A Gallon/Quart/Pint Happy Birthday

Hi all!  I don’t usually post at night, but I’m trying to squeak in some MFT Summer School, Session #2 projects.  I didn’t get to play along with all of their challenges, but I did a few and tonight’s card is based upon the gallon – quart – pint lesson.

Color challenges and use are often quite tricky for me.  I wanted to use my Grout Gray as the gallon color.  I cut a card base of Grout Gray and a panel of Solar White with Blueprints 13.  I then randomly stamped the large swirl and the small star from Whimsical Wishes in Grout Gray Hybrid ink.  My quart color is Limelight — a color that I really love.  I stamped the circle trio in Limelight Dye ink.  Finally for my pint color, I used Razzle Berry to stamp the long line image from Whimsical Wishes.  I popped this panel up using fun foam on my card base.

For my focal point, I needed to do something that would accommodate and compliment that small font sentiment.  I cut a Stitched Circle Frame from Limelight and Solar White.  I made an oops, but I actually like how it turned out.  I stamped the line image in Grout Gray, but I didn’t get all of the Razzle Berry off the stamp before inking it up with Grout Gray, so it comes through rather faded looking.  I finished stamping the Solar White circle with the line image in Grout Gray.  I like the faded look.  I added in some stars in Limelight and the sentiment in Razzle Berry.  A few tiny pearly rhinestones finished it off.
