Monochromatic inspiration

The new catalog uses a monochromatic theme for the pages that begin each new “chapter” of stamps, and the color theme for the All Natural section is neutrals.  It really inspired me when I saw it, and although all the stamps used on that page were new I wanted to recreate that feeling.  I looked through my stamps (never mind how many there are, I’m sure I’ll need new ones!!) and found the look I was seeking:

Inspired by Neutrals

  • Wood Grain, Elements of Style, Inspired by Life and Define Your Life stamp sets
  • Naturals Ivory, River Rock, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (Kraft) and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and River Rock Classic ink pads
  • Crop-a-dile, Jumbo Eyelet and Linen Thread

Did you see that little scrap of River Rock?  I have a folder with just a few scraps that I was — you guessed it — hoarding jealously.  Now I can use them up!  As of July 1st, River Rock is back in the family.  I’ll admit that this Color Renovation is taking a little bite out of my stamping budget, but if it means that colors like Baja Breeze and River Rock are back  in the palette I’ll work with it.  I can make a budget and stick with it.  It’s not like I have to have everything all at once.  Really.  I don’t.  Not at all.

Excuse me, I have to go.  My hypnotist appointment is soon.  I don’t need it all at once…I don’t need it all at once…I don’t need it all at once…
