April Showers Bring Puddles!

Everyone knows the saying April showers bring May flowers, but seeing we are not in May yet, I didn’t want to do a Colour Combo post with flowers, so this time I am going to feature rubber boots as my inspiration for my Colour Combo post!  Rubber boots have come a long way since I was a kid and some of them are pretty awesome!

I will be honest, we haven’t got rain here yet, but it is more than likely going to happen soon. It’s ok though, I love the first rain as it totally freshens up the city and really cleans away that winter dirtiness that comes out in the spring!

I am going to be featuring Flirty Flamingo today.  Although it is a In Colour that is retiring, Stampin’ Up! is bringing it back in our Brights Colour Family! (Read all about the Colour Revamp here)

Let’s check out the rubber boots!

I love this one, it is awesome with the colour blocking!  I think that this combo would make a fantastic card!  Try imitating the colour blocking, it will look awesome!

These rubber boots are so pretty!  You don’t want to get them dirty!  We have so many fabulous floral sets that you could come up with a background that is super close to this design. Remember Peekaboo Peach is retiring, so if it is a colour you love, make sure you stock up on all things Peekaboo Peach now before they are gone!

Unicorns are on trend right now, you see them everywhere!  Stampin’ Up! even has a stamp set that features them (get it now before it retires at the end of May).  Using that set you could create a great card for anyone using this colour combo!

There are so many colours in these boots but I am loving the boldness of the Garden Green with the Flirty Flamingo.  Try bringing in one of the other paw colours on the boots for another fun accent colour.

This is a classic colour combo, pink, black and white!  We have so many stamp sets that I can see using this combo for and creating a super cute, feminine card for someone!

Okay, I have one bonus one for you!  This is one of my absolutely  favourite colours and when I saw these boots I knew I had to include it!  Coastal Cabana is coming back!  I love the clean, classic colour combo of black and white with that little pop of Coastal Cabana!  These boots also remind me of a new product suite you will see in the new Annual Catalogue! Hint! Hint!

I am loving all of these fun colour combinations!  Which one is your favourite?
