More Monochromatic


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Yesterday was, without a doubt, one of the most depressing, rainy days I ever experienced.  It just rained and rained and rained.  I only got a little stamping time last night so I broke into the new color, Pretty Peacock, which is very pretty...reminds me of Tranquil Tide but darker!  I haven't played with the Mojo Monday sketch since Julie brought it back, so I thought I would give it a whirl:


I used the pretty sentiment from Stitched All Around along with one of the birds from the May Paper Pumpkin, stamping them both in Pretty Peacock.  I layered some of the In Color DSPs, some Dotted Tulle ribbon, and finally, a little diecut border:


The Stitched Nested Labels fit the sentiment perfectly:


And I just love this DSP....especially those scripty words!


And since I had some leftover scraps, I made another card, same papers, dies and stamps, just a different layout, and this time, I added a couple of faceted dots:


I can't wait to pair up this pretty hue with some other colors!  

Cassidy got a little steppingstone kit for her birthday last year, and Dana helped her mix up the ingredients to create it:


She enjoyed putting the little glass pieces around in a pattern:


And the final result looks very sweet in their little flower bed, along with the doggie statue, LOL!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Both cards are really pretty with the new Pretty Peacock color! And those Stitched Nested Dies are amazing, aren't they?! Love Miss Cassidy's stepping stone! Kelsey had one of those kits when she was little and we still have it! TFS and have a great day! :)

Cassidy's addition to her garden is fantastic!

Lovely cards LeAnne - I used Stitched All Around and Pretty Peacock and that lovely script paper in my class yesterday! You are rocking those border dies by the way - very nice! If it makes you feel any better, we have had 48 hours of constant rain and greyness here too - it is depressing! Your card has brightened my day though :-) Love Cassidy's stepping stone!
