As I mentioned in my video tutorial above, I colored the background of one card with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends marker.  It just lends a completely different feel to this Petal Passion designer paper!

Possibly my Most Favorite Card EVER

 

I think I may have created my most favorite card EVER.... can you guess which one below is my favorite?

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

I made both of these cards by coloring with my Stampin' Blends markers onto Petal Passion black and white designer paper!

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

For the card above, I colored with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends markers on the designer paper in the background, then layered a piece of Vellum cardstock over it to soften the boldness, and added the Thank You and die cut flowers.  I colored the Thank You with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends and the flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set with the Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  The card base is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and I LOVE how it really makes the colors pop and feel so fresh!

The Thank You stamp is found in an "online only" set (it's not in any catalog yet). The set is called Color Me Happy and can be found HERE in my online store for wood mount, or HERE for clear mount..  I stamped it onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink, then colored them with each of the pairs of Stampin' Blends markers!

They are die cut with the Stitched Shape oval framelit die.  The shadow on each Thank You is colored with the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

The set and kit are available separately or as a bundle.  See the BOTTOM of this post for all online store links.

Color Me Happy stamp set and card kit by Stampin' Up! - perfect for coloring with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 When adding vellum to your project, it's best to use adhesive where you know something else will cover it, so I added adhesive right in the center under the oval "thank you" and the flower die cut.

 

Add vellum on top of any design to soften the colors and bold patterns.

 

The card below also features coloring on the Petal Passion designer paper with Stampin' Blends with Cherry Cobbler and Real Red cardstock.  I finished off the card with a piece of Pear Pizzazz shimmery ribbon.

Heart Happiness and Stampin' Blends

 

Today's card is brought to you by the Petal Passion Suite and the Heart Happiness stamp set in the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog!  The floral heart stamp image makes my heart happy, so I think the stamp set it apply named!! :)

 

Heart Happiness card idea featuring floral heart stamp colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers. Petal Passion Memories & More card and Petal Passion desgner paper complete this black and white card idea.

I stamped the floral heart image from Heart Happiness on Thick Whisper White cardstock, with Memento Black ink, then colored it with a couple shades of Stampin' Blends markers (Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, and Old Olive).  Then I decided to color all the white area around the flowers and leaves with my light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.  I die cut it with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelit before mounting it to my card.

Flying Home Birds Nest Easter Card Idea

Stampin' Up! was so generous to give us this Flying Home stamp set at a leaders event in November in Salt Lake, and I immediately fell in love with it! I love birdies, I feed them in my backyard, and I love coloring in the images in this set with the Stampin' Blends markers!

 

Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog Flying Home stamp set - bird nest card colored with Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers, by Patty Bennett

 

After stamping the bird nest image onto Thick Whisper White paper with Memento ink, I colored it with Stampin' Blends markers.  I colored in the background with light Pool Party Stampin' Blends to give it the look and feel of the birds nest being on a branch outside in the sunshine!

Find the Flying Home stamp set on page 41 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or click the links below to see it in my online Stampin' Up! store.

Above:  At first I just created this card on a small thick Whisper White Note card (top image) and then I decided to "step it up" and I layered the Whisper White panel onto a Sale-a-Bration Tutti-Frutti blue polkadot card base with some extra layers of designer paper from the Tutti-Frutti paper stack.  I really like them both.  Do you have a preference?

Below: you can see that I stamped the bird house images a few times on the card in the background with Crumb Cake ink, as well as on the note card envelope flap.  I also layered the stitched shape circle onto a scalloped Daffodil Delight circle from the Layering Circle framelits (all products available in my online store.. just click any product photo images at the bottom of this post). The final touch for the birthday version was some Linen Thread tied around the note card.

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)

 Tis the season for thank you notes!

The Color Me Happy stamp set is a great one for Thank You notes!  It's an online purchase only, you won't find this set in a catalog.  You can purchase it by clicking on the links at the bottom of this blog post.

After coloring the Thank You image with the Calypso Coral and Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends on Thick Whisper White cardstock, I die cut it with the Stitched Shape oval framelit. (remember to always stamp with the Black Memento Ink pad when coloring with Stampin' Blends).

I paired the Thank You image with the heart from the Ribbon of Courage set, and colored them both with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. They color and blend beautifully!

Using Stampin' Blends Markers on Hearts Come Home die cuts

 I was thrilled to see how nicely the Stampin' Blends markers color on Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, so I decided to just color an entire village for this Christmas card using the Hometown Greetings Stampin' UP! edgelit dies!

Hearts Come Home / Hometown Greetings thinlit dies - Christmas Village card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut houses from the Hometown Greetings edgelit dies / Hearts Come Home bundle, and colored them with my Stampin' Blends markers.  I layered them onto a folded Thick Whisper White card base, measuring 8-1/2" x 4" (when folded).  The key to layering the strips of houses is to use LOTS of Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals to give it a really dimensional look!

Crafting Forever Cards perfect for the Artist

 

It seems like I've had this stamp set for a long time, and now that Stampin' Up! has released the Stampin' Blends markers, I thought this was the perfect time to bring out this set and practice coloring!  I paired the Crafting Forever stamp set with the Pick a Pattern designer paper for these fun cards.  They make me think of my dad, the artist, with his dozens of paint brushes!

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in the photo below, I used almost all of my new Stampin' Blends markers to color these 2 images of pots with paint brushes. I stamped them on Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento black ink as recommended when coloring with the Blends markers, and I had so much fun coloring!  Then I die cut them with the Stitched Shape Oval framelit dies and added them to my cards.

 

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers and  Crafting Forever stamp set pot with paint brushes.

 

For the card below, I added the Stitched Shape oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped oval die cut, then added some Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to the top fold Thick Whisper White card, wrapped around 2 patterns from the Pick a Pattern paper pack!

I stamped the greeting on Thick Whisper White cardstock as well, and die cut the one above with the Stitched Shape oval and the one below with the Stitched Shape circle.  I added Black Rhinestones to the tag above.  I inked the entire greeting with Bermuda Bay ink then colored "creative" with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker before stamping.

Although these 2 cards use basically the same supplies, it's fun to see how differently they turned out.

The card base and scalloped oval above are Tangerine Tango cardstock, and the greeting is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink, to go with my terra cotta pot :) I colored one of the silver metallic shape hearts with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Blends marker to perfectly embellish the greeting!

All of the patterned paper designs in these cards are from the Pick a Pattern paper pack HERE online.

Coloring with Stampin' Blends: Doggie in Santa Hat

 

How cute is this Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends doggie with the Santa Hat!?

I absolutely could not wait to share this with you!

 

Stampin' Blends alcohol makers with Bella & Friends doggie stamp, and Santa's Suit santa hat!

 

This image is stamped using two stamp sets:  Bella & Friends, and Santa's Suit.  The hat is masked with a post it note after stamping, then the doggie is stamped on top.  (details in the video below).  Stamp using the Memento Black ink pad for best results when using Stampin' Blends markers!

I colored it with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers after watching a GREAT video tutorial by Stampin' Sacha!  It was so easy when I followed her instructions, so I thought you'd love to see it too!

The secret to creating this amazing shading, aside from using the new Stampin' Blends markers is to use the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend marker first... watch the video below and you'll see what I mean.

Coloring with Stampin' Blends markers from Stampin' UP! with Falling Flowers stamp set and Delightful Daisy Night of Navy designer paper by Patty Bennett

 Above: coloring done with Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends markers

I used a piece of the Night of Navy patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy designer paper pack as the background and inspiration for this card.  I added the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon, and colored White Perfect Accents to the card to carry the Navy theme, and then let the colored flower and punched leaves "pop".

The leaves are stamped and punched using the Painted Autumn bundle (Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Lemon Lime Twist ink), and the greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams set, stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White.

 Each flower is stamped with Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends markers, then die cut with the May Flowers framelits, and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the thick Whisper White Note Cards.
