COOL SHADES

Have you seen this special feature on the PS web site?

This is a fun way to boost creativity.every month.

3 color coordinated projects are created with each new stamp set... I took those colors and created a chart to share with you.


























Here's how it works:
The four colors on the top left corner square are colors that I used on my sample cards found on the Birthday Buddies page.
The four colors on the top right corner square are colors that I used on my sample cards found on the Pretty Phrases page.
The four colors on the bottom left corner square are colors that I used on my sample cards found on the Falling For You page.
The four colors on the top right corner square are colors that I thought looked great together.

In addition to these 4 color combination's, you can use all rows as well.
The 4 colors that go from left to right and top to bottom coordinate beautifully.
New shades will be added every month on the first.

left to right:
rust, teal, black and lime
sage, kraft, sandy blue, white
mint, baby pink, red, fawn
teal, pink, lavender, grey

top to bottom:

rust, sage, mint, teal
teal, kraft, baby pink, pink
black, sandy blue, white
lime, white, fawn, grey




these aren't actual product colors, just words that I chose to describe them

Here's a card that I created with 3 different American Crafts embossing powders.  The color combo that I chose is from the top left corner


























Here are three more "Pretty Phrases" cards that are simply fab-u-lous in three STYLES:

Classy AND Clean


























Elegant AND Sophisticated


























Fun AND Cute


























These girls really know how to knock my socks off...are your socks still on?

Have a fabulous weekend  :)

Hope to see you on Monday
