Playing With Colour

I am a HUGE fan of colour....bright ones are usually my favourite but every colour has it's time and place. Even when I was younger I used to drive my mom crazy insisting that it was time to change the colour scheme in my bedroom, and even trying to convince them to change the decor colours throughout the entire house!

Now that I have my own home, I've been able to bring my love for colour to life! I'm sure my house would drive those "neutral lovers" crazy but it's mine and it expresses me. :) My kitchen is a soft yellow, my family room is called Grasslands and is a gorgeous shade of green. The dining room is painted a colour titled Red Point Sand and I always get tons of compliments on the colour! Upstairs is even more colourful with the older boys sleeping in a camoflauge scheme room, the baby in two shades of blue and my husband and I in two shades of purple.....yup, told you I'm a colour lover!

Stampin' Up! has gorgeous colours and my blog design is based on several of them including Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and more. Here are some of my favourite combinations:
- For bright and fun cards such as birthday or party invitations I love Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point
- For baby cards, get well soon or anniversary I favor Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Perfect Plum and Pretty in Pink
- For a more masculine look or for sympathy I like the regals and neutrals, especially Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, and Night of Navy
Using the Explore Colour section of my website I've put together several colour combinations that I think set the mood for certain types of cards and you can too!

Simply follow this link and it will take you directly to a page that looks like this and from there you're ready to get started creating gorgeous colour combinations that you can then transfer to your cards or scrapbook pages. Have fun!

Colour Video from Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share this video with you from the Stampin' Up! home office on the new colours. I'm so excited about the colour renovation and the awesome new colours it has given us plus the old favourites it brought back.

Many of you have expressed that you don't know too much about all the colours including how to use DSP or what colours of cardstock and ink to buy so I'm hoping that this video is of help to you and will get you excited about the gorgeous colours that are exclusive to Stampin' Up!

Have a fabulous day!
