Blues and greens – my favorite combination


If I had to choose only one color combination to work with it forever would be blue with green:

Pool Party Vellum Florets

  • Fabulous Florets, Creative Elements, My Friend and Curly Cute stamp sets
  • Whisper White and Pool Party card stock
  • Vellum card stock
  • Pool Party, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade Classic ink pads
  • Rhinestone Jewels

Love these stamps, love this technique, love this look!  More masking – yep, you’ll see this again – and some vellum too.  My cards were starting to have a “same-same” feeling to them and I’ve been looking for ways to switch them up.  New colors certainly help, and of course new stamps always make a big difference, but I wanted a different feeling.

Finding a new layout always makes a difference.  There are loads of sources for new sketches and many of them have challenges – Mojo Monday is one of my favorites.  Sometimes a sketch seems to fall into place, and other times it becomes a battle, but new sketches are a great way to bring some freshness to your projects.

I like the trimmed edge on this card, making the floral collage into one giant focal point.  Don’t be intimidated because it’s just not that hard!  It’s a quick way to give your card new perspective.
