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.

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.
