Weekly Challenge 2 – Monochromatic Project

The challenge from Stampin’ Up UK this week was to make a monochromatic project. This was my card which I chose to do in Petal Pink. Apart from the quality of Stampin’ Up products, the other reason I love them is that everything coordinates perfectly. For this project I was able to use my Stampin’ Blends to colour the ribbon and pearls to match.

Colourful Ornate Style

Colourful Ornate Garden

For me, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting listening to music and colouring. My sisters and I used to meet up on days when my middle sister wasn’t working and all the children were at school to do just that. It was really lovely we would have a chat and some lunch. This stamp set is great for those of us who like colouring as this large multi-floral image  is a great size.

Daisy Smile Card

DAISY SMILE

Yesterday was the weekly shop, I don’t know why but it always leaves me exhausted and despite lugging it all the way uphill home (we don’t drive), I am not getting any fitter. This could be because Lockdown diet is not going well, I have no self control. This time I have portioned everyone’s snacks out so all the goodies are not sat there calling me. I will do this 😆

Today’s card is the only in-colour I haven’t really used, Cinnamon Cider. See even that makes me think of food, I love cinnamon. Maybe I need to start the day with cinnamon and apple porridge 😆

Daisies – Scraps of Whisper White and So Saffron Cardstock

I love the way the Daisy Lane stamp set works so well, with this paper. If you buy the in-colour multipack Cardstock, you could do the daisies in Bumble Bee to match the DSP, but I preferred the lighter yellow for my daisies and as I don’t yet have the new in-colour blends I was able to use the So Saffron Blend for the inside of my white daisy.
