Work of Art Friendship - Painter's Palette with little Furball.

Hello fellow crafters! For today's Crazy Crafters team project highlights, I thought I would showcase the new Painter's Palette set and Playful Palette designer series paper, along with the Layering Squares framelit dies which perfectly coordinate with this set. It's a fun and colorful set especially the designer series paper and features all the new 2016-2018 In Colors as well.

I have chosen to use the fabulous sentiment, "Our friendship is a work of art", and made a shaker window using the layering squares framelits dies by die cutting the stamped frame from the set. 
For the rest, I have used a piece of the Playful palette dsp on the back and have chosen a darker design so that the sentiment can be seen. The sentiment has been stamped on a window sheet using white Stazon ink. Fun foam has been used to create the shaker window walls by nesting the layering squares framelits dies. The sequins used, was some gold stars I had for awhile and wanted to use that, but any sequins or even glitter or confetti off cuts could be used.

The photo below is how the window shaker frame looks from the side angle view. The other smaller frames have been created using the new Layering Squares framelit dies. It also has the wonderful scallop border edge squares which is adds a cute detail. I decided to include my favourite cat image from You Little Furball as I love cats and have have used the leopard print from Going Wild dsp. It adds a retro Pop art feel to the card which is appropriate for this art exhibition look.

As you can see the front panel has been trimmed to show another piece of the Playful Palette dsp and I have used a scallop border just to define the edge separation and add interest. This is a great way to showcase the dsp or show some contrast to a layout and I have done the same on the inside of the card and used the reverse side of the dsp that was left over. The front panel has been mounted on fun foam for an even raise and just give the card dimension with the layers. The main card stock used is the lovely sweet sugarplum which is the same colour as the front dsp.

I hope you enjoyed my card project for today and this set will be available soon on June 1st. It's a fun and playful set and adds a splash of colour to any project.

Please head on over to Kylie's Crazy Crafters team project highlights for more inspirations. You can also vote for your top three favourite cards.

  1. Very cute! That's a very indignant looking cat! Or maybe it's worried that it's coat is also destined for a panel!

    1. Thank you Stephanie. Haha no I couldn't do that lol. It's all faux of course, and features an array of spots on the front even on the cat. :)
