Friday Focus: Color Coach

The color of a card can make all the difference in how it feels and to whom you think it should be given.  When I am looking for a little creative inspiration I start in one of two places.  I either pull out some DSP (which is what I used for yesterday's post) or I pull out my Color Coach.
 This is a great tool that Stampin' Up! offers.  On the front of the cards are all the colors that Stampin; Up! carries and on the back of each are two suggested color combinations.  Often inspiration will strike just by cruising through the cards.

I used the Melon Mambo card for inspiration here. I chose to use the Sweet Set and really highlight the three colors.  The deep tones give this card an elegant feel that would be great for a girlfriend having a hard day.

By switching to primary colors, the card takes on a new fun feeling.  This would be great for a young girl to get (or give).  The little extra bling on both these cards makes them extra special.

So, the next time you are looking for inspiration to get the creative juices flowing - pick up this great tool.  Start with a favorite color of the person you are crafting for or just start flippin'.  Either way I know you will be inspired.
