I am loving this great coordinating Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and Flowering Fields Stamp Set found on page 12 of the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
Colour is such a motivator and can really set a occasion. A room paint blue feels cool and tranquil and as for a room painted in neutral tones can feel organic and rustic. It’s not a coincidence that Coca Cola packaging is in Red giving the feeling of fun, energy and is eye catching.
Selecting the colour of your card front is equally as important to set the mood. Traditionally Christmas cards are created with primary tones such as Red and Green. Metallic colours are often used for a sense of glamour where as White for it’s clean and crisp appearance.
You will find the card samples I have made using Stampin’ Up!s Vintage Leaves stamp set great examples of this. I stayed with a similar layout to make the comparison much more obvious.
Have you ever stared at a stamp set blankly waiting for an idea to jump into your head but there’s nothing, not a hint of an idea? We all have it at times, doubting our selves, doubting our creativity. What’s the answer?
Here are 5 ideas that have worked for me. Just one of these ideas may work for you or maybe a combinations of two or more.
I wouldn’t say Yellow is my favourite colour and I have to be in a special kind of mood to wear it. I have challenged myself to use colours and colour combos I would usually avoid and to be honest after working on christmas cards for months it nice to get away from the reds, greens, gold and silver. Check my Photo Gallery to see some samples.
I’m glad you asked! As I want to start a conversation with you. I do care what you do but I care more if you enjoy it. Me? I’m a business owner. I work my own hours, I enjoy the perks of owning my own business, I put smiles on people’s faces all while never missing a family event and still holidaying once or twice a year.
I also get to do what I love. I create. I create beautiful things. Beautiful things that I love to share with others. I also want to help others create.
Just love when I have new stamping supplies to play with. What I really love is that I know how well my new Stampin’ Up! supplies will coordinate with my older stamping supplies. This card sample I’ve made is a good example of that.
