Stamping From The Heart

 I was in the mood for a little challenge, so first I popped over to see what sort of challenge Shelli (Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!) had posted this month on her blog.  A color challenge! And the interesting part is you can choose any color combination you want from the fabulous new Color Coach! I love that thing! I finally landed on this combo: Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive. Then I buzzed on over to this week's Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO151). I love how it turned out. It's a clean and simple card that comes together quickly too.  Ta Da!

  • The Watercolor Trio stamp set will take you from novice watercolorer to "pro" instantly. It's not really cheating, it just seems like it. Your secret is safe with me!
  • Stampin' Write markers save the day on this little number. Use them directly on the stamp to color in all areas, then huff (breathe) on the stamp to remoisten the inks and quickly stamp the image.
  • Textured card stock adds subtle texture to this project without being distracting.  NEW: Our 12" x 12" paper is available in color collection assortments or in individual color packages containing smooth and textured cardstock.
  • The Modern Label punch does double duty here. The Old Olive label is cut in half and placed on either end of the white label. A little sponging with Old Olive gives the final touch to my greeting.
This gorgeous stamp set and the elegant satin ribbon are both featured in the Summer Mini Catalog, which expires August 31. If you've still got some items on your wish list, now is the time to order. And if you are like me and LOVE our satin ribbon, you'll want to stock up now on Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue. These colors are only available until the end of August.
