Simon Says Stamp - Modern Medallion Color Blocked Cards


Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! I adore vibrant color and also using my ink cubes. They are affordable, compact and versatile and work perfectly for today's color-blocking technique.


Something about the Modern Medallion stamp from the Sunny Vibes release just makes me happy! When a stamp is not comprised of fine lines and has a lot of even surface area to hold ink, it makes it easy to get bold, crisp patterns and in this case, allows me to play with color combos and do a little color-blocking. Today, I'm also getting a whole lot of help with color choices using Sarah Renee Clark's Color Cubes!

COLOR PALETTE


I stated by picking a few combos from one of the cubes that appealed to me. I then used my handmade swatches to select a few similar Pawsitively Saturated Ink colors inspired by the combos until I had 6 colors for each card:


If you have these inks, then you can follow along color for color, if you have other ink lines, try selecting similar colors to create your own combo.

  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the 4 remaining colors until the whole piece of cardstock is covered.

  2. Using a Large Blending Brush, blend one of the following inks onto the cardstock:

    1. Lilac

    2. Fairway

    3. Cappucino

  3. Gather some additional white cardstock scraps of a similar size and die-cut the following layers using each sentiment:

    1. sentiment - inked cardstock

    2. sentiment - white cardstock

    3. outline - white cardstock

  4. Layer and adhere with craft glue.

  3. Adhere Foam Tape to the Modern Medallion panel.

  4. Stick panels to the corresponding card bases.

This might be my favorite color combo of the three!



The jewels add a little luxe to this simple card!

I need to buy the colour cube. I would never have thought to put brown with red and yet it works! I love how cheerful the cards are.
