Home to Roost Card with a Crazy Colour Combination

For today’s card I challenged myself to use some products which are not my favourites. As a starting point I pulled out some So Saffron cardstock, a colour I very very rarely use. This made me think of straw so I pulled out the Home to Roost stamp set from this year’s Sale-A-Bration selection and also the Garden Impressions 6 x 6 DSP stack which I find a little busy with so many colours included.

Here’s what I came up with and actually I quite like it, whowould have thought So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay would work together.

Just a touch of Bermuda Bay has really brought this card to life don’t you think?

Spring Coloured card with Falling for You

Today’s card was originally created as part of a colour challenge on a blog, sadly I only wrote down the colours and not the blog details so can’t enter properly. The colours for the challenge were Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron, if anyone knows what blog challenge this was from please leave me a comment below. So here’s my spring looking card:

Sadly the stamp set Falling for You which I used here has not made it into our next Annual catalogue and is on the retiring list. At the time of writing this its still available so if you want it, don’t wait as its a great stamp set.

I was going for a simple look with this card but think the Wisteria Wonder strips at the bottom would maybe have been better only going a little way across the card. I wanted somewhere to anchor my greeting panel too but think its given the card a harsh look, what do you think?

Anyway hopefully I will have time to play with this set again before its completely gone.
