I did enjoy having a short time to stamp on a rainy, cool Saturday … and ended up with 3 cards to show for it! I was planning to share a super card using the BRAND NEW “Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch” that Jenny & I played with on our stamping day recently … but that will have to wait a little longer … because today’s card is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge … so I had better get that posted first! 😉
Challenge details: CFC21 – Create a Clean And Simple project using at least 3 shades of a monochromatic color (your choice) PLUS Brown.
Aren’t the punched flowers just the sweetest! I have to practice a little to combine the different shapes that this punch creates … but no time for that today. So … the challenge asked for ‘at least’ 3 shades of a colour … and I managed 4!!!! 🙂 From left to right … Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party & (ret.) Soft Sky. The tiny flower centres are created using a retired SU! punch “Trio Flower Punch”. Some punches you just don’t want to part with! 😉 I even managed to get each of the four colours in ink onto the stamped panel. And … I do love gathering that double stitched ribbon. It gathers soooo well! Anyway … gotta go … and do some “paid” work! See you all again soon. Hugs xx
PS: What do you think about my new blog look. They say that moving the furniture around at home is a sign of a ‘bored housewife’ … I did feel like a change … it has been over a year since I redid it … but the jury is still out about the design. I was looking for something a little more ‘funky’ … but perhaps I should have left it til I wasn’t so rushed?! I do think the layout looks much cleaner & brighter. It has taken me all night last night to put it together … so I won’t be changing it again too soon!!! 😀
