Hi everyone, do you ever get stuck in a creative rut? Do you use the same stamp sets, the same colouring mediums, and even the same colour palette? I do. I love using certain things and I reach for them again and again. Now, to be honest, whilst I called it a rut earlier, I don’t actually think it is a bad thing. With repetition, we really begin to learn how to use products, techniques and we learn all about colours which work together. I’m actually a big fan of it.
Having said that, today I decided to try and push myself out of my comfort zone. I stayed with a design and technique I am comfortable with but I went for a completely different colour palette! Oh boy, that was hard!
The colour palette I chose was Crushed Curry, Call Me Clover and Mint Macaron. This palette was one recommended by Stampin’ Up! To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of yellow. I like little highlights, for sure, or the odd flower but a card where it is the focus…never.
I CASED the card I made using the Painted Seasons stamp set, the Climbing Roses stamp set and the Rose Trellis bundle. You can see my original card here. I followed the exact same card design only switching out the sentiment.
Here’s the Card…
When I was finished I didn’t like the card. The more I look at it though, the more it grows on me. I’d love to challenge you all to do the same thing. Pick a new colour palette from colours you NEVER (or rarely use) and make a card. You could CASE an old card you’ve made but do try some new colour combinations. You might not think you are going to like the result but you might just stumble across a combination you do love!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
