Mix It Up Monday: Peekaboo Peach with Stitched Framelits Dies

I messed up a bit for this one. After glancing at this colour combination from my latest set of In Color Charts for Mix It Up Monday, I went off to make my projects – and it was only when I came to create the combination image below that I realised I should have used Very Vanilla and not Whisper White. Too late now, but if you’re having a go at this combo, feel free to use whichever one you have to hand.  

Those who know me will appreciate how difficult I found this combination. I confess that PĂȘche Fraiche (still can’t bring myself to say Peekab... nope, not going to happen!) is not a favourite of mine and the Brights are my least-used collection. But when a Virtual Hostess Club member has a birthday and states that her favourites are brights, I do my best to please.

I was quite happy with the gift bag, then realised I had to use the combo again to make a matching card, which is where it all went a bit wrong. I’m not a fan of this card at all – looking at it now, I can see that it needs some Melon Mambo flowers – but hopefully the recipient will be of the view that it’ s the thought that counts. 

The words come from an upcoming stamp set that you will be able to order in January. I’m not a big believer in showing you things you can’t order until several weeks later but this set, Birthday Bright, just happened to be to hand (we were given it at OnStage in Telford) and I do love the great big greetings. I’ve used them with the new Stitched Framelits Dies which I absolutely love; they are a great addition to your dies collection and available now, ahead of next summer’s new catalogue.
