Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Color Challenge Week 7 Parakeet Party

Welcome back for another week of the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Color Challenge. We are already up to be Week 7 and this week we have been challenged to create a card using Parakeet Party, one of the 2022-2024 In Colors. This wonderful, vibrant green was a fun challenge to work with and I hope you like the card design I came up with.
When I was looking at ideas to showcase this bright green, I decided to use the Jungle Pals stamp set and coordinating Jungle Pals Dies, both Sale-a-bration products that you can earn free with a qualifying order. I also paired them with products from the Zoo Crew Suite Collection from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog to create a fun and whimsical birthday card. To add some texture to the design, I used one of the designs from the 2022-2024 In Color 6"x 6" Designer Series Paper. I wanted to keep the design clean and simple and showcase how to create layers of color with this bold and pretty green.

I am always looking for ways to create fun, cheerful birthday cards that will help to brighten someone's special day. When I saw the cute images in the Jungle Pals stamp set, I just knew I had to use it for this card design. Parakeet Party is the perfect color for the alligator and I used the Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends Combo Pack to color the image and add some subtle shading. I also used the Stampin' Blends Markers to add some color to the grass along with blending some Parakeet Party Classic ink onto the Parakeet Party cardstock to add some depth and texture to the die cuts. The adorable singing turtle is actually one of images in the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper and I die cut it out with one of the coordinating dies from the Zany Zoo Dies. The sentiment label was die cut with the Nested Essentials Dies from Basic White cardstock and I stamped the sentiment and music notes images with Tuxedo Black ink onto the label. For the card front, I chose one of the designs from the 2022-2024 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper, and I love how it adds texture to the background of the card. I added the label to the center of the card front and then layered the grass along the bottom of the label. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the alligator and turtle on top of the layer of grass to add some dimension to the card design. To finish off the card, I added several Silver Sequins for a subtle touch of bling. Don't you just love how cute this card is? So have I convinced you to give Parakeet Party a try on your next project. Let me know what you think.
