Color Me Monday (5-25) on Tuesday

Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday choice this week did not disappoint! I had so much fun creating with this color palette: (Close To My Heart colors) Pansy Purple, Petal, New England Ivy and White Daisy. You can see samples of those colors here in the first photo in this post.

I created 3 cards and a layout using this color scheme.

On all 3 cards I used the full intensity of the color palette. Close To My Heart supplies used on the cards: Paper Garden Level 2 paper pack (X7094B), Enchanted Level 2 paper pack (X7087B), New England Ivy cardstock (1282), White Daisy cardstock (1385), Black stamp pad (Z2105), Petal stamp pad (Z2161), Pansy Purple stamp pad (Z2141), New England Ivy stamp pad (Z2135), Cottage Floral stamp set (set of 10, B1306), Delight in Everything stamp set (set of 10, D1204), Thank You stamp set (set of 19, D1361), Argyle Backgrounds stamp set (set of 4, D1325), Autumn buttons (Z1283), Love Letters rubons (Z1098), Neutral Embroidery Floss Assortment (Z1096), waterbrush, Winter Cozy Assortment brads (Z1113), White Daisy Collection accessories (Z1136), Corner Rounder (Z578), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151).

You will notice on the layout that I used lighter values of the colors. This is easy to do with our textured cardstock because the back side is a lighter shade of the same color. Cool beans! You can also tell that I love chipboard by the extensive use of Dimensional Elements on this layout (flowers, borders, fresh shapes). I tend to use lots of chipboard on my creations. Close To My Heart products used on layout: White Daisy textured cardstock (X5671), Amethyst textured cardstock (X5682 for Spring Harmony combo pack), Petal textured cardstock (X5670 for Winter Cozy combo pack), New England Ivy textured cardstock (X5669 for Autumn Harvest combo pack), Petal stamp pad (Z2161), New England Ivy stamp pad (Z2135), Round Sponge (Z697), Neutral Embroidery Floss Collection (Z1096), Holiday Buttons (Z1285), Photo Clips (Z292), Dimensional Elements Perennials (Z1139), Dimensional Elements Fresh Shapes (Z1019), Dimensional Elements Borders (1156), Hodge Podge Color Ready Alphabet (X1406), Corner Rounder (Z578).

I had fun! I decided to incorporate a few challenges into each of the projects as well. See what you think: I used the Mojo Monday sketch for week 88 to make the card on the top right, I used the CPS sketch #117 for the card on the left, and then just did my own thing on the card on the bottom right. I used the Creative Scrappers sketch #53 to make the right side of my layout.

As always, feel free to click on any photo to see it in a larger size. Have a great rest of the day.
