Monochromatic Thinking of You for PP429

It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week, the lovely LeAnne  is hosting a Clean and Simple Monochromatic challenge.  Clean and simple cards have minimal layers and embellishments, plenty of open space, and are simple and uncluttered.

monochromatic thinking of youI always have trouble creating Clean and Simple cards, but I love trying.  For me, today’s card is pretty clean…and definitely quick and easy! I hope you enjoy it!

Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

For my monochromatic look, I opted on shades of pink…specifically Blushing Bride.  A look of elegance was achieved by embossing a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  A frosted look was achieved by sweeping over the surface with a Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad.

The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede.  It was cut out using the smallest Rectangle Stitched framelit and then “popped” up on the card using dimensionals.  By switching out the sentiment, this card layout and design would perfect for so many occasions:  weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, get well and more!

  1. Ann, the white craft over the top of the embossing looks gorgeous. It really does add another layer of dimension to that fabulous background. The shades of pink are so soft and feminine. Love it

  2. Ann, this is just gorgeous! Elegant and classy! Love the pearls and the white ink on the embossing! Just WOW! Have a great weekend, My Friend! XX

  3. This is lovely Ann – very you, apart from the CAS part, although you totally nailed it with this pretty number! Love the addition of the frosting, this adds great detail along with those signature pearls.

  4. I love your monochromatic card Ann, it is beautiful. I never would have thought to add the white ink. Oh wait , I still need to order the Whisper White ink pad. 🙂 Love the pretty pink pearls. Thank you for sharing your tutorial.

  5. Wow, I love this. Totally unexpected with the title of the post. Amazing textural look and look at those pearls!

  6. Very pretty! Loving that fabulous texture although, like you, CAS cards are not my “jam.” The important thing is that we TRY, right? LOL!

  7. Admittedly, I have not bern totally convinced that I need this EF, that is until I saw your card…now I love it and will order it….TFS your creativity…….this is a gorgeous mono card and I must order this EF today and CASE your card idea!!! Have a great week!!!

  8. I totally get the problem with CAS cards. Some people will allow dry embossing and “jewels”, others will not. It is so confusing for me. In any event, I love your card and what you did with the colors.

  9. Ann, Your monochromatic look is fantastic! What a great idea to use the Craft ink for the frosted look!
