Alternate Paper Pumpkin Ideas with Springtime Foils paper

 I am so in love with the Springtime Foils paper - a new gift choice from Stampin' UP! during Sale-a-Bration with your $50 online order!!  I paired it with one of my refill kits from the January Paper Pumpkin card kit.. what a GREAT kit this is, and the copper hearts match perfectly with the Rose Gold details in the Springtime Foil paper!

I stamped the thanks sentiment from "All Things Thanks" in Memento black ink on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut them with the Stitched Shape framelits for the inserts of this card design.

Seriously.. this January Paper Pumpkin refill kit is worth it just for all the yards of copper metallic-edge ribbon!!!  Be still my heart!!  :)

For these cards, I colored some of the flowers on the Springtime Foils paper with my Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends markers, then punched some out with my 2" circle punch.  I cut others out with my Paper Snips.  I used Copper Foil paper (above) and my Starburst punch for layering with the 2" circle. 

For the cards below, I used the Starburst punch and Powder Pink cardstock to layer with the 2" punched circle.

Coloring the flowers with the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends is quick and easy. This paper colors very quickly as it has a slight glossy coating on it.

I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the circle and the extra cut out flower, BONUS: you also get a sheet of them in the refill kit!

Adding a Shadow with Stampin' Blends markers

 Today I'm sharing a quick shadow tip featuring the Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers!

Coloring the Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' Up! with the Stampin' Blends markers.  Add shadowing with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.  by Patty Bennett

 

I colored the amazing black and white flower images that are printed on the Petal Passion designer paper with my Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends, then colored the leaves with the Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  But what really makes this little piece stand out, is the shadow.  I used the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker to add a "shadow" beside each image, and they almost appear to be floating!

After I colored this little strip, I added it to a Bermuda Bay folded card base with a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock on top.  I added a Thank You image (from Color me Happy) stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock (die cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits) and colored with the Pool Party Stampin' Blends markers, and then I decided to stamp the 2 little flower images from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Not sure if you noticed my mistake... but AFTER I had the card all done, I realized I had attached the colored flower strip to the card upside down.. so all my "shadows" were on the top side of the images.. I thought that looked odd, so I added more shadowing with the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends... oh well... good enough.. right?
