No-Line Coloring Technique

No Line Coloring Technique

Hello Friends,

I've had a lot of questions lately about coloring so I thought that I would share with you today the soft and lovely No-Line Coloring Technique for cards.  It may surprise you to know that I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set for today's card.  By coloring the stamped images with darker colors the stamp set takes on a whole new look.  The flowers look more like old-fashioned roses rather than magnolias.  Let me show you how it's done.

Tea Time & Floral Romance

Tea Time Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Last week, I said that I would be sharing more ideas for your Floral Romance Designer Paper.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Today, I used the Floral Romance Vellum & my Tea Time dies to make this pretty Tea Set.  This makes for a very simple card.  The only coloring that I did was the little add on flower on the tea cup.  Here's how I did it.

Tea Together Stampin' Up!

Using Versamark ink and Gold Emboss powder, I stamped & embossed  my teacup and teapot.  Then I cut them out with my FREE (thanks to Sale-a-Bration) Tea Time Dies.  I also cut a second Whisper White set to back my vellum set.  Hint:  Apply your adhesive behind the darker parts of your vellum paper, so that it won't show through.

Tea Time Stampin' Up!
I stamped one additional flower as a finishing touch with my Tea Together Stamp set.  Then, I cut it out with my Tea Time Dies and colored with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Petal Pink Stampin' Blends.

I've been having lots of fun with my Tea Time dies and Tea Together stamps.  See some past Tea Time projects below.

Ribbon of Courage

Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, I'm using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  It was designed for Breast Cancer Awareness, but it is so much more.  The sentiments are full of faith and love and they are done with a playful mix of dancing fonts and print.  Besides the obvious support ribbons, the Support Ribbon die set also surprises us with lovely detailed flower and leaf dies and several hearts.

Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up!

I cut the flower from Gingham Gala Design Paper Paper. 

It gives it a really cheerful yellow and white look.

Simple Card Making Tips

The pretty leaf paper done in Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White was taken from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper.  You'll be seeing more of this gorgeous paper put to work next week.

All the dies except for the ovals are Support Ribbon Framelits Die set.  I especially like the flower and leaf dies.  They are so unexpected in this set.  

The Ovals were cut with the Layering Ovals die set.  I stamped a sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with Pear Pizzaz ink onto my oval.  The heart was stamped with Real Red Ink.

My favorite part of today's card is the eclectic mix of papers and dies and the way the come together.  


Color Throwdown

A Big Thanks to Color Throwdown for today's pretty spring color combination.  I used Pear Pizzaz and Real Red along with Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Paper.
