The Paper Players #309 : Sweet & CAS


Hi there!

Time for Sandy's sweet & CAS challenge at The paper players


                                                                      

I went for something sweet... but healthy too :)

Two examples for you today, showing one with softer blended colors...

... and one with solid color blocks:

be like a pineapple card


I wanted to incorporate the design elements captured in a pineapple without actually using a pineapple image.

I did that by welding a scalloped oval shape to a diagonal grid background in the Silhouette studio.

I added color to the background for the first card with distress inks by Hero Arts ( green hills, butter bar and a small amount of orange soda) and solid green and yellow card stock for the second card.

I created my own sentiment form a known quote found on Pinterest.

... and yes, you are welcome to download and use it  ☺

Adding my link to the following challenges:

AAA cards ~Blending (first card).

&

Uniko studio ~ Inspired by a song title.

I can think of 2 songs. One is Sweet Caroline by my all time favorite Neil Diamond & who can remember this one : Agadoo doo doo push pineapple shake the tree ! You can listen here !


                                           


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hope to see you play along this week :)

Hugs
Hannelie

I do love how your mind works, and your Silhouette just makes those thought come to fruition, Hannelie! Both cards scream pineapple in a very subtle voice! Thanks for sharing!

Back with my Uniko hat on. And no I don't need to listen to Agadoo, it's already filling my head just from reading the title! Love the card in these bright opaque colours too. Thanks for playing along.

Wat een mooi ontwerp weer! En dan bedoel ik niet alleen je kaarten, maar ook je tekst! Mooie combo is dat groen en geel, maar de zachtere tonen zijn iets meer mijn smaak (kont ook vast door de inkt :) ). Fijne week!

Beverley said...

WOW! Love how you have created the lattice and used the colours to represent a pineapple. The sentiment is awesome and so 'sweet' of you to share. LOVE your choice of songs too - awesome. Thanks so much for sharing and joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Hugs Bev x

Geri said...

Such a clever and 'fresh' idea! Nothing is sweeter than a nice, ripe pineapple AND your two delightful cards! Love the soft shading on your first card and the cool lattice background! Love how you ramped up the 'boldness' on your 2nd card with the bold colors!

HJ said...

Love your cards today, Hannelie. Both versions are beautiful with the colors and the lattice. The sentiment is awesome.

Anita in France said...

One wonderfully soft and subtle, Hannelie, one deliciously bold and vibrant ... and both just fabulous! What a fun sentiment ... and yes, I recall Agadoo ... it will be with me all evening I think!! Hugs, Anita :)

My Paper Cat said...

You rock Hannelie!! I LOVE the blending on the first card. The second card is awesome with the bold colors. That sentiment is what ROCKS though!!!

Guldara Kirwan said...

Love both of your cards - such a great way of expressing the idea of pineapple! And I loved the song, so did my grandson :-)
Thank you Hannelie!

Hannelie I just love the sentiment, and also the subtle shading of the first card alluding to a pineapple. Perfect!

Zelda C said...

Very creative cards! And loved the song choices.... haven't heard Agadoo doo doo song forever!

Deborah Frings said...

They are both fab cards. I do like the softly blended colours on the first card. That sentiment is just lovely. Thanks so much for playing along with Uniko this month! Deborah, DT.

BTW - I'm humming Agadoo now!!!

I love how you have creatively reproduced the 'feel' of a pineapple in both cards and the sentiment and it's design are fabulous.

Cheryl W. said...

I really love your first card with just a hint of color to suggest the pineapple. What a great way to suggest an image!

Claire Broadwater said...

Oh my, I just love this card! That sentiment is PERFECT! You are the Queen of beautiful CAS cards!!!!
