Color Coordinates Recipe!

Colorcoordinatestake2-600x74

Hello everyone!!! Happy Friday and welcome back to the blog. I have a Color Coordinates Recipe for you today featuring some of our newer ink colors from our Splash of Color and Color of Fun releases.

I’ve combined Apricot, Mint Candy, Duckling, Lake Shores, and Steel blue all together to create a soft palette great for any occasion.

For my card, I colored strips of card stock with my inks then die cut them using “Thanks” from the Summer Greetings word dies. I can’t say thanks enough!

To finish things up, I added some enamel shaped arrowheads and dots.

I couldn’t leave out all the left over letters, so I created a simple card using them in a row.

I’ve shot a video of the complete process, you can view it below or on our YouTube channel.
