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.

Have a fantastic week-end!

  1. The neutrals definitely go well with the red to both highlight it and tame it down. I really love this shade of red though. It reminds me of red love hearts and red roses especially today since it’s our 11th anniversary.

  2. Love this Schoolhouse Red! Great variety of products that will coordinate well with it too!

  3. Oh poo, I forgot, I always love the creative cards you make with all the colors you show in the videos.

  4. I love the warm red in this collection and it really pops against the white background of the card.

  5. Every week I look forward seeing all of the goodies that you pull together for each colour coordinated post, Shari. You certainly knocked it out of the park with schoolhouse red!

  6. Love love schoolhouse red color, thanks for the inspiration on what product go along with this color

  7. I love the color red and I think it pops out the most on a color wheel. Red is also the main color for Valentine Day and Christmas. I love the touch of the tape measure on your card.

  8. I have just received my SSS inks and card in the mail.. I am totally besotted. the colours are rich, vibrant and luscious! This red is just saucy :)

    Really enjoying the colour series, thank you Miss Shari! I have pinned them on a Colour board for all my followers to love too!
