Quickie Mini Monday -- Wonderful Mother

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

I know I keep repeating myself but when I'm pressed for time I automatically reach for my punches. It saves on time and adds dimension when you layer the punched shapes. That's exactly what i did here.

I went for a monochromatic look and I think it also saves on time. Since Stampin' Up! has announced their new Color Collections, I am looking at my colors in a whole new way. I was never fond of Wild Wasabi when it was part of a previous In Color family. But since I've rearranged my stamp pads according to the new Color Collections, I find myself reaching for this color more often than not. Here, it's paired with Certainly Celery Monochromatic DSP, a Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, some half-back pearls from the Pretties Kit. The sentiment is from the Well-Scripted Stamp Set, punched out with Designer Label punch, layered with a Certainly Celery 1 3\8" Circle and a Wild Wasabi Scallop Circle.

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee

J'aurais pas deviné que ces couleurs étaient certainement céleri et Wild Wasabi si tu ne l'avais pas dit....c'est juste pour dire qu'une couleur peut changer pas mal dépendamment des couleurs avec lesquelles on l'agence!! Superbe ta carte!!
