Creative Corners - Make It Monday #196

This weeks Make-It-Monday challenge was to create interesting corners on a card rather than applying a design to the center.  It seemed like a great opportunity to use the cute flower stamps that were the Papertrey Ink December Freebie.  For my background I cut out my Harlequin Die cover plate and then used it as a stencil.

The color inspiration palette was so pretty this month I also tried out a birthday card in the spirit of this theme.

My card was based on this great sketch below.

And here is the finished card.

Make-it-Monday: a la Carte

Since this week's Make-it-Monday at Papertrey Ink was a la Carte, I had a difficult time choosing what to create.  I have missed a number of the challenges and was intrigued by more than one of the videos.  I finally decided on #177 Using Cover Plate Negatives.  I had a great time with this because one card led to another and then another.  Here is my card using the cover plate negative technique.

I used my Stripes Diagonal Die and cut out it out of white cardstock; the negative shapes are on this first card.  That looked fine, but I then thought about using the positive cover plate that remained for another card.  I decided to try using it as a stencil.  Here is the result.
I used post-it tape to hold the cover plate positive shape to a piece of white cardstock and was able to blend some pink and orange ink to get a pretty background for this card.  When I finished this card I still had my positive shape from the cover plate, it was just blended with color.  Well I though I could use this too, so one more card came out of this project.
