Color Fusers Blog Hop: March 2017

Color Fusers Stampin' Up! Color Combo Blog Hop - March 2017

 

I think you are going to enjoy this gorgeous In Color Stampin' Up! color combination!  I am participating in the Color Fusers Blog Hop again this month and am excited about my Gift Box project today!  For our challenges, we are required to use at least 3 of the colors each month, so I selected the 3 In Colors from the March 2017 Color Fuser combination.

My White Gift Box project features Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.

Instead of a card I decided to create a gift box using the Stampin' Up! White Gift Box (#142000) which is 3" x 3" x 3" and comes with an acetate sleeve that you can slide onto the box.  I wrapped In Color Designer Paper around the box, and then decorated the front with doilies and die cut flowers and leaves from the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems coordinating framelit set. 

I elected to put the decoration for the top of the box on the acetate sleeve.

After wrapping the box with 2 layers of In Color designer paper and strips of Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper, I added a Lace Doily and an In Color doily (Watermelon Wonder) and tied it all up with Peekaboo Peach ribbon!  Then I decorated it with the flowers (shown below) and White Perfect Accents in the flower centers.

To decorate my box, I stamped the Special Reason flower on the printed polkadot Mint Macaron In Color designer paper and also on Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut the flowers with the Stylish Stems framelits to add to my box.

Money Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you purchase the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems framelits together!  Order #144719 for the wood mount bundle or #144720 for the clear mount bundle!

 

Have fun - stamp in printed designer paper for a whole new look! Stampin' UP! Special Reason flower stamp.

 

Don't forget… Watermelon Wonder is one of 5 Stampin' Up! In Colors retiring SOON!  See THIS POST for all the info!

I decided to also die cut some of the Stylish Stems leaves with the Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper to add to my box!  I love the little splash of glitz!  I'm not sure who I am giving this box to, or for what occasion (I do have someone in mind), but I thought that "celebrate" would be a good sentiment to use no matter what I decide to put in the box!

Do you love those Mint Macaron glimmer leaves!?  I do!!  Get your glimmer paper free with your $50 order!  See THIS POST for more details!

 The stamped Celebrate image and the banner are both found in the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the Occasions catalog.  I die cut the banner with the Bunch of Banners framelit set.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

 

Color Fusers blog hop February 2017 - Stampin' Up! Color Combo

 

The Color Fusers Design Team is back with fun projects for you featuring the YUMMY Stampin' Up!  color combo shown above: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach.

I ended up using all 4 colors on the card in the center below, and used 3 of the 4 colors on the other 2 cards.  Each card features THREE (yes, count 'em 3!!) Sale a Bration stamp sets!! AND the delicious Sale-a-Bration metallic ribbon!! How did I manage to do that!? 🙂

 

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration stamp sets on Thank You Cards.  Color Fuser Blog Hop for February 2017.  Avant Garden, Delicate Details and So Very Much stamp sets featured.

 

Did you know you can select a free gift with purchase through March 31, 2017?  The 3 Sale a Bration stamp sets shown on these cards AND the beautiful metallic ribbon are 4 of the choices of free gifts!! 

CLICK HERE to read more about Sale a Bration.

This top fold card features all 4 of the Color Fuser colors this month.  In addition to stamping, I also sponged Peekaboo Peach around the edges of the Whisper White cardstock, and then mounted it onto Calypso Coral cardstock before putting it onto the top folded Bermuda Bay card. I also flicked some Clear Wink of Stella onto this card.. it's shimmery in person!

Each card has an image from the Delicate Details lace stamp set stamped in Peekaboo Peach about 2" up from the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the flowers from Avant Garden in Watermelon Wonder ink, and then the Thank You from the So Very Much set in either Early Espresso or Bermuda Bay.  I think the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon is just the perfect finishing touch to these cards!!

I used the speckle stamp in the Avant Garden set and Peekaboo Peach ink to speckle some dots onto each card, then flicked some Gold Wink of Stella on each card to tie in with the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon.  I REALLY love this ribbon from the Sale a Bration brochure.. another free choice through March 31, 2017.

The cards above and below are similar, but I switched the layers of Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral because I couldn't decide which way I liked it best?  What do you think?

Color Fusers Blog Hop IS BACK! January 2017

 

After a little winter break, the amazing Color Fusers Design Team is BACK!!

We are excited to bring you a fun line up of projects today, all featuring this amazing, fresh Stampin' Up! color combo of Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

 

Color Fusers Blog Hop color combo for January 2017. Stampin' Up! colors Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla

 

 

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I was in a watercoloring mood, so I created the background of this top fold card with Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, reinkers and my AquaPainter.  The folded card is a Stampin' Up! In Color: Sweet Sugarplum.

I wet the watercolor paper, turned it over and wet the other side, then added color from the drops of reinker using my AquaPainter.  By wetting both sides, the paper doesn't curl 🙂

I let the colors bleed together and enjoyed the results!

Note: Sweet Sugarplum on watercolor paper (it's a vanilla color) is brown-ish compared to putting it on white.. but it's still pretty!

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Hello stamp from the Vertical Garden set (new in the 2017 Occasions catalog, page 22, #142996) in Sweet Sugarplum on Very Vanilla cardstock.  It's a 2 step stamp, so it gives you that shadow effect!

 

Here is a fun crafting tip for you … after cutting the pieces of Stampin' Up! watercolor paper for my cards, I ended up with strips left over.  I dabbed on some water and some color and then die cut the flowers using up the scraps!!  How great is that!?

 

Watercolor Wash craft tip.. use up scraps of watercolor paper by dabbing on color and then die cutting or punching shapes! by Patty Bennett

 

I added the die cut flowers from the Succulent framelits set (pg 21 in the Occasions catalog, #142757) with glue dots to my card and topped off each one with the gold Metallic Enamel shape.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 1

 

Color fusers blog hop sept 2016

Welcome to part 1 of the September Color Fusers Design Team Blog Hop, featuring 4 wonderful Stampin' Up!  Colors: Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum!  We are so glad you have joined us on this blog hop and hope you enjoy all of the cards and projects we have to share with you!  Please be sure to click on all of the links at the bottom of this post to visit all of the wonderful Stampin' UP! blogs!

When working on my stamped project for today, I noticed that the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper has nearly the above color combo, so I started with a piece of the floral paper from that package (#141654, pg 173) and then I altered it by adding Rich Razzleberry flowers and Mint Macaron leaves to it!

 

  Blooms & Bliss altered color combo designer paper from Stampin' Up!.  Color Fusers September color challenge.  Floral note card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

 The JUST A NOTE greeting is found on page 49 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I stamped it on Whisper White with Rich Razzleberry ink, and die cut it with the Layering Ovals framelits.   The circles are all die cut with the Layering Circles framelits with the Fancy Frost paper and the Blooms & Bliss paper.

Below, you can see the transformation from the Blooms and Bliss color combo to the Color Fusers September Color Challenge combo!!

 

MAKEOVER: Blooms & Bliss altered color combo designer paper from Stampin' Up!.  Color Fusers September color challenge.  Floral note card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I loved adding all the layers of cut out flowers to this card, on top of die cut circles and a scalloped circle.  The flowers are all from a stamp set called Fresh Fruit, on pg 149 of the annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #141770 in the online store.  The leaves are from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, found on pg 49, #141531 or 141534 in the online store.

I stamped and cut out all the flowers with Paper Snips.  Some flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock, and as you can see above, some were stamped on the Blooms & Bliss paper!

My finished piece is mounted on Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.

 

Lots of lovely Enamel Shape circle dots in the flower centers finish off the color combo. 

Don't forget, Enamel Shapes are ON SALE THROUGH WED. Sept. 7th!!  CLICK HERE.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2016 – Part 2

Color fusers blog hop august

Welcome to part 2 of the August Color Fusers Design Team Blog Hop, featuring 3 wonderful Stampin' Up!  Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Watermelon Wonder!  We are so glad you have joined us on this blog hop and hope you enjoy all of the cards and projects we have to share with you!  Please be sure to click on all of the links at the bottom of this post to visit all of the wonderful Stampin' UP! blogs!

Today's card features one of my favorite stamp sets (and BIG surprise, it's a flower set!), and it's called Penned & Painted. 

 

Penned and Painted handstamped card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, ink and paper and the Color Fusers August Color combo, by Patty Bennett at PattyStamps.com

 

I think these colors work really nicely together on this card! 

This Penned and Painted stamp set is just awesome!!  You can use it in so many different ways, combining all or part of the 3 step stamps for each image!!  Penned & Painted is one of my favorite Stampin' UP! stamp sets right  now..  and you can find it on pg 143 in the 2016 catalog, or #141938 in my online store.

These images give a neat, soft, watercolor look when stamped!

 

Penned and Painted handstamped card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, ink and paper and the Wink of Stella pen, and the Color Fusers August Color combo, by Patty Bennett at PattyStamps.com

 

I used some Cherry Cobbler Cardstock for my Congrats die cut and then added Clear Wink of Stella to the die cut before adhering it to the vellum strip with Multipurpose glue.  The Congrats die cut is found in the Sunshine Wishes thinlit set on pg 194 in the 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog (#141489).

Another finishing touch was to add the 3 Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes in the center of the flower.  All of the Enamel Shapes are found on pg 177, and the Regal package with Cherry Cobbler is #141681

The 1/8" silver ribbon adds another pretty touch to this card, bringing in the Smoky Slate color.  Find all of the Stampin' UP! ribbons on pages 178 and 179 in the annual catalog.  Find the Silver ribbon here in my online store #132137

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2016 – Part 1

Color fusers blog hop august

  Welcome to part 1 of the August Color Fusers Design Team Blog Hop, featuring 3 wonderful Stampin' Up!  Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Watermelon Wonder!  We are so glad you have joined us on this blog hop and hope you enjoy all of the cards and projects we have to share with you!  Please be sure to click on all of the links at the bottom of this post to visit all of the wonderful Stampin' UP! blogs!

Today I have 2 projects for you, both featuring the new Thoughtful Branches bundle which will be available tomorrow, Aug. 2 for customer purchase, and our August Color Fuse color combo.  See below in this post for the ordering info for the stamp set, the dies or the bundle.

 

Thoughtful Branches 3x3 notecard by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! bundle, paper, and accessories available at www.pattystamps.com

 

My first card with our Cherry Cobbler, Watermelon Wonder and Smoky Slate color combo features the "flower" or "tree top" portion of the die from this bundle.  I stamped the image in Watermelon Wonder ink onto Watermelon Wonder cardstock and die cut it, then added it to a scrap of Whisper White, per my instructions below.

This is a little 3×3 gift card, to be added to a gift bag or wrapped box.

 

Create a fun background  with the Thoughtful Branches die cut for this 3x3 notecard by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! bundle, paper, and accessories available at www.pattystamps.com

 

I added a mat of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and layered it onto a folded 3×3 Watermelon Wonder card. The striped paper and "for you" in the Smoky Slate color completes the color combo challenge.  The silver ribbon just finishes it off perfectly!  The sweet scalloped Smoky Slate piece of cardstock was die cut using the new Layering Circles framelits from Stampin' Up!

 

———————————————————————

More info on Thoughtful Branches Bundle available Aug. 2nd:

The bundle features a 20+  piece stamp set and 9 dies in the framelit set!  This will be a limited time offer set in August, starting Aug. 2nd while supplies last.. so be sure to add this to your August shopping list! :)  Click to download a .pdf showing this great bundle!

———————————————————————

 

Card #2, also featuring our August Color Fuse combo, features the stamps from the Thoughtful Branches set and subtle background colors applied with the Sponge Brayer on Whisper White cardstock.

 

Use a Sponge Brayer for a soft background for this Thoughtful Branches card by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! bundle, paper, and accessories available at www.pattystamps.com

 

I was aiming for a soft sunset feeling with this background so I applied color with my Sponge Brayer to the Whisper White cardstock with Cherry Cobbler at the top, then some Watermelon Wonder, and then the Smoky Slate for the "ground".  I stamped the trees and grass from the Thoughtful Branches set in Smoky Slate ink, and the bird and greeting in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I love the greetings and font in this stamp set, don't you!?

 

Great Color Fuse color combo featured in this Thoughtful Branches card by Patty Bennett featuring sponge brayer background and  Stampin' UP! bundle, paper, and accessories available at www.pattystamps.com

 

Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon finishes off the card.  Layers of Watermelon Wonder and Smoky Slate patterned paper on the folded Cherry Cobbler card complete the Color Fuse trio for this months challenge.
