Blue and green…my favorite combination


You didn’t think I’d show you all the cards I made in one post, did you?

Friends Never Fade in Marina

  • Friends Never Fade, Inspired by Nature and Wonderfully Worn stamp sets
  • Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist cardstock
  • Greenhouse Garden Designer Series Paper
  • Marina Mist,  Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip classic ink pads
  • Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon (retired, substitute Early Espresso)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals; brayer

I think I love the monochromatic designs in the Greenhouse Gardens Designer Series Papers as much as if not more than the beautiful multi-colored pages.  And in case you haven’t figured it out, blue and green is my all-time favorite color combination ever.  It doesn’t matter which blue or which green – but don’t go trying to find some hideous combination and make me look ridiculous, ok?  You know what I mean.

This is my debut of the Wonderfully Worn background stamp.  You know I’m a tone-on-tone kinda girl, and this stamp is perfect for adding just a little depth to a layer without being distracting.    Just to be thorough, let me remind you that the best way to cover a background stamp is to brayer it – it’s the easiest method for getting an even coat of ink.

You could so cut that yellow center out with the 3/4″ circle punch, but it wasn’t doing it for me so I trimmed it with my paper snips.
