Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #120 - Schoolhouse DSP

Basic Gray #2


Welcome to another Artful Stampers blog hop! This is a color coach card that uses Basic Gray, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie. I know that the Color Coach has now retired, but I'm going to see out my Color Coach journey as it has been a lot of fun and I figure the combos could still inspire anyone who visits me for color coach ideas. :)

I used some brand new DSP on this card...it's called Schoolhouse and it has great patterns for kids and masculine cards. I particularly liked the numeric font on this paper and thought it went well with a robot for a card for someone who liked maths and robotics. :)

Here is the sketch for this week...my 'flower' is the starburst and robot image...yes, it was a bit bigger than the sketch proportions but I just HAD to use the robot on this card. :)

I was also inspired to make a masculine card by The Paper Players challenge this week.

Edited 14th June 2015 - This little card was Shannon's 'Cut Above' over at The Paper Players. I am so chuffed! :)

  1. The DSP provides a great background for that cute little robot.

  2. I love that stamp set, it is on my wish list for this catalogue. Starbursts also look to be the flavour of the day. 😉

  3. Those colours together are just striking love this :-)

  4. Very nice! Think I may have to get this set

  5. The paper is the perfect pairing for your robot and I love the pop of colour added by your banner and candy dots! Thanks for joining in with my masculine challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
