Thoughtful Banners

I hope everyone had a great weekend and had plenty of crafting time. Did you see my tutorial for the Embossing Paste yesterday? Such fun to use.

Today I wanted to focus on colour combinations just as much as the stamp. I have used Thoughtful Banners and created simple cards, just like the ones in the catalogue.

This first, basic card simply has a Berry Burst base with a Whisper White layer. I then stamped the lines in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black and a few Rhinestones added. Simple card.

My second card incorporates the Duet Banner Punch and some Old Olive Bakers Twine. Again a Berry Burst base and Whisper White layer but the lines were stamped in Bermuda Bay and the sentiment in Old Olive. Not a combination you would think of but I think it works well.

Why don’t you put two or three really odd colours together and see what actually looks nice together. You’ll be surprised.

Happy Crafting 😊
