Pastel Monograms

Are you tired of seeing my JustRite Monogram set yet?  ;)


I'm still creating cards to put into the box of goodies for my MIL's birthday this weekend.  Today, I made a set of 4:


Everything but the card bases were scraps.  I get these awesome $1 Scrap Bags from my local SU demo, and these designer paper strips were already in there, along with scraps of Orchid Opulence and So Saffron cardstock.  All I had to do was cut everything to size. 

I used my new Spellbinders Labels Ten nesties, a circle nestie, and a 1 3/4" round punch to create my horizontal element, as per this sketch here at the Waltzingmouse Challenge
Also got a chance to play with my new Cuttlebug "Organic Flourishes" embossing folders.  They come in a pack of 5 and they are skinny, so you can put one along the edge of a card.  Fun!


I think I need a few more cards for this gift I am putting together...so hope to see you soon!

Happy Stamping,

Colleen

I won't tire of your Just Right stamps if you don't tire of my Verve flowers LOL! Great use of the sketch and I'm drooling at that nestie you have and I don't yet!

Are you kidding?? Couldn't possibly be tired of seeing your monogram set in action! I think that is the neatest thing and you are making the coolest gifts with it. Those scraps of yours are PERFECT for this sketch!! I love your pastel color combo and your new embossing folders, too. What an awesome gift your MIL is getting from you!!

Good that you can use those scraps and the colors you used are just so pretty. I like how you used the Cuttlebug folder down the side. What a labor of love!
