Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming

If you’re ever stuck as far as what colors to use on a card, pull out a pack of Designer Series Paper that you like and look on the back.

Stampin’ Up! always marks what colors are in that pack and you can bank on those colors working nicely together.  I took my inspiration for today’s card colors from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper, which is retiring (and while supplies last).

My card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, matted it on Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and adhered it to the card.  I took a pattern from the Coffee Break DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the smallest jar from the Jar of Love Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink (stamping off first) inside the jar.  I stamped the goldfish in our new Grapefruit Grove color and cut it out (and the jar) using the Everyday Jar Framelits.  I created my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.

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