Some times you just have to create your own color! The days have been cool and gray here in Alabama. So today, I decided it was time to create my own Spring!! I love the colors of spring! Bright yellows, pinks, corals, and shades of green . It is just a happy time of year. To recreate my Spring day, I chose the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper . This paper is so fun to color!
Petal Passion Designer Series Paper
I truly love this paper! The patterns are modern and classy!! The most perfect combination for Designer Series Paper!!! If you choose to color the paper it completely changes the look of the paper . My favorite way to color this paper is with Stampin’ Blends. The Stampin’ Blends are Stampin’ Up! version of Alcohol Markers. They will be available soon! Due to popularity they are currently sold out! But, they will be back soon! Stay tune for more!!
- The card base is Powder Pink cut at 4 1/4 inches and scored at 5 1/2 inches. I call this the Brian way, cause he always makes his cards this way! And Brian was the first person I noticed to do this years ago.
- The layer is Tranquil Tide
- After coloring the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, I had a 6×4 piece, it was cut down to fit the card.
- The final step was to pop up the sentiment from the Color Me Happy Stamp Set
You guys know I love to decorate my envelopes . I did something a little different for this envelope!
- I made a square using a t-ruler and a pencil .
- The second step was to add the stamped images from Petal Palette stamp set
- Then, I added the square with a fine line pen. After adding the ink lines, I erased the pencil lines
- You can see some pencil lines within the square . That is for the address. They will help me right straight . After I address the envelope, I will erase the pencil lines

A few weeks ago , I was head over heals involved in a copic coloring class. Copic jumpstart by Sandy Allnock. I loved every minuet of this class. And I can not even begin to tell you how much I learned form Sandy. So, if you are looking for a great place to learn Copic coloring check out her class. I only own a few Copics but, I do have a set of Prismacolor markers. They are both alcohol markers. The Prismacolors preformed very will for this class. Today’s card is a result of one of my coloring projects for this class. I fell in love with the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set Love You Lots during this class. The elephant, frog, and ladybugs are just so much fun to color…
Are they not just the cutest little sketched animals ever!!! After spending time coloring the image I decided to keep the rest of the card quite simple. I have been trying to teach myself how to embrace open space on a card. Some times this can be tricky…. But, with a well colored image it really does not take much to make it pop off the page. And besides after coloring a image that takes time. You don’t want it to be overshadowed by everything going on with a card. I did decide to pair the elephant with “A Big Thanks” from the stamp set Perfectly WrappedThis is another must have stamp set from the new catalog. I am already loving having the bold sentiments in my stash!!!!
Here are a few details:
- I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink . When stamping I masked the little mouse.
- Then colored the image using my gray Prismacolor markers.
- I stamped the sentiment with the same black ink
- The card base is made from cherry cobbler card stock. The final card size is 4×4
- For a quick and easy envelop I used the envelope punch board and a sheet of cherry cobbler card stock.
Be sure to check out Sandy’s Copic Jumpstart class. It is defiantly worth the time! She has loaded it full of information.
Here is a supply list:
Stampin’ Up! – Tuxedo black Memento Ink, Perfectly Wrapped stamp set, Love You Lots stamp set, Cherry Cobbler card stock, Whisper White card stock, envelope punch board and multipurpose glue
Other supplies: Alcohol markers of your choice Copic or Prismacolors work great!
