Monochromatic Monday – Jar of Haunts

I’ve been a bit out of commission with the start of the school year and a rotten cold.  Don’t know why, but this year I have wanted to hang on to the last bits of summer (which is not usually me).  I’ve got to get my fall/winter mojo going because Stampin’ Up! has a gazillion new items to play with in the holiday catalog.

Monochromatic Monday – seems I really like this post day.  Today’s post features all of gray colors – Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, and Memento Black with a little Whisper White.  A little Old Olive is in the eyeball coloring.  I don’t usually color with blender pens, but that is how I colored the solution in the jar.

Jar of Haunts is a must-have item if you have the coordinating framelits.  So easy and fun to use – the jar stamp is the medium-sized jar in the framelit set.  I also used the Spooky Fun and the Hardwood background stamp set.

Our new label punch is easy to layer by just punching out a few extra pieces and cutting them and adhering them behind the saying.

Monochromatic Monday – Sweet Sugarplum Butterflies

We are enjoying the last few days of summer here; in fact, school starts this week.  So before my blog goes all pumpkin spice and gingerbread cookie crazed, I thought I should put up one last summer card.

Today’s monochromatic color is Sweet Sugarplum.  Ok, whenever I look at this color all I can see is mauve.  So I challenged myself to create a card with it.

I did use the Fresh Fruits stamp set for the birthday phrase.  The butterfly punches, thinlits, and embossing folders coordinate nicely.  Love the rouched ribbon especially on this diagonal front.  And yes, pearls again.  I can’t help myself.

Hope you like it!

Monochromatic Monday-Falling Flowers

Today’s challenge is creating a card with a monochromatic color palette, and my choice was Daffodil Delight.

I’m kind of crazy over our Basic Pearls, and this card uses plenty of them!  Did you know if you press the pearls first before taking them off the protective sheet, they won’t lose their glue dot?  One of my stampers suggested this, and it really does work!

The main stamp set is Falling Flowers, and the phrase is from Layering Love.

Sponging around the focal image softens the overall look.  This card lends itself with any color palette!
