Paper Quilt Block Card 2

This card a made from Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral and Whisper White. A slightly different version from Tuesday’s card.

Since orange and blue are Complementary Colors, they work well together or as the name suggests they compliment each other.  Complementary Colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other.  Orange and Blue are complementary colors, so they produce a really striking effect. It depends on the shade of orange and blue. As you can see, a vibrant orange, such as Calypso Coral and a bright blue, like Dapper Denim, work really well together.

Try a few of these. I’m working on a larger version to use in a frame as a wall-hanging. I’ll post it as soon as I finish it.

Paper Quilt Block Card

Today’s share are a few Paper Quilt Block Cards and designs. I’m hoping to make some with the new Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 In-Colors. So, stay tuned and check back.

This card was made using a quilt and shape dies I have. You can use any of your geometric shaped dies to create beautiful Paper Quilt Blocks. Mix up the designer Series Paper patterns as you would fabric. In quilt making you should try to go with a light, medium and dark colors/patterns that don’t compete, but compliment each other.

In the above card the light color is the Flirty Flamingo Design, the medium color is the blue and white and the dark color is the Dapper Denim border.  Die cut and punch out different shapes and play around with different colors and patterns. You’ll be surprised at how many variations you’ll achieve.

Come visit again on tomorrow for a slightly different variation.

Make what you love… and love what you make…
