A Color Coach Combination

Stampin Up Elegant Lines Folder

 

Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso.

Not a color combination I would have reached for on my own. But it is a recommended Creative Combination on the new Stampin’ Up! Color Coach. And I think the colours work well together, don’t you?

This brand new tool is an awesome addition to my stamping. When my creativity is in a rut, I can reach for the Color Coach, select one of the colour combos highlighted and half the card designing work is done. Be sure to add a Color Coach to your next order.

I am loving my new catalogue products. This card uses the new Elegant Lines embossing folder for the Big Shot to add texture to the Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I didn’t want to cover up very much of the cardstock so I created an Early Espresso Scallop Rectangle with the Big Shot Clearlit.

After stamping the "thanks" greeting from Fabulous Phrases, I added a Daffodil Delight flower to the tag. To make the flower,  I punched six circles from Greenhouse Gala designer series paperBoho Blossoms punch.  I scrunched each flower up before layering the punched pieces and making a hole in the middle of the pile. I inserted an Antique Brad to the center and adhered the flower to the card with a stampin’ dimensional.  Right now, these brads are my favorite new catalogue product. So pretty!

I assembled the card and adhered it all together including a length of Daffodil Delight 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.

Hope you like it!

    Beautiful card! I don’t think I would have tried that color combo either, but it looks great. I love the vintage brad in the center of your flower. TFS!
