I’m in love with Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2017 In Colors – they pair so well with each other and with so many old-and-true colors in our color families. Today I’m sharing a super-simple, clean-and-layered card. There’s a bitty surprise in here, though, so pay close attention. 🙂 Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Two Background Stamps. Background stamps are typically a supporting player on a card, but they can also be the star of the show. In this card, I’ve used TWO background stamps – one in each role. I couldn’t get the look I wanted when I tried to simply stamp the Definitely Dahlia stamp on plain Very Vanilla Paper, so I stamped the Watercolor Wash first (stamped it off once before stamping in here to lightly wash the card front with the image). Then I stamped the dahlia with a fully inked up dahlia. I love the effect – it gave me just the right support underneath the flower.
- It’s Crooked. I know, I know. The sentiment is not as straight as I’d normally want it to be. In this case, though, I’m OK with it being a little askew. Why? Because you are so remarkable that you’ll simply look past my crooked word and continue to gasp at the beauty of this simple card.
- Color Combination. I just love these three colors together – Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. They are each so soft and beautiful. Together they are a soothing combination. If you like them, too, save this:
Stamp Sets: Definitely Dahlia, Watercolor Wash, Remarkable You Papers: Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Very Vanilla Inks: Mint Macaron, So Saffron Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals
