Fun Ways with Designer Series – Part 8

Today’s Fun Way with Designer Series Paper is to get out your colouring tools and to colour it in. Stampin’ Up! offers so many choices by way of colouring tools – Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blends, Ink Pads and when you combine these with your sponges, sponge daubers and brayers you can achieve unique effects.

Colour it in

I’ve taken a piece of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and die cut it with the Celebration Label Dies to create this card. The printed image was a light grey so I was able to colour the flowers with a combination of Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. The best part about colouring pre-printed images is that the shading is already printed so you don’t need to do any shading with your colours.

I added another piece of Peony Garden DSP at the back and tied in my sentiment in Gray Granite cardstock. The sweet Butterfly Gems in Purple Posy are the perfect addition to this pretty card. I showcased this technique on another card earlier today. You can view that here.

Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 6

Today’s fun tip for using our Designer Series Paper is all about texture. I am a huge fan of embossing folders as they add instant texture to projects with very little effort. With a single run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine Stampin’ Up!’s various embossing folders will create a raised design on your cardstock or DSP.

Emboss it

This sympathy card uses the Peony Garden suite. I embossed a piece of the marbled paper with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. Add a stamped and die cut image, simple sentiment, ribbon and you’ve got a quick card which has texture to it as well.

The By the Dock stamp set is a really fun set and makes great men’s cards. I created a ripple look for the water theme by running some In Good Taste DSP through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. The kayak was coloured in Stampin’ Blends with the jetty stamped in Early Espresso on Soft Suede cardstock.

Don’t you just love the little fish in the Artistry Blooms DSP water? I coloured the fish with Stampin’ Blends directly over the Designer Series Paper and the colour showed up well over it.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – October 2020

Welcome to our monthly Colour Combo Blog Hop. Our colour challenge this month is Mossy Meadow, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate. Don’t you love it when you have to think outside your usual realm of colour palettes? Well, this one did get me thinking and usually I try to build up from the neutral colour as this gives me a great foundation to start on.

Colour Combo Blog Hop Next Button, October 2020

I first looked for some Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate that would work for this card. Stampin’ Up! has a range of DSP in their classic colours which is great for all projects as you will always have coordinating DSP. I also chose a piece of marbled Peony Garden DSP for the tag (although this is not very visible in the photo). It has a slight hint of a shade of Gray (for the purposes of this challenge, it is Smoky Slate!).

The peony was stamped on Fluid 100 watercolour paper in Stazon ink. At first,I was first going to colour the image in Watercolour pencils but then realized there was no Mossy Meadow Watercolour pencil so I had to change my plan. I decided to use Stampin’ Write markers instead with Water Painters to colour it in. This is a technique that I haven’t tried before with Water Painters and I loved the effect it gave.

It is like watercolouring because Stampin’ Write Markers are water based. I didn’t realize how effective or easy it would be. Definitely a technique that’s going to be used again, given that we have 51 colours in our Stampin’ Write Markers range.

I added some extra leaves, die cut from the World of Good Designer Series Paper using the Forever Flourishing Dies. Combined with the watercoloured leaves this created a lovely full bouquet.

Forever Blossoms Arrow Fold Card

Hi,

I’ve got a fancy fold card to share with you today. I was asked by one of my friends to make a 30th birthday card for her daughter. I thought a fancy fold card would be a nice touch for this special occasion. The Arrow Fold Card is one I had seen but not tried and I thought I’d give it a go. surprisingly, it is a very easy fold to master. 

I chose my card base colour first and then my Designer Series Paper. After this, I worked all my elements around it. The Peony Garden DSP looks so pretty against the Purple Posy cardstock.

I coloured the flowers using all the purple shades adding a touch of Dark So Saffron in the centre. The leaves were coloured in Mint Macaron and Just Jade. I added a little bit of Light Old Olive to add more shading.

To enhance the bouquet of blossoms, I added more die cut leaves and flowers. The Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP is beautiful and I love the softness it adds to projects. I die cut my small flowers from it and then shaded them with the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend which picked up the embossed section of the DSP.

The inside of the card has been kept simple with a DSP sheet that could be written over.I added the ’30’ die cut from the beautiful Velveteen Paper using the Playful Alphabet Dies. These dies are a must have in your craft room as you can make any words and numbers so they are perfect for any occasion.

I’ve got a tutorial for all you lovely subscribers so you can make this card at home. Click here to download.
