Monday Blues

Good morning everyone and welcome to what I am hoping will be a weekly feature from me.

I have gone with the theme of ‘MONDAY BLUES’ so each Monday I will be sharing a design using various stamp sets but in shades of Blue.

I am sure everyone has Monday Blues after the weekend as they go back to work. I am fortunate to be ‘retired’ so it doesn’t apply to me. 🙂

Today I am using one the new sets which is featured in the new Seasonal Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!. If you would like a copy, please contact me using the link at the top of my page and I will send you one completely Free.

I started by cutting a piece of A4 Marina Mist in half, this gives me two card blanks.

The layer of Night of Navy is cut smaller to show a small border and it has been put through the Big Shot using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.

To this I stamped the lovely 2 step stamp from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. The bottom layer is stamped in Marina Mist and the slightly smaller stamp in Night of Navy creating a watercolour look onto Whisper White Card. Using the Layering Circle Dies to cut out the image and then a a larger die cut using Marina Mist.

For the sentiment, again from the above set,  I chose to use the Layering Ovals Dies stamping onto Whisper White with Marina Mist Ink and matting it onto Marina Mist Card Stock.

I didn’t feel it needed anything else but would like to know what you think.

I will be back again on Thursday to share a new project. I hope you will pop back to see what I have decided to do.
