Farewell to Summer

Hot Air Balloons Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Today is the last day of summer and the first day of Fall.  My Farewell to Summer Card design features a fleet of Hot Air Balloons, which are typical in my area on Summer mornings.

I used my favorite Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper for the background, since I wanted more color than a clouds or landscape scene.  The balloons are stamped with the Ombre Stampin’ Pads in Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.  You can see how well the colors coordinate with the background, even though other colors are used.  That’s an advantage the Stampin’ Up!® exclusive colors gives you!

Calypso Coral, from the Orange-Red Color Group, and Bermuda Bay, from the Green-Blue Color Group, are Complements to each other.  Rich Razzleberry is from the Red-Violet Color Group and is offset from a Triad.  I’m putting this combination into the Complementary Plus Color Scheme.

This color combination is good for Just Because notes, Party, Birthday, Baby & Bridal Shower, Thank You and Feel Better cards and pages.  I would temper these colors with Whisper White because the solid colors may be overwhelming.
