Color Coordinates With Shari Carroll

Hello everyone!! Happy Saturday! I hope you find some time to craft today. I created a new Color Coordinate combination for you which uses Purple, Greens, Blues and Black. I did something a little different this time where I blended my colors on cardstock using an Ink Blending tool, then used dies to create the elements of my card.

My son Scooter turned 29 yesterday ( Happy Birthday Scoot!!) and I wanted to make him a special card to celebrate the last year of his twenties! I love to make birthday cards and highlight the year of my victim. The Cathy Z Everett Numbers are one of those fundamental die sets that are the perfect size for cardmaking. It’s a bold font that can be used for Clean and Simple or Distressed and Vintage styles. After coloring paper with my inks, I die cut 3 sets of “29”.

I filled the black panel with alternating “29’s” cut from black and white cardstocks. I also used the Cathy Z “Dude” die for part of my message and stamped the Happy Birthday using the Messages For Everyday set.

I’ve filmed a video showing how I created this card. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

This past March, I created a PDF of our past recipes that you can print out to create a booklet HERE.

  1. Wow! A very cool card in Co!ors I probably would not have picked for a man—but it all works! Good design all around!

  2. I love the great card Carrol and the colour combo is stunning, thank you so much and have a nice Sunday.

    1. I am so sorry Shari, I was writing the comment and was afraid that I would spell your name wrong, my daughter was asking something on the same time and when I had posted my comment I saw I wrote your last name instead of your first. So sorry.

  3. I’ve done a similar layout but not with colors like this. Definitely has a great masculine look, and your blended colors brings them all together so well. Love it!

  5. Shari, the colors are scrumptious! I love it! What a great celebratory card for your son’s last year of his 20’s. Happy birthday to Scoot! I may have to buy the dies and case this cool card for my son who will turn 29 next August.
