Colour Me…!27 Monochromatic


Happy Saturday, everyone!  Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend!  I had some late-night stamping time during the week and when I saw the Colour Me…! challenge of one of the new In Colors, Blackberry Bliss, I knew just what a wanted to do!

One of my customers sent me a pretty card with an interesting fold, and I wanted to replicate it!  Here is the front, using some Moonlight Papers and the new Flower Patch stamp set and Flower Fair dies:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings FLower Patch Stampin Up

I find I am still on a learning curve with these larger clear stamps; although I am getting a great image with the flowers, some of my words have little fuzzies on them; guess I need to clean them differently!  Anyway, here’s the fun part!  There is a little popped-up flower on the inside, and behind the front is a panel that folds, creating a little easel card:


Isn’t that cool?  This was my “prototype”…I need to play around with it a little bit more to get it just right!  But I like the simplicity of the monochromatic theme with the boldness of the stripes and flowers!  And of course, because I had a piece of stripey paper left, I used it with the new File Tab dies,  and my new Little Letters dies (LOVE THEM!!   I popped up the solid piece atop another piece of Blackberry Bliss DP and added some cotton ribbon:

I found that using a little piece of washi tape along the bottom edge (make sure its even) helped position my letter dies!  I think my file tab needs a little something…not sure what…..but I did add a chevron-embossed background for a trendy look!  Thanks for visiting today!

then washing out the glass hummingbird feeder (can you guess where this is going?);


Yep….she broke it, banging it on the driveway.  Very apologetic and hopefully a lesson learned because she cut her finger a teeeeny tiny little bit…and she hates the sight of blood!!!


Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

That's too bad! She looked like she was being such a good helper!

Blackberry bliss never looked so good... both cards are so clever, too. I like the little letters, I have been wondering about how big they were, now I can really see. They are a nice size!

Love both of your cards LeAnne - the fancy fold on the first one is really cute and they are both examples of great monochromatic cards. Thanks for the washi tape tip for the letters too - I'm expecting mine to arrive with my UPS man this week :-) Thanks for joining us over at Colour Me...! - see you again soon. Joanne x
P.S. Hope Miss Cassidy's finger is better now!
