I used lots and lots of yummy Stampin' Up! ink pads and my sponge daubers (see full color list in the product photos at the bottom of this post) and I had a blast coloring this paper super quickly! I cut it into 4" x 5-1/4" pieces and added it to Flirty Flamingo folded card bases, then stamped the Ribbon of Courage ribbon stamp with Flirty Flamingo ink onto oval die cuts! I added the "hugs" die cut from Lovely Words thinlits to each card. I colored the "hugs" with Wink of Stella for some shimmer!!
Supplies are limited.. available only while supplies last.
Do you love to color? I do! Ever since I was a child, coloring has been such a fun activity for me! I've advanced from my box of 64 Crayola Crayons to fun coloring tools like Stampin' Blends, Blender Pens, Stampin' Write Markers, Brusho, Watercoloring, and more!
My cards today are colored with Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers on the fun "Just Add Color" designer paper from Stampin' Up! It's RETIRING, and is only available while supplies last!
Above: the watering can sheet of 12x12 paper has delightful watering can designs and I loved coloring this 4"x5-1/4" piece for my card. The Card base is the NEW Pineapple Punch (yellow) cardstock.. an upcoming 2018-2020 In Color available on June 1, 2018.
All samples colored with Stampin' Blends (available again in May, see THIS POST).
Below: This fun "row house" pattern got a colorful update.. I was thinking of some of the colorful buildings on Curacao when I colored this card! The "greeting" is a sticker from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack #145592.
If you love to color, you will love this paper! Perfect Adult Coloring Book options!!
Below: I loved coloring all the leaves on this pattern with my Stampin' Blends, and adding yellow to the green leaves really makes them pop! The greeting is from the Picnic With You stamp set, and stamped on a sticker from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. The leaf branch sticker is from the same card pack. I've mounted it on one of the new In Colors called Grapefruit Grove, and onto a side fold thick Very Vanilla card base.
