I just can't help myself! I'm just drawn to this color combo. So, I apologize if you don't like it - but what's wrong with you?!?! Just kidding! If I've learned one thing in my almost 10 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, it's that we are all very different. What I may think is the ugliest stamp set in the catalog is someone else's favorite.....without fail.
That just happened to me a couple of months ago. Are you familiar with the stamp set in the Occasions Catalog - Apple of My Eye? I just couldn't understand why anyone would want to buy that set. Well, don't you know, I was chatting with one of my team members and she said that was one of her favorite new sets? And I know she has good taste! LOL!
The inspiration for today's card came from all sorts of demonstrators. I've seen so many people using strips of cardstock to make a color block background. It's been on my "to create" list for quite some time. So, are any of you surprised that I used my newest favorite color combo when I got around to making one!
It's a great technique for using up scraps. I pulled these out of my scrap bin. And, if you're not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you may be scratching your head when you see the embellishments on my card - the Cucumber Crush baker's twine and the Cucumber Crush pearl accent were both in the March Paper Pumpkin kit. I had some leftovers so I added them to today's project.
