Color Coordinates Recipe!

Hi everyone, It’s Shari here with another Color Coordinates Recipe card for you.


I chose a combination that is gender generic and not occasion specific. I LOVE these colors!!! This selection is from Simon Says Stamp ink colors.

My card uses the Blocked Greetings stamps, they are beautifully bold statements great for stamping.


I stamped the “Thanks” at an angle do give my card a little different look and changed colors in between stamping the images. I also used the Thanks die to add a little something extra.


I put together a video of how this all came together which you can view it HERE.

  1. Love the colors in this recipe, and what an awesome card design! Am going to have to give this a try! I’m starting on next year’s Christmas card fronts (yep, already!) and this technique is very cool… hmmmm… TFS! ;)

  2. What a clean and simple card that has a wow factor. All colors are brilliant together. Thanks for such an understanding and inspirational video tutorial.

  3. I appreciate the Color Coordinate Inspiration. Is there a chart that has all the colors that go together? It would be a huge plus if I could get my hands on a chart to use with future cards.

  4. Beautiful card! Coral is a color that I don’t often incorporate into cards. Thank you for showing how lovely and easily it can be used for a subtle, but effective pop of color.

  5. Hi Shari! CAS, but not short on techniques and information. I was so curious about the thanks die cut and certain that you used vellum or bits of it inside the open parts of the thanks letters. Love the depth, the acrylic gave the die cut. I wish I had you color talent, Shari.

  6. Very nice and clean card, Shari. I love how you did the three layers of die cuts together to add dimension, but still be inlaid in the die cut hole. Thanks!!

  7. Love this color combo! I also love the simplicity of this card…keeping it clean and simple. Thank you for the great idea.

  8. I use to never use gray, but with all the different shades now available I’m coming around. I see it used a lot in art, crafts, and design with real success!

  9. I love that you kept it minimal and simple but interesting! The colors are so pretty. I will have to build my ink supply with Simon Says inks, that’s for sure. Also, the inspiration is appreciated. Never would have thought to stamp on the diagonal like that.
