A Monochromatic Lovers Dream…

Oh My WORD! I can’t wait for you all to see the NEW 2013-14 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, one of my most favorite things are the NEW In-Colors!! I love how they really round out the rest of the colors in the newly updated families!  
Today is a NEW sketch challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, and I thought that I would go with my good old safety blanket- something Monochromatic!
I jsut LOVE how pretty monochromatic cards are, and check out this challenges sketch-
I love simple sketches, they give you the most possibilities… what I mean by that is that you can do something super simple like I did today OR you could add some busy or patterned style background and then all elements to your card that will take it over the top!  The variety is endless! 
I decided to really focus on the pattern of the chevron, and went with a single pattern strip instead of a ribbon.  But I did throw in a few of my signature embellishments… LOVE THEM RHINESTONES!
 I love this NEW sentiment set, Chalk Talk, that will be available in the NEW catalog! It is an awesome set and you will LOVE to see the coordinating items that are made for this set!!  I decided to go with Calypso Coral and a NEW In-Color Crisp Cantaloupe, LOVE these two together!!!
You HAVE to pop over Hand Stamped Sentiments and take a stab at our sketch challenge, it is SUPER fun and will get your creative mind working!


  1. Major prettiness, especially with your colored rhinestones :) I wonder why I have never used that trim die on a card? It looks so good! Love the fresh, new color and the new stamp set!

  2. I’m loving your monochromatic card. Coral always seems to loud for me, but I’m digging it being paired with Cantaloupe. …and your comments always bring a smile to my face-thank you!!

  3. Gorgeous! Girl, you mastered “clean and simple.” I adore this card!!
