Creating a Card with Love of Color

How many times have you tried to pick out colors for a project, drug out the color wheel, and become frustrated that nothing seems to match? OR do you stick with a set of colors you know will always work? Well, my friend, today is the day to venture out of your color comfort zone.  I am going to show you a simple way to choose a palette for your project using the Love of Color idea book.  

If you are a member of my Create with Miss. Carrie VIP Group, you had a chance to see this card created during my Fab Friday Find video.  I walked you through this wonderful Love of Color book and showed you how to make this card using our September stamp set

This how-to book is designed to help you find complementarity colors for your projects.  On this card, I knew that I wanted to use the Desert Rose cardstock, but I wasn’t quite sure which colors would match.  All I had to do was open up the book to “Desert Rose” and I was shown multiple options for projects and color combinations. 

Not only was I able to find a color palette to match Desert Rose, I was also inspired by one of the projects in the book.  This how-to book is FULL of projects you can create using the color combinations shown.  It even tells you where to find the cutting guide in our other how-to books. 

For those of you who may have missed out on the Fab Friday Find Video, here is a modified version of the video showing you the Love of Color idea book and the card making process. The full-length version can be viewed in my VIP Group.  

This card was really simple to make and fun to create using the Love of Color palette suggestions. I would have never thought to pair Desert Rose with Mint and Ballerina. 

I hope that this project inspired you to venture outside your “color comfort zone” and try a few new colors in your designs.  I know that having this book helps me to consider new combinations and I am often inspired by the projects within. 

If you would like to purchase either of the Love of Color books or any of our How-to Books, you can do so on my website.  Most of these books fit right inside our 6″ x 8″ Every Day Life Binders making it easy to flip through and transport.   

If you would like to recreate this card, make sure that you snag that September stamp of the month before September 30th. This stamp set is available for only $5.00 with any $50 purchase.
