Color Coordinates Recipe and Village Dies with Kristina!

10.17.14 Recipe Color Coordinates

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here with a Color Coordinates Recipe for you! Are you making fall cards right now? I thought I’d play around with the Stitched Tree stamps along with the coordinating Trees and Trunks dies to make a real quick one.

I used the tone on tone method by stamping with matching inks and card stocks. I’ve also used the Stitched Slopes and Hills Dies along with the Bundle of Stitches dies to create my scene.

The Giving Thanks Card die can also be used a a greeting on your cards, I used the stitch die to cut off the bottom and have it coordinate with the rest of the stitching on the card.

I’ve shot a video on how I made the card, hope it gives you some inspiration for not only a color group but also for your fall card making. Enjoy!

I have a special treat for you on this fine Friday! Kristina Werner has created a video using the new Village dies. These are the CUTEST dies ever!

  1. Kristina, your village pieces are too cool for school! I have been following your blog for a year now and I love your work. Besides being a designer, you are a born teacher.

  2. I love the thanksgiving card and enjoyed both videos! The house dies are so neat in the different ways you can use them!

  3. Love the color combo’s. I also think Kristina’s little village dies are so darn cute. I have to order these soon.

  4. Pretty card, I love the layering and texture it has. I just received my slopes and hills die and can’t wait to try them out.

  5. Love these colors for Autumn and Thanksgiving cards. Nice card and thanks for the great idea. Kristina’s tips for the village dies are super, too!

  6. The colour recipes are so inspiring – I am colour combining challenged! Lovely card . I follow the blog by email.

  7. Love this card with the pop of colour and the stitched borders on those dies just gives them a “little something extra”. Now will have to go watch Kristina’s video of the village dies, which look so cool!!!

  8. The cards are so cute. Thanks for the great video. The dies could be used for a regular pop up card too if you score and bend the bottom and then cut out, bend and attach little tabs to the backs of the houses.

  9. Loved this post! Shari’s card is so adorable – lovin’ those colors! And thanks to Kristina for showing the different ways to use that awesome die set!

  10. Love Shari’s colour combo and her finished card. Although our Thanksgiving has passed in Canada, it would be a perfect Thanksgiving card for my American friends. I truly love Kristina’s new village die set – so many possibilities!
