Well, I had to cancel my stamp camp with my ladies on Wednesday due to an illness but I am going to reschedule it again sometime soon. Therefore, I can’t show you the cards we made quite yet. Hopefully, it will be next week!
Instead I wanted to show you a card that uses crazy colors. First of all I used the stamp set called Paradise Palms along with the coordinating dies called Palms. This is a bundle that was in the retiring January – June Mini Catalog. It is being carried over into the 2022/2023 Annual Catalog but you will not be able to get the bundle discount once the Mini retires so if you like this bundle you could save 10% if you purchase it before July 1st.
Most palm trees are green (as you know) but I decided I wanted to try different colors and chose one of the new InColors called Tahitian Tide. I am sure they have palm trees in Tahiti so what better color to use that that one! Tahitian Tide is such a fun, bright color and it goes well with a lot of the other colors Stampin’ Up!® offers.
The second color I chose was Sahara Sand. I don’t think they have palm trees in the desert but it is a great neutral color that goes with just about everything. So, I first stamped the background palm trees in Sahara Sand. Then I added the sand dune beneath the trees. Next I cut out the Tahitian Tide palm tree top with a Sahara Sand trunk and layered that on top of the smaller trees. I cut the fence out of Tahitian Tide card stock and layered that at the bottom. Next, I figured if I was using crazy colors I would not use a yellow for the sun. Instead I picked Pale Papaya. Then I stamped the sentiment.
As an add on, I cut out the little dots in Pale Papaya card stock using a new die that is coming soon to make the coconuts. After I adhered them, I wish I hadn’t but it was too late. I think the card would have looked better without them.
