Field Flowers Stampin’ Up! Style!

By | 2 July, 2013

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Crushed Curry given how much I loved More Mustard.  Well, my verdict is in and I love it!  I really love the color refresh that Stampin’ Up! did with this new Annual Catalog.  I feel like the color families make so much more sense now.

Of course, I do think there are a couple of colors missing.  I would love to see a deep hunter green for evergreen trees.  I also feel like there are a couple of yellows missing.  A super bright yellow and a buttery yellow (like my living room and kitchen walls…ahh!).  Here is the array of yellow’s that Stampin’ Up! has:

yellowsThis is the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set with a sentiment from Happy Day.  Very simple card, perfect for a beginner!  You can see the range of yellows:  Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Summer Starfruit and So Saffron.  These are interesting yellows and the make amazing accents to other colors.

For this card, I’ve used four basic colors:  Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Old Olive and Crushed Curry!  Notice the Crushed Curry just serves as an accent to the ink in the image.  I feel like just a touch peeking out here and there really makes the colors of the card really pop.

    I appreciate your thoughtful ideas and opinions. I really liked how you stamped the flowers in crushed curry and pumpkin pie! It made the flowers look real. I wouldn’t have thought to do that. Thank you
