A long time favorite is when Stampin’ Up! has a pack of patterned paper that is black & white. It’s easy to add just one color to it and have it work for so many things. There’s a new pack of paper that has all black and white prints on one side but the other side is colored. That’s even better because it gives you the option to work with the color palette that Stampin’ Up! created for the paper OR to use the black and white side with any color that you want. It’s the new Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. And what makes it even better is that you can get this paper for free with a qualifying order!
The Black & White patterns allow you to highlight what you want by adding color to just that portion. For this note card I used the Stampin’ Blends to color in just the butterflies so they pop of the page – almost like they are flying. This is a quick card using the Whisper White Note cards and envelopes. I cut a piece of the Designer paper 3″ wide and 5″ long and attached to the front of the card aligned with the right hand edge. Then tied some Basic Black Baker’s Twine around it. There isn’t even any stamping on this card. Just coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.
