Second Spotlight on Heather Pulvirenti

Our spotlight shines at last on the colorful and bold Heather Pulvirenti.  We adore Heather's amazing ability with color, pattern and design.  She makes it took effortless, seamless and natural which is a true gift as anyone who plays with these elements knows it certainly is not!  In fact, how Heather picks color is an art in itself!


HP - Parentsville
Look at those colors giving Parentville life!  Heather has some traditional navy and grey and then livens up the card with aqua and sunshine yellow.  And that large heart framed by cut out circle paired with the "dad" on a popped up banner is modern and unexpected.  The "happy father's day" is certainly not lost as it white embossed on a strip of vibrant yellow.  One of the details which is really fantastic is the diamond pattern paper Heather created!  So suave!

HP - Big Bold You
Soft colors with bold patterns makes this card a delight!  Here we have an organic pink leaf on a graphic grey and white chevron patterned paper and it works!  Heather chose to so something also really fun by white embossing the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and You over the the slightly raised leaves to give it interest and dimension as it becomes part of the leaf where it touches.  So lovely!

HP - Leave It to Dad

Heather's journaling cards are something to always get excited about.  There is so much going on and they all work so well together.  I bet they would be stunning on a layout, card, or pocket journaling too.  On this pair she used not only The Write Stuff: Leave it to Dad expertly, but also worked in the numbers and ledger heart from The Write Stuff: Love Story, "love" from You've Got Love Mail (did you know that is Julie's handwriting?) and the diamond border from Parentville. Way to work the stamps, Heather!

HP - Leave It to Dad 2

Using the same not-stuffy-whatsoever male friendly color palette, Heather made another couple of journaling cards with The Write Stuff: Leave it to Dad along with the ticket from The Write Stuff: Love Story.  She also stamped the bow tie from Parentville on one of the love tickets.  Wow, she knows how to play with all the stamp sets.  This warms our hearts as we do try to make stamp sets work together from release to release.  These two cards have strong backgrounds one from embossing and the other due to Heather's stamping of the argyle pattern found in The Write Stuff: Leave it to Dad.   Perfection!

HP - Leave It to Mom

Here comes a lovely Mom card!  Heather expertly frames the fussy cut "mom" from Parentville with the frame from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom and double layers of leaves including one in vellum and a white embossed bow from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom.  Again the simple design, color palette and patterns are spot on and make this a gorgeous card with a fresh feel!
