Solving the Delma of Which Colors To Use?

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 8.52.24 AM

We all struggle with color combos here and there.  I tend to get in a rut and use the same color combos over and over.  To bring excitement back into my color combos I will do the following google search “pinterest color palettes” and guess what, there are over 17 thousand color palettes on there for your inspiration.  Awesome right?

Say I want to do a floral card.

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 8.53.54 AMDSC_0002

I will look for a palette with flowers and colors which make me swoon.  I love the soft tones of the above palette so I pull out the Stampin’ Up! colors I have closest to the inspiration palette.  Don’t get hung up on them not being exact, the color palette is for inspiration only remember.

Now I have my colors picked out I am not overwhelmed with all the color choices I have and it’s so much easier to select the color I want to use for each element on my stamped panel, Designer Series paper and card stock layers.

I hope this post inspires you to search out a color palette that has you excited to grab your ink, stamps and paper.

Floating Flower Z Card – Stampin’ Up

Floating Flower

Hello there,

I created this soft flowery “Z” card today.  If you are not familiar with the “Z” card fold, it is so simple and fun to create.  This fold, although simple can really step up your project.

Floating Flower Z Card

I gave this single flower a ripple effect around it.
