Creating with Pantone’s Color of the Year + Sale!

Creating with Pantone's Color of the Year: Living Coral

Hello friends! I always love discovering fresh ideas and new ways to get creative. Finding new color schemes is something I always love; did you know that Pantone selects a color to embody each year? For 2019 they have selected Living Coral; a vibrant, warm color that exudes comfort… and in my opinion, love as well. Which is why I centered my card’s theme around this very topic.

This tutorial first appeared on the Simon Say Stamp blog.

How I Made It
Creating with Pantone's Color of the Year: Living Coral

The challenge I gave myself was to make a card that was primarily made up of coral tones. As you can see, most of this card is white and coral, with a kiss of gold. I really love how well this card came together!

The main focal point includes the gorgeous Clustered Leaves and Outline Clustered Leaves die sets; I cut one from vellum and the other from white cardstock. Using Abandoned Coral Oxide ink, I blended color onto the outline leaves. That same Abandoned Coral ink was used to add some soft blending to the background panel as well.

I splattered a watery mix of Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls onto the background, along with splashes of plain water; this created great texture. Around the leaf clusters, I added white leaves (covered with Moxi Glitter Glue), pearlized dots and Simon Says Stamp sequins; each sequin is filled with Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

For the greeting, I used the Birch Press Design Sugar Script Love die, and a stamped sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Floral Bliss set.

I hope you will watch the video above to see how I created this coral-inspired project! I also encourage you to try using coral colors on your upcoming cards and papercrafting projects; the color is perfect for just about any occasion, not just love. Imagine birthday, thinking of you and thank you cards all featuring this heartwarming tone.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today; I will be back again very soon with more crafty ideas to share!
