can neither confirm nor deny that some cussing went on during this time period :)

Avery mentioned that these colors are great for Easter projects but I don't celebrate Easter, so I just tried to go for a nice spring feel to the card. The flowers were fussy cut and popped up with dimenionals on the embossed heart.

I don't know if I'm thrilled with how it all turned out but I guess in crafting sometimes you win , sometimes you lose. I tried though!

  1. Lisa, I am sorry you had such a hard time with this challenge. I'm am surprised it wasn't the color combo that threw you! I just want you to know that I love your card and I was very excited when I seen it. Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves. I am glad you stuck it out and gave us a shaped card because I think it is beautiful!!!

  2. P.S. I think the Paper Piercing was the icing on the cake...I mean card.

  3. Lisa, you used the colors so beautifully. I love how awesome your fussy cutting is on the flowers- great shaped card, too!

  4. Lisa, your card is actually quite lovely, and the fussing cutting of the flowers just adds to it. I know I've made a few cards for challenges and didn't particularly like them, but was too tired to try and come up with something else. To my surprise I ended up getting more comments on some of those cards than the ones I actually that were pretty great! lol Guess it's all in the eye of the beholder. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, its always appreciated!
