I have found one of the happiest mood boards I’ve seen in a while, and the colours have inspired a project or 3.

This image is the current Tuesday Trigger: Sweet on Spring at Moxie Fab World submitted by Kim Wilson.
At the same time, I found the Colour Combination Just Add Ink Challenge #7, which has very similar colour themes. Such a great blog with so many ideas to get excited about!
So I am playing along with both challenges.
I also tried something new with these 3 cards…I made the second one from the offcuts of the first, and the third one from the offcuts of the second. It is amazing to me how much use you can actually get out of paper scraps without too much effort! I think my little experiment worked, however, it could go against me as my paper hoarding tendencies could rise to new levels now!
This was made at a Stampin’ Up! party a few nights ago, so all thanks to Anna Wilson, the SU! Consultant, for the wonderful design.
Embossing done using an amazing Cuttlebug machine
Punched & scrunched never looked so good!
Love those turquoise-y brads
There were so many beautiful scraps left over that I couldn’t throw them out, but instead, created this next design making the best use of them that I could.
The papers I punched the flower petals from (Card #1) become the feature
Letters from Rough Edges Alphabets (SU! set)
Left over embossed card & a simple knot of ribbon
So now, using up the little fiddly bits wasn’t hard with this layered and scalloped dress that I would surely wear, if only I get convert it into material!! I added the peach colour so that I can include it in the Embellish Magazine Colour Challenge with Borders as well as the Moxie Fab’s Sweet on Spring Tuesday Trigger.
Layers made using scallop-shaped scissors
Flower from tiny scraps; handmade wire coathanger
Love the green rhinestones
Now that I’ve gotten my molto piccolo (‘very tiny’ in Italian in case you didn’t realise!) fascination out of the way for the day, it’s off to two birthday parties & then dinner with friends. Have a great long weekend, talk next week!
