Color Coordinates: Sweet Pea


Happy Friday everyone!! It’s Shari here with a Color Coordinates recipe for you that is perfect for Spring, or in my case… my Valentines notes to my manly family.

I’ve chosen muted tones of ink that go well together such as Apricot, Duckling, Willow, and Lake Shores. As my fifth color, I’ve used Desert Storm cardstock.

I’ve created tags by die cutting white cardstock using the Large Tag die to put onto small notecards for my menfolk. To get these started, I colored panels of white cardstock with the inks using an ink blending tool.

Once I had my panels colored, I use the Clipping Heart Die to cut out my hearts. This die is perfect for these tags because of all the different sizes of hearts in just one die.


I stamped a greeting from the Love and Quotes stamp set on each tag using Intense Black ink and then assembled the colored hearts around the greeting.


Once my tags were stamped and assembled, I added a twine bow to the tops and mounted them to a 4 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ notecard made from Desert Storm cardstock.


I’ve filmed a video to show you how these came together. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE. I hope you enjoy!!

  1. I saw another heart card you made recently with similar colors and wanted to know the colors you used, but I couldn’t find out. I’m glad you gave us this color combo guide so I can make something close to the colors I had in mind.
