Papertrey’s Make It Monday #294: Monochrome Color Pop

Long time no see!  I have been away from my crafting space for so long!  My spare time has been taken up with kids, work, and getting a house ready to sell.  But I’ve been craving some crafting time and wanted to take a stab at this week’s Papertrey Make It Monday challenge of making a monochrome card with a pop of color.

I pulled out my Winter Woods stamp set to make some winter cards.  Once we swing into holiday cards, I seem to forget all about winter birthdays and I have quite a few to send out every year.  I kept the background soft with white birch trees on soft stone so that the pretty birds would really pop.  The supplies are listed below.  Hope you are enjoying everyone’s pretty cards.  Happy crafting!


  • Cardstock: Soft Stone (Papertrey); Smokey Shadow (Papertrey)
  • Stamps: Winter Woods (Papertrey); Keep It Simple: Birthdays II(Papertrey)
  • Ink:  Fresh Snow (Papertrey); Smokey Shadow (Papertrey); Versamark
  • Dies: Contemp0 Birds (Memory Box)
  • Accessories: Watercolors; White Embossing Powder;

Papertrey’s 9th Anniversary Day 8 Challenge – Fortune Teller, Papertrey Create Along With Us Challenge

So my fortune teller told me to use Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky and Simply Chartreuse for my color combination for Papertrey’s 9th Anniversary Day 8 Challenge.  I am also including this card for the Create Along With Us for Papertrey’s typical Monday Challenge.  Got to love when you can make 1 card that works for two challenges.

I decided to use my favorite Papertrey designers card from the Spring Woods set.  Kay Miller is amazing!  Love what she does with colors and layout.  My card doesn’t do her justice but it was limited by the darn fortune teller colors. Supplies are listed below and I am including a link to Kay’s card here.



  • Cardstock:  Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey)
  • Ink: Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, and Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey); Chocolate Chip (Stampin Up)
