Weekly Challenge #33 - Monochromatic

Challenge:   Monochromatic 
August 20 - 26th, 2013

Here's an example of a monochromatic card for you... this time in Turquoise!  I live in Idaho where there are fires running rampant and the temperature continues to hover around 100° F, so I opted for a theme of cold weather that I just can't wait for!

I used four different Paper Smooches sets on this card.  I think that might be a record for me!  Can you guess them all? 

The four PS sets I used are:  Winter Groves, Geo-Graphic, He Said She Said, and Hang Ups.  This card also includes Bazzill Basics cardstock, VersaMark & Memento Bahama Blue inks, Washi Tape from WeRMK, Nestabilities, Copic Markers, and a gem from TPC Studio.

Please play along and join in the fun!  We will be announcing the winners on August 30, 2013.  You can link your project Here

Happy Stamping!

Weekly Challenge #32 - Square Cards

Challenge:  Square Card Challenge 3x3 or 4x4
August 13 - 19th, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone!  TGIF!  I hope your plans this weekend include making a small, square card for our challenge.  I had a bit of a hard time changing from the standard rectangular card, but that's what challenge is all about! 

For this project, I started out with Bazzill Basics "Two Scoops" textured cardstock in Black Cow for the base and the Smoothies cardstock in Coconut Swirl for the white panel.  The patterned papers and border stickers are all from the "Mac" line from Bazzill Basics.  And the adorable stamps?   They're from Paper Smooches sets called "Fruitastic" and "Sentiment Sampler".  Love those!   The ribbon is beautiful hand-dyed silk from The Thread Gatherer, and the wood button was from my stash.

I know everyone loves Fridays.  Here's my favorite quote about this awesome day of the week:

Make each day of the week like Friday and your life will take on new enthusiasm.  - Byron Pulsifer
