Color Coordinates with Shari Carroll:Using Embossing Powders

Welcome everyone! It’s Shari Carroll here with a new Color Coordinate recipe for you. I’ve decided to try something new and add embossing powders to the mix of color.

I started out with a panel of Soft Navy cardstock and stamped the Outline Snowflake Background with Simon Says Stamp clear ink. I used Steel Navy embossing powder and heat set with my heat tool.

I die cut the snowflake tag and snowflakes from Neenah white cardstock. I colored the tag using Simon Says Stamp Magnolia ink with a blending tool concentrating the color towards the bottom of the tag.  I tapped Simon Says Stamp Clear ink onto the snowflakes with a blending tool and covered with Silver, Antique Gold and Steel Blue embossing powders, then heat set.

Once I had all my pieces completed, I arranged them onto the panel, adhered them in place and finished off with a small message and some gems.

  1. Well isn’t this delightful! I’m definitely going to have to look into that steel blue embossing powder, because I think that’s right up my alley. Thanks for sharing another fun color combo!

  2. Absolutely stunning color combo and gorgeous card, Shari!

    I just came from looking at your instructions for making an SSS Swatch Book. I was wondering if the next time you do a tutorial, perhaps you could just give us a flip thru of your Swatch Book just so I could get a visual of it. I am an older retired crafter and following instructions just doesn’t come easy to me anymore (oh, the ravages of time LOL). By the way, absolutely STUNNING color coordinates. Thanks Shari, so so much!

  3. Shari, this card is so lovely. This is a great color combo, just right for the snowflake images. The embossing adds a special touch with its shimmery appearance. Thanks for sharing the card, the color combo, the video and those color combo templates. What a treat!

  4. Great card design! I love all the different snowflake images and the color scheme is so pretty. The blue embossing powder is gorgeous!

  5. Thank you Shari! I’m the number one fan of your “color coordinate”. I’ve printed the previous ones and I’m definitely saving this one. Fabulous card! TFS

  6. Hi Shari, Your card is gorgeous and I LOVE your colour choices. Thanks so much for sharing. Love Simon’s background stamp as well, it’s a beauty!
