Trio of Color: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Happy Monday!
As you know, each week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge team reveals a new challenge. This week's challenge is a color challenge. (Those are my favorites!) Except this week we're asking you to use a trio of colors.
It sounds tricky, but it isn't. I just picked my three favorite inks and used those as my inspiration to create a Happy Mail Folio. 

I created a card, but also a little folder to contain it and bits of new and vintage ephemera. 
The card was so simple, and yet so freakin fun that I actually giggled out loud when I made it. I used Alphabet Dies from Avery Elle to cut my sentiment from an original vintage photograph. 


Show us your Trio of Color. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could receive a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be in our designer spotlight.

Ticket Please: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Happy Monday! This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "Tickets, Please!." My teammate Sandra came up with this challenge theme. Isn't she clever? I looked through my stash and found lots and lots of tickets. American Crafts usually includes a ticket or two in their ephemera packs (which I love!) and I have several ticket stamps as well. So you probably do too!
But after all of that ticket sorting, I chose to cut a ticket with a Lawn Fawn die. Sounds crazy, doesn't it? Yes, I needed yet another ticket because I was so excited to discover that the sentiment stamp fit in there PERFECTLY! A happy coincidence. I love those!
The card is an odd size because I liked that the background words are large, but aren't too prominent. I found the brass dog on a junkin' trip and he followed me home and photobombed the card.:)

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Citrus Happy Mail with Fuse Tool

I have this "thing" about crafting tools. I LOVE them! So I was eager to try the FUSE tool and play around with it. This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "Citrus with a Twist." I took it literally and created a clear citrus postcard that's also a shaker.
The Fuse tool was easy to use and lots of fun, too!

All of the internal elements are creating a lemon/lime shake-up in my clear postcard. How cool is that!?! So the postal carrier doesn't hate me....I affixed the address label to the outside. (It hasn't been completely filled out for privacy reasons.)
