In Color Designer Paper Stacks

We have new 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks.  There is a stack for each of the In Color collections, and then one stack for each of our four core color collection.  Remember the ever popular gingham checked paper from the Occasions catalog – well now you can get a gingham check in all 50 Stampin’ Up! colors because it is one of the new patterns in the paper stacks.  On these cards though I used the script words design. 

This is a square card – cut an 8-1/2″ square and then score one side at 4-1/4″ – giving you a 4-1/4″ square card.  And just slip it into our regular medium envelope.  I added strips of the Designer Series paper in the five new in colors.  The Daisy Lane stamp set is the one I featured here – using both sizes of the daisies now that I have both punches.  

See the little scallop edge under the greeting?  That is a half piece of the scallop trim ribbon and I found the easiest way to attach it is with a bit of Tear & Tape. 

If you would like to see a video of this card watch my Facebook Live from June 17th – HERE.

Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray cards

I have some more In Color themed cards for you today.  These two show the Seaside Spray and the Pretty Peacock colors.  Of the five new colors these two are my favorite.  And I’ve used the new Free as a Bird stamp set but without any of the birds.  You can see this card and some others featuring the 2019-2021 In Colors on my Facebook live video from June 17th – HERE.

I love the new little scallop ribbon that comes in our new In Colors.  On these cards I just attached it straight across my front layer.   I used both the small and large flower images from the Free as a Bird stamp set to create the background.  You can mount them both on one block and stamp at the same time – just turn the block as you go to make it more random.

Supply List

  • #149468 Free as a Bird Stamp set
  • #149701 2019-2021 In Color Cardstock Pack
  • #121043 Sahara Sand Cardstock

Colored Dots make fun cards

Another card showcasing the brand new 2019-2021 Stampin’ Up! In Colors.  This one is all about the dots.  It’s a totally different look for this stamp set – do you know what it is?  It’s the Waterfront Stamp set. 

Make the dots in the different colors using the stamp – be sure to clean well in between colors.  I normally start with the lightest color first and then finish with the darkest.  So if I don’t do a good job cleaning I won’t stamp a really dark color into a really light pad.  It’s normally not a problem but sometimes when you start working fast you never know what can happen.  And for cards like this I tend to only open one color ink pad at a time since I’m using the one stamp over and over.  It just cuts down on contaminating the ink pads.  Finish the cards with a couple of punches and some twine.  You could choose any of the five colors for the card base.  I matched the starburst punch and the ink for the words to the card base.

Supply List

  • #146386 Waterfront Stamp set
  • #149701 2019-2021 In Color Cardstock Pack
  • #150087 2019-2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pads  (see note)
  • #124262 Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • #143717 Starburst punch
  • #133782 2″ Circle punch
  • #104430 Stampin’ Dimensionals

NOTE:  Stampin’ Up! is currently working to resolve a quality issue with the Purple Post ink pad so because it is part of the bundle of the five new in color ink pads it is not available to order.  You can order the other four colors individually right now.  The five pack of the markers is available.

In Color Thank You

I introduced the new In Colors on my Facebook Page in a live video on June 17th.  My plans were to post them on my blog last week.  It was one of the things I was going to work on when I went away for a crafting weekend in the mountains.  Once I got up there I realized I didn’t take the photos.  So no blog posts.  I’m catching up this week.  You can see all the cards in my live video – HERE.

So here is the first card I wanted to show you.  It was an idea that one of the SU Artisan Design Team Members shared and I changed up the colors.

This card uses strips of card stock – Basic Black and then our five new In Colors – Rocco Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy.  Try this with other colors too – or even strips of designer paper.  So many possibilities with this idea. 

Supply List

  • #146832 Thank You die
  • #147377 A Big Thank You stamp set
  • #149701 In Color 2019-2021 card stock

Masculine or Graduation card idea

Here is a quick and easy card idea that would work for a masculine card or for a graduation.  Just choose the colors that you need or want.  It’s also a perfect way to use up scraps of designer paper strips.  Sometimes when cutting layers I end up with skinny little strips of paper or card stock left over.  This is the perfect way to use those up.

This particular card used strips from the retired Classic Garage designer series paper.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Tranquil Tide, and Basic Gray.  You could replace the designer paper with strips of card stock or a different designer paper.  The stripes ont he envelope where done with the Stampin’ Write Markers and a ruler. You could easily switch this out for school colors and add a happy graduation greeting.

Supply List

  • #151331 Itty Bitty Greetings
  • #131202 Smoky Slate Color card stock
  • #100730 Whisper White card stock
  • Card stock or Designer Series Paper strips of your choice
  • Stampin’ Write Markers to match
  • #107301 Whisper White Medium Envelopes
  • #132708 Memento ink pad Tuxedo Black

Thanks for stopping by today. This card was included in a Facebook Live video last month. You can view them here on my Facebook Page – click here.

Masculine Card Ideas

I shared several masculine card ideas in a Facebook Live video last month. You can view them here on my Facebook Page – click here. Not all the products are available to order anymore but these ideas are easily adaptable to things you may already have. 

So let’s take a look at them.

I used the Geared Up Garage Designer Series Paper for these but you could choose a different patterned paper with masculine colors and patterns or in some cases use solid colors of card stock.  For this one I cut strips of paper and arranged them on a layer of card stock. I used the Happy Birthday die cut over the top of them all.  There’s not even any stamping on this one.  And for the inside just add a matching layer. 

For this set I cut 3″ strips of the designer paper and added them to a layer of card stock.  I stamped on a small rectangle of white a greeting.  Tie some black cord around and use a knot instead of a bow for a more masculine feel. 

This set again uses the designer paper and this time I cut out the cars from the paper.  I stamped a greeting on a strip of whisper white card stock.  It’s the piece that was left over from cutting the layer for the inside of the card. If you have the Geared Up Garage stamp set you could stamp and cut out the car with the die cut.

I think these ideas would also work to switch out the paper to the Come Sail Away paper.  Maybe I’ll try that later. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
