How do you pick out the color combinations for your cards?  Does a page in a magazine attract you?  A display in a store?  Your favorite dress or shirt?  Do you work with your favorite color most of the time?

A big group of our 24/7 Stampers got together last night for an online gathering to help everyone get ready for Sale-A-Bration.  So we needed something quick to help us plan this card.  The color combo for this elegant birthday card came right off the Stampin’ Up!  Color Coach.  We tried our best to put red on this card, but it was not to be.  So we have that flower stamped in Real Red and another in Elegant Eggplant that we have all ready for a future handmade card.

This weekend, we’ll be doing a Master Class about organizing your stamp area.  You can join them here.


We were just dying to use that new Simple Stems stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  Did you know that it matches the Secret Garden Framelits?  And who knew that Elegant Eggplant and Summer Starfruit could be so impressive?

What’s your favorite color combo?  Leave us a comment below and let’s see what the most popular one is.
