A Cure For The Monday Blues ... On Tuesday

Have you seen the Cure for Monday Blues Challenge over at Fill Your Paper with The Breathings of Your {Heart}? Every Monday a new inspiration photo is offered as inspiration and every Monday I see it and want to create something! They are awesome inspiration photos! For some reason, likely due to the fact that I see them on Monday and Monday is, well, Monday, I never get around to actually creating something, so this time I DID IT! I got some new Winnie & Walter stamps in the mail and when I saw them, that photo came to mind and I HAD to combine the two!



Two words folks. Two words: Mint and Gold.

Yup. I was pretty  much in love. So in love, in fact, that I actually created not one, but TWO cards based on this inspiration photo using the V for Chevron and The Big, The Bold, You sets from Winnie and Walter.

Thanks for Everything Chevron


I stamped the solid chevron and the open chevron alternately with mint ink. I then went back in with the open chevron and gold ink to add a touch of gold. The sentiment is stamped in black with a few metallic gold dots to finish off the look.

Using the same basic supplies, I came up with a second card in the same color scheme. I was going to choose my favorite to post, but that simply wasn't happening. I kind of loved them both. THUS, a two card post on this fine Tuesday morning. Suffer me if you will.

Chevron Congrats


For this card I chose an even simpler design. I stuck with simply a single solid chevron and, rather than stamping the gold, I used my gold Wink of Stella brush to add a slightly heavier gold line around the chevron. I stamped the sentiment directly over it and added a single, wood star as an accent. This card makes me happy.

So, there you have it! Two fun cards based on this great challenge using some super awesome stamps! You can find all of the supplies I used in the links below.

Have a Happy!
