A Saffron Pear by the Pool…


I’ve spent a couple of days since my return from Merry Olde England playing with color and today it’s all about my favorite combination:  shades of yellow, blue and green.  Specifically, I’ve chosen So Saffron, Pear Pizazz and Pool Party:Maui Stamper Work of Art

  • Stamps:  Work of Art
  • Color Palette:  So Saffron, Pear Pizazz and Pool Party, plus a little Coastal Cabana
  • Accessories:  Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Candy Dots, Large oval punch, Oval Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Maui Stamper Work of ArtThe chevrons in the Work of Art stamp set are super easy to line up.  I generally have serious issues with that sort of alignment, but this as a happy surprise.  I also broke all the color-coordinating rules in this one – sort of.  I used Coastal Cabana Ink and Pool Party card stock.  I chose So Saffron ink and a Candy Dot but I used the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding.  Walkin’ on the wild side, I guess.  Speaking of…

Maui Stamper St. Edwards Church Stow on the WoldWe spent the first week that we were in England in the Cotswolds, exploring a different town each day.  We’d seen a photo of this door, and when we were in Stow-on-the-Wold my son said he thought it was nearby.  We walked around the perimeter of St. Edward’s Church and there it was – how could we not take a photo?

It wasn’t as cold as we make it look, but remember, we’re from Maui.  I put on a sweater when it gets to 76°.  The weather was lovely, although I’m pretty sure it drizzled off and on this day.  There were some glorious views through the clouds, though:
