Get Inky! Ink your own Spectrum Rainbow Pad!

 Have you discovered the fun of inking your own Spectrum (rainbow) pad yet?  You can purchase an uninked Stampin' UP! Spectrum pad (here) and use your ink refills to create your own rainbow, or, your own choice of color spectrum!!! 

Today I am sharing a couple of my own Spectrum Rainbow Ink Pad card samples, and several tips with you!

My cards today all feature the same rainbow pad that I inked with Stampin' Up! ink refills (see below for color combo).  I used the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, the Beautiful Day stamp set, and the Springtime Impressions butterfly die cut on my colorful cards!  For the card above, I layered my stamped piece onto Gorgeous Grape and Pineapple Punch cardstock!

I have a challenge for my Luv 2 Stamp Group this coming month to create projects using their own inked rainbow pad, to earn fun prizes, so I thought I would play along and give them some examples to jump start their creativity!!  Thinking about joining my team?  click here to read more - and don't forget about the 10 free ink pad offer in July when you join!

To create the rainbow butterfly die cut, I tapped the rainbow pad across my Whisper White cardstock, then spritzed it with water... after it was dry, I die cut the butterfly in my Big Shot.

Some TIPS for creating your own rainbow pad...

  • think about a color combo you'd like to use
  • do you want a true "ROYGBIV" rainbow? or a monochromatic pad with different shades of all one color?
  • get out your Stampin' Write markers and test out your idea on cardstock first
  • get out your ink refills and fill your Spectrum pad!

For this Spectrum rainbow pad, I used this color combo:

When inking a larger stamp such as the butterfly below (from the Beautiful Day stamp set) or the Thank You stamp from the Thankful Thoughts set, you can get almost all, if not all, of the colors on your pad.  When using smaller images like the heart from the Ribbon of Courage set (1st card in this post), you can just capture a couple of the colors!

Tip:  I stamped this butterfly once on the card and again on a scrap, cut it out and then added it as a 2nd layer to the card.. I love the extra dimension! I also added some Glitter Enamel dots and did a little splattering with my Stampin' Write marker!

 The top fold card base is Mango Melody cardstock.

Double Easel Fancy Fold card and Die Cutting Tips

 

Thank you to everyone who joined me live on Facebook on Tuesday at 2pm to see how to create these beautiful Tropical Chic double easel cards!!  If you missed it, I've posted the video below in this blog post so you can see my inspiration for these cards and how to create them!

Tropical Chic Double Easel (or Z Fold) card idea featuring Stampin' UP! paper stack, stamp set and framelit dies, by Patty Bennett. Supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

The card above features the special day greeting from the Stitched All Around bundle, stamped onto a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval, and then layered onto a Stitched all around label die cut with the Tropical Chic 6x6 paper stack.

To create your own Tropical Chic card gather these supplies:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock
  • 2 6x6 sheets of Tropical Chic paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for stamping
  • ink pad colors of your choice
  • Tropical Chic bundle
  • Stitched Label die cut and Stitched oval die cut
  • trimmer and Big Shot
  • adhesive and bone folder

 All supplies are available in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for clickable links.

Watch the video below in this post for step by step "how to's" :)

One thing I love about this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, and then pops up easily into this gorgeous easel display when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!

 I love the greetings in the Treat Time stamp set (pg 35) so I used one on the card above/below.

 Be sure to pin or print out the cutting and scoring dimensions below so that you can make this card!!  Mix and match the cardstock colors and designer paper patterns to suite your taste.  I took my color palette from the Tropical Chic 6x6 designer paper stack colors. :)

 As I was creating this project, I thought about 4 things that I do when die cutting that might help you!!

  1.  If you know you are doing to do a lot of die cutting with a particular set, it's helpful to buy a 2nd set of dies, if that's within your budget
  2. Store your dies on a magnet sheet so they don't get lost - I use these from Stamp-n-Storage and I prefer the 6x7 size
  3. I use a Post-It "tab" sticky note to hold dies in place that seem like they want to shift around as they go through the Big Shot
  4. As I am die cutting, I put all the little pieces into a little container next to my Big Shot so they don't get lost.

Color Combo Tip!

As you are working on your project, take a photo of the colors you are using.  If you want to share the idea, or recreate the project later, you'll know exactly which colors you used!

Multi colored roses - Healing Hugs video tutorial

 

I was so excited to experiment with adding more than one color on each Healing Hugs rose stamp, and you might have watched my Facebook Live video tutorial on Sunday as I demonstrated this technique live! If you missed it, scroll down in this post for the video replay.

The Healing Hugs rose and leaves are a new type of stamp called "Distinktive".  It's a photorealistic type of image which is enhanced when you use more than one color!  (see pg 110 for the set and tips from Stampin' UP!).

Healing Hugs Rose Cards - new Stampin' Up! set

 I am super in love with the beautiful rose stamp in the Healing Hugs stamp set from Stampin' Up!   Of course you know I love roses, and you know I love COLOR... so I had to combine those and create some super colorful cards for today's post!!

 

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 If you haven't discovered the Healing Hugs stamp set yet, it's in your new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, on pg 11o, and you can also see a couple more samples on pg 104/105.  This is one of the new "Distinktive" designs (read more on pg 110) and I just stamped each rose in a separate color as shown here, but, I'm going to try the layering color technique with sponge daubers, next!!

Shop for this set in my online store HERE:

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

My bright, fun, zippy color combo for these cards: Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove & Poppy Parade!

Detailed Trio Corner Punch paired with the Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

My little secret weapon for this card is the darling corner detail.  I used the new Detailed Trio Corner punch on the upper left corner of each of the 4x4 Whisper White cardstock pieces.  I punched with the corner rounder and the little detailed image to create this look. You'll find this punch on pg 211 in the catalog, #146320

The sentiment on this card was created with 2 stamps from the Botanical Bliss stamp set, mounted on the same block.

How I organized my NEW Stampin' Up! ink pads!

 

This year I made a big change in my craft room and organized all of my Stampin' UP! cardstock, ink pads and reinkers in Rainbow Order!!  I have been thinking about it for years, and with the new color revamp this year, I decided rather than memorizing which colors were in which Stampin' UP! color families, I would just change to rainbow order!

Results: I LOVE IT!

 

Stampin' UP! ink pads in rainbow order. Patty's craft room organization tips.  Stamp-n-Storage wood storage units.  www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE: my ink pad storage units from Stamp-n-Storage, show 2 styles of ink pad holders.  The one on the bottom is for the new style Stampin' UP! ink pads only (it won't fit the old style). The one on top is the old style (see this post), and holds the old and new style pads.   They offer MANY different styles of ink pad holders, and from June 8 to 18, 2018 you'll find some of them on sale at 15% off!

Above: I redid my reinkers into rainbow order as well!!  They are all in a drawer next to me as I craft, so I can easily grab them to reink my pads or use them for watercoloring techniques.  I used retired candy dots and glimmer dots, some colored with Stampin' Blends or Sharpie markers, to try to capture a color close to the ink color, then I wrote the name on the lid with a fine tip Sharpie.

Like I mentioned above, I LOVE the rainbow order for my supplies!   The great news is.. if you try it and you don't like it, it's so easy to change ... but for me, this was a GREAT change!  I love just being able to "browse the greens", or "browse the reds" at a glance!! :)

Stampin' Up! Color Combo Ideas & Video

I wanted to figure out a way to REALLY get to know ALL of the new Stampin' UP! colors.. so I started by looking at each color group in the rainbow and making the cards below! 

I used all of the colors minus the neutral grays, tans, browns and black. 

I hope you find this look at the Stampin' Up! "color rainbow" helpful!

Stampin' UP! 2018 Color Family revamp: a study in Stampin' Up! color combos in rainbow order by Patty Bennett  www.PattyStamps.com

Step 1: Buy the assortment packs of cardstock from each color family (available 6/1/18 to customers)

Step 2:  Cut all packs in 1/2 for card bases, and cut the other halves into 1/4 sheets. 

Step 3:  Check out which colors seem to be in the same "rainbow" color groups. Make piles.

Step 4:  Create cards with all of the Stampin' UP! colors in "rainbow order" using the Painted Glass stamp set (rainbow), Love What You Do set (greeting), Rooted in Nature set (leaf and branch), White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon, and the stitched shape framelits and Layering Oval Framelits.

For this exercise, I wanted to see how each of the color groups worked together within their own color group.

Below:  Stampin' Up! shades of red: Lovely Lipstick, Poppy Parade, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Merry Merlot.  I found that Merry Merlot could either go with the reds or with the deeper purples or the vibrant pinks like Berry Burst.

Trying out "Rainbow Order" this year

I'm trying something new this year!  Instead of organizing my Stampin' Up! cardstock in the 4 color families and In Colors in separate paper holders, I combined them all into one big rainbow!  I am LOVING my rainbow order cardstock organization so far!!! :)

As you may know, Stampin' Up! is taking the opportunity to revamp our color families in honor of their 30 Year Anniversary!!  Rather than put all my new colors into the new families, I decided to see how I'd like it in rainbow order!

 

Patty's Stampin' UP! Rainbow of Cardstock 2018 Color Revamp!

My inspiration came from Monica Gale.  Her cardstock is organized in one long horizontal rainbow row, but I don't have room to do that.. so this is how I have mine! 

You can see Monica's rainbow list here.

You will notice that I modified my order a little from hers, because I put the white, vanilla, and neutrals on the left, separate from the rainbow.  I am LOVING this rainbow order so far!!  Do what works for you, and the great news is, you can change it around anytime! :)

I love my paper holders, see the Stamp-n-Storage 8-1/2x11 cardstock holders here

Be sure to click the option to include the 8-1/2x11 or 12x12 paper holder label system to match your paper holder size.. I find them super helpful.. here is how they look:

Color Coordinated Stampin' UP! products

 

I often hear crafters say they struggle with color coordination. 

One of the great things about Stampin' UP! crafting products is that they have taken the guess work out of color coordination.  Each Stampin' Up! color offers ink pads, cardstock, markers, accessories and more that coordinate perfectly together!

In Addition: Each Stampin' UP! color family works wonderfully together.  Pick out 3 to 6 colors in a family group and you have a terrific color combo!! (then branch out and grab a color from another family plus a neutral!! The possibilities are endless!)

Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-Bration stamped card ideas

 

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018 Heartfelt Blooms floral stamp set card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring In Colors and the Petal Pair embossing folder.

 

I pulled out some Stampin' UP! In Colors to create today's cards for you!  These Heartfelt Blooms cards feature Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst and one "non" In Color, Calypso Coral.

 

The beautiful Heartfelt Blooms set is one of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration stamp sets you might select with your $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!  See it on page 4 of the brochure, or pictured below:

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018 Heartfelt Blooms floral stamp set

Speaking of In Colors.. please do take note of the 2016-2018 In Color Palette (here)... because retiring In Color ink pad refills and cardstock are always hard to come by after they retire.. so don't be stuck without your favorites!

 

Stampin' Tip!

CRAFTING TIP: use your Stampin' Blends alcohol marker to custom color your Metallic Enamel Shape accents to match your handstamped cards!

 

Design Tips to Note:

  • Use a Stampin' Blends marker to color your Metallic Enamel shapes to coordinate with your project (above).  I used Light Rich Razzleberry and Light Calypso Coral on these cards
  • Use the Petal Pair embossing folder (below) on the left side of this card for an added touch of dimension and flowers (it's on pg 23 of the 2018 Occasions catalog and EASY TO MISS!)
  • Try out several different ribbons when making cards like these.. I used Peekaboo Peach Seam Binding, Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon, Berry Burst Seam Binding and the FREE Calypso Coral shimmery ribbon (pg 9 in the Sale-a-Bration brochure).   (See all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. click any photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store)

Fall Watercolor Card Idea

 You are in for a treat today!  Look at this gorgeous fall pumpkin card featuring a watercolor background and the Pick a Pumpkin bundle from pg 51 of the 2017 Holiday catalog from Stampin' Up!

 

Pick a Pumpkin fall card featuring the Stampin' Up! bundle from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  Watercolor wash background created with Fresh Fig ink and Aquapainter on watercolor paper.

 

I created this card while stamping one day with Cindee.. she had the design all worked out and all the pumpkin pieces die cut!! We did a watercolor wash on the background with an Aquapainter and Fresh Fig ink on watercolor paper, then layered all the stamped and die cut pumpkins, leaves, swirls and branches.  How amazing is this card!?


Save 10% on the bundle! Pick a Pumpkin fall card featuring the Stampin' Up! bundle from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  Watercolor wash background created with Fresh Fig ink and Aquapainter on watercolor paper.

 

The Pick a Pumpkin bundle certainly goes well beyond Halloween and can be used for cards, treats, table favors, and Thanksgiving decor!

SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle!

Stamp set and coordinating dies available in my online store!

Check out the gorgeous fall color combo below!

 

Fall color combo for Pick a Pumpkin fall card featuring the Stampin' Up! bundle from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  Watercolor wash background created with Fresh Fig ink and Aquapainter on watercolor paper.

 

2 details that really make the card outstanding are using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up various layers of the die cut pumpkins, and also speckling the card while the background was still a little wet by flicking the tip of the Fresh Fig marker onto the background.

Video tutorial for Stamping on Glossy Paper - Adirondak Chair Beach Card

 

I was super excited to see Glossy paper come back to the Stampin' Up! catalog this year! (missed it? it's on pg 194, #144240).  I started stamping on glossy paper about 30 years ago.. it was such a hot trend with bold stamps and Marvy Markers, it's come and gone over the years as a trend, and now it's fun to explore the many uses for it in my craft room once again!

Today I am sharing a video tutorial to show you how to create this beach scene card with glossy paper, Stampin' UP! ink pads, stamps and accessories!

Enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW, and create one of these cards with me!

The darling red beach chair is die cut from the Seasonal Layers framelits. This adirondak chair framelit die is so popular, and I can see why!!  I stamped the palms and grass using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, and the little red flowers are from the Hello Friend set.  All of these supplies as well as the glossy paper, ink pads, stamps and accessories are available in my online Stampin' Up! store.  Click any of the product links at the bottom of this blog post to go directly to my store online. Please leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.

 As shown in the video, here is the Stampin' Up! Color combo I used for this project:

If you watched the video above, you'll see how easy this card really is.  Here is a visual reminder of the steps I demonstrated in the video:

 As usual, I could not decide on just one greeting for this card, so I made several and used 3 different greetings. 

Live Laugh Love and Enjoy the Little Things are both found in the Layering Love stamp set (pg 46 in the current catalog) and the Hello Friend stamp is found in the Hello Friend stamp set, pg 17.

Each greeting is stamped with Island Indigo ink to coordinate with the Island Indigo card bases.
