Color Coordinates: Bold and Beautiful!

Welcome everyone to another edition of my Color Coordinates series. I’m in the mood for Bold and Beautiful color!!

I was inspired by a display I saw at one of my favorite stores, it had gift wrap, bags, and cards with very similar colors to this set. When I see inspiration like this, I snap a photo with my phone so I can refer to it later. Do you get inspired by ads and displays? I’d love to hear about it.

I chose to use the Bold Flowers stamps because they are solid type images that can really show off my colors. I’ve created 2 tags really quickly by using a Misti.  

The first tag has the message letters die cut from it and placed over a slate die cut tags. The second tag uses the letters cut from the first tag layered onto Slate die cut letters which are a bit offset to look dimensional.

  1. Gorgeous tags and I love the new colour combo. I never would think of using those colours together but seeing them on your gorgeous tags I will certainly give this a try.
    I let myself inspire by things I see, once it was a TV commercial for duvet covers and recently I was inspired by the gorgeous fabric of a silk bathrobe.
    And off course I be inspired by all the great designers like you on this blog.
    Thank you so much for showing and have a great week.
