Mother’s Love for Sunday AND Monday (challenges)!

Mother’s Love for Sunday AND Monday (challenges)!

I know, I know!  I have been a little MIA-ish lately.  Sorry—no excuses–just sorry!

I know that YOU know that there is a new Stampin’ Up! catalog around the corner.  I have seen it (altho online only—and we all know that is NOT the best way to truly enjoy it).  What I have seen–I like!!!   And I can’t wait to get playing with some new fun stuff.

That said, the “old catalogs” are not quite done yet and I want to give the products in them their due.  Today, I combined 2 different challenges (One from “Sunday” and one from “Monday”)and came up with a sample featuring s set that is not quite done yet, Mother’s Love:

Here is the sketch for the first challenge, Mojo Monday:


And then I found this challenge at Sunday Stamps:

So here is what i came up with :

The colors I chose to use were Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, and Smokey Slate.  The weird thing is, that Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon (which, sadly,  is retiring) looks different colored in this photograph than it does in real life!  It must be one of those “Is the dress blue or gold?” things!

The little bit of “bling” I added was the In Color (soon to be “OUT colors”—Kidding—Coastal Cabana will never go out of style!)   sequins.  Here is a close up:

Finally–I don’t know about you but I tend to buy (too much!) Designer Paper and then am hesitant to use it….just in case!  Well, my goal going forward is to use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without….Ok–truth be told:  I found that quote on Pinterest.  In any case, that is what I am going to attempt to do because–as it turns out—I have seen the new Stampin’ Up! catalog (sorry to rub that in again!) and the NEW Designer Series Paper is even better than the old one!!!  Yup!   So I am going to use up this paper and get myself the new one! Besides, nothing dresses up an envelope like lining it!
