Color Coordinates: Spring Has Sprung!

Color Coordinates, Shari Carroll

Happy Saturday!!! We are just days away from the highly anticipated first day of SPRING!! I couldn’t wait so I came up with a combo that reflects the fresh colors of the Spring Equinox. 

I’ve created an Easter card using the Simon Says Stamp Wavy Egg die which required 6 colors (so I snuck in an extra). I’ve colored each strip with one of the Simon Says Stamp inks in rainbow order Watermelon, Sunkissed, Duckling, Key Lime, Scuba, and Wisteria

I’ve covered each of the strips with Distress Collage Medium and sprayed them with Rock Candy Glitter using the Glitter Duster for a sparkly sheen. The colored pieces were reassembled and placed onto a background of die cut eggs along with my greetings.

  1. These are fantastic spring shades and look amazing in rainbow order on the egg die cut. Very clever work Shari.

  2. I struggle with color combinations, so I LOVE these posts! I can’t wait to try out this combination this evening.

  3. This card is so pretty, the egg reminds me of the Heart die Simon has, I use that one all the time so I will be adding this one as well.

  4. This is adorable. The spring colors make me hopeful for warmer weather and melting of snow. TFS. It’s hard to imagine Easter when we have two feet 🦶 of snow on the ground! Better get busy on the Easter cards.

  5. A very gorgeous card Shari, this is again a great colour combination. I love all your colour swatches.
    Thank you so much fro showing and have a great day!

    I hope you see my question: is the E6000 adhesive spray realy odourless?

  6. Lovely Easter card Shari. The colors you used are so very pretty and the glitter dust really adds to the egg. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love your CAS card! The bright glittery colors look so pretty against the white background! And the egg die cuts in the background give the card so much interest! Love it!

  8. Love that sparkly egg! I want to try that. Glad I watched the video. I thought the background eggs were embossed. Really love what you taught me! Thank you!
