Not Quite 50 Shades of Grey


What does the color gray mean to you? Typically, gray does not evoke strong emotion.  For most people, it’s a staid, dependable color, offering a sense of balance and control.

Gray might not be one of your go-tos, but it can add great touches to your crafting. It’s sleek and elegant, a classic color, a natural fit for wedding, anniversary, and sympathy cards, not to mention masculine-themed cards. As a netural, gray perfectly accents home decor projects. Plus, it offers a great alternative to black for sentiments and background stamping.

We don’t have 50 grays (yet), but we still have a wide assortment in a variety of our products so you can stretch those gray muscles.

Our recent releases in the gray color family include StazOn Ink and Studio Glaze in Cloudy Sky, shown here in our CHA 2015 booth display.

Another out-of-the-box gray is our irRESISTible Texture Spray in Gray Flannel, which gives you a blast of color along with texture.

Ready for some projects? Our “Sunshiny Hello” card uses Memento Ink in London Fog as an elegant contrast to Radiant Neon.

  1. I just painted my bedroom and bath in Revere Pewter (it is either a Gray or sometimes it’s beige, so I call it Greige). 🙂 I took a picture, but I don’t see a way to post it here. Will post it on Facebook. It looks real purty!!!
