Stampin’ has so many tools for you to use to help you create and craft a new project. One of my favorite is the Color Wheel. It’s is FABULOUS and I can’t image my crafting without it.
Seriously!!! Do you sit and think… “now what colors would look good together?” If so, you must check out the color wheel. You can find it in your Spring/Summer 2009 Catalog on Page #153.
One of my favorite features is on the front of the wheel/coach. Say your using Cameo Coral card stock and you want to stamp on it but aren’t sure what color would be dark enough to stamp a salutation. On the front of the color coach you can find Cameo Coral and right next to it is the suggested color that is dark enough to compliment the Cameo Coral CS… which is Ruby Red. So, Ruby Red would pop great on Cameo Coral paper.
Another great feature is the color wheel itself. Turn your wheel to Cameo Coral and your find three other color suggestions that look great and a complimentary color such as Tempting Turquoise.
You’ll find this Pretty Amazing card in your catalog on page #93. I used the Pretty Amazing Stamp Set. I didn’t like the colors of the sample card featured in the catalog so I visited my handy color wheel and changed the colors up and now I love it!!!
If your stuck and need inspiration, look through the Spring/Summer catalog and find a card that you like… then grab your color wheel, change up the colors and stamps if you’d like. And you’ll have another gorgeous card to add to your collection.
