Simon Says Stamp Color Coordinates: Spring Flowers


Welcome everyone!! I hope you’re having a good day.  I have a Color Coordinates recipe that is perfect for Spring flowers! I’ve used some of our new ink colors; Rose Apple, Clementine, Velvet Orchid and Dusty Sage. For the neutral, I’ve used Fog cardstock.


I started by die cutting the Forget Me Not Flowers from Neenah white cardstock and colored them in using Tsukineko sponge daubers with the inks.

I concentrated the ink in the center of the flowers and blended it out to the edges. Blending is a great way to extend your ink colors by creating lighter shades. Once I had my flowers and leaves colored, I arranged them onto a white embossed Flower Medallion stamped on a Fog cardstock panel. I die cut Hello from black cardstock and set it onto a strip of white. To finish up, I added Studio Katia round drops to the flower centers.

I’ve filmed the process of making this card which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  1. Very pretty! I’m sitting out on my front porch waiting for it to warm up today and wishing I had some pretty flowers like these to grace my yard! Thanks for the bit of Spring in my day!

  2. Really like this method of colouring flowers, and the shades are perfect.
    The embossed background is pretty good, too!!!

  3. Love these colors…muted, but beautiful.Could be taken to the other end of the spectrum- with the same colors, or the muted end, seen here. LOVE!!

  4. Oh Shari, your card is really gorgeous. I love the colour combo you used, the Forget Me Not’s are beautiful in these pastel shades. Very nice job on it!

  5. Loving the background stamps. One of my favourite color combos is to emboss white over grey cardstock. Love it!

  6. I really like the color combinations. Great die set too. The leaves can be used with lots of different flowers too. Blog candy would be so awesome to win. I need some good dies.
    Thanks for your inspiration.
