Big Thanks with Layered Stripes

During the early days of my love affair with Stampin’ Up!’s colors, I was dedicated to the family of bold and bright colors – the brighter, the better. I had birthday cards, thank you cards and congratulations cards in mind so I always reached for the uplifting, bright tones in the color family at that time. Over the years, I’ve bounced back-and-forth between all of the color families – sometimes I want warm tones, and sometimes I want soft tones. Today’s card reaches back to the bright tones I first fell in love with. Here’s my bold thank you card:

My card features two stamps I love so much. The sentiment is from the Big Hooray stamp set, and the background is from the Layered Stripes background stamp. Here’s a look at the Big Hooray stamp set:

Layered Stripes, Stampin Up! 160515This fun background stamp is bold and busy in Granny Apple Green against a Basic White panel. It would also be effective (and less bold) if stamped with Granny Apple Green on a Granny Apple Green panel. There are a million ways to showcase this striped pattern – that makes it so fun!

I stamped the sentiment on my card with Bermuda Bay and tucked a little Daffodil Delight panel behind it to pull in a third color. If you like this mix of Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:

  1. Love that modern stripe and simple design!

  2. I love this bright and fun card with this color combination. Enjoy your day!

  3. Very cool background and yes, bright!

  4. The striped background stamp looks exactly like something YOU would construct either out of DSP panels or by positioning and repositioning a stamp with a section of stipes over and over. Love it! Modern but at the same time, retro. <3

  5. What a fun card today and love the colors you chose! Simple, clean, and certain to bring a smile. Great inspiration !
