I was really intrigued by the colors and patterns in the Woven Threads designer paper, on page 14 of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, so I came up with 5 Square Card ideas to showcase some of the patterns and 3 new In Colors.
The larger square cards are 4-1/4″ square and the 2 small ones are 3″ square. The base cards are Pretty Peacock cardstock and Seaside Spray. They are 2 of the new In Colors for 2019-2021. See them all HERE. Check out the Woven Threads designer paper HERE.
On my small square cards I used Terracotta Tile and Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon paired with Linen Thread and Nature’s Twine.
This Woven Threads Designer Paper actually features ALL 5 of the 2019 2021 In Colors!! I used 3 of them!
Each of the circle focal points is die cut with the Layering Circle framelits (scallop die) and layered onto a Stitched Shape circle.
On the card below I added the Scalloped Lace ribbon. I love all the layers and textures.
For even more texture I added some Bird Ballad trinkets to a few of the cards. All of these fun new Stampin’ Up! papercrafting supplies can be found in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this post.
What do you think? I’m really warming up to these gorgeous new In Colors!
Last year at this time, Stampin’ UP! introduced a color revamp, adding new colors to the beautiful color line up! At that time I decided to switch my ink pad and cardstock storage to “rainbow order”. I have LOVED having it in rainbow order for the past year, as opposed to organized in color families as I had stored them for so many years. Today I am sharing my Rainbow Order Cardstock Storage.
Patty’s Cardstock Storage:
I love my Stamp-n-Storage paper holders. I use them for my 8-1/2×11 cardstock and for my 12×12 designer paper. See them all online here.
If you are a demonstrator and already have your new catalog, you’ll notice that I loosely based this rainbow order on the photo in the catalog on pages 160 and 161. I modified it a little bit, but this is what was pleasing to my eye…
Do what works for you, what is pleasing to your eye and what works with your storage system.

I hope you enjoyed some of those Lemon Lime Twist card ideas. Don’t forget.. NOW is the time to stock up on an extra pack of cardstock in your favorite RETIRING IN COLORS, as well as check your reinker.. make sure you have enough to keep you going with your ink pad!
Of course mine changes from month to month it seems… BUT for the last several months my go-to color has been:
What's so strange about that is….
Orange is not my color.. but I LOVE Grapefruit Grove and how it coordinates so well with SO many Stampin' Up! colors!! I have paired it here today with Mint Macaron.
I created this card with the Detailed Floral Thinlit die cut with Whisper White cardstock, then layered it onto a folded Grapefruit Grove card base. I added stamped flower images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, stamped in Grapefruit grove, and punched leaves with the Leaf punch and Mint Macaron cardstock after stamping the image with the Painted Harvest set.
Tip: you don't have to own 2 colors of ink pads to use a 2-step stamp image.. simply use one color (Grapefruit Grove used here) and stamp off the largest/solid image onto your grid paper first, then stamp it on your cardstock. Then stamp the more detailed image full strength with the same color! This way you get 2 tones of the same color.
Tip for die cutting detailed images:
As shown in my video at the bottom of this post, I found this "Big Shot Sandwich" to be the best when die cutting a detailed image like this Detailed Floral thinlit:
(top of sandwich)
Die UPSIDE DOWN (cutting side facing up)
Thin Die Adapter
Big Shot Platform
(bottom of sandwich)
then be sure to use your Die Brush to easily pop out all of the little pieces. This will all make more sense when you watch the video at the bottom of my post.
Watch the first part of the video below to see how nicely this detailed floral image comes out when you use the die cutting method above! You can skip to about the 10 minute mark in the video if you want to see how perfectly this method works!
Hope you enjoyed today's Grapefruit Grove featured project!
The Stampin' UP! Varied Vases bundle paired with the thick Whisper White note cards can create a very Clean and Simple card design with just a bit of stamping and some punched vases!
I used the Vase Builder punch and 6×6 In Color paper stack make quick work of the vases!
What do you think about these simple, clean cards with white space? It was hard for me to leave the white space, but I liked them when I was all done! 🙂
Each stem is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink, then the flower image is stamped (left to right) with Lovely Lipstick ink, Pineapple Punch ink and Grapefruit Grove ink. I used the thick Whisper White Note cards.. they are GREAT for these clean and simple cards.
All of the vases were quickly punched with the Vase Builder punch and the 6×6 In Color paper stack. All of these supplies are listed at the bottom of this post. Simply click any product photo image to go right to my online Stampin' Up! store anytime to shop!
