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.

  1. My favourite shade of red! I love to use this everywhere as it is such a rich colour! And thanx, Shari for the very informative post. The card is so fun and yet elegant. I love the combination of different patterns and the judicious use of the red.

  2. Your sense of layout and color combos always amaze me and inspire me to get out of my box! Your cards are loaded with interesting things to look at and so balanced at the same time. They are always “easy on the eyes.” Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  3. I love the Schoolhouse Red! And I don’t like red at all…so that says a lot! This is a fantastic line of coordinating products!

  4. Beautiful card! I really enjoy these videos with Shari coordinating each SSS color with other products.

  5. I love the red and gray combination. Thanks so much for sharing, Shari!

    I really enjoy this series and find myself buying many of the products.

  6. I have certainly enjoyed Shari’s color coordinated series. She has come up with some delicious matches and coordinates. Thanks for sharing.
