Thanks So Much Calypso Coral Chevrons

 Calypso chevrons - two cool

These two cool cards were part of my Spring Catalog Kick-Off event back in January.  I've discovered that the Oh, Hello stamp set is surprisingly versatile.  The bold sentiments
are fun, but I'm also loving the look of the patterned chevrons!

Even though I didn't use it on this project, I borrowed the color combination from the Tea For Two Designer Series Paper.  The card base is Calypso Coral and it's accented with Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Pretty In Pink.

I used markers colored directly on the stamp to get the multicolored image. 

Stamp-A-Ma-Jig Alert!  This is definitely one of those stamps that looks MUCH better lined up straight.  I recommend using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig if you want perfect alignment.  If you haven't tried this awesome tool, just know that it's easier than it looks and the results are fabulous every time!

A 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of Calypso Coral was embossed with the Chevrons Texture Impressions Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Island Indigo on Whisper White, then punched with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch. 

An Old Olive Bright Button is threaded with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine and adhered with a Glue Dot.  I wrapped more of the twine around the bottom and tied in a bow.

The chevrons have a whole different zig-zag look when they are lined up side-by-side.  Love it!
