Perfect Plum it is!  In my recent Stampin’ Pretty Reader’s Poll, I asked you to vote for one of five Stampin’ Up! colors I don’t find myself using enough.  Perfect Plum was your top choice with 41% of the vote.  You can see the results for all five colors here.   Please note the vote is now closed.


  • Plum Crazy!  I used Perfect Plum Card Stock for the die cut layer and mat below as well as the stripe pattern for the envelope liner.

  • For a pretty contrast, I used Elegant Eggplant to define the stem (cropped with one of the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies), sentiment (Circle of Spring) and candy dots (Regals Candy Dots).

  • Cool inlaid look!  An Elegant Eggplant stem rests inside the “negative” portion where I cut the Perfect Plum layer.
