New Stampin’ Up In- Colors are always fun but also takes some time to get used to. When I first saw the colors, I thought they looked nice but wasn’t in love. Then I started to play with them and really started to fall in love. You all know I love Pink so Flirty Flamingo is super fun. I have been really surprised that Peekaboo Peach has been a favorite of mine! I didn’t really think I would love that color as much as I do but I think it is because we don’t have anything close to that color. The other 2 colors, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim have been lots of fun together. They are the perfect man card color combination!!!
For this card, I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the dots from the Timeless Textures Stamp Set all over the background in all 3 colors – Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, and Peekaboo Peach. One thing you want to keep in mind when stamping a background is to fall off the cardstock. You want the pattern to look like it continues on rather than just being in the middle of your card. Then I punched out circles in each of the colors with the 2″ Circle Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. I added all of the circles to the card front, overlapping a bit. Then for the greeting, I used the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set! I stamped the border in Sweet Sugarplum, the little arrow in Flirty Flamingo and the greeting in Peekaboo Peach. Thank goodness for photopolymer stamps so you can see exactly where you are stamping! I punched out the greeting with the Classic Label Punch and added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Remember you can use the outside border of the Dimensionals and just trim off the amount that you need. Those thin little border pieces are perfect for a skinny little greeting like this. To finish off the card, I added a few pop of bling with Rhinestones! Love it!!!
This card could be used for lots of different occasions and with different color combinations. Let me know in the comments below what 3 colors you would use! I would love to hear your favorite combos so I can try them out as well!
