Stampin’ Up! Neutral Color Palette Thank You

Happy Labor Day everyone!!!

I know for many kids/families school has already begun, but for us in Upstate New York school begins this Thursday.  So Labor Day is always sort of the last goodbye to summer.  It seems like it always goes so fast.

So have fun and be safe!!

I wanted to try a neutral color scheme for today’s card.  I did head over to my Facebook page for some advice.  As you know, Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is gorgeous.

Well, when I flipped over the neutral side (that I used), there was this beautiful Grapefruit Grove pattern and I felt torn as to which to use.

So I asked people what they thought and it was pretty divided, so this is what I went with – neutral card, hint of color.  What would you have picked?  Head over to my Facebook page to see the other option.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I tucked a Colored Doily behind a pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP for the card front.  I them stamped the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and added a few Grapefruit Grove pearls.

Lastly I stamped the leaves from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut them out using the Nature’s Roots Framelits.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

  1. WOW! What a pretty card! I really like these neutral colors together, and the doily just gives the card a nice small pop of color. Looking at this card reminds me that I should use the Very Vanilla color more often instead of always deferring to white card stock for everything! Beautiful card!
