Today’s hello card can be created in minutes with the Stampin’ Up! Around the Bend dies & coordinating stamp set. The luscious combination of Copper Clay, Wild Wheat and Pretty Peacock (all new Stampin’ Up! Colors) was shared on my Tuesday post along with other color combos here.
WHAT I LOVE ! The modern blooms from Around the Bend Dies gain so much personality when cropped in Pretty Peacock and“dotted” with coordinating Copper Clay adhesive dots in their centers.
PRINT IT! My Stampin’ Pretty Color Combination Library is available as a PDF to view, save, and print! NOW WITH A BOOK TWO! My first book filled so many pages I had to start a new one! Be sure to download both BOOK ONE and BOOK TWO!
