Merry & Bright: Color Coordinates with Shari Carroll


Welcome to the blog everyone!! It’s Shari here with another Color Coordinates for you. This was a super fun combination to throw in the pink and blue along with traditional Christmas colors. I think it’s a fresh look for the Holidays.


I played around with the ClarityStamp Stencil Brushes to color the Tim Holtz Retro Ornament dies. I have to say… I felt like these were an exceptional way of coloring paper to achieve a blend from white to dark.


I stamped the Holiday Background onto a panel of Fog cardstock with Simon Says Stamp white ink which gave me just a hint of light toned messages and a subtle setting for the brightly colored ornaments.


I filmed the process of how this card was made which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
