Mojo Monday Sketch and Color Dare Challenge!

What a fun color challenge at the Color Dare this week! Using my two favorite Stampin' Up! greens: Old Olive and Certainly Celery, along with the bright (and retiring) Summer Sun, and Whisper White! I paired this color challenge with the Mojo Monday Sketch #136. Square cards are always fun for me since they are bigger and more, fun stamping and embellishments can be added! My card is 5-1/4" Square and fits perfectly inside the Stampin' Up! Whisper White Square Envelopes (107289). Here's my take on the Mojo Monday sketch this week:
Round or Square? I went with Square and used the Vintage Vogue stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog page 26. This lovely stamp set features 8 wonderful stamps and comes in Wood Mount (117690) OR Clear Mount (118598). This stamp set WILL be in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog - which is great news! After April 30th though, it won't be available again until the catalog release on July 1st! Best to order now so you don't have to wait two months before you can order it! I also entered this project in the OCCC Blossoms Challenge! Flowers are just so fun to stamp, emboss, and decorate with! I found a new challenge blog today thanks to my friend, Stacey! It's called DeNami Design blog they had a Spring Themed Challege, so I entered this card there as well!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • My 'F' monogram and friends stamp is on a 2" Whisper White circle cut with my Circle Scissor Plus! I first stamped it in Summer Sun ink, then on another piece of card stock I stamped it in Old Olive ink, trimmed out with my Paper Snips, and adhered this piece on top of the Summer Sun 'F'. My Certainly Celery Circle is 2-1/8" and the Old Olive Circle is 2-1/4" all layered together!
  • I embossed a piece of Certainly Celery card stock with the Finial Press Embossing folder for some texture and a delicate look!
  • My polka-dot ribbon is actually Crushed Curry 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon with a Filigree brad in the middle! The yellows are so similiar and it looks great with the Summer Sun Corduroy brads!
