Color Inspiration from Happy Heart Studio

I found a great tutorial for creating a custom color palette in PicMonkey at Creative Cain Cabin and thought I'd give it a try. I love PicMonkey, it's what I use to edit all my photos and create my watermarks. I had so much fun playing with color palettes. I decided to create a custom palette for a couple of my recent cards.

I originally designed these cards as Lawn Fawn samples for display in the Notions booth at CHA. It's no secret I love coloring Lawn Fawn images and the Gleeful Gardens and Baked with Love sets just about made me giddy to color! I used Copics to color these but you could use anything you like. Hopefully you'll get some color ideas from these palettes.

Let me know what you think. I might make this a monthly feature here so I'd love to read your comments and suggestions. There's a few things that need to be tweaked and perfected with the layout of the palette to make them more uniform but for now this works.
Here's the link to the tutorial: How to Create a Custom Color Palette in PicMonkey



  1. Wow, I am LOVING this, Nancy! The colors are so bright and pretty-perfect with LF images! You did an awesome job on using the colors! I hope that you continue and would love to see what you do next :)

  2. You are a sweetheart! Thanks for sharing this, I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I also saw that she has a tutorial for a watermark - that is another thing I have never found out how to do - thank you Nancy!

  3. I love this color idea and your cards are so fun and cheerful! What fun new stamp sets!

  4. Oh Nancy! These are my kind of cards- so fun and colorful!

  5. The cards are so happy and fun! My daughter would love the one with the backing things. She likes to make cake and cookies. Hope I can find that lawn fawn stampset somewhere. I april we have a stamp event. Maybe I can find it there. Thank you for sharing the links. I would like to give it a try myself.


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!
