Jewelry Color Inspiration #37

Ugh. So, I didn't really know where to start with this color combo, or even what kind of card I wanted to make. Then I found my Printed Window Sheets and checked the Occasions Mini for ideas. So I cased the Happiness card on page 10. I also took some creative liberty with the colors. I just couldn't do the Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze together... So looking at the jewelry again, I went with Baja and Taken with Teal instead.

Ok, so window sheets... not my favorite! How the heck are you supposed to glue these down to anything??? (Seriously, I welcome tips!) I ended up using SNAIL in the section under the ribbon, and then used the 2-Way Glue Pen to dab little dots of glue behind some of the petals/leaves. Which at first showed through, but then it dried. What a pain. Also, not loving the fact that there will inevitably be fingerprints on this forever. I just got an iPhone (YAY!) and am having the same problem with the screen on that! I hate fingerprints!

Also, I'm not in love with the color combo (sorry Stacey!). If I kicked out the Creamy Caramel it may have potential... Oh well, off to bed. In about a week I'll be posting some cards I'm making for a swap which I am much more proud of!

Supplies: Thank You Kindly Stamp Set; Creamy Caramel, Taken with Teal, and Chocolate Chip cardstock; Clearly Thanks Printed Window Sheets; Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad; Eyelet Border Punch; Baja Breeze 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon; Buttons Latte; Flower Fusion Too; Mini Glue Dots; Stampin' Dimensionals
