Hello Stampers and Crafters I hope that you are doing well. I am here to share with you a little fall card. I really love Fall but since we are having a heat wave in the South it doesn’t feel like fall at all. As I headed out to vote, it was so warm that I wore shorts. Yes its November 8th and I am running around in shorts. This is so strange. I miss the nice cool weather were you can wear sweaters and long pants. The cool crisp wind blowing on your face as your bundled up in your nice warm blanket. So to give me the feeling of Fall I have created this cute little card. Here’s a look at today’s card
More Than I Appear:
This card uses the Acorny Thank You and Vintage Leaves stamp sets. I know you are thinking Acorny Tank You; That’s a thank you set how can you use it for something else. Well it’s all in how you use it. This set can actually be very versatile, because it has other sentiments than just a thank you. For example the Nuts About You could go for a Partner’s birthday, a love card, a wedding, or if you are trying to tell someone that you like them. With this in mind this makes this stamp set very versatile were you can actually get more mileage out of just one stamp set. Which can help you save money and spend it on other things, like adhesive, snips, dimensionals. Let’s take a look at the stamp set.
This stamp set is often over looked because everyone thinks that it is just a thank you set but it is really more then that. As we can see above. You have the Nuts about you that I used on my card today, along with a Grateful for you, Dropping in To Say Hi, and Thankful. Looking at the sentiments you can see that this stamp set can be used for so much more than what we think it is used for.
I know what you are thinking that this is not your typical Fall Color scheme. And, you would be right it’s not the typical colors of fall. This is a very modern color combination. Mint Macaron is one of my favorite 2015-16 incolor. It can go either way it doesn’t have to be just a subtle or any other type. It plays well with must colors ranging from brights, regals, and neutrals. This means that this is one color that you can pair with any other and it will look good with no matter what color you pair it with. I paired it with both Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Copper, Very Vanilla, & Cajun Craze.
Lets talk for a second about what I paired it with and put in context of color theory. Mint Macaron is basically a tint (which is any color that has white). Basically it’s a split complementary color scheme. Which means that you use colors across and to the left and right of the complementary color. Elegant eggplant can be considered to be a shade of Perfect Plum. the copper is an earth red with compliments Mint Macaron.
In closing I want you to take a look at stamps in a different way as well as what colors we put together. You can do so much with just thinking outside the box. If you go by first impressions you wouldn’t think to use Acorny Thank You for something other than a Thank you or thanks giving set. But, looking at it with fresh eyes, you could stretch your investment into a stamp set that can be used for basically every occasion that you can think. I hope that you consider Acorny Thank you if you don’t already own it I hope that you consider it.
