New Colour Combinations

I have to be honest. I was very sad to see such a change in the colour palette of SU but excited at the same time of new colour combination possibilities. So, with that being said check out the three new cards I created with the "New Colour Collections".

Surfing Dude!

So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip

Stamp set: Extreme Surfboard

Used brayer on gloss white to create a sunset backdrop against the water. Roughed up the edges of Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze.

Accessories: Chocolate Chip corduroy button, 1" circle punch (So Saffron faux suede technique), and hemp twine (roughed up)

Happy Mom Day!
Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip
Stamp set: Messages for Mom
Accessories: 1" Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon,
Filigree, Rhinestone Brad Clear, Blender Pen and Dazzling Diamonds

A Spring Happy Birthday!
Melon Mamba, Regal Rose, Old Olive and Whisper White
Stamp set: Eastern Bloom and A Little Birthday Cheer
Accessories: Simple Flower Embosslits, Markers, 1/16" handheld circle punch, 5/8" Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Brad Clear and Stampin Dimenstionals (under flower).
(This card will be one of the three we create at the April 25th Stamp & Stock class.)

Make these cards definitely helped me over come the shock of the colour changes. So, get out the colours you already have that are in the New Colour Collection and create a card or scrapbook page. Trust me it is very therapeutic.
