Stampin’ Up! Colour Combination Ideas

Color-combos2_USCA Here's some great colour combinations to try that include the new Stampin' Up! In Colours.  These combinations feel summery, don't you think?  I find that using pattern layouts or colour combination ideas lets me be creative, without having to think too hard (and if you know me, you'll know that I appreciate that!!!). 

Happy creating, and if you're so inspired, you can send me a photo of your creation to share here at yamstamps.com!

Checkerboard

Checkerboard Checkers-closeup

Here's the checkerboard from my CH Morning Live appearance.  Great to create on rainy days (which, unfortunately are in the forecast for the southern Ontario area).  I took a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock, then used my papercutter to cut 7 slits 11" long (leaving 1/2" on either end), spaced 1-1/4" apart, starting 2-1/4" from one end.  I cut 8 strips of contrasting cardstock 1-1/4" x 12" (only because I was too lazy to calculate what they should be…lol).  Weave the strips of cardstock through the larger piece, and then adjust the ends & trim to size so you end up with a checkerboard that is 8 squares by 8 squares in size.  Adhere the ends of the strips in place and you're done!  To create the checker pieces, I stamped the star image from the Stampin' Up! set "Wanted" on whisper white cardstock and punched them out with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  Use the 1-3/8" circle punch to create backing circles from the 2 cardstock colours you used.  In my example, I used Apricot Appeal and Almost Amethyst.  The joy of creating your own projects – you can use whatever colour you'd like!!!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this project.  Don't forget the new Stampin' Up! Deal of the Week will be revealed Monday at 12 noon EST (or is it EDT??!!).  I'll post an update here, but if you're anxious, check www.yamstamps.stampinup.net at noon tomorrow if you want the hot off the press info!

Stampin’ Up! Cardstock Swatch Book

Swatch-book Ever wondered what colour you "needed" to fill that gap in your collection?  Or how certain colours actually looked together (outside of your imagination?!).  I created a cardstock swatch book for myself & shared it with some customers at my recent Open House.  This swatch ring features cardstock samples complete with identifying labels with item code numbers.  I've been taking orders and selling them to local customers and will be giving these to all new demonstrators who sign up with my group during the starter kit special promotion – until August 31st.  It's a great tool to have on hand!!  It includes all 4 Stampin' Up! colour families plus the new In Colours. 

Don't forget that my Information Night is this upcoming Tuesday at 7pm – please RSVP to find out more about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  The more the merrier – come join our group "The 'Eh' Team"!
