Pirouette Card

Today's post features the third of a set of cards I created for next week's Card's, Etc. Workshop and it's probably my favorite.  (Details about the first two cards were in yesterday's post.)  I wasn't sure how the color combo would work, but I think it turned out really pretty.

I used a little inspiration from both ColourQ and CASE Study for help with this card.  I used CASE Study #122 and ColourQ Challenge #170.  The ColourQ challenge is interesting this week, as each member of the "Royal Court" selected a different palette, giving participants 13 different color combos to pick from!  Pretty cool.  I selected the palette that Silke used.
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Stamps Used: Pirouette, For Every Occasion
Inks: Chocolate, Baby Pink (retired), Blush, VersaMark
Other: Cocoa Embossing PowderPiercing Tool KitFoam Tape, Sponge, Bone FolderMicro-tip ScissorsPaper Trimmer,  Heat Tool, Zip Dry Paper Glue (Beacon Adhesives), ATG Adhesive (Scotch)

I'll be back Monday with the first challenge of the new year from Heart 2 Heart, as I begin my next term on the design team. :)  Trust me, you won't want to miss what I made...I'm still awestruck. ;)

Until next time....


  1. Tamytha this is gorgeous and love the vintage/shabby chic feel to it.

  2. Such a pretty card. Love that bow! Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

  3. Tamytha, did you use the ink pad with a dauber on the ribbon and then scrunch it up? I just love the effect! I would have never in a million years thought to accent that paper with pink! LOVE it.

    1. I never would have thought to do pink either, but the ColourQ inspired be to give it a shot. :)

      As for the ribbon, I used baby pink ink pad directly on and all over the ribbon. I then used Blush ink directly on the ribbon, but just in spots/streaks. I then scrunched the ribbon and put it into a ziplock bag. Before closing the ziplock bag, I spritzed the ribbon with water and then crunched and squished away. The trick is to not use to much water, as to wash away the ink, but just enough to help wrinkle it and to help mottle the ink a little. After a couple of minutes, I allowed it to dry and even hit it with the heat tool a little to speed it up.

      Thanks for visiting and for the comment. :)
