Color Coordinates: Summertime FUN!

Hi everyone!! Welcome back to the blog. I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday!

I’m really enjoying Summer and I created a Color Coordinates card reflecting a bright, happy combination of color. I pulled out some Simon Says Stamp cardstocks and Nested Circle dies to create a bold background.

The Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle dies can be used in a variety of ways. For this card I created wonky rings by off setting smaller circles inside the large ones and die cut them together. I used the smaller leftover circles on the base of the card as my first layer and to spread some color around.

Once I had the background put together, I die cut Simon Says Stamp “SummerTime” and the Everette letters “FUN” in white and black for contrast.

I think this card idea would be great to do with kids while they’re off for summer, or even as an invitation for a cookout or birthday parties. I’ve filmed a video showing how to make 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 hope you’ve enjoyed this fresh color combination and card inspiration. Enjoy!!

  1. I made a scrapbook layout something like this when I first started and only had basic shape dies. I think it’s time to go that route on a card or two! Thank you! And thank you for the pdfs. I do occasionally get stumped on a color choice. This will be a great help!

  2. I love that this card is bright, colorful, and fun and it doesn’t take hours of stamping/coloring to do it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What a bright, happy card! So full of cheer with the neat dies you have used. :)

    Thank you for taking the time to create the document for us. I will download it when I get to my computer.

  4. Thanks for the pdf for the color block book. Love those ideas as well. This is great retro card. Love it.

  5. What a delightful color combo, Shari! I also really like the mod circle look you achieved with the basic circle dies. Thanks for sharing!
