Welcome to week 6 of the weekly Color Challenge over at the Utah Diva’s International Blog. I can’t believe we have been doing this for 6 weeks already – it feels like we just started.
So for this weeks color challenge we had a whole lot of color – Rose Red, Concord Crush, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. Oh my….what to do with that many different colors. I thought – thank goodness there is a green in there, I can always do flowers again. But I wanted to do something besides flowers – so I spent several days mulling it over until I finally came to a decision. To make a set of monochromatic cards – but now to choose a set with 5 different images that I could use – I wanted one stamp set, one layout, and each card a different color. I pulled out several different ones and finally decided to use Cute by the Inch – a Level 2 Hostess Stamp Set in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog. It has 9 images – 10 would have worked better, but 9 will do.
Ta-Da – my set of mini cards using the Cute by the Inch set. The whole set is inside a Fancy Favor box – cut using the Thick Window Sheets.
This was the first time I had used these thick window sheets – and boy they are thick – just like those thick plastic boxes you can buy to put treats in. I used Sticky Strip to assemble my box.
Here is a close up of the box with all the cards and envelopes inside.
I tied a piece of Old Olive Satin ribbon around the outside and added a tag to the front.
Here is a close up of one of the cards. There are 2 of each color except Olive that is why I chose to use the Old Olive ribbon around the box. I probably should just add a 10th card to make it equal and double one of the images.
These mini cards are 2-3/4″ square cards. The white mat is 2-1/2″ and the colored embossed panel is 2″ square. The images are stamped on Whisper White and punched out with the 1-1/4″ square punch. The tag on the front of the box was layered with a 1-3/8″ square that was punched.
That’s my interpretation. Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
