Hello and welcome! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Our very first What Will You Stamp? Challenge for 2017 is to create using the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. This set coordinates with the Duet Banner Punch and is very useful for putting together your own message as there are LOTS of words and phrases. The stamp set and punch are available to purchase as a bundle.
I decided to do a sentiment background and chose Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate as my colours.
I had a strip with the negative from a project I had made using the Flourish Thinlits so I knew I wanted to incorporate that piece into my design. I also wanted to try out the new Lift Me Up bundle. So I decided on a graduation card for this project.
I stamped rows of the sentiment in Smoky Slate and one in Mint Macaron as a highlight. I then simply adhered the balloons, the banner and scattered some metallic stars.
Tip: You can often save and use the negative pieces from diecuts to use on another project, saving cardstock and giving you extra elements for another card.
If you like this colour combo, feel free to share and pin it. You can find more on my Pinterest colour inspiration board.
