Blue, Blue, and More Blue

It's just sad when we have so much powerful technology at our fingertips and it doesn't work. I'm still using awkward work-arounds to blog.

Thank heaven for awkward work-arounds.

Still can't print anything, though.


Enough complaining. Today's card comes courtesy of inspiration by Pinterest. The inspiration piece is much lighter and more delicately colored than my card, but so what? Inspiration is just the starting point, and we stampers have to make do with what we this case, Ombre Builders from Papertrey. I came up with a dramatic blue, geometric card that makes me so very, very happy!

I actually cut about seven or eight panels using most of the stamps in the set, and then experimented with which ones looked best together. These three were by far the most dramatic and effective least with the shading and colors I used from the Kaleidacolor all-blue pad.

The panels are 2.5" x 0.75".

The sentiment works because, really, what would you say goes with this sort of abstract, geometric design?

stamps: Papertrey Ombre Builders
ink: Kaleidacolor
paper: Papertrey
accessories: none, unless you count the glue and cutting tools


  1. oh I absolutely love how you used these stamps and the colors you chose Susan.

  2. Your patterns and shades of blue are marvelous.

  3. I think the geometric pattern and palette would make it a home run as a "man card", so I might be tempted to pair it with Happy Fathers' Day, Birthday, or whatever.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
