Color Dare #147 ~ Monochromatic

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week the Color Dare #147 challenge is Monochromatic and you get to choose the color.

11406844_10153070820969440_7347783854750262705_nI got a little carried away and actually designed three cards each using a different color choice.  For all the cards I embossed white cardstock using the quatrefoil embossing folder Z1926.  Then using some metal dies I have I cut the inserts for each card.   The first one I designed, I chose Lagoon as my color.

I really like the hostess rewards stamp set Paper Bird so I knew this was the stamp set I wanted to work with.  I stamped the bird twice then cut out the wing and popped it up using thin foam tape.  I used Aqua dots to add a little extra to the card.

For the last one I stayed with the butterfly but changed the color to Pixie.  I used the pink shimmer trim and one of the flowers from the Brushed assortment.

  1. Your cards are beautiful. I love the texture that the embossing adds to your cards.

  2. Your cards are simple, but stunning. I’d have to pick the pixi as my favorite, just because I LOVE pink!

  3. Great use of this stamp set, Cat! I like that you made different cards each featuring a different color. I almost did that, but ran out of time.

  4. I love the way you showcased the hostess stamp set and how you managed to change the feel of each beautiful card!
