Schoolhouse Red is the darker of the two Simon Says Stamp red card stocks and ink. It reminds me of an old time red… like paint on barns! I’ve brought together some product that works well together but have also focused on adding in some neutrals.

I’ve put together my walk through video and an introduction to my simple card. Enjoy!

Simon Says Stamp Khaki, Slate and Black cardstocks look fabulous with Schoolhouse!

I’ve stamped the Prima flower image onto Khaki cardstock using Schoolhouse Red ink, then cut it out using my scissors. I’ve also cut out panels from the Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is paper pack to use as part of my arrangement. To finish things off, I added in a small butterfly cut from Slate cardstock and some enamel dots.
