Wednesday FUNN – Which Basics Color Palette Are You?

I have some very FUNN cards for you today which features the current Basics Color Palette from Close To My Heart.

So using the Stampaganza featured  “Better With a Friend” stamp set, let’s compare a basic brown/beige neutral palette to a more gray/”greige” palette.

I know nerd alert!

Which do you like better?
The more brown/beige based neutral palette on the left or the more gray/greige palette on the right?

If you love the palette on the left, you need to remember the upcoming changes and act before August 1st.
If you love the palette on the right, you will be so very happy on August 1st!

Let’s look at the colors and then more samples, shall we?


Good bye after July: 
Desert Sand

Be sure to have the inks and re-inkers you want for these old standbys!

Hello on August 1st:

The card stock will be two-toned (getting rave reviews)!




Here are some FUNN samples of these great colors I have happily used, some for twenty years!

Better With a Friend and the February Word Puzzle stamp sets are both revitalized this month for Stampaganza!
Both of these stamp sets are some of my all time FUNN faves.
You could buy these two and get a third stamp set free!

And if you love the brown/beige color palette, you might love this window shopping card!

“Home made” brick!

Window shopping is FUNN, but shopping online is pretty darn good, too!
The bricks are Desert Sand and Champagne which have been dirtied with Cocoa, Saddle, Desert Sand, and Chocolate inks.
I think I will add a little banner in distressed Cranberry on the upper right.


Another color to note is the Sea Glass Green! It has been the CTMH Color of the Year and will be gone on August 1st, too.

FUNN friends will be getting a FUNN mail private viewing of a card made with the Little Dreamer-Cardmaking Stamp set featuring Basics.

FUNN SHOPPING – be sure to get your FREE Stamp Sets this month!
BTW, this cute stamp set (along with all of the Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book) will be available through August, you can get it as one of your Buy One stamp sets, too!

Mr. Bear (see more samples HERE) will be available through August, but if you want him to be Desert Sand, Cocoa, Chocolate, Saddle, Champagne, or Cashmere, you should act now


You know you can get these stamp sets free?
Wouldn’t you love to have all sorts of FUNN creating some of the shopping girls, unicorns, and bears I have made this spring and summer for free?

Think of all the smiles you can bring to your friends with these images!
That is an idea I love more than I can bear! OK, that was a little uni-CORNY.

If you didn’t get around to checking out yesterday’s post, here is a quick link. Be sure to give a shout out for your State on my FB or IG!
