Mix It Up Monday: Summer Silhouettes

It’s Mix It Up Monday and time for another colour combination from my In Color charts.  

Today I’ve stuck entirely within the 2015-17 In Color range, with Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe, all held together with some Very Vanilla. 

This stamp set, Summer Silhouettes, is a timeless classic, which I hardly dare hope will survive the new catalogue overhaul that’s coming our way in a few months. I began by stamping Hardwood in Tip Top Taupe onto Very Vanilla - I deliberately kept this “rough and ready”, allowing the stamp to miss the cardstock in places. The flowers and leaves are then stamped on top, and it’s all finished off with some strands of Burlap Ribbon and a tiny greeting. Hope you like it!


  1. Love, love, love your card! I would like to case it and show my card ladies if that is OK!!

    1. Thank you - and yes of course!

    2. Thank you so much! I have ordered this stamp set, and it has yet to see ink!! Yikes, and with my luck, it might just retire in May!! I better get going! LOL

  2. Gorgeous - thank you again for sharing.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
