Color Your Day



 I am calling this project my 70-20-10 project or another way I have heard it referred is gallon-quart-pint. I don't generally think in this manner, but when I focus on this technique, I do like the results.

I started my card today by stamping the twig from Altenew Freeform Greenery stamp set in Pure Graphite Crisp dye ink. I have curved the stamp on the block so that it stamps in a more circular form. 

Next, I stamped the leaf from Altenew Remember This in Silver Stone Crisp Dye ink.

Then I took a small leaf cluster from Altenew Beautiful Heart and stamped that with Moss Crisp Dye ink.

Then I used the little bud/berry stamp from Altenew Freeform Greenery and first stamped it in Coral Bliss Crisp Dye ink and then in Sunkissed Crisp Dye ink.

I adhered the panel to a coral colored card base.

I blended a scrap piece of card stock in the Coral Bliss Crisp Dye ink and the die cut the Thank You from Altenew Flower Arrangement dies. I cut it three times in white and once from the blended card stock. I adhered them together with a Two-Way glue pen.

I wanted the sentiment to be a little darker, so I pounced some Vineyard Berry Crisp Dye ink onto it. Then I adhered it to the card with the Two-Way glue pen.

I have heard that your neutrals do not count in the calculation of this technique, but I considered the coral as my gallon, the green as my quart, and the yellow as the pint. Hope you enjoyed this.

Thanks for joining me!

The inspiration for this project came from a scrapbook post that I saw from Enza Gudor had a project that was featured. I could not locate it when I went back to find it. But it was stunning.


  1. Beautiful applications, Linda! Love your use of the twine/branch stamp and turn it into a wreath! It is gorgeous with the additional pops of colors and stamping in gray! I am so glad that you enter your beautiful work in Altenew AECP assignment Gallery. Awesome details and design! Super work!
