Surprise! I’m back again today friends and I hope you are having a glorious summer! Speaking of summer (although figuratively) today I’m using a new quote stamp from QQuietfire Design that I haven’t used before – In the Midst of Winter. It was my mission today, not to use gold, lol. As a shopper, I’m perpetually on the hunt for the “right shade of pink” and last week in the craft store I randomly bought a bottle of chalk paint because it was precisely “the right shade of pink”. At the time I knew that I’d be painting it onto paper; I swoon over the texture of chalk. So there you have it, that was the inspiration for today’s card – an ode to pink.

Walk Through on How to Make the Card

The base of the card is 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ on white Neenah cardstock.  I used the same white paper cut to 5″ x 7″ and painted chalk paint down the front with a foam brush that I had blotted most of the paint off of.  It dried in less than 5 minutes.  (By the way, I used the Hinged technique to make the large card base).

Focal Panel
I used Spellbinders Labels 52 Decorative Accents along with corner elements from Spellbinders Imperial Square.  The lines on the die are fairly narrow so the best way to adhere the frame to the base was by using thin slivers of double stacked foam tape.  Both the painted layer and frame are elevated this way.

I reached out for easy Spoon Flowers using Spellbinders (Contour Die) Layered Blooms.   Using just the two smallest petals I created two spoon flowers using three medium petal sets and two small petal sets.  Then I created a smaller bud using three small petal sets.  They were glued onto a Seam Binding bow and embellished with net and a corsage pin.  I finished up with four large pearls in each corner – 1 is hidden.

    Such a stunning card Becca. Love that quote! I hope to have an invincible summer. My mom passed away last month and I had a miscarriage in March so the first half of the year has not been good. Hopefully Summer will be good to me and the rest of the year will be better. :)

    My favorite color…pink! Just love it! So shabby chic and pretty.

    As always…your work always impresses me. Hope all is well with you and your family.

    One of my favorite sayings…I created a counted cross stitch of this a few decades ago, and just love it.

    Favorite color – depends on the day and mood, but I tend to move towards greens and blues…purple. Lately I’ve been loving working brights on black…yellow. Fun fun fun.

    Love this card, and thanks for challenging yourself to work outside your gold comfort zone. I know how easy it is got get caught in a cycle sometimes! Can’t wait to see what you’ve cleared your desk off to create!


  • Juanita BraunJune 24, 2016 - 4:20 pm

    Love this card. Did the chalk paint warp the paper? Pink is my favorite color. It’s a color that is so calming.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJune 24, 2016 - 4:37 pm

      Juanita, I was shocked but it did not. I have to admit that I removed most of the paint from the brush by dry brushing it on a paper towel. Because it was a good bit dry – that’s how I got the streaks!ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca – I just love the subtlety of the white with the pale pink chalk paint. The card is a picture of elegance.
    I love green but mauves and pinks follow hard on its heels. Green is so restful and I have green in many of the rooms of our home. I bring the outside in :o)

    I love a dark blue. I think that when we were going together, before we got married, my husband liked me in blue. He said it brought out the blue in my eyes. Maybe that’s why I like it so well.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanJune 24, 2016 - 5:22 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    This is a beautiful shade of pink; it has a feel of sophistication to it. I think pink is kind of an elusive color. I have to look at it closely when it’s part of my card palette to see what undertones it has. Last Christmas, I was trying to match what I thought was an off-white/ivory background and realized later it was the palest hue of pink. Being a card maker has definitely helped me to be attentive to the subtleties of color.
    My favorite color is red – it delights my senses! I’ve discovered a little can go a long way, however.
    Happy creating, ye with a clean desk! Creativity is such a messy business, isn’t it? I’ve know of people who can be productive in chaos but not me…order lets me clear my mind and free my spirit. Looking forward to the fruits of your labor!

  • Joanne LoweJune 24, 2016 - 5:23 pm

    Love it when I see you’re using your spoon flowers, I bought that die set AND a “crafting set” of measuring spoons because I didn’t want to use my good set. LOVE this technique, now I’m ready to try it. :)

    Beautiful pink and white card!!! I’d love to see you use more silver and some purples and lilacs, or some turquoise–just because I know you can make anything you create beautiful, these plus a lime/grass green are favorite colors and I’d love to see what you do with them too. I am a purple girl, so more about silver but I enjoy the warm colors of autumn leaves too.

    You always inspire me, and I’m so grateful, Becca.



  • PAM TASJune 24, 2016 - 5:28 pm

    green is my favourite I call it Gods colour !

  • RayaJune 24, 2016 - 5:41 pm

    Becca, love your card. My favorite color is the color that you chose today. I love the vintage pink and shades of that nature as I usually make vintage looking cards. I love the idea of chalk paint.ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJune 24, 2016 - 5:41 pm

    Love this card!!! What a clever idea to use the chalk paint for your background. You astonish me, Becca. You have created a wonderful look with this card.

    My favorite color is blue. I don’t know why….but I think it is because it seems like a “fresh” color. Maybe it’s because I’m a water lover.ReplyCancel

  • Sandra SmithJune 24, 2016 - 6:41 pm

    Love the chalk paint and the look you achieved. The sentiment is a beautiful reminder that I needed today as I sit here with my husband in the hospital at Mayo. When he’s struggling, it feels like winter but I know summer is a part of this process because he is going to feel so much better for having had the surgery. Thank you for the beautiful reminder.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card! I never, ever would’ve thought to use chalk paint on a card in any way! You are always so inspiring!!!

    Blue has always, always been my favorite color all my life. But I equally love green now too. Don’t know why. As I’ve thought of your question about why perhaps it’s stems from my mom’s love of gardening that she passed into me. Which would explain my love of yellow too! Those three colors are just my happy place!ReplyCancel

    A beautiful card as always, Becca. I don’t really have a favorite color any more.

So, in the end it really depends on my mood.ReplyCancel

    I like the idea of having a mostly white card and using subtle colors to accent the die patterns. I’m intrigued to use the chalk paints for my next project. My favorite color has been RED since I was in elementary school. I love the dynamic, strong and commanding statement red represents. I use it for sympathy and get well cards to give strength and courage to the recipient.ReplyCancel

    My favourite colour is purple/lilac or gradations thereof, I simply love these colours and when combined with gradations of green I’m in my element hahaha.

    Your creations are so inspiring – not just to see but to read. I also love to share words that encourage, inspire and tickle the spirit of the reader – I do it with fabric, paint, paper flowers, quotes, puns, tags, etc. I market them locally at craft fairs, festivals, holiday shows, and an art and frame shop close by. I truly believe others see the love in what we do and that’s what inspires. Best wishes in all your endeavors. When I need a moment of inspiration I click on your bookmark asking to be taken to Amazing Paper Grace.

  • Dianne SchlegelJune 25, 2016 - 11:20 am

    It’s hard to choose just one – it would be easier to tell you the color I am not fond of – gray! Since I was a little girl, contrasting colors always appealed to me – probably a reflection of my personality. If I had to choose one it would probably be in the pink family because pink makes me think of babies, soft things and cuddly things-innocence and purity. Thank you for asking Becca.

  • Granny DJune 25, 2016 - 11:48 am

    Teal has always been my favorite color since I discovered it many years ago.

    Love using the combination of cocoa brown and cream or gold ribbons. Looks really elegant. Just got some sample of silk ribbon and the blush and cream may be my summer replacement (speaking of pink…..)ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    Another gorgeous card with the beautiful “spoon” flowers. Thank you.
    My favourite colour is green, because it reminds me of my mother but for card making it has to be blue or teal.

    Lovely card! I would have to say,”Any pastel shade, but pink definitely comes up tops!”ReplyCancel

    Lovely card! I would have to say,”Any pastel shade, but pink definitely comes up tops!” I guess it’s because I love all things soft and feminineReplyCancel

    Hi Becca. Your card is beautiful. I’ve don’t think I’ve seen these dies before but are on my wish list now. My favourite colour is probably pink, not too pale but certainly not too bright either. Take care xReplyCancel

    the card is beautiful. I love the dies and the white. My favorite colors are purple and royal as those colors compliment my complexion and color of my eyes. Thank you for all the beautiful designs you have given us.ReplyCancel

    This all white card is just beautiful.
    One of these day I need to try an all white card.
    My favorite color in clothes is blue
    but my favorite color in stamping is pink.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely card.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    This card is gorgeous. You are always thinking outside of the box! I am not sure if I have a favourite colour. I do like whites, pinks & creams, but I love all different colours as well.
    Have a lovely weekend! xReplyCancel

    Such a lovely card with just the right shade/tint of pink. That “just right shade” is an elusive thing! My favorite color since Jr High school is purple – any shade or tint of purple. It is my favorite color because it makes me happy!!!!!ReplyCancel

    The ribbon and bow are particularly lovely. I would love to be able to make these types of bows, but my arthritic fingers won’t cooperate, so I recently purchased a bow maker and now I’m learning how to make the same style of bow that you make. Canada Day was lovely in Calgary!ReplyCancel
