Design Team Challenge Day!

Good Morning all you lovely bloggers out there! The Design Team Challenge for today is Monochromatic.

This challenge was taken on by two of us at Riley and Company, Michelle and me!  Ok - it was an excuse to play with Riley - not too difficult of a challenge to take on huh? I love this little guy!  First up - Michelle totally out did herself folks!

Although this cards looks difficult - it's really not! She used a 5 x 7 card base so she could get more, as Michelle calls it, "stuff" on the card! She used Nesties to cut out all the shapes, and Copics to color Riley in. You can't see it very well in the pciture but the hat, the pot of gold and the shamrock are popped up! The pot of gold has Crystal lacquer and gold Stickles! The Shamrock has green Stickles!

Now - for the adorable flower, she used the I-Top to make a brad out of the same cardstock as the base! I love that tool! A little rock Candy on the flower to make it gently sparkle, and some assembly and tah - dah! Adorable card!

Next up are some treats that I made for my kid's Valentine Party! After all, when you own a stamp company you can't very well let your children go to school with store bought Valentines now can you??

Did I do well on the monochromatic theme? Not so much - but hey, pink is a shade of red right? These are sooooo simple! Just cut out a heart or two with Nesties, glue them together and punch a couple holes for the lollipop. Then, stamp and color Riley with Copics (Graham actually helped me color - there were 64 of them!) and attach him with foam dots! Don't forget the "TO, From" on the back!

For the lollipop covers, skip the holes and foam dots! I used glue dots to attach the cover to the Blow Pop.

Yeah..... they are going to have the coolest Valentines in the class! I hope you enjoyed the challenge - make sure you check out the other designers blogs for more fun stuff!
