Bonus day! Two posts today! I spent some time in my stamp room today. There’s a little story behind this card so bear with me. I’m usually not so chatty but I had to share this.
A long time ago, my friend and I went to the race track in Foxboro Mass (it’s long gone now and they built the new stadium for the Patriots to play there). We wanted something different to do so we thought we would go bet on the horses. Well, we really sucked at it and were losing our shirts to say the least. An older gentleman behind us saw we weren’t doing so well and he gave us a little tip. On the betting sheets at the bottom of each race were what was called the “pro’s pic’s” (not exactly sure if that was the name, but it was something like that). He said that the “pro’s” know what they are doing so we should try their picks. Needless to say, our luck turned around and we ended up having a better time when we were winning.
What’s this story have to do with stamping?? Well, here’s how. The new Color Coach Stampin’ Up! has is awesome. It comes as a little book of all the current colors. But the great thing about it is on the back of each color, it gives you samples of what colors go best with each other. So I decided to take that old man from the track’s advice again and see what the pro’s at Stampin’ Up! had picked!!!
Today, I wanted to use Not Quite Navy because I haven’t used it for a long time. The back of the Color Coach called Not Quite Navy & Baja Breeze a “Dynamic Duo”. How could I go wrong with that! I made 3 of these with different verses. The main stamp sets were Elements of Style and Tiny Tags. Any verse set will do! I HIGHLY recommend the new Color Coach. It’s well worth the $14.95 price tag. It’s fun to play with as well!
