What’s your One Must Have Color?

 

What is your one MUST HAVE Stampin' UP! Color?

Of course mine changes from month to month it seems… BUT for the last several months my go-to color has been:

Grapefruit Grove!

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.

 

  Abstract Impressions floral card featuring Stampin' UP! Detailed Floral thinlit die. Video Tutorial tips by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

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.

 

Abstract Impressions floral stamps from Stampin' UP!  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

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)

Clear Plate

Cardstock

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!

Do you love Grapefruit Grove?

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!

Colorful Varied Vases filled with In Color Flowers

 

Are you ready for a huge pop of color!? Stampin' Up! In Colors to be exact!? I used all 5 new Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Colors on these cards featuring the Varied Vases stamp set and the Garden Impressions designer paper!

Varied Vases card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I made about 15 or so of these cards, trying out all of the different, gorgeous, floral patterns in the Garden Impressions 6×6 paper stack, and I used all 5 of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors from the 2018-2020 6×6 paper stack, too!  I punched the vases out of the In Color paper stack, and cut 3"x4" pieces of Garden Impressions paper for my cards.

The focal point is the largest square from the Stitched Shape Framelits pack in Whisper White, and the scalloped square is from the Layering Square framelits, in various In Colors.  The card base is a thick Whisper White top fold card.

 

Varied Vases card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 I started by stamping the stems in Call me Clover ink, then added the punched vases, and filled in the flower images with Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove.  It's easy to see right through the images with the photopolymer stamps!

I also punched tulips with the Vase Builder punch and added them with glue dots to the center vase.

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 8-1/2×11 cardstock holders here

Be sure to click the option to include the 8-1/2×11 or 12×12 paper holder label system to match your paper holder size.. I find them super helpful.. here is how they look:

Lovely Floral Embossing Folder Card Idea

New Catalog Sneak Peeks!

One of the wonderful new products in the Stampin' Up! Share What You Love suite bundles is the Lovely Floral Embossing folder!! Even "white on white" this embossed image is gorgeous!!!

Lovely Floral embossing folder flower card featuring Stampin' UP! Share What You Love suite supplies and 2018-2020 In Colors, by Patty Bennett

I used my new 2018-2020 In Color Markers to color the floral image for this card.  The image is part of the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack which is now sold out.  It was on the retiring list and it's gone, but you can easily stamp and color any floral image to recreate the look on this card.
