Today I'm playing along for the first time in a Colour Q Challenge.  I have made a little 10cm x 10cm square card .... such a cute size, that I was introduced to by my friend Chris.   Boy have I packed a lot onto this little area, though -  I ended up using 5 stamp sets and 4 punches!

Here are the gorgeous colours that Arielle has chosen to be used on a papercraft project:

I think these colours together look quite rustic, and folksy (is that a word?).  LOVE them!

Here's my little creation:

Stamps: Love Defined, Itty Bitty Bits, Tiny Tags, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Confetti
Card: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait
Ink: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Peach Parfait stampin' pads and markers
Other: Peach Parfait poly-stitched ribbon, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, Owl Punch XL, Word Window Punch, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch, aquapainter, Kraft corduroy button, sponge dauber, ruler, bone scorer, mini glue dot, Tombow multi glue

I know that's rather a big button for such a little card, but I was determined to use it ... I received an assortment of Kraft Corduroy Buttons (not available in Australia) for Christmas, from a dear friend, and I just love them.  I like the texture it adds, in conjunction with the ribbon.



  1. Happy Australia Day to you as well, Christine! This is a great Valenines card. Amazing, the first three cards are for Valentines Day. Great job with the colors. Thanks for playing the ColourQ challenge this week.

  2. I love using lots of sets---makes me feel like I am getting my money's worth! You've created a sweet little masterpiece here! Thanks for playing with the CQC!

  3. Fabulous tree - so pretty!

  4. This is gorgeous Christine. The line of hearts is a great touch. You are really gifted with colours my friend. The button looks good too :).

  5. Such a pretty card! I love that you combined so many sets and punches to create it. :)
    I too LOVE those brads, I just ordered a bunch. It really ties in your ribbon, they have kind of the same texture. THanks for playing along with us at ColourQ.

  10. Fantastic card - very sweet!

  11. Wow Christine, you have managed to play with lots of lovely goodies with this little beauty! Yes, the colours are kind of rustic/"folksy" (*insert divine*) & I just adore how you have inked the tree & added the extra hearts on each limb. So cute! :)
    I am trying hard to resist this set Christine, but you keep on tempting!!!!

  12. Darling card!! Love the little trail of hearts. Thanks for playing at the ColourQ!!
