The Daisy Delight Stamp Set meets the new 2017 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! in five handmade cards. These cards will give you a good look at the new In Colors, and some color combinations that show them off! You’ll find all the new colors and the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in the new 2017 Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!
You may have seen this one in an earlier post: Here Come the New In Colors. It combines the neon-bright Lemon Lime Twist with Crushed Curry and Garden Green. Since my color preferences run to pastels and muted colors, this one is a bit much for me! But it works well as an accent color in this card.
Next is Berry Burst, a bright magenta, which combines well with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach in this card.
Tranquil Tide is probably my favorite in the bunch. It is a muted teal color, which easily combines with greens and blues. Here it’s enhanced by Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi.
I can see using Fresh Fig a lot in my studio. It’s like a muted version of Rich Razzleberry, and combines well with other red-violets, like Sweet Sugarplum. Soft sky sets both of them off nicely.
The last color is Powder Pink. You might already know how much I use pink in my cards, and this is a muted pastel, somewhere between Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette. Flirty Flamingo gives the card some POP, and Elegant Eggplant frames both the pinks nicely.
Knowing your own color preferences is really important, especially when you’re first starting out.
Understanding the properties of colors will help you make effective color combinations, which means you’ll make better cards.
If you get confused when you try to choose colors for your handmade cards, the online class, Use Colors Like a Pro! Color Theory Made Simple for Paper Crafters will help you combine colors like an expert!
This is what two crafters say about the class:
“I took Sage Kimble’s Color Class. The immediate reaction was this was a nice review of what I knew but also fleshed out the basics with some additional information and I loved her card examples. I probably studied those more than the theory presented.
However, the next time I went to design a card, I found many of the elements of the class coming forward. Instead of reaching for my favorite combinations, I accepted her challenge and tried a complimentary color scheme, and an analogous scheme.
I recommend you try this class. I think you will find that is one of those classes that comes back to you time and time again.”–Linda Morse
“Your videos are very clear, and make me want to look at the color choices I make and see why I like them. Up until now, I didn’t know why certain colors were warm or cool, or when looking at a color, I couldn’t tell if it was more yellow or blue. Now I have some tools that will help me. You have a great eye for color and design, and we are lucky that you share your knowledge and ways of looking at things with us.”–Janelle Varner
