Many Scraps of Blue~Monochromatic projects


I have been looking at all my scraps in a very large color coordinated file holder. It's time to get them used and make way for newer papers and other products. As I was browsing this week through many of my crafty friends blogs and many others, I saw where at Anything Goes Challenge Blog was having a Monochromatic theme. 
Monochrome means - The tints, tones and shades of one color.   
Looking at my huge stash of card stock scraps and the many stashes of background & texture papers (papers with designs), I noticed I had oodles and bacoodles of Blues. I'm guessing I use more blue than any other. 
Today I have decided to do more crafts using mainly my scraps before I open/buy another pack of paper.  My first project I will enter into the Heart to Heart challenge - ALL THAT GLITTERS
As my friend Steph said a while ago....I'm in a blue kind of mode. So here it goes ,the beginning of my Monochromatic projects. TODAY IS BLUE DAY!

 PROJECT#2 
This card I entered into Anything Goes Challenge# 85 Monochrome
Here is a more masculine card. I stamped my own B&T card stock. Used fussy cutting to make a paper embellishment and popped that layer off the other layers. I also stamped the inside of this card. So simple and fast.
