paint chip card


I have decided to start a blog to showcase the scrapping and cards that I made. This is my first attempt at a blog so if anyone actually decides to read my blog, I hope that you enjoy what you see. I welcome all constructive feedback on my designs and creations.

The first item I am highlighting is a card I made for an element swap. We had to use a paint chip card as our element.

While in Lowe's I noticed these awesome paint chips for Valspar paint. I really liked how there were colors that highlighted historical preservation colors. I knew immediately I wanted to use one of these chips. I went outside my comfort zone and did not choose green or purple. I chose a nice blue color and then went with a complementary yellow chip to peek through the squares. I love ribbon and decided to run a narrow ribbon with small knots behind the blue so the knots were centered on the yellow square. I added three yellow organdy ribbons with blue flowers on top with button centers.

I hope you enjoy this card and that you come back to see more if you did.


  1. Congrats on your first blog post!!! It really is fun to have somewhere to showcase your stuff. Love the card too...don't you love it when and where inspiration strikes?

  2. Absolutely! I think I am going to keep this as a standard layout for me.
