Color Coordinates: Summer House

Welcome everyone to another edition of my Color Coordinates series. I’m in the mood for Summer houses on the beach with this selection of colors. They are calming and the card is super easy!

I’ve started out with some white Neenah cardstock, the Tim Holtz “String” Layering Stencil, and 3 delicious Simon Says Stamp colors of ink in Sparrow, Stone, and Surf Blue

I’ve used the Stamp Market Botanilcal Beauty die to cut out the leaves from Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass and Tim Holtz Metallic Confections papers. 

Be sure to watch the video for the tips and tricks used in the making of this card.

  1. This card is elegant and simple. The colors work well together and appreciate the tip on holding the stencil in place with Pixie Spray.

  2. This is one of my favorite color combos. I’ve never seen that stencil, it’s now on my wish list.

  3. On this very, very hot day, this is refreshing and does remind me of long ago days and weather worn silver-grey beach houses on the NC coast. A fond memory and a beautiful card! Thanks!

  4. I love these colors!! And I totally agree, serene was the first word that came to mind. Thanks for sharing the Pixie Spray tip.

  5. What a beautiful color combination I probably always say this but I love your style! I love how you mix the metallics with the matte colors. I keep trying to mix it up like you do. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration.

  6. This colour combo is so relaxing and gentle and the card design is really lovely. About the Pixie Spray…..is there much odour when spraying? I don’t have easy access to the outside or fresh air when crafting, and I’m wondering how strong/toxic the spray is? Also, is the Pixie Spray difficult to wash off the stencil? And finally, same question about the E6000 adhesive spray (odour/toxicity)?

  7. Suck a lovely and simple card, but breathtaking. What did we ever do before Pixie Spray? I know it helps make my finished products look much more professional. Thanks for your tips.

  8. You call it Summer House, I call it my current livingroom colour scheme… LOL! Love the combo! And I totally agree Carol that it is calming which is much needed after a hectic work day. Beautiful card and I love the addition of the metallics.

  9. I feel calmer just looking at this… great combination and I love that metallic card stock. Might be a shopping day! As always thanks for inspiring.

  10. Ooh I love this color palette! Simple, clean, and the metallic paper adds such fun variety in texture. Gorgeous!
