Monday Madness... Imagine That!


It's time for another My Creative Time "Monday Madness... Imagine That" post, and this week we're having a color challenge, where YOU can join in the fun!  The challenge is to create something with your Imagine (or patterned paper, if you don't own one), using the colors pink, white, black, and gray.

For my project, I made an anniversary card for my parents, who will be celebrating 48 years of marriage next month!  I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" pink card base, scored at 5 1/2".  I used my Imagine to print on strips of pink and white cardstock, using the Black & White Imagine cartridge.  After printing, I cut them to the size I wanted and notched one end. 


 I then adhered them to a 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of dark gray cardstock and stitched across the top of them with black thread.


To make my calendar, I began by using the My Creative Time XL Label Die to cut the pretty shape out of light gray cardstock.  I didn't really like the color against my card, so I sponged over it with some old Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush ink (not the new formula).  I love the soft color this created!  I then stamped the frame and calendar from My Creative Time's Whimsical Calendar Days with black ink.  The calendar has 31 days, but I just covered the 31st with scotch tape while inking up the stamp.  A pretty Teresa Collins brad was just the right accent, and then I popped the whole thing up with dimensional adhesive.


The adorable "Anniversary Wishes" sentiment is from My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.


Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see more fun Imagine projects by Emma and some of the design team.  Also, you'll have one week to join our color challenge!  The pic of the colors above is to get you inspired.
