Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to the blog!!! I have a nice classic Springtime Color Coordinates recipe for you today.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Bold Flowers and coordinating dies with Velvet Orchid, Teeny Bikini, Clementine, Duckling and Beanstalk Green inks. Once I had my flowers and greens stamped and die cut, I placed them onto the Wonky Hashtag die which I used as a trellis.
I arranged the flowers by stacking and overlapping them then placed the arrangement onto a panel of Fog cardstock with a twine bow. I finished it up by placing the panel onto a square card made from Neenah white cardstock.
I’ve had a lot of requests to have our Color Coordinates all in one place so I created a PDF that you can download and print. I have two, this first one HERE is a lower resolution and this HERE is a higher resolution suitable for printing. I’ve included circles that you can stamp into using your own ink since there can be variables in color printing. Below is a sample of one of the pages.
I created the cover using Jane Davenports Brights Mixed Media Rub-Ons. They are so pretty and easy to use. I also used my Brother Label Maker to title my book. It’s great for tiny custom words. I bond my pages using some old brads, you could also use twine or ribbon to dress it up a bit.
Before binding, be sure to put your recipes in the order that you like. You can section them off by season, brights or favorites. My final book measures 4.75″x 7″ which is a good viewing size. There are 15 pages total with 29 recipes.
I’ve filmed a video with both the card and the book together. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
