I love these animal friends from the Barnyard Babies set. I’ve tried watercoloring them, but I like the results best when I use Stampin’ Write markers to highlight their features. Pool Party and Island Indigo are one of my favorite color combinations.
We made this card at my #ImBringingBirthdaysBack class earlier this month, and I made a few extra for my personal use when everyone was finished. I think the Silver Glimmer paper balloons are the perfect amount of bling.
The Stampin’ Up! color range includes a number of tonal combinations. I kept the base colors Whisper White and Basic Gray, and experimented with the accent colors. This is Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride (oh, I miss Crisp Cantaloupe! Do you think we’ll have a color refresh this year?)
The diagonal stripe comes from the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper stacks. There’s a lot of bang for the buck in these fat pads of 12 x 12 patterned paper!
Yellow and grey are a very trendy color combination. I paired So Saffron with Crushed Curry for this Buttercup version of my card.
If you look closely, you’ll see that I used both colors of marker in this example. Making a batch of one style of cards leaves lots of room for experimenting!
For this last sample, I used the same Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride combination but used the softer, more subtle Blushing Bride stripe for the DSP background. This one seems more like a baby card to me as a result.
Seriously. Have you ever seen such a contented cow?
What’s your favorite Stampin’ Up! color combination? Which of these do you like the best?
