Warm, inviting, and classic, the combination of red and cream is a match made in heaven. The warmth and boldness of red hues easily melts into something soft and alluring when accented with a solid cream color. You can find this luxurious blend anywhere from lavish bedrooms in fancy estates to homey kitchens out in the country. This color palette is elegant while also adding a comfortable and welcoming feel to any space, event, or artistic endeavor. That’s why we decided to comb through The Shoppe and pull together our very own Red and Cream Collection!
From flowing ribbons, vibrant washi tape with lovely designs, gorgeous ephemera, and so much more — our collection has it all. You’ll be crafting through all the seasons with this collection, be it with enticing invitations for a spring-themed garden party or one-of-a-kind home décor projects to decorate with in the fall. And to kick start all the artistic projects you are sure to undertake with this inspiring palette, we’ve put together our own collection of projects for this gorgeous color theme:
Red and Cream Artfully Arranged Gift Box Project
Create a stunning box filled with beautiful things in this luxurious color palette. Give it to your sister, mother, or best friend and make it extra special by filling it with homemade bath and body supplies!
With One Stamp (Vintage Children) Project by Lori Brofsky & Clarissa Romano
Part experiment and part fantastic project, this idea came about from a desire to see how two different artists would use the same stamp. The end result is a powerful set of cards that use the image of small children from the Vintage Clearly Impressed Stamp Set by Julie van Oosten, some acrylic paint, and a few well placed embellishments.
Red and Cream Stamped Canvas Portraits Journal Project by Pam Carriker
It’s easy to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind journal with Pam Carriker’s project. With a selection of stunning poetic portrait stamps and some Sticky Back Canvas, you can pay homage to your favorite heroines.
Party Invitations and Favors Project
Want something truly unique for your next party? These little glass containers are perfect for party invitations, favors, and confetti holders! Unique, charming, and simple to put together with a little Divine Twine and tags, these red and cream containers will be a huge hit with your guests.
Red and Cream Miniature Banner Project
Banners don’t always have to be big to steal the spotlight. A small red and cream banner is the perfect accent for a door, the back of a chair, and just about any other place you can think of! Just use canvas triangles, some miniature clothes pins, and a little hemp cord to make a truly unique decoration.
Crafting Carryall Project
An altered paper mache purse is the perfect holder for a gift, crafting kit, baked goods, or whatever else you can think of! Simply paint the outside of the purse white, find some lovely red and cream adhesive backed fabric or paper — and add whatever other embellishments you like!
Red and Cream Love tag Project
Create a dramatic, vintage-inspired love tag with Lynne Perrella’s Artist Paper Kit. This artsy tag is a creative mixed-media project that requires the use of scrappers’ floss, beeswax, stickers, and the construction of a small mini envelope.
My Love for You Is Beyond Measure Project
While an adequate measurement of your love for friends or family is probably impossible, this project is a sentimental play on the concept. Perfect for creating a journal, scrapbook, or photo album, you can recreate this project using chipboard cover kit or a ready to alter journal, some sand-colored acrylic paint, Cherry Divine Twine, and a layer of glaze.
Red and Cream Inspiration Board Project
Although these burlap panels look great by themselves, someone with an artistic eye can see there’s a whole lot of creative potential! With just a little twine and some personalized pushpins, you can create a stunning inspirational board to display pictures, ephemera, craft supplies, notes, and so much more.
Milk and Cookies Party favors Project
Milk and cookies are great but you can make them even better! Create individualized cookie holders using Where Women Cookie Die Cuts, add a little cream colored paint, and finish it off with some knotted Scrappers Floss for an extra fancy look!
