Trio of Color: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, August 30, 2015

Happy Monday!
As you know, each week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge team reveals a new challenge. This week's challenge is a color challenge. (Those are my favorites!) Except this week we're asking you to use a trio of colors.
It sounds tricky, but it isn't. I just picked my three favorite inks and used those as my inspiration to create a Happy Mail Folio. 




I created a card, but also a little folder to contain it and bits of new and vintage ephemera. 
The card was so simple, and yet so freakin fun that I actually giggled out loud when I made it. I used Alphabet Dies from Avery Elle to cut my sentiment from an original vintage photograph. 


Show us your Trio of Color. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could receive a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be in our designer spotlight.

  11. Your little folio assemblage is terrific. Love the commemoratives photo and that the ink matches the stamps. Funny how stamps of this era has those stale, muted tones but that's what I love about them. Just got some red geranium which I think will be outstanding to use with mail art. You've inspired me, as always!

  14. It's always good where there's giggling going on in the craft room! Unless you're just giggling to keep from going insane (which has happened to me before...usually around 2:00 am). But I digress! My point is that this card is really cool and I love all the layers. You always combine things so beautifully. I always look forward to seeing your projects!
