Color Coach Creations Idea Share – Real Red

Happy Friday to all of you!

I truly can not tell you why I don’t use more of my Real Red card stock.  After picking today’s color, I realized how much I love the richness of this red.  I think it is because I always link the color red with Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  Shame on me for limiting my choices with just those two occasions. It’s a super color for almost any project!

Today’s card uses the trio of colors (Real Red, Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie) from the “Getting Started Combination” in  the Color Coach and this adorable bear image from the Beary Best Wishes stamp set.

I just recently purchased the new Designer Buttons from the “Brights” set.  These sets make the best accessories for cards, scrapbook pages and other projects.  I really like that the collection has a total of 72 buttons; 4 each of 3 designs in 6 colors!  Love this option.  There are also 3 other color sets…..I will show you more designs using those in the future.

Card Size:  A2 (4-1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded @ 5-1/2″)

This card would be a cute design for a little boy to take to a friend for a birthday party!  The balloon was made by just stacking two button colors and designs on top of each other.  The Mini-Glue Dots work great holding them firmly in place.  I also added a thin piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock through the two holes in the red button for thread!

The bear image was stamped on Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) with Black StazOn ink.  I used my Aqua Painter and inks in the following colors:

Bear – Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip

Shirt – Real Red, Pacific Point

Shorts – Shaded only with Going Gray

Shoes – Real Red , Signo Gel Pen in White

Trim around the bear leaving a border and attach to the card from with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. I just have to comment because of what you said about not using Real Red much! It is one of my favorite colors to use! Maybe this really neat card will inspire you and others to make it a favorite too!
