Nightshift Blue can easily be used as a dark neutral. Where you might use black, try Nightshift Blue instead. Alice makes this sentiment from the brand new True Friends stamp set shine among softly stamped shapes from the Circle Scribble Flowers set.

Nightshift Blue layered on top of Summer Splash makes for high contrast on this rose Erin created with the Rose with Overlay Die-namics. Sour Apples leaves and two perfectly placed enamel dots complete this absolutely lovely card.

Using Versamark, Jill added lots of dimension to each layer of card stock. And here's a secret - Jill is utterly obsessed with Nightshift Blue. Do you have a go-to shade that you're always running out of?

Sour Apple leaves and two pretty Summer Splash birds pop off Miriam's Nightshift Blue branches. Remember to think outside the box when choosing colors. A tree branch doesn't HAVE to be brown. Here, the dark blue looks just right.

Have you seen the new Birdie Brown You Gnome Me stamp set and Die-namics? Vera features this little guy in our colors. Looks like he's up for a day in the garden this spring (or some sort of mischief)!

Cool and delicious treats from the brand spankin' new You're the Sweetest stamp set and Die-namics are the star of the show on Veronica's card. The fact that Summer Splash only appears on the one popsicle really makes it really pop!
