Communique Curves Inspirations...


Hello lovely ladies.  It's my favorite time again...Papertrey countdown time.  Where do the months go?  I'm still trying to figure out where October went and it's heading towards the middle of November! 

The Papertrey gals have some fun stuff in store for you tonight.  Cards using the new Communique Curves and Sentiments sets.  I love fonts and typography and all that jazz, so if you're like me, you'll love playing with this set.  I could've played all day!  So many possibilities.  I love that it's a holiday set, but then there's the little extra sentiment set, that when combined the two give you almost endless possibilities for combinations.  Definitely some serious play time. 

Nichole challenged the design team to create two cards...first a holiday card, then take the same design, switch it up a bit and create an everyday card.  I kept it nice and simple, so if you haven't started your holiday cards yet (me?  who me?  no.....never.), this is super fast and easy with minimal supplies.


I added a flourish from Fancy Flourishes along with a few of the tiny snowflakes from Winter Swirls...



Stamps: Communique Curves, Fancy Flourishes, Winter Swirls (snowflakes)
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy
Cardstock: Rustic Cream
Other: Rustic Snowflakes patterned paper, red gems, Pure Poppy button, Aqua Mist Top Notch Twill, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, Cuttlebug embossers, Rustic Cream button twine

And here is my everyday version....a birthday card.  I used the balloons from Everyday Button Bits....


Some fun Cuttlebug embossing along the top edge finishes it off....



Stamps: Communique Curves, Communique Sentiments, Everyday Button Bits
Ink: Smokey Shadow, Aqua Mist, Orange Zest, Hibiscus Burst

Alrighty!!  Fun stuff.  Now take a tour around the other Design Team blogs and be inspired.  I'm off to check them out too...
