For this challenge I decided to use the color scheme in the second inspiration photo. I think it's my favorite color scheme from the bunch. Isn't it just delicious?
While looking at this color scheme, the first thought that came to my mind was fun & whimsy, which lead me to think of the great Gingerbread Lane stamp and die set that I hadn't been able to try out just yet. I really liked the gingerbread houses that Daniel made during release countdown week, so I case'd her design while using this great color scheme. (FYI - while stamping, I found that Hibiscus Burst was a bit dark for my needs and decided to substitute it with Sweet Blush).
I worked on both of the houses at the same time, trying to use a little bit of each of the colors from the inspiration photo. I'll admit, it was late and my brain had apparently gone to sleep, since I found that I'd glued bits and pieces together which I hadn't originally intended to. And, umm ... well, it wasn't an isolated incident, as it happened more than once. So, I ended up with one mostly turquoise house and one mostly pink house. ha!
I added one house to a Tag Sale #4 die cut from Aqua Mist card stock, and the other to a pillow box die cut from Sweet Blush card stock, spritzed with a pearl mist, and impressed with the Picnic Plaid impression plate. Both projects sport the same sentiment stamped in Hawaiian Shores, with the word "sweet" from Strawberry Patch stamped in Raspberry Fizz.
Wouldn't this pillow box be perfect to gift someone special with a sugary treat packaged inside?
Aside from the pearls, bakers twine, and glittery embossing powder, all supplies are from PTI.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
