Stamp Off Friday Color Challenge
I wanted to use a current Annual Catalog set, since I’ve been focusing on Holiday and Occasions. The beautiful sets in the Annual Catalog that we all loved seven months ago are feeling a little neglected. I chose Mixed Borders.
This set is so fun, because there are several borders in the set with a space in it for the sentiment. You can mix and match the borders and sentiments. I chose this one because it coordinated with the paper – and because I have a special family member’s birthday coming up soon.
In case you don’t see all the colors – there’s Crumb Cake (Neutrals), Night of Navy (Regals), and Daffodil Delight (Brights) in the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). I used Blushing Bride (Subtles)as my card base. I even have three of the soon-to-be-retired In Colors – Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, and Mint Macaron. Let’s hear a shout-out for DSP!
I stamped the border in Basic Black Archival Ink, then colored the flowers with Blushing Bride, Cucumber Crush, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy to coordinate with the paper.
For a final touch, I added a little Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. I love the copper in this suite! And then I thought the banner needed a bit of bling, so I added some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. I think this is my “go-to” sketch lately. It’s so easy and fun, and you can do a lot with it – adding die-cuts or embellishments, dressing it up or down as the occasions calls. And by using DSP, it’s super quick and easy.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
