Coloring Springtime Foils Paper with Stampin’ Blends Markers

The Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper is one of three new rewards items, now available during Sale-a-bration!  It was released on February 16th, and can ONLY be earned with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) through March 31st!  This gorgeous new paper features 3 sheets each of 4 different foil designs on white paper, and measures 12 x 12 inches in size.  All of the designs are printed in silver, gold, and/or rose gold foil, giving a very elegant look to this paper!  Patterns include polka dots, florals, and stripes:

For today’s card, I used the second pattern shown in the picture above.  It features large roses and leaves in rose gold foil.  I colored the paper with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers, and used both the light and dark versions of each color.  The paper is very thick, with an almost glossy finish, so the finished result of the blending is different than on regular paper, but is still very pretty!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Whisper White card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Basic Black middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

DSP Layer:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Basic Black and Whisper White scraps for sentiment piece

I used a sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, as well as the Pretty Label punch to frame it.  To make the backing layer of the sentiment, I cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the same punch and cut it in half lengthwise, then adhered it to the back of the stamped sentiment piece, slightly offset to look like a separate layer.  I also embellished the card with 3/8 inch Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon, as well as pearls colored with the dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Marker to match the color of the flowers!

While I love the look of this paper with added color, it also looks great as is!  (You can find some gorgeous samples on Pinterest, or just by simply Googling “Stampin’ Up Springtime Foils Paper”.)  I will be posting another card later this week where I did not color the paper (though with a different pattern from the package).  I hope you’ll check back later this week to see it!

Remember, Sale-a-Bration is ending March 31st!  Once it’s over, this gorgeous paper will be gone for good!  To get yours, simply place an order of $50 or more in the online store before March 31st!

Thanks for checking in today!  Enjoy your day!

Sending Love and Hugs to You

Earlier this year, I did an “In Color Week” where I posted a new card each day on my Facebook page that featured one of the 2017-2019 In Colors.  I modified the one I made back then for Fresh Fig for my World Card Making Event and came up with this!  I simply added an extra Lemon Lime Twist layer behind the sentiment, and changed the sentiment as well. I love this sentiment because it can be used for so many different occasions.  It is from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, which is one of my favorite new sets from the Annual Catalog!  Don’t forget, during the month of October, I will donate $5 for each Ribbon of Courage Bundle purchased through me to Breast Cancer Research!

Ribbon of Courage and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  During the month of October, I will donate $5.00 for every Ribbon of Courage bundle purchased through me to Breast Cancer research.  This bundle contains both the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, as well as the Support Ribbon Framelits.  Although the ribbons are the most striking part of this set, it also contains beautiful sentiments and images that can be used for almost any occasion!

A little background on this set:

The Ribbon of Courage stamp set was designed by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Patty Bennett.  She designed it in honor of her mother and grandmother who both battled Breast Cancer.  The set was unveiled in April of 2017 at Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event for demonstrators, and we all fell in love with it!  SO MANY beautiful cards and other projects have been created with this set since then!  Simply Google “Stampin’ Up Ribbon of Courage Bundle” to see some of the many, many amazing creations that have been made with the items in this bundle!

As I mentioned above, this set is truly a very versatile set! The simple and elegant sentiments, and hearts and flowers images make it useful for so many other occasions! And not only are ribbons used to raise awareness for causes related to cancer, but they are also used for military causes, Autism, and so much more!

For more information about this set, or to order, please visit my Stampin’ Up! online store here.
