All Squared Away

Hello everyone.  It is time again for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me.  This time we have a color challenge.

Aren’t these fun colors?  I would never have put them together but I love them!

Here is my card:

Stampin Up All Squared Away

I decided to use the stamp set called All Squared Away.  This stamp set has coordinating dies called Floral Squares (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle!).  This is such a fun bundle because the stamps create the background and the dies fit over the top.

To make this card I first stamped the background using Coastal Cabana, Fresh Freesia and Night Of Navy Ink.  I “fussy” cut them out (although it was pretty simple and not fussy at all since they are all squares).  Then I cut out the floral frames using the coordinating dies in Basic White card stock and layered them on top of the squares using Multipurpose Glue.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy ink and cut them out using some circle punches.

At this point I decided that the card was just too white.  I am one of those people that saves scraps of card stock so I had some 1/4″ scraps saved and adhered them to the top and bottom of the card.  I liked it much better with more color.

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using these colors together.  This is my favorite part of our challenges because we don’t know what the others are going to post ahead of time.

  1. Such a pretty card and you’re right about these colors being perfect for the All Squared Away set. I love your balance of the colors and images


  2. This card is a perfect birthday card, Susan! I love the circle/sentiment where a fourth square would be, the extra strips of color, and the balance of the white against the colored squares. And these colors are perfect together, too!
