Faux Dry Embossing with dies & Petal Palette

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

With today's card, we do a little Faux Dry Embossing and I'll share a twist on Coloring and Blending.  It's also my first card with the beautiful Petal Palette Bundle.  Wow, is this a gorgeous a gorgeous and versatile bundle!


Petal Palette Stampin' Up!
Petal Palette Card Idea

I love coloring and blending with Stampin' Blends, but I didn't have all the colors that I wanted.  It was time to experiment.  I colored and blended the small flowers with my Night of Navy Stampin' Blends (Alcohol Markers).  I wanted the leaves to be Lemon Lime Twist, so I colored them with a bit of Lemon Lime Twist ink and a Blender Pen.  For shading, I simply went back and added more color.  For the pink flowers, I combined both coloring techniques.  First, I laid down a base color with my Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend, then I layered on Powder Pink ink with my blender pen.  And that's my Twist on Blending and Coloring.


Faux Dry Embossing Technique

There are some really intricate dies included in the Petals & More Thinlits Dies that lend themselves to Faux Embossing.  To give the look of dry embossing with dies, simply die cut your images with the same color as the background, then glue the die cuts directly on top of the background.  The dies fool the eye into thinking that it may be dry embossing.  Hint:  For best results using intricate dies, use the Precision Base Plate.  The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream.


How to Make a Card

 For a fun twist, try adding a panel of colored card stock to the inside of a white card base.  For today's card, I inserted Lemon Lime Twist.

How to Make a Simple Love Birds Card

Color Me Happy Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,  

Today's Simple Love Birds Card is all about the coloring and blending.  It also says, "I Love You" in a beautiful way.  Let me walk you through the steps to Make this Card.


Color Me Happy & Stampin' Blends

Have you tried coloring and blending with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers yet?  They really are fabulous!

 

Stampin' Blends Coloring & Blending Tips & Tricks

One really cool thing about Stampin' Blends is that you don't need special paper to color.  Coloring on Whisper White Card stock works like a charm.

I colored & blended my birds and flower in 3 steps.  First, I colored with the lighter shade.  Then, I added shading with my dark marker.  And finally, I went back with my light marker and blended the two.  Tip:  You'll notice that each marker has two ends.  The fine line indicates the fine tip end and the thicker line indicates the brush tip end.  Use the fine tip for coloring tight spaces and details and use the brush tip for larger spaces.

You can use the Color lifter to soften colors, and texture, clean up edges or create highlights.

Care Tips:  Replace the cap right away and store horizontally for longer lasting markers.

The Color Me Happy Stamp set is a great set to learn the ins and outs of coloring & blending, plus it is pretty stinkin' cute.  You won't find the Color Me Happy Stamp set in any Stampin' Up! Catalog, but it is in the Stampin' Blends Brochure and is available to order.   See the supply list at the bottom of this post. 

 

Color Me Happy & Stampin' Blends
A Few More Card Making Tips

I used the Light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend Marker to color my doily and to lightly color behind my sentiment.  Then, I lightly splattered just a teeny bit of Rich Razzleberry Ink across the face of my card.

The "i love you" sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrase stamp set which include sentiments for so many occasions-thank you, congratulations, thinking of love, love you. Lift up your friends, send good thoughts to your family. There are 18 stamps in this stamp set for lots and lots of options.

For a splash of sunshine, I added a trio of Tutti-Frutti Self-adhesive sequins.
