Color Coordinates: Bold and Beautiful!

Welcome everyone to another edition of my Color Coordinates series. I’m starting to look at bolder colors as we start to inch into fall. One-color I like to introduce into my fall line up is Purple! I’ve paired Simon Says Stamp Deep Purple and Hydrangea with some blue and green tones of Deep Sea, Evergreen, and Willow

This is a card for my son, I think it’s manly, bold. and well… beautiful! I’ve used a repeating stamp image HBD from the Cathy Zielski Stop Drop Party stamp set for a clean and simple look while showing off a range of colors. 

Each image was stamped twice for maximum boldness, using a Misti to keep the stamp in place. I just love our inks for their quality of softening into the paper leaving a creamy but crisp finish.

  1. I just discovered this series and I am loving it! I am intrigued by this color combination, I never would have put these colors together. I have downloaded the pdf of the other color combinations. Thank you for this tremendous help.

  2. Thank you for coming up with this booklet. I am color-challenged and appreciate seeing how colors will coordinate. I’m wondering if others have printed it out and if so what size they found most useful.

  3. I was going to say this card is beautiful, but I’m going to revise it to handsome. Love the repeating simple pattern.

  4. I am always looking for cards men and this one is perfect! And the colors are great. I love you color coordinate blogs. Thank you!

  5. Awesome card, indeed real manly colours but not the useal dark blue or bronw’s.
    I love your color coordinates series, I keep them on my Pinterest page so I can always find them (printing means losing it for me,LOL).
    Thanks for your great inspiration Shari.

  6. Shari,
    Using your color coordinated templates Guarantees beautiful and eye catching results. You are so very talented in seeing color. What a wonder world of color we have to enjoy! Thank you for sharing your talent with us!!

  7. Color Coordinates is such a great series! These colors are amazing together. Thank you Shari for all of your inspiration!!

  8. Thanks for another great color combo! Love the masculine colors in this one. I need lots of masculine cards so will be using this combo often. Great card, too! I’ll be adding this stamp set to my wish list. This is a great design that can easily go from masculine to feminine by just switching out the colors.

  9. Absolutely love this color palette that deep purple ( my favorite color/royalty you know :) ) with those hydrangea, willow, deep sea, AND evergreen … just beautiful !!
    Fantastic card !
