Retiring Just Add Color Designer Paper Card Ideas

 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.

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.

Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas

 

I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett
 

For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases.   I used a couple of packs to make these.

For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.

These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

 

Stamp flower and butterfly images from the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set onto the Painted with Love designer paper, then cut out for beautiful images on your handmade cards!

I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flowers and butterflies .. I was thankful that the TSA didn't take away my handy dandy Paper Snips!!  I was cutting them out on the plane on the way to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.

Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea!  You can see her cards here.

I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image.  That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae.  I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.

Petal Passion designer paper - still my Favorite

 With each new Stampin' Up! Catalog I find a "new favorite" designer paper, and with the Occasions 2018 catalog, my favorite is the Petal Passion paper!  It's black and white, and can be used as is for card making or other crafting projects, or colored with Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write markers, sponges, sponge daubers, spritzers, sponge brayers, etc.!

 See it HERE on the Retiring List!  Get it before it's sold out!

 

Color the Black and White Petal Passion floral designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Card idea from Patty Bennett

 

For my card below, I used a sponge brayer with Calypso Coral ink to gradually add ink to the Petal Passion paper from the bottom up.  I allowed the ink to "run out" toward the top for an ombre effect.  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE for more info.

ABOVE: The Thank You greeting is found in the awesome Color Me Happy stamp set - this is an ONLINE ONLY set (not found in the current catalogs).  See it HERE.  The flowers are found in the Falling Flowers set.  You can see my Stampin' Blends video tutorial for coloring them HERE.  Both images were stamped with Memento Black ink and colored/shaded with Stampin' Blends markers.

 

BELOW:  I've shared this idea before on my blog and in my Stampin' Blends Videos, and this is a great technique to use on this Petal Passion paper... color the "background" (between the flowers) with a light colored Stampin' Blends marker like the Light Pool Party marker, and then color the flowers.  It lends such an amazing finish to the card!!  (special note.. the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends is on backorder due to the popularity of this color, but you can still order it and be on the waiting list to receive it in June when it comes back in stock).

Yesterday while I was coloring these cute doggies and kitties from Bella & Friends and the Pretty Kitty stamp sets, with my Stampin' Blends markers, Stampin' UP! announced that since these markers are SO POPULAR and the demand is so high, and the backorders are continuing to increase with the popularity of the product, Stampin' UP! has decided to turn off the ordering for all Stampin' Blends markers on Friday, March 23, at Noon MT.  They will become available to order again toward the end of May when the supplier can catch up with the demand.

SO!!! Order them NOW if you want to take advantage of receiving Sale-a-Bration gifts with your order and get on the list to receive them when they come back in stock!  See them all HERE in my online store.

Copper Dragonfly - Springtime Foils metallic cards

 

I had a lovely stack of Copper Foil Dragonfly die cuts on my desk, and decided they looked amazing with the Sale-a-Bration Springtime Foils paper, so these are the cards I came up with!  Did you know you can get a pack of this 12x12 Springtime Foils paper as your free gift with $50 online order!? Wow! hurry!! expires 3/31/18!

Copper Dragonfly die cut Springtime Foils cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring.

Each card base is a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card, scored at 5-1/2" and then 2 various sized pieces of Springtime Foils paper (3 of the 4 patterns) on the base.  I tied some Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon around each one and then added the Copper Foil paper dragonfly die cut with mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Easy!

 

Springtime Foils Paper from Stampin' Up!, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring by Patty Bennett

After I colored the Springtime Foils paper with my Stampin' Blends markers, as shown above, I cut it up into 3"x4" pieces so that I could "spread the love" and include it on several cards, not just 1 or 2 :)

 

Copper Dragonfly die cut Springtime Foils cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring.

  

This card is equally as beautiful without the colored Springtime foils paper... see below! So pretty!

 

Springtime foils paper sale a bration flower card 3 pattysatmps stampin up copper dragonfly

Tips & Resources:

  •  I die cut a vellum circle to place behind each dragonfly, using the Stitched Shape Framelits.  This just gives a little bit of focus to the dragonfly against the printed background.

  • Use the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the body of the dragonfly.. perfect size!

  • Stamp the lace image from Southern Serenade in Crumb Cake ink .. stamp off first if you want a lighter image.
  • If you don't have a ribbon to match your card, color it with Stampin' Blends - SEE THIS POST.
  • Color each of the flowers with both the light and dark Stampin' Blends, and color the leaves with the light and dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends.

  

Tips for creating a Handmade floral cards featuring Stampin' UP! Southern Serenade stamp set, Springtime Foils paper and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I created the actual card base from the striped piece of Springtime Foils paper, but you could also just put a piece of Springtime Foils paper on top of a folded Thick Whisper White card base.  I also added a piece of a contrasting Springtime Foils paper to the bottom 1/3 of the card, then added coordinating ribbon to each card.

You can make these too!  All the Stampin' UP! supplies I used are listed at the bottom of this post.. click on any product image to go right to my online store!

Easter Treat Cello Bag Idea

 Did you notice the adorable bunny image in the We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up! stamp set?  It's on page 39 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and I think he's pretty cute!! (or here online).  I inked only the bunny and colored him with Stampin' Blends to make tags for my Easter Treat cello bags!

Easter Treat Cello Bag idea featuring Stampin' Up! We Must Celebrate bunny stamp and Stampin' Blends markers, by Patty Bennett

 

I filled 3x6 gusseted cello bags with various Easter Candy, then made tags for them with the bunny stamp.  I think they are so cute!

You can make these! All of these Stampin' Up! Supplies are available in my online store.. click any product photo link at the bottom of this post.  You'll need to shop for your own candy though.. and warning.. you might need to sample it before filling the bags... just sayin'. Cuz, that's what I did.

On the tag above, I also die cut grass with the Picnic Basket Builder framelits and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, then die cut it with the Layering Ovals framelits.  To finish off the tag, I just added a hint of color with the Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends and then added some self-adhesive Tutti-Frutti sequins!  I tied up the bag with 3/8" metallic edge Berry Burst ribbon.

For the bunny tag above, I colored him with a touch of Light Crumb Cake and some Ivory Stampin' Blends and just a touch of Dark Pink Pirouette, then die cut him with the scalloped oval /Layering Ovals framelits. The middle layer is Flirty Flamingo, and  I had a polkadot oval on my desk from THIS PROJECT, so I just used it as my final layer.

The ribbon is the FREE Sale-a-Bration shimmer ribbon in Calypso Coral (yours free with a $50 order through 3/31/18).

The Cello Bags are 3"x6" with gusseted sides so you can fit quite a bit of candy in them if you want to.  They are on page 195 in the current Annual catalog, or HERE online. I'm sure it's not easy to see in the photo but I also filled the bag above with the Sweet Soiree Shreddie.

Easter Bunny Candy Treat - Stampin' UP! Lots of Love Box

Make a quick and easy Easter Treat Box with the Lots to Love box framelits!  They are so EASY to put together! Just 2 die cut pieces and 2 strips of adhesive are all you need!  I created this cute Easter / Spring Candy Box treat with the Lots to Love box framelits, Painted with Love designer paper and the cute "A Good Day" stamp set all found in the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog.

 

Easter Candy Treat box idea featuring Stampin' UP! Lots to Love box framelits, Painted with Love designer paper and cute bunny stamp from the "A Good Day" stamp set, by Patty Bennett

Above: the treat box is die cut with the Painted with Love designer paper and it's the perfect weight for these boxes!  I put some Berry Burst Shreddie (pg 13 Occasions catalog #145562) into the box along with cute Easter Bunny candy.  I used Berry Burst 3/8" metallic edge ribbon to tie around the box!  The greeting is from the Badges & Banners set, and punched with the Duet Banner punch.

Below: I love all the fun layering possibilities using the "A Good Day" stamp set (pg 17 in the 2018 Occasions catalog) and the coordinating 1-1/8" and 1-3/8" Scallop circle punches!  I love stamping several images, punching them out and layering them, like I did on the bunny stamped scalloped circle below!

I stamped the bunny with Memento black ink on Whisper White cardstock so I could color it with the Calypso Coral and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Markers.  In addition to the scalloped circle punches, I ended up layering the bunny onto a Berry Burst scalloped circle die cut from the Layering Circle framelits.  I added it to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals.

After Die cutting the 2 pieces for the box, I die cut an oval in one of the pieces, then cut a piece of Window Sheet to fit behind the oval cut out.  This is optional but allows the recipient to see what's in the box!  I highly recommend using the Tear & Tape to adhere the 2 halves of the box together! Easy to use and holds great!

Did you notice the cute little Easter Grass I added to the box?  I used the Picnic Basket framelit set to die cut 2 layers of grass.  One is Old Olive Cardstock and the other layer is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The Picnic Basket framelits are available on page 6 of the current 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, or by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

As I was typing this blog post.. I had to go in the kitchen and sneak one of my Easter Eggs from See's Candy.  This has been a fave since I was a little girl...  I figure about 1 a week for a treat shouldn't be too bad, even though I don't really eat much chocolate.

Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts Flower Wagon Card Idea

 I love this cute flower cart stamp image in the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts stamp set!  I stamped it with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it with a combination of Stampin' Blends markers and a couple of regular Stampin' Write markers, since I also wanted Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist and they are not available in Stampin' Blends.  (HOPING to see them in the next catalog.. wouldn't that be awesome to have MORE colors!!!)  :)

 

Flower Cart Card created with Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts stamp set and Stampin' Blends from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett. Embossing Paste background and White ribbon colored with Stampin' Blends.

This totally adorable, springy stamp set called Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts is on page 34 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, or HERE online for Clear Mount and HERE online for Wood Mount.  I also added the stamped bunny and greeting from the stamp set called "A Good Day", found on pg 17 in the Occasions catalog (see all products used to create this card at the bottom of this  blog post - click any product photo to shop in my online store).

As I was finishing up this card, I was trying to decide which ribbon I wanted to use.. the WOW, it hit me.. color some of the white metallic edge ribbon with the Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends marker!! What a great match!

Above:  notice how the awning on the flower cart is raised?  I stamped the flower cart twice, then colored and cut out the awning and added it with Stampin' Dimensionals over the stamped image on the card.  I also cut out some of the extra flowers and leaves and added them to the card as well.  I colored with a Blender Pen and Lemon Lime Twist ink in between the flowers/leaves so that it wouldn't just be stark white.  The last little sweet addition to the card was to put a pearl in the center of each flower :) :)

The greeting from "A Good Day" stamp set is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and punched out with the "Classic Label" punch. The Mini Stampin' Dimensionals are the perfect size for raising this punched image!

Stampin' UP! Springtime Foils paper colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - fun fold card featuring Petal Palette bundle.

 

Today's handmade card idea features Springtime Foils paper colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and layered with Copper Foil paper and Soft Suede cardstock.  The pretty little stamped flower accent is from the Petal Palette stamp set and also colored with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin' Blends markers.

I created this card one day last month when I was stamping with Cindee... she designed this gorgeous card and had all the parts ready to go and I loved creating it!!  I have all the dimensions for this Fun Fold card listed in the photos below for you.

Stampin' UP! Springtime Foils paper colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - fun fold card featuring Petal Palette bundle.

TIP!

Before die cutting the pretty lattice piece, adhere some Multipurpose Adhesive to your cardstock, THEN run it with the Petals & More thinlit die through the Big Shot, and then just peel off the paper backing and it's ready to stick to your project! Super easy!  It's like having a gorgeous decorative paper sticker!

Adhesive Sheet Tip for Die Cutting the Petal Palette / Petals & More thinlit dies from Stampin' UP!

TIP!

After adhering the die cut to the strip of Soft Suede cardstock, insert the end of the Soft Suede cardstock piece into the Pretty Label punch as shown and then punch the end.. look at the great scalloped end result!!  This is how it looks with a 1" wide piece of cardstock, but you can try it with other widths as well.

Stampin' Blends markers (see them all here) are an amazing way to add color to this paper, or, leave it with the Rose Gold and white images.. either way.. it's gorgeous!

Stampin' UP! Springtime Foils paper colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - fun fold card featuring Petal Palette bundle.

As I've mentioned in my Stampin' Blends videos, I like to add yellow (Daffodil Delight) to my leaves before adding Old Olive.  I think it helps to lighten the leaves, add a little bit of "sun kissed" effect, and also helps tie in with the colors of the flowers.
