I have seen on Pinterest and around some beautiful projects colouring this gorgeous print from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I have been saving this small piece of the paper for some time so I could colour it. I finally got to do it the other day. I have to say I was a little nervous. If I messed it up I didn’t have any more. It turned out OK. I coloured the piece with the Stampin’ Blends. They colour so smoothly and easily.
I kept the card simple. I layered the piece on to some black card and then a Pool Party card base. The “celebrate” was from the Celebrate You Thinlits and I cut one from Silver Foil and one from white card. Then off-set them to adhere them together.
Such gorgeous paper. I hope you have grabbed some before it is gone??
Have a great day,
I have only recently got the Petal Palette stamps and the Petals and More Thinlits. I have had time to play with them this past week. I thought I would start showing you some of the cards I have made.
This card today is actually the last card I made. I loved it so much I couldn’t wait to show you. 🙂
I stamped the flowers with Memento then coloured them with the Rich Razzleberry and the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I cut them with the matching dies. (no fussy cutting required!!!). I had planned to use them on a card I saw but was running out of time that day. In the night I was thinking about the card. You do that don’t you. 😉 This card came to me so I made it the next day as soon as I had time.
The White card is embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. While that was available during Sale-A-Bration it will be in the next catalogue. Under the White card I added a strip of the Copper Foil sheet and adhered them straight to the Rich Razzleberry Card base. The sentiment was stamped and cut with the matching die in the Thinlits set and sponged lightly with ink around the edge. I played around with the positioning of the flowers and sentiment. I think that took the longest!! Once I worked out something I was happy with I raised up the flowers with Dimensionals as well as the sentiment.
I hope you like it.
I will be back soon with some more cards with this bundle. I must say it is a gorgeous one and I am glad I have finally got to play with it.
The Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper has been HUGELY popular for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got it yet? You really have to jump on this THIS WEEK as Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on Saturday. Here is the gorgeous paper if you haven’t seen it.
For the next 3 posts I thought I would show you different ways you can colour the paper. Of course it is very elegant and classy just left on it’s own too.
For these cards I coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends. They glide on so easily.
For the card above I used the Dark Pink Pirouette in the centres and the Light Rich Razzleberry in the edges. The leaves were Old Olive. The sentiment is from Beautiful Day and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I had to finish it with a few loops of Gold Thread.
The card below was coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. (Don’t look too closely 😉 )
The coloured piece was adhered to a mat from Gold Foil. I embossed the white piece in the top 2/3 of the Whisper White card piece. Tying around some Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon. The sentiment is from another Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms. It was all adhered to an Old Olive Card base.
Stop by again tomorrow for Part 2 colouring with the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.
I really love the effect of using the Stampin’ Blends over heat embossing (AKA Black Magic Technique). It seems to really give a vibrancy to the images. I showed one with the Epic Celebrations set yesterday. Today it is the Beautiful Peacock set.
The Beautiful Peacock set is one of the Sale-A-Bration Free choices. I haven’t used this a lot but it is quite a fun set. I have seen some fantastic samples with it.
To create the Black Magic Effect
Stamp your image in Versamark and Heat Emboss in White Embossing Powder. When cooled colour over the embossing with the Stampin’ Blends. (The Blends will not be available to order now until late May but store this idea in mind for later if you haven’t got them yet). The Blends colours I used were the Light Old Olive, the Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light Rich Razzleberry.
I stamped the Peacock body on a scrap piece of black card and then coloured it and cut it out with scissors. This was then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.
To finish the card stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card and cut with the smallest of the Lots of Labels Framelits. I added some loops of Silver Thread under the label piece before raising it up off the card with Dimensionals and added some Rhinestones in the centres of the Flowers. The card base is Sweet Sugarplum.
Only a week left for Sale-A-Bration. I am sad with so many of these great sets leaving. Don’t miss out to grab your Free set with your qualifying order.

Just over one week left of Sale-A-Bration now. I still have a number of cards to share with you using these fun, free Sale-A-Bration items. So this next week we are cramming them all in.
This Epic Celebrations set is so cool and such a good set for the “teens”.
The stamped and coloured sneaker piece was made a few weeks ago now when I made the coloured set. You can see that post -> HERE. This piece was left over when I was testing the results. I thought it would be worth keeping and using. To make that I stamped the sneaker in Versamark and then heat embossed in White powder. After it cooled a little I went over it with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. The black card piece was then cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
I have shown you some Brusho Crystals backgrounds in the last couple of posts too. Since I had a piece of the inked Brusho samples lying around still I thought I would add that to the card. They seemed to match in well. To create this piece I sprinkled over some Shimmery White card with the Yellow Crystals and the Gamboge colour. Then the piece was misted with water with the Spritzer.
To finish the card, I embossed a piece of white card with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Then the piece was stamped with the sentiment from Party Pandas and the “spots” from Epic Celebrations. The card base is Pumpkin Pie.
***URGENT NOTE ON THE STAMPIN’ BLENDS:
Due to a huge demand for the Stampin’ Blends over the past few months the supply of these are very low. New supplies won’t be in stock for some time so Stampin’ Up! have made the decision to make these unavailable to order until late May. SO, if you want any (or all) and you can’t wait until late May then ORDER NOW – TONIGHT BY 8PM AEST. I will be finalising an order tonight so contact me OR order online -> HERE.

I have just received the new Blossoming Basket Bundle which is a new Sale-A-Bration choice. I had a little colour with it on the weekend.
Here is a quick HOW-TO.
Emboss the Whisper White card with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.
Stamp the basket from the set in Memento Black on Thick Whisper White and colour with the Stampin’ Blends. Cut the basket out with scissors (sorry no framelits for this one). Just a tip to cut inside the handle: snip the handle just at the flowers on the right hand side. Then cut the white section on the inside of the handle. Then add a tiny dab of Multipurpose adhesive just behind the flowers and adhere the handle back in place. No one will even know but it makes cutting so much easier. Stamp the little tag and the butterfly as well and colour those with the Stampin’ Blends also.
Cut a circle from Pink Pirouette card using one of the largest circles from the Layering Circle Framelits. Run the piece through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder.
Stamp the sentiment from You’re Inspiring Set on crumb Cake card. Punch out with the Duet Banner Punch. Punch another banner out in Pink Pirouette. Cut the pink banner in half and adhere these to the back of the Crumb Cake one with the ends of the pink extending past the Crumb Cake banner.
To assemble the card: Wrap around some White Organza Ribbon around the white card. Adhere to a Crumb Cake base. Raise up the Pink Pirouette Circle off the white card and raise up the Basket off the circle. Raise up the Sentiment banner down the bottom.
I coloured over the flowers and the butterfly with the Clear Wink of Stella Pen although I didn’t take a close up of the flowers. It is very sparkly though.
This is a really lovely stamp set and very easy to colour especially with the Blends. This Bundle is one of the free choices for Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order over $180. There is just over 2 weeks left so you don’t want to leave this too long if you want to grab the Bundle.
See it in my store -> HERE now. You can order from there too and be sure to check off your Sale-A-Bration choice before you finish your order.
Thanks for looking.
I was going to share these cards with you as part of a Bloghop tonight BUT I was too busy making the cards and fussing around with other things that when I came to register for the Bloghop I found that it was full already. That’s a bit disappointing. 😦 It doesn’t matter big time really I guess. I can still share them with you. I hope that you like them.
The theme for the Bloghop was colouring. Stampin’ Up! have a great number of choices for colouring with the Inkpads, markers, Blends, Watercolour Pencils and now the Brusho Crystals. So many choices what should I do?? I am no way an expert in colouring but I have been trying my hand at it a bit recently. I decided in the end to go with the Stampin’ Blends.
I used a technique you might have seen around a bit. The Black Magic technique. It’s an oldie but a goodie. It’s colouring over White heat embossed images. You can use pencils or the markers.
STEPS TO CREATE YOUR BLACK MAGIC CARDS
Of course you can use a multiple of colours for your images but I thought for this particular image one colour worked better. I made a set of cards in 4 different colours.
To create it:
1. First stamp your image on black card in versamark and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder. Don’t forget to use your Embossing Buddy to help reduce the little stray specks. 🙂
2. Allow to cool slightly and then colour over it with the Stampin’ Blends. I went over the image twice to intensify the colours.
3. I coloured some of the White Organza Ribbon with the Stampin’ Blends to match and layered it on a strip of the Silver Foil. The sentiment was stamped on the coloured card and cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and that was raised up with Dimensionals.
4. The black card was adhered to a piece of Silver Foil. TIP: cut the centre from the foil so you can use it for something else. It is only getting hidden after all. Before you adhere this piece to your card base stamp your card base with the “earphone” image in the set in the same colour as the card.
This Epic Celebrations set is one of the free choices for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got your set yet? It’s great for the young teen cards.
So I hope you like this “epic” set. Thanks for stopping by.
I have some exciting news to share with you tomorrow so stay tuned.
Have a good night,
This project for today’s Wednesday’s WOW! is a card we made at class a couple of weeks ago using the Stampin’ Blends. I thought it might be a good technique to share with you.
I have used the Lift Me Up set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then coloured it with the Blends markers.
Do you want to see how to do this?
I haven’t done a video as yet but I have an earlier tutorial from some time ago using the Blendablilities. They work the same way. To find out head -> HERE to see the blog post.
Well, you can make any colour you like!
You might have seen you can colour any embellishment like the Rhinestones and Pearls or ribbon with the Blends BUT I had a play with something else the other day. Did you know you can colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Blends. Now before you rush off and try it there are a couple of important notes.
** Use the Brush Tip end of your marker and only GENTLY brush over the Glimmer Paper. Too hard a rub may damage the nibs of your marker.
** Only colour the area exposed so you don’t waste the ink. You can see further below.
Here is the card I made with colouring the Glimmer Paper.
This is using the set Color Me Happy now available. I have coloured the bird and the flower with the Stampin’ Blends. Plus I coloured the Adhesive Pearl in too. When I assembled the card I embossed the White card mat with the Softly Falling Embossing Flower and added a strip of white that was cut with the Flourish Thinlits under the Merry Little Christmas DSP. (Don’t just keep this paper for Christmas!).
Getting back to the Scallop Circle. I cut a scallop Circle using the Layering Circles Thinlits from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then coloured just around the edge of it gently with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends marker. You don’t want to press hard with the marker. Also, you only need to colour the outside edge that will be seen.
So what colour Glimmer Paper will you make?? Have fun with it.
Have a great weekend,
I have been sharing a lot of projects using the Stampin’ Blends. I am really enjoying them. So easy to use and I am feeling like an artist!!! Well, maybe I have a little way to go. A few weeks ago I played with the Blends with the Beautiful You set. So I thought I would show you these in Watch It Wednesday #11.
Here are the 3 cards but I will show you them individually further below.
I did colour these a few weeks ago and I have worked on my colouring a bit more but you might find it helpful.
Here is the video for your enjoyment.
Here are each of the cards so you can see them close-up. I have kept the layout similar but created them in different colours and changed the Embossing Folders.
Night of Navy with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.
Rich Razzleberry with the Petal Burst Folder.
Cherry Cobbler with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.
Did you notice the Rhinestones?? You can colour them with the Blends too.
So I hope you might have a play with them. They are really not hard at all to use and I love the effect with them.
Thanks for stopping by,
