Color Coordinates Inspiration!

Hello everyone! It’s Shari here with a new series. You asked for it, and I aim to deliver! I will be giving you Color Coordinates Inspiration samples that you can try.


Todays colors are nautical in a way but young masculine in another. Honestly, I haven’t tried them all together before. It was fun as a personal challenge.

I created a birthday card by using the Hourglass stamps and coordinating dies along with the inspiration inks.

I die cut the Happy Birthday greeting and reassembled it to reform the sentiment. I used a bit of foam tape to lift up the white panel for added dimension.

I’ve also shot a video of how my card came together.

Thanks for stopping by today, let me know your thoughts on this series. I think it will be fun! Have a great week-end!

  1. Love the texture with layers, the cut out with script below, the use of color, all comes together so nicely! A modern masculine card, always needed here.

  2. What a fun card! Love the placement of banners, color combo, die sentiment and twine. Will you please do a video how you curled/placed the twine?
